If there is snake corner, you're shot. You know this game well if you play NCPA, you're going to probably trade out with your opponent. This doesn't work.
What does work for snake play;
-a coach to tell you exactly where to shoot.
-using the whole beam to find shots
-having a corner behind you to keep opponents corner player suppressed and keep their snake player from bunkering you. then you have free range and they can't touch you.
-Once you shot out a guy or two cross-field, or their corner is gone, run the other snake guy down-even if you trade then you're probably still up on guys and it'll benefit your team. Once again, it's something your coach should decide based on looking at what's going down on the WHOLE field, not just the snake. What's best for the team to win. So just listen to your coach, and if your coach sucks, get a new one.
