    When I first got Strikers about 1 in 4 people I played were cheap. Now about 3 out of 4 rely on exploiting the game's "glitches" to win. Myself, I could never have fun playing if I relied on Toad, Boo, or Dry Bones to trick the goalie, or chip passes to one-timer goals. This is the equivelent of trapping someone in the corner with Chung Li and using her super fast kick. You can win every time, but you just don't do it.

    Anyway, how do you stop these moves, especially when someone chip passes/charges the ball and then does a one timer?

    Those aren't glitches, those are the moves they were designed to have.

    Timing is the main key to countering them. And practice.

    Ya I know those arn't glitches but they are very cheap moves. An example is I just played someone 5 minutes ago that had 46 wins and 4 loses. They weren't that good at stopping mega strikers or using items and average at everything ese. However, they constantly use dry-bones' goalie trick to beat me 12 to 6 then 7 to 4. Less than 1 in 11 people can beat them, not because they are good.

    Anyway I'm just finding the game is not worth playing online against strangers anymore.

    i agree with miiplaywii. it requires so much more skill to get a proper goal (buy shooting and passing and lobbing ect) than just to do the same thing to get all your goals, its ridiculous. and if YOU start using those spam moves because every1 else does then you are an ultimate noob. its so much more satisfiying beating an opponent with pure skill :)

    ive noticed that too, that they suck, but they just use a certain players move over and over. what you should do is get your timing down. like if they are going to spam boo, stand right in front of the goal(goalie line) and as soon as they come, slide tackle. same thing with drybones most of the time. hammer is easy, just practice. i do that, this once i get the ball, i'll do the same thing but score. then after 3 times of doing this they disconnect :lol: losers

    Why don't you start being "cheap" as well. It's not being cheap anyways, it's just knowing how to score goals, and you have to know how to defend them. Just time your slide tackles, and never hit.

    The thing I hate is when Dry Bones/Boo/Waluigi does that disappearing thing into the goal.

    Thats the only thing I hate to, the rest I could care less if they do it. It's part of the game and most aren't that hard to stop.

    its easy to stop them, especially boo, because he can only do that directly in front of the goal. if you stand on the goal line (which is where the player should press the button to get the score) if you either hard hit/slide tackle. move stopped.

    same with bones and walugi, practice your timing homie.

    Thanks for the advice. But I'm still having trouble with the lob passes. Is it possible to have good enough timing to steel the ball in between passes?


    My Team:
    Wario
    Toad
    Dry-Bones
    Birdo

    BTW I do quite well without any cheap moves :cool:

    stealing lobs require alot of practice and ive found that speedy characters not nessecarily defensive players are better for lob stealing. slow characters suck at lob intercepts even if they are defensive.
    my team has
    2boos
    HB
    Wario or Luigi
    i use this team to steal lobs like crazy and score before the opponent has time to notice. good passers help get the ball down quick so it cant be stolen again. i hardly ever use boo dekes i prefer to do chips instead

    you see, this is where voice chat would be effective.

    somebody's about to do his cheap move, and you scare the s### out of that 7-year old by yelling anything of your choice, especially his name if he's dumb enough to put it. he'll crap his pants, then you can steal the ball and pown.

    i use boo to slide an easy point and i use dry bones to teleport in, those are GREAT ways to get a point. they arent cheap, the game was designed with those moves, to be used for that reason. if you cant beat them because of it maybe strikers isnt the game for you..

    I agree wholeheartedly, although I absolutely don't think that Strikers isn't the game for them. Boo can teleport in goals, because he's an awful, awful, awful shooter. He's an abysmal shooter. He couldn't shoot his way out of a paper bag.
    It's easy to get frustrated and start screaming "cheater!" when someone is effectively using Boo against you, but putting the brakes on the little ghost is really pretty easy. A strong hitter, like Monty Mole or Birdo can close the gap with Boo surprisingly fast with a quick hit. Or if you have a faster player in your control and Boo gets possesion and begins moving toward your goalie, instead of chasing him (he's one of the faster sidekicks) try heading for the goal -behind- Kritter and stopping him there.
    Bones is a bit different because he's a decent shooter, and can teleport in without having to risk coming in contact with Kritter. Keep an eye on your opponent's Dry Bones, and the color of the ball. When Dry Bones is in a good position, relatively uncovered and the ball is yellow or higher, he's likely going to try and get the ball to him. The best way to cut him off is to actually cut him off, intercept balls coming into him, or take one for the team and foul him before he gets his hands on the ball.
    Remember that it takes time and practice practice practice to become effective with Boo or Dry Bones, so instead of hating them, strive to improve your own defense.
