Gun Street Girl
(All GF's take place on Gun Street)
Day 2423 of the New World
July 9, 2014
Two days ago, I urged eUSA to spend (some might say "waste") your fighting time doing Guerrilla fights (GF) instead of clicking the red FIGHT button. My reasoning was laid out in this article: Hey eUSA, Time To Do The Guerrilla.
I had plenty of feedback from people who complained about how tedious GF is. Yes. GF is tedious.
However, I want to present some statistics which I hope can convince some more of you to dive in this week. The more eUSA Citizens we have Guerrilla fighting, the more Gold we will earn as a Nation and the more prizes our Citizens will walk away with during the current competition.
One complaint I heard was that GF ruins your chance of scoring a Battle Hero Medal.
You may have also noticed by examining that leaderboard that I had far fewer kills than those beneath me. That is the crux of my argument, after all, that GF produces a vastly superior damage/energy ratio, and since this week's contest asks us to focus entirely on Damage dealt, GF is the way to go.
If that one single screenshot does not convince you, here are two more that should do the trick:
Here is where I currently stand in the National Damage rankings:
And here is where I currently stand in the National Kills rankings:
Why is this significant?
Because 670 kills so far this week means that I have not consumed any Energy Bars while accumulating the damage I have done.
My damage per kill is 524,563.
Compare that with the top three on those leaderboards:
Tsewell: 162,856 per kill.
Rhodesknight 231,362 per kill.
Zugai Kotsu (currently 7th with 2637 kills): 262,218 per kill.
cosimaStar (currently 5th with 576,119,825 damage): 73,400 per kill.
A higher damage/kill rate means that I am spending fewer resources in pursuit of the weekly prizes. It also means I am able to contribute to our National Goals at a more efficient (and perhaps higher) rate than I would otherwise do.
As of this writing I am at 500% of my personal goal. All without spending a single energy bar.
I already know that some of you don't like GF. Fine. I don't need to hear your reasons for the umpteenth time.
However, if you have been on the fence about it, I hope these numbers will convince you to give it a try.
Remember, it does not matter if you win or lose in GF, you will ALWAYS GAIN MORE DAMAGE THAT WAY than you can by fighting with Q7 weapons.
Lastly, I want to clear up a few other minor random details about GF.
1 - You will score more damage by inflicting more damage, so don't stop firing even if you are losing.
2 - You will be matched with someone of (more or less) equal GF experience when you enter a GF. There is a somewhat wide margin for what the means, but generally speaking you won't have to face someone with vastly more experience than you.
3 - You will not necessarily be matched against someone fighting in the same battle as you are. GF simply pairs you up against someone else who is waiting for an opponent at the same time you are. So if you want to fight against your friend in GF, simply attempt to enter at the same time and hope for the best.
And remember, you can review the basics of success in Guerrilla fighting by reading the DoE article written by EZC Guerrilla expert Code-Y.
