When you first start playing Warlords, choose games with slow ball speed (fireball). This will help you get the feel of the game faster. Also, there are certain positions in which the ball always comes off your shield at the same angle, or in the same direction. Learn these positions and use them to your advantage against your opponents.

Don't be too predictable. If you attempt to shoot from the same angle or from the same position too often, your opponents will know what to expect and will nearly always be able to block your shots. Vary your attacks to keep the others off guard.

Study your opponents' weaknesses. You can learn a lot by studying the habits of the enemy. You may find, for example, that one of your opponent moves very well in one direction when attempting to block shots, but has trouble moving in the opposite direction. Obviously then, you want to concentrate on the direction he or she has trouble moving to.

Team Competition: You will find that 4-player games are terrific because the action is fierce and extremely competitive. You may even want to create teams and battle for the best cumulative score.
