THREE BATTLES with PIT OGRE: My Splinterlands Journey #17

in #spt8 months ago

Although I have not built-up a strong Fire Team, whenever I call them to battle I often use the Rare Fire Monster PIT OGRE!

In the battles below, he is at Level 4 with two abilites- Stun and Enrage

General strategy

I have used Pit Ogre in all Manas, from a low 13 mana battles to average mana battles of 20s & 30s, as well as high 99 Mana battles. I've included three battles below to show that.

1. In all three batles, Pit Ogre is in the first position. However, I have used him at the second position as the immediate replacement Tank, in the middle back position, as well as at the last position of battle lineups. It is my experience that Pit Ogre is most effective as a Tank or as an immediate tank replacement such as when Furious Chicken or Gelatinous Cube or any similar strategy is being utilized in a battle.

2. A Special Note: Pit Ogre has Melee attack and his abilities, even at the maximum level, do not empower him to attack from the back positions. So unless the Ruleset is or includes Melee Meyham or Super Sneak, Pit Ogre is powerless in the back. His Stun ability is usable only when he attacks. At Level 4, he does have the ability to increase it's Melee attack if he gets damaged (Enrage), but in so far as being able to hit any target from the back position, he is powerless.

3. For Pit Ogre's longevity in battle and when there is sufficient Mana available, I always include in the line up the RARE Fire Monster Beetle Queen, which at Level 5 has the Heal ability.

4. A good winning strategy for any battle is to have in the second position a strong replacement tank, and one that has the ability to attack from the second position. In battles 2 & 3, I used Manticore. In battle 1, I used the Imp Bowman (crossing my fingers that my team wins the battle without losing Pit Ogre!). Some may say that I should have used a low mana Monster with either a Melee attack or a Magic attack. It wasn't like I did not think of using Kobold Miner or Cocatrice. I chose the Imp Bowman in battle 1 for both his power 2 attack his fast 4 speed.

Did my strategy work?

Of course it did 💪... the proof is in the win, 😜 LOL!

Not one... not two... BUT THREE example battles!?!
Girl, you go above and beyond.
And you are literally the FIRST post for this challenge that LIKES the Pit Ogre. 🤣 It's not that people don't like him... more that they find other monsters generally better suited.
I've noticed folks using him in 2nd position, almost like a squishy in case of blast... even without reach he does well as a back.
BUT you! You put him right up front! And win!
Love your posts!

Thanks, @drotto.

Great job @silversaver888. I particularly like your 3rd battle as its more of a competitive match. I see the other 2 battle shave much lower monsters.

Your 3rd battle is pretty much perfect for monster selection and positioning. Glad you started putting your Manticore in the second place. Lol 😉

I learned from the master dude himself, LOL😉, but only after drilling it onto my head! I knew that if you came to this article and saw Manticore in the second position, that you'd like that, hehehe.
Yeah.. battles 1 and 2 is just to show that he is usable for different manas. I don't use the Fireteam as often. We don't have a choice of opponents, and just as my cards are almost always lower levels in battles, there are times that my opponents have lower cards. Sometimes, I get lucky!
Thanks for your battle tips and encouragement, @welshstacker! Take care 🥰🌺🤙
