The negative strategy

Recommended Posts

So I'm on my third year doing policy and I'm looking to improve my game. I win consistently on aff but really suck at neg. I often struggle to win even one negative round at local tournaments. What can I do to improve my game? I've stopped running things from open-ev, I've begun cutting my own cases and learning about how to break up speeches. Thanks in advance.

The problem is I don't really have one. I run the most applicable off case and then run on case with the remaining time.

ok, so you should try to figure what you like the most

also consider doing more than 1off

i normally do up to 6, depending on how long the cards are, and how good my opponents are

3 or 4 is a much better starting point

do like a cp, da, and something else if you prefer policy

if you prefer Ks you can get away with just that if you find a good generic one, but i would also throw in like T or something

I normally go 4-5 off and case but i don't think I'm using the block effectively.
