The problem with Blitz is it sucks until you get to the Tiger call-in. And thats 8 points.
What do you get before that?
Well at 2 points you get storms for 400mp, not cheap but they can be good. Not much staying power though, they require alot of attention.
At 5 points you get the StuH which is nothing to write home about. Even so its better to pay the extra 300mp for it because its probably worth it.
Thats all you get for the whole early and middle game. You have to survive with that for another 3 points.
Think about what the other Doctrines get during that time.
Blitz seems to be so weak in 1v1s, it only pays off at the last possible moment and at that time the allies will surely have the upper hand with AT guns, stickies, upgunned Shermans maybe.
My question is what are you supposed to do until you get the tigers?
Has anyone been able to use the right side of the tree to good effect in 1v1s?
Sometimes it is hard to even get 8 points at all.
I really want to get a good Blitz strategy going but so far I haven't found it. Do any top players use blitz 1v1?
