Is there any strategy to FFA Ranked? or is it all luck? I think it's 80% timing and aggression and 20% luck. (That 20% luck for me is actually getting a match!) Anyway I was wanting to know some of your FFA Ranked Strats. Mine is get an early lead with a lvl 1, then try to maintain it by going for higher levels.
Earlier today I used this strategy to minimize the kills of a Nariko lvl 3. I smacked a potential victim in Kratos up and away from the Nariko, then I ran away myself and she didn't get either of us. Not only did I prevent 2 kills but I also build some meter too!
Go for the weakest one, simple as that. Then use your meter to take out the biggest threat. If you have a lvl3 sometimes saving it till the end can win you some matches because others will fight less or run away which decreases their potential kill gain.
Never find yourself in the middle of the fray, try to stay outside as much as possible so you don't get double teamed or sucked into a super. If there are hit and run characters, go after them and make sure they don't earn enough AP to get their level 3.
