Difference between strategy and tactics

  • Hello,
    maybe someone can briefly explain to me the difference between strategy and tactics?
    Isn't a strategic game automatically also tactical?

  • To put it roughly, strategy is more of a global framework, that is, "long-term", cross-game planning. Tactics, on the other hand, require short-term, situation-dependent action.

    Most "optimization games" are therefore more strategic. Fighting games are mostly tactical.

  • @: Martina:
    Frank put it very well. The two terms are of course not one hundred percent clear. Therefore I would underline your statement.
    Strategic games are usually always tactical. The reverse does not work, however, because tactical games are not necessarily strategic.

  • Hello,
    thanks, i think i got it.

    Settlers of Catan Card Game would therefore be more strategic, Mühle more tactical.
    Correct?

  • Tactics: art of arrangement, formation of an army

    Strategy is a long-term, planned striving for a goal, taking into account the means and resources available.

    Good examples here are the games Stratego and Risk. Tactics equals line-up. Strategy: what is the best way to get to my goal.


    Better example of football. Tactics: 4 defenders, 4 midfielders, 2 forwards.
    The strategy: attacking over the wings, covering the area, man marking.

  • Getting to know someone and then approaching the person to win their heart is strategy. What then happens in bed is tactic. ;)

  • Short and sweet:

    Strategy: plan
    Tactics: act and react

  • It's not that easy to define. Both terms are interwoven and there are tons of definitions for them.

    In economics, the following is defined, among other things:
    Strategy -> What should be achieved?
    Tactics -> How should it be achieved?

    Or after Carl von Clausewitz:
    Tactics is the study of the use of armed forces in combat.
    Strategy is the study of the use of individual combat for the purpose of war.

  • Roughly speaking, in an argument you need tactics if you want to avoid it, strategy ;-)

    My "simple" definition is still correct!
    Strategy -> What should be achieved? -> planning!
    Tactics -> How should it be achieved? -> act / react!

    :-P
