So last night I did my first ever Brenner match, with some LS mates. We didn't actually play the game, just used it to duel each other. The other two players were PLD/RDM and BLU/NIN, and I was RDM/BLU. In the one-on-one matches, I easily bested both of them, although the BLU certainly put up a fight in the 3rd and 4th rematches. My question is about the 2-on-1 match we did after that, which I'll get to in a minute.
My strategy for the PLD was: minimal TP feed; this PLD has Atonement, which really hurts, bad. I was his second duel, and I saw him use it to win 3/3 against the BLU (since BLU spells feed so much TP, he'd just Sentinel to ride out the Big-3 Zerg while meleeing, then Shield Bash > Atonement to finish off the BLU once his shadows were down). So in my fight, I kept up Stoneskin so he couldn't gain TP, DoTed him down with Bio, meleed a bit (but not enough so he could WS me), and then nuked his final 30% HP till he died. This strategy worked great every time we fought 1v1.
My strategy for the BLU varied a bit, but generally I'd start with Diaga > Silence (although he would tend to put up more Shadows or Head Butt when I tried to Silence, but eventually it would land). Once he was Silenced, the fight was basically over, and I'd smack him around till he died. One time, he tried to run for it when he got re-Silenced at 40% HP, but I Gravitied him and /sprint-ed over to Vorpal him to death. Other times I'd use Head Butt to interrupt his Big 3, then Silence while he was stunned, and proceed to kill from there. He'd give me some trouble by trying to Stun-lock me, but never actually killed me. At some points I'd just face away and heal myself, letting his spells feed me TP, then turn and Vorpal him for the kill.
However, in the 2-on-1 matches I didn't win. I'd try to Diaga > Silence the BLU (since he's clearly the bigger threat of the two, since the PLD starts with no TP), but the PLD would /sprint up and Shield Bash me to interrupt my Silence and Stun me, giving the BLU time to Disseverment away my Stoneskin and start to Stunlock me with Head Butt while the PLD meleed me for TP and to interrupt my spells. Needless to say, this did not go well for me, and I died multiple times. So my question is this:
What would you do (as a RDM/BLU) to defeat this strategy, or would you just say that a 2-on-1 when one of the 2 is a BLU is just an unfair matchup? Thanks.
