Tips and Vids on Sacred Fire Temple

(Posted by Eliatan of the DolyGames Team)

Hey you guys, one of the more recent additions to Wartune that I've really enjoyed is Sacred Fire Temple. I've done a few gameplay videos on it already, and I thought I'd mention some tips I've picked up since it was released!
  • Assess your individual and team chance of success - check out the rankings to see what you're up against. If there are a ton of players on the other team with much higher BR than yours, it may be better to leave and wait the five minutes to enter a new one. If you only care about the team win, and there are a lot of top players on your team, stick around! 
  • Consider going into the battle late - many top players who aren't as worried about the BRs of other people will go into the battleground minutes before the gates open. If you wait for a few minutes or even as long as until the last 9-10 minutes of the battle period, the field of players tends to be weaker. Even if there are one or two very strong toons, it won't be as tough to avoid them.
  • Be prepared to grab the fires - the sacred fires give a reward bonus and are good to try for as long as you don't mind having a big fiery target over your head. There are three fires that spawn approximately 5, 10, and 15 minutes into the battle. Each of them spawns in the same place every time, and the order is labeled below.
  • Know when to be a chicken - unless you're thoroughly overpowered, you should know figure out who to avoid and when they're coming toward the tower you're at, run for the hills :P ^^ Even though I don't have a ton of people that can take me out, if I have a fire, I'll think twice about staying at a tower that someone very strong is approaching.
  • Have some fun and be social - Wartune is just as much or more of a social game as it is a competitive one. Battleground and Sacred Fire Temple can be a nice time to get a feel for what's going on in your cross server community. Ignore the haters or people just trying to troll around negativity, and you can make some friends :)

Well, that's all I've got. Please share any thoughts or additional advice in the comments!
