Minmaxing in the Box
Yey, another blog about it! Woo Hoo!

Seen some teams appear recently with this tactic in mind.

It's not big and it's not clever. (Well maybe it's a little bit clever in some terms)

/boo

There are some teams that give the Box a bad name. Let's not put any new coaches off by seeing an increase in these teams or giving them crazy ideas.

Fun for both sides! Hip hip Hooray!

(I've had a very long day, in fact I'm still at work and losing the will to live.)

Is it really possible since the changes?
Posted by harvestmouse on 2015-10-14 19:53:56
Sure. I think more 'sweet spotting' is what the better coaches do. Find a TV area that's particularly good for a team fairly low on TV and camp there.
Posted by koadah on 2015-10-14 20:06:11
Which tactic? 1000-1100 zons & pact?
Posted by mdd31 on 2015-10-14 20:06:25
I do not understand. I create teams and battle in the box. I only know victory and glory. I do not know of what you speak.
Posted by Throweck on 2015-10-14 20:09:09
No Re-Rolls for example. OK so not minmaxing to the extreme but enough to be fleecing the system.

@mdd31 - You Sir, have got it!
Posted by Mr_Foulscumm on 2015-10-14 20:11:54
Not seen it.

Any examples? ;)
Posted by Throweck on 2015-10-14 20:14:08
It would be wrong of me to name and shame Fouly, you little teaser ;p

Posted by pythrr on 2015-10-14 20:27:39
minmax all mens
Posted by pythrr on 2015-10-14 20:28:08
1100 pact are the worst, as are CDs with 6 blockers and 5 hobos

Posted by koadah on 2015-10-14 20:28:10
Send us a PM Throweck. Otherwise it didn't happen. ;)

New coaches are likely to be eaten for breakfast whatever team the experienced coach puts out. I thought we were telling them to start in Ranked.

@mdd31: Once you are properly CPOMbed up you'll be fine. ;)
Posted by Mr_Foulscumm on 2015-10-14 20:32:26
Just a little bit of name and shame never hurt anyone! :D
Posted by koadah on 2015-10-14 20:36:38
Surely it's not naming & shaming unless you name a name.

If you meant all linewomen + 1 POMB blitzer you should have said so.
Posted by BillBrasky on 2015-10-14 20:56:55
I name & shame myself!

Fear my Wood!

Bill's getting his wood out again. Take Cover!
Posted by Mr_Foulscumm on 2015-10-14 23:34:36
Bill, this is a min/max heads-up-little-bit-of-whine blog. :D

It's not a max/max shirtcopter blog. :(
Posted by thoralf on 2015-10-15 04:45:54
Why "min/max"? It does not seem to be related to the min-max theorem. A minimax algorithm finds the move that gives the most out of the minimum your opponent can give you. This means you are the one who maxes, while your opponent minz.

Perhaps "max/min" would be more accurate, since it may allude to a maximin search, i.e. finding a path where you find the minimal TV that will maximize payoff. Interestingly, the Wiki page says that John Rawls' theory of justice rests on the idea to maximin all the small menz.

Everyone should cut some RRs. Running on Leader and skills only is pretty extreme, but most teams can probably get by on 2, if not 1 after you've got enough block and an AG 4 Sure Hands player for the ball.

Just recently cut my Box Flings from 6 to 5, now there's some minmax. Considering running on 4!
