There has been some call lately for more discussion of strategy or tactics within the MFZ community. Why don't we define those terms before we go any further.
Strategy: This is what happens before you reach the table. You decide on how many frames you're going to bring and what kind of loadout each will have. Also, if you're playing in a campaign, this is when the players determine what the next battle is going to involve.
Tactics: This is what happens when you get to the table. The choices you make during the setting up phase, during play, the results of the dice, and the bargains you make during the game are all tactics.
Okay, now we have working definitions.
Strategy you can talk about. The meta-game(1) is an important part of playing. The choices you and the other players make and how they interact will help shape the game. Tactics, on the other hand, you can't really talk about. How are we going to know the exact positions of everything on the table and how the dice are going to come up before they even happen?
So, what we're really looking to discuss is strategy.
1: Thank you, Richard Garfield for bringing this term into the general usage. No, not really.
