    Pro knight strategy:

    1. Switch to builder
    2. Build a huge tower
    3. Switch back to knight
    4. Wait
    5. When enemies come close, throw bombs at them

    Specially when you got a 2 block or so high ground if they slash you, don't block and run. just block and walk back a-bit just out of range and poke. Also some dicks will call you jab spammer for this but if you get in a good position or if he is jumping on you just wait until he fails to shield or he starts to charge slash and just jab. This works well agains rushing jab spammers.

    when you try to bomb a knight make them think that you are going to throw it behind them up but when you throw it just wait till it gets to about 15 and throw it up and and towards them so the bomb is right on top of them. They will almost ALWAYS shield forward or behind.

    Quite old I know but I had to reply because discovering this after so long was like a door opening in my mind, accompanied by a chorus of angels. When holding C to select the items you want to drop, don't mouse over and release C, actually click the item and it will drop the whole works. It's the little things.

    I never listened to tips, and I would like to say I am pretty damn good knight. Just practise, that's what I did. Watch how others play, and do it better then them. Its better to learn from experience rather then to what someone types up.

    I listened to tips, and I would like to say I am a average knight. Practice is the best way but sometimes you will case difficult situations. Say if you die to bombs a lot. Then get a tip from other players and practice as they tell you. If it works out well, then great. If it doesn't then try to use the tips in your practice.

    Charge slashes halfway, the cancel and repeat. Stay at a good distance away, enough to stay out of each other's slashes but...
    when he finally slashes, you wait for a second then slash at him. If you hit... great. If not.. quickly click their guy twice. you either jab them or preform a powerful double slash. :eek:

    WELL that's your way, but double slash is the best priority. Repeatly click after your slash hit your opponent.

    I thought it would be assumed that one always double slashes when possible.

  12. Rather then jumping into a pack of angry knights waiting to destroy that coloured cloth of yours, wait for a teammate to come. The chances of you surviving will improve a lot. :)

    A few tactics which I've employed:

    Up close and personal: Keep as close to your opponent as possible with your shield up. Let your opponent make the first attack, wait a few milliseconds, then react by jabbing. Watch for your opponent charging for slash, this is your best opportunity to exploit. If your opponent falls back too far, pull back quickly and reform your composure. Avoid allowing your opponent to fall back too far, as they will inevitably maneuver to perform a double slash attack.

    Dance of the ballet: This is a game of calculating approach distance and timing, keep mobile. Allow your opponent to enter optimum swing distance then shift back and allow him to perform his slash attack, then follow up with your own slash attack. Hopefully, if performed at the correct distance and time, his slash will fall short while allowing yours maximum impact.

    Bomb charge: While approaching your opponent (or group) charge your bomb (by pressing F) while keeping your shield up, then once you are within sufficiently close distance, lob the bomb (preferably behind your opponent as they are facing you). Allow only 1-2 seconds remaining on the bomb. Hopefully this should cause the bomb to detonate behind your opponent, preventing them from reacting to shield it, thus blasting them to smithereens. ;)

  17. First rule, don't die... allot....

    • Don't jab spam.
    • Work with other knights(preferably of your colour).
    • Don't rush at enemies.
    • Don't use tickets for no good reason.
    • Ask someone with some skill to show you how to bomb jump.
    • After the above, bomb jump as far as you can into the attackers base, and kill junk.
    Sorry, I'm too lazy to right a legitimate response.

    I'm probably a bit late to answer this but I know how and seen it... first get 3 bombs throw it but make seurno one gets it gather up to 12 and have 3 in your pocket. From the bring it where u need to use it and keep presing f and u will bomb spam!!! But u can only throw 15 but u can spam more by getting more bombs in a group :D To throw it quick just keep pressing f multiple times. Hope that helped~Foxstar

    If you throw a bomb straight up while just standing around, it will reach a height of four blocks.
    :castle_wall::castle_wall::blank::castle_wall::castle_wall::blank::castle_wall::castle_wall:
    :castle_wall::door::blank::castle_wall::door::blank::castle_wall::castle_wall:
    :castle_wall::castle_wall::blank::castle_wall::castle_wall::blank::castle_wall::dirt_bg:
    :castle_wall::door::blank::castle_wall::b_shop::blank::dirt_bg::dirt_bg:
    :castle_wall::castle_wall::blank::castle_wall::castle_wall::blank::castle_wall::dirt_bg:
    :castle_wall::castle_wall::blank::castle_wall::castle_wall::blank::castle_wall::castle_wall:
    :castle_wall::castle_wall::blank::castle_wall::castle_wall::blank::castle_wall::castle_wall:
    If you remove the enemy door, you can throw a bomb in the hole and damage their tower easily for sure. The enemys wont be able to get up again and your team can get an advantage very quickly.

    Also, speaking of bombs: Do a sword slash to throw the bomb faster and make it fly further. If you stand behind a team mate who has the enemys attention, you can hit his enemy easily with a good throw.
