2v2 ladder picking: 1/8/2017 01:29:47

I would like to know how to pick on this template. There are so few wastelands for such a big map. Moreover, all bonuses have the same territory/income ratio. Therefore it seems hard to discern the best possible picks.
From top player games I can guess just one thing - bonuses with lesser than 3 value are pickwasting 90% of the time. Teams which picked them almost always lost against teams who didn't.
And that is all.
Also, I haven't seen anything on this particular subject, so I guess this thread can be helpful for more people.
All tips and ideas are welcomed.

I don't think that +2 bonuses are pickwasting. On some boards they can be good
1. for fast and easy income
2. Sometimes they control 2-3 big bonuses and give easy counters.

The +1 bonuses are shit 99% of the time.
Only useful for counters.

You already got that there isnt an "must have" area. I mean, that you cant say that SA is better than Australia in general. I think you must find the balance between coverage (f.e. imo you should never leave a big area like SA alone if there are no wastelands) and safe income. Safe income is very very important because when you dont have income after turn 2-3 its almost game over.

Hello

bonuses with lesser than 3 value are pickwasting 90% of the time.

If you see that your opponent never picks +2 / +1 bonuses, this opens up new options.

Moreover, all bonuses have the same territory/income ratio. Therefore it seems hard to discern the best possible picks.

It takes like 1 line of code for a WarLight bot to determine the value of picks, based on income / territory ratio. You actually have to use your brain on this one. Usually the way the WarLords and wastelands are aligned, creates some interesting areas.

For me, one of the most important parts is, that there is a nice bonus, which I can safely take first.

What the currently ranked second in the ladder did there in South America was suprprisingly irresponsible.
