        Sometimes the best Defense is good offense. Sometimes the best offense is a good Defense

          Always turtle. Drag it out as long as you can. Also make sure you pick techies so it's fun.

            The good fighters of old first put themselves beyond the possibility of defeat, and then waited for an opportunity of defeating the enemy.
            To secure ourselves against defeat lies in our own hands, but the opportunity of defeating the enemy is provided by the enemy himself.
            What the ancients called a clever fighter is one who not only wins, but excels in winning with ease.
            Hence his victories bring him neither reputation for wisdom nor credit for courage.
            He wins his battles by making no mistakes.
            Making no mistakes is what establishes the certainty of victory, for it means conquering an enemy that is already defeated.
            Hence the skillful fighter puts himself into a position which makes defeat impossible, and does not miss the moment for defeating the enemy.
            Thus it is that in war the victorious strategist only seeks battle after the victory has been won, whereas he who is destined to defeat first fights and afterwards looks for victory.

                        Basicly you only win if you destroy enemy ancient. On the other Hand this game is called " defence of the ancient ". Im confused.

                            It's been so long since I've been part of a base race game. Those are the matches I continue to play this game for.
                            I'd say generally, go for glory, destroy enemy ancient. Circumstances will always vary though, like pushing power of your team compared to enemy's, ability of your teammates to defend, without you, threat of the enemies TPing back and killing you, etc.

                              There's only two outcomes I dono how u guys can be so confused. If u destroy the enemy ancient you successful defended, vice versa.

                                This is deep.
                                If you defend ancient but don't destroy ancient, you don't win, nor do you lose.
                                Destroying their ancient implies you have appropriately defended your ancient, and destroyed theirs, so that's probably the preferable option.
                                But base races.
                                That's a different story.

                                  Is it better to defend your basket or score points?

                                    Without any context one cannot answer.

                                    Depends on heroes, stage of game.

                                      Always play-to-win and not not-to-lose.
