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

- It's highly unlikely that we test a new version of some tactic that already has been tested if we find that the changes between the versions are too small to make any meaningful difference.

- It's highly unlikely that we test a tactic that is very similar to one that already has been tested.

- if your tactic is a tweak of someone's tactic then state it in the description, reflect it in the tactic name and explain what tweaks you made otherwise we won't test it.

Please, notice that there some reasonable limits on how many tactics one person can offer for the testing. 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.
