runner tactics

Yellow is always the aggressor, i.e. the one talked about in the text.
Blue is always the opponent's runner (since he is passive, we call him „catcher“).
Whether the catcher was a committed fighter from the left flank (designations always from the line's point of view) or whether it was a flank fighter or the opposite side's runner is irrelevant.

Symbolic: technique 1 "Out of Sight"

Push the opponent's runner further and further back by going sideways, thus going out of sight of the line. In part, this is enough to make the old flank nervous. But it can also be preparation to send another runner through the gap created or to fold in the flankers. Moreover, if you execute the movement as in the picture, it will leave the direct line of sight. This already leads to uncertainty, since an aggressor is outside the line's field of vision. Of course, if the other runner should be defeated, the other line can be attacked from behind.

This is the standard preparation maneuver for the more advanced variants : „Jump in the back“, „Flank pincer“, „Deflect the flank“.
Just as the loud make of course can be further executed with two round ends.

Symbolic representation: technique 2 "Making the Loud"

Take the opportunity behind the enemy's line, and make as much noise as possible, distracting the line as it now knows an enemy at its back. It is also possible to push the runner into the back of his own line.

Symbolic representation: technique 3 "Short and long"

Two runners go around on the same side. One short (this one is usually intercepted) and the second long. The latter can either tie up the reserves or attack directly again on the opposite side.

or „Leave the catcher standing“ Symbolic: technique 4 "Jump into the back"

Push the runner back far enough that there is enough time to leave the runner behind to jump into the back of the enemy line. Either do this as a run past the line or, in the dramatic case, this can be done through that line when it is time to move back to safety. However, the latter can also result in one's fellow combatants killing one, so call password. When running past the line, be sure to make clean slashes and cuts. It is also useful here not to take out every one, but specifically every other one, as this keeps the order of your own line.

Symbolic representation: technique 5 "Flank Pincer"

The movement sequence is the same as in the „out of sight“ maneuver, except that on the return the flank is approached slightly offset. This also forces this position on you, but you are prepared for it and usually achieve success this way.

Symbolic: technique 6 "Stripping the catcher" Run close to an obstacle (such as another chaser or another runner), hindering those who are chasing you. If the obstacle belongs to the other party, it should be just too blind or too busy not to catch you. (Giving one to the obstacle is not forbidden).

Symbolic representation: technique 7 "Deflect the flank"

Similar to the short and long running end, here the first running end deflects the opponent's cover. This time, however, it is parallel to the line so that the second gets a short path through the line. This is a technique that works well on opposing single fighters.

Symbolic: technique 8 "Stabbing the runner in the back"

When pulling out against a stronger runner, the runner can be turned in such a way that he gets his own line in the back. If this is the case, another fighter (even a spear) can finish him off from behind. It is practically the counter maneuver to „out of sight“. It is important to take care that the stronger runner does not break out into the maneuver „flank pincer“ or the maneuver „jump in the back“. The combatants countersigned with „x“ must pay attention to this.

Symbolic representation: technique 9 "Following the runner in the blind spot"

As a runner catcher, don't run into the opponent's runner, but follow him. Preferably in such a way that you stay behind him and out of his field of vision. If the pursued slows down (e.g. to attack) catch up with him and finish him off from behind.
