Well done mod. Keep up the good work and one day you'll get it with 6 picks too eventually!

Does the amount of starting picks affect rating?

@Mythos No it doesn't.

@Farah is it a secret strategy? Does it have something to do with https://www.warzone.com/Forum/380872-new-way-win-game-3v3-ladder ?

Thank you everyone! Also big shoutout for fizzer giving me all the best picks when needed. Surely there will be new challenges in the future

I have to admit that I felt kinda "offended" at first about it being possible that someone scores so high despite handicapping himself to 3 picks.

Looking over a couple of those games, as expected I saw pretty strong play and some luck. However, as a third factor it seemed to me that also some opponents handicapped themselves.

With some opponents it was not easy to spot and I might accidentally insult them if they played serious:
- https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer?GameID=22769032 (iarwin opened 3 bonuses simultaneously)
- ...

But then Octane tripple picking the Scandinavian Peninsula seemed just too bizarre (https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer?GameID=22746768).

Luck plays a big part for sure, but in defense of ianwin and octane:

Ianwin: he basically had to be confused where to find me. He was all over the map and had still no intel. The expansion in west russia was overkill, but the only thing that could save him was countering greenland harder.

Octane: if octane gets first pick and misses one or both of west russia/europe, he wins so his strategy was definitely viable, even though we can agree it wasn't his most thought trough game

@Norman picking against a highly skilled player who will only make 3 picks presents some strategic difficulties. If you steal a pick they can be literally anywhere on the board and they have an intel advantage. If you don't steal a pick than you just gave them 3 picks they thought they could win from.

Perhaps Octane's picks were some weird strategy to deal with this conundrum. From my own game with Ianwin, I think that's just how he plays.

but with those 3 picks mod can never go for the best bonuses on the board, since it is likely that the opponent picks the best bonuses too and he ends up with fizzer picks. so in any case, mod will be worse off picks, at least in theory
practically speaking, most people just don't see the best bonuses
