If we're talking RTS style then definitely Defense. Straight out attacking is for little children because they can't grasp the concept of Strategy and tactics. Without a defense you're history; thus you build a nice strong defense to hold the enemy off while you build up your forces to take them out. Of course your opponent is likely to have some sort of defense as well so you will have to be smart to take him out.

So many of you miss the concept of this thread.
Attack OR defense
No, you do not have both.
Woohoo! I'm using my extremely high defense until I can use my stupidly low offense to kill this guy in one shot!
Or...
Hey, I'm going to bash away little by little on this mofo until he has nothing left! His attacks aren't even scratching me! But damn, this guy sure lasts a long time...
Get the point?

True enough. . . but a good defense offers a means to retaliate against the offense. . . As defense hinders offense, a good defense would no doubt last longer against a good offense, than say, another good offense would. . . So if that everything that was blown up had a good defense to begin with, I think it would have just as high a chance at victory as the offense would. . . or something like that. . .

Of course if everything was already blown up, then you really wouldn't need a good defense. . .



The only reason a good defense would last longer then a good offense is because the person on offense would be to busy winning. This isn't real life, in video games, 90% of the time defense means losing. (Unless the person on offense is retarded, in which you shouldn't be doing a defense in the first place...)


LOL!! Even in MMOs higher defense is retarded because you use more potions and it takes longer to kill. If you have a higher attack you can kill weaker enemies faster than a person with a high defense could kill a higher level enemy.

Its like a blade in Flyff. You kill less enemies at once than a knight but you can even it out by killing enemies faster.

Also one hitting someone is funnier than hitting someone 10 times. Its like would you rather shoot someone in the legs and arms or would you rather shoot them in the head/body?

My personal preference:

For MMORPG

Offense = faster grind/leveling. Start with attack then stack defense after level caps.

For fighting game

Start with defense to get a read on opponent's movements/pattern/whatever. Then attack.


You'd rather let Steve Fox start a combo and completely own you than to attack first? Btw Steve has a couple combos that are endless.

In MMO's defense (Tank builds mostly) are utter shit for PVP lulz.


In Cabal tank builds aren't TOO bad if you're like an FS other than that you're most likely doomed. It is funny to watch people only hit you for 1 damage though.

In most games Attack usually means defence. If ppl sit there and camp its usually game over in team based and strategy type games.

Often build traps. Stealth. So pretty much a little bit of both. Games that this applies to for me: COD4, chess, and go.
