Well, most of the time fury seems to be a waste of pillz...
It can be quite useful in many situations:
You have a character with +X life per damage. Using fury means doing at least 4 damages and sometime even more (Kenny with +2 lifes per damage mean you'll get 6 more damages!).
If you apply lesson #2 "thinking in less than 4 rounds", fury is a good and quite unexpected way to reach your KO
Dont use fury at all if you really needs to win most of the forthcoming rounds. You better save thoses 3 pillz to get an attack advantage.
@ Alxh..yup..you can fury when faced with a reducer..that is a good thing to do if you're ahead and if your opponent's attack will be less than yours by looking at his/her remaining pillz..but if not..keep in mind that most experienced players tend to know that you can kill them with that tactic..and most of them will play things safe and will put pillz counting your maximum attack by looking at your remaining pillz considering fury..so it's still risky..because some people actually use their blockers to attack..and when you lose that round..your opponent will most likely win instead of you..so my suggestion for all would be..play things safe..and use fury only when it will make a big difference..remember..you don't have to KO an opponent to win..a win is still a win..you don't always have to aim for a KO..specially in ELO..and..saving pillz for later use is a better tactic than using fury on a card when you're not sure that it will hit..
DEFinetly on zatman if your oppeonent puts out a card you know they wont put pills on, e.g. noon stevens, its also a good idea to put pills on cards like kolos, it will really scare the opponent
Have you ever tried of using Kolos(R)...It really tops up on advantage...using Kinjo(U) is definitely using a lot on effort because it uses the bonus required.....but in Kolos(R), it doesn't really need to use any of its clan members to deliver a full blow on the opponent..."one card makes all the difference"
And surely...PanzerElement's suggestion is a great one...how could your opponent fight if it's focus is on killing Kinjo (U), or Lost Hog (U), or Lao Cr (CR) that it loses focus on the other remaining cards in hand...that really makes a difference...
Personally i consider fury when i am facing either tough or slow players.
this move is a tough decision. therefore, it is very important to think it through first.
it is also important to remember that fury will work better when combined with bluff and good estimation.
do the unexpected and lead your opponents to believe that you arent going to risk doing this. this way you can caught them off-guarded (with their defense down) which would serve as a great advantage for you. it is also important to distract your opponent. good example of distraction is the Fang Pi Clang example above.
if you are really undecided if you want to fury it or not.. just remember this.. "NO GUTS, NO GLORY"
of course you should also consider your chances of winning first before actually doing it!
If ur opponent hasnt got a card that reduces damge or SOA then use fury with kolos
