Information regarding the way we pick tactics for the testing.

by Alexander, Nov 12, 2020


First of all, I want say that we don't promise to test every tactic posted so don't expect that.

There are many factors influencing our decision on whether or not to test a tactic. Here are some of the factors:

- the better presentation of your tactic, the more likely it gets tested so don't be lazy, add some results with your tactic and any additional useful information about it. The more reasons you provide why your tactic should be tested, the higher chances it gets tested.

- when you add a new version of your tactic then write about the changes you made.

- it's unlikely that we test a new version of your tactic if we find that the changes are too insignificant to make any meaningful difference.

- it's unlikely that we test your tactic if we find it's very similar to what that has been tested already.

- if your tactic is a tweak of some other tactic then state it in the description and explain what the difference between your tweak and the tactic you tweaked otherwise it won't get tested.

Please, notice that there's a reasonable limit on how many tested tactics one person can have. At the moment the limit is about 10 tested tactics for one person so if you're above the limit then your further tactics has a low chance to get tested but it's still possible they get tested depends on different factors.

We don't want to encourage tacticians to do "brute-force cracking" of the match engine by spamming tactics without putting any intelligent thoughts behind them and we don't want to encourage tacticians to produce tactics that bring nothing new to the table. We'd like to see people do an analysis of what has been tested already before offering their tactics for the testing but of course, if we see that some tactic gets very positive feedback from the community then we'll test that tactic no matter what.
