    The Art of War [WIP] Will require opinions on if you want me to do this.

    Post by TehInfamousAmos on Mon Jan 07, 2013 8:41 am

    Okay, recently I have been re-reading Sun-Tzu's 'The Art of War' I realized how relevant this book is to PvP in any game, especially this game and League of Legends. I will go through 1 Chapter each week and write a review of it and how much it applies to this game, I also am planning on doing one for the League of Legends community but that doesn't matter xD Anyway, I want to see if any of you guys would actually like me to do this or whether it would be irrelevant?

    I think most of the applications that The Art of War has on games is more easily learned by playing the game than it is by reading the book. Comparing a strategy you know to a passage is easy and kind of cool. Example: "The difficulty of tactical maneuvering consists in turning the devious into the direct, and misfortune into gain." Oh, yeah, this is like how sometimes I let people hit me with a stunlock so I can swap and parry them. Or how I run forward and parry over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and counterstab them when they try to punish me for it.

    But learning a strategy from a passage? Who is going to read something like, "Hence that general is skillful in attack whose opponent does not know what to defend; and he is skillful in defense whose opponent does not know what to attack." and get anything meaningful from it? Like I said in the other thread, reading The Art of War will not make you a good player, playing will make you a good player. In order to apply the things you read in Art of War, you need to understand the specifics of the game you are applying it to. If you understand those specifics, you can determine optimal strategies without reading Art of War.

    That being said, it can give you a new perspective, and it's a fun read. I recommend it, and it's free on the internet! But it's not going to suddenly make you a PvP strategy genius.
