sry, i have to disagree. Tournament is sooo packed - I doubt there's any strategy possible there. You cannot make enemies think that your attacks are fakes - when they might be defending a fake from another of the thousand+ active player.
Join a local server, wit 4 other metas and you'll know what's fun. You don't have to go to your local servers, you can go to someone else's local server - or better yet, come to international .com servers. Start a cross-domain forum post and prepare enemies. Honestly, if no finals - all the teams will return to .com domains. We had mightyRU, huns team - and so many other fun teams. Now it's us few metas fighting off in com1 server every year.
No strategy on finals?
Yeah, because coordinating 10x more people than on 1x server doesn't require any planning or strategy involved.
Better yet, there is where team effort counts most as you really can't do a lot solo, not nearly as close as you can on 1x servers.
You don't really have a clue until you experience it first hand, or better yet get a role to coordinate something.
Still, it's largely a thing of personal prefference. Both can be fun or a complete disaster.
