Attack Types

Jump to: navigation, search

The spectrum of attacks is very broad. Different attacks often have overlapping aspects while at the same time are totally different in others. It is therefore a tedious work to list them all. To seperate them nevertheless an attack is usually divided into basic schemes that are used over and over again. Although one scheme alone is not very powerful, they can be combined to create a perfect attack that will smash the world into pieces and make you the ruler of the world *harharhar*. Some of these are presented here. There are a lot more techniques used that are not presented here.
