Strategy 009: Generalized Quarry Theory

—Written by Zirk

Note: All quarry testing was done with standard Hako match settings.  The settings can be viewed at the start of almost every video.  I would like to mention that if you ever do your own quarry testing, try to record it and record the entire match from start to finish, as I have done.  It’s possible that we may want to look into other factors like the number of kills a player has, which team got the first kill of the match, etc.  So, by including this in your videos, we can use old videos to add to the data pool.

There is a lot of speculation here, so if you have unanswered questions/comments, note them down as you read, and if they remain unanswered by the end, post them in the comments for discussion.

(3) Your 2-hour is not up.
