I politely disagree with your assessment for the part I have put in bold in the above quote.
The tips in the first post are meant to ease new players into the world of Outwitters, not give them rules of thumb which they will eventually realize are fallacious.

I deliberately made the tips very specific so I agree that they are different from the ones on the first page. Could you pls clarify what you disagree with, are you saying people will not learn when they can deviate from simple rules as they get better?

Players will learn and gather experience at their own pace. That is a process that can not be circumvented or significantly accelerated by tips. The primary purpose of this thread is to give new players a hand in their first steps. A thread was created which opened with the following:

I don't disagree with that. Everything in the list is something players will sooner or later realize for themselves. By listing the tips here, we can help them to get this common sense sooner rather than later.

Your formulations implied universal truth and kind of go the way of "this is how you should play, everything else is wrong". Like "never create a Heavy" - that's a fair assessment of the current role the Heavy plays, but it is not wrong to build one. Also, if I were a new player reading this, I'd ask myself "why shouldn't I create a Heavy?". Instead I listed "learn the role of each unit".
After reading through the list again (it's been a while since I looked at it) and comparing it to your tips, I have decided to adopt the medic-positioning tip, with a little more explanation.

Any information on Outwitters I present is founded on personal experience, public knowledge or the Outwitters Beta Test.
