Last Man Standing in the Arena is a great way to test your power and your wits against other players in one-on-one battle.|
a. 3 sortie system
Last Man Standing isnâ€™t just a battle of brawn. You must divide your squads tactically into 3 separate sorties to engage in individual battles. Each sortie will happen in one row on the battlefield, and play out separately from the other two.
Your squads in one row will be unable to help squads in the other row, so you need to think carefully about all possible combinations of your squads and potential combinations of enemy squads when choosing which entrance for your heroes to use into the battle.
b. Victory Conditions
There are only two ways to win in Last Man Standing:
1. Defeat all enemy squads. Simple, if the enemy has no squads left in any row and you do, victory will be yours.
2. Win sorties in 2 rows. If you have squads remaining in 2 rows, and the enemy only has squads remaining in 1, you will be the victor.
1. The defensive side is favored, so if the attacker has squads remaining in one row, the defender in another, and no squads are in the third, it will be declared a defensive victory.
2. If squads in a row somehow fight for 100 rounds without ending, the defensive side will be considered the victor in that row.
A perfect strategy in LMS would mean that you would win in at least 2 rows, no matter how your opponent divides their squads.
A solid tactic is dividing most of your squads between two rows and then putting a smaller number of squads in one row as backup. When attacking, the number of squads and the unit type should be well balanced, because you donâ€™t know what youâ€™ll be up against. Of course, if you have an idea of how your opponentâ€™s defenses are set, you should divide your squads to counter that and it should be easy.
On defense, you should change things up often so players wonâ€™t learn how to counter your defenses.
We wish you luck in finding the most effective deployment of squads!
