Things have been said but i'll just boil it down to what i find most crucial about the match. The most basic thing cant be stressed enough, don't rush, don't act unless there is purpose - Especially moving, its always an advantage to react to situations rather then creating them. Dont give in to your opponents flow, always consider all your options and dont feel compelled to take up the action where it was left off. Waiting is also a way to identify blocks. Take a stock when a round approaches its ending and you still feel like taking that risky action - If you are in a good spot, dealt some damage or stood your ground on the vp, stay were you are and end the round. Play reserved, especially when the other guy does. This game is cards vs. other cards. Preventing your opponent from making good use of his hand is a win in itself. No damage is best, but when it comes down to it, you should indeed distribute damage intentionally. Make use of the bottlenecks the map offers you and the zone of control each character has on the board. Be aware what happens to the team if you move a character. He might have been shielding them. Bluff! Bait! Mindgames! (Smack talk!) Stay away from cards that will numb your mind and mislead you (insight).
