BATTLE TACTIC #1: GATE CARD PLACEMENT – JANUARY 2010

Note: We republish these on BakuganTactics.com

Welcome to the first issue of Battle Tactics with BrightLight!

I’m very excited to bring you this new article which will be published monthly, highlighting battle strategies for you to hone your brawling skills and become a top brawler. And with Baku-Con just around the corner, there’s no better time than now to develop your brawling tactics!

Let’s get this brawl started with my first strategy tip!

Gate Card Placement: Conditional

The order in which you play your Gate cards is almost as important as which cards you choose to play with. Gate cards are unusual as they don’t necessarily do anything outside of a battle. It’s not until they are actually used in a brawl that you will see their full affect. So, you have to strategically think ahead when playing Gate cards.

Using a card more than once is a great battle tactic! Take for example, the Gate card ‘Flybeetle Rescue’ which allows you to put a used Red Ability card into your unused pile. When using this Gate card you need to make sure that by the time a battle begins on the card that you have a Red Ability card in your used pile. If you are using a Red Ability card with a generic use like ‘Try Again’, which allows you to re-roll any Pyrus, Haos, or Subterra Bakugan, then don’t play ‘Flybeetle Rescue’ until you have already used ‘Try Again’. However, if you are using a Red Ability card like ‘Flames of Light’ then you can play ‘Flybeetle Rescue’ first. Then, use the ‘Flames of Light’ to add a Bakugan to the Gate card when your opponent lands on it.

Using Gate cards and Ability cards in a strategic order is critical to claiming ultimate victory on the battlefield and is one of the most basic but necessary tactics to keep in mind.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my first tip and I can’t wait to share more battle tactics with you each month. If you have a strategy that you would like to share with me for a future article, send your tip to community@bakugan.com with the following subject line – “Battle Tactics with Bright Light: My Strategy Tip”!

Hidden feature on Bakugan Gate Cards!

Your read it here first, friends.

You probably didn’t notice, but nearly all of the Gate Cards (Except the D and E series) has a hidden feature that has yet to be revealed.  We are going to call it the “Dark Attribute”.

If you look at an Earthen Mound Gate Card, you will see the Highlighted Attribute.  It looks like a yellow sunburst.  In this case, it is Darkus.

Now, look at the other attributes,  They *SHOULD* have a white ring around them.  But some of the have a DARK ring.  Do you see it?  If you don’t look at the Subterra Bonus.

What’s it for?

Well, we know that several cards give G-Power boosts for highlighted attributes.  I’ll bet that more cards are coming to make use of the “Dark Attribute”!

 

Stay tuned!

The Highlighted Attribute Explained!

In a previous post, we found out that Series 2 Gate Cards have a highlighted Attribute there is a small corona around it.

Here is the first card we’ve seen that uses it: It is from the Bakuswap (Series 2d) set:

The card text says the following:

“Play during a battle where you have a Pyrus Bakugan. If the Gate Card has a Highlighted Pyrus Bonus, your Bakugan gets a G-Power bonus based on its Attribute.”

So we will be looking through our Gate Cards to find more! Hey! High Energy (Series 2, 6/48) has a highlighted Pyrus Attribute!
