There are 2 schools of thought here...

...or the opposite of that. I've seen it work both ways. It really does depend on what you're guys are good at. My team was better at the aggressive breakouts, we could get outside on less aggressive teams and smash them. If we tried to play conservative we lost. In three man you don't have the bodies to try and do it both ways, you're either going to be conservative and grind your games out, or you're going to be aggressive and smash other teams down.
Basically you want to get an idea what you can and can't do by looking at the layout online or taking suggestions here, then flesh out those ideas when you finally get a chance to walk the fields and actually see the setup before the event. A lot of teams can come up with a "winning strategy" on paper, but once you see how the field is actually laid out, your plan might be shot in the ***, or you might see something even better.
The break will always be crucial, you've got to set your breaks(several of them) when you walk the field and then you absolutely have to execute them if you expect to perform. You might draw up the best play for that field, but if you guys are afraid to go 100% and execute it won't amount to a damn thing.
