Strategists, as I finally found some spare time the last days I was able to overhaul my magic ladder game analysis tool which is packed with a bunch of features that might help you improving your strategic gameplay on the modified medium earth map.
Forecasting your enemy's strength and predicting his positions, income, card pieces and next attacks undoubtedly is the key to success in this game. However, keeping together all those pieces of information - especially over several turns - can be a pain without organized note taking and structured analysis.
LadderBud will boost your analytic capabilities as it allows you to store all relevant aspects of the typical ladder game for each turn, branching into multiple variants and contemplating possible enemy reactions. I wrote that program back in April 2019. Since uncompromisingly entering all available information into LadderBud, my gameplay improved significantly and catapulted me to a +2300 ranking, grabbing the golden trophy within 2 months.
As game reviews are a precious source for learning the basics of Warzone strategy, I just started another thread to present a fully analyzed ladder game with LadderBud (check out the ladder forum). Maybe this thread will grow with more contributions in future.
If you want to give LadderBud a try, visithttp://www.ladderbud.de
I didn't rent a webserver to host the website, but installed a RaspberryPi in my cellar, so bring some patience or come back later in case the website doesn't response in time.
Maybe I am going to implement some additional features, including more maps, maybe testing AI supported analysis, but as you all know there are just 24h a day. Let me know what you think!
