Explain to me how stall is anymore "brainless" than offence.
(I suck at quoting)
Because stall is usually able to beat any offensive teams that lack any serious firepower or goal simply by playing turn by turn and not making any dynamic predictions. When stall teams are up against another stall team, then they are usually forced to carry out a plan against it [such as getting up hazards fast, pressuring the opposing spinner etc and if they're up against an HO team then stall usually usually has to make a few double switches and predictions and try to limit opportunities for the opponent to set up or cause lots of damage.
