As of 2020.12 the LOTS articles are a WIP. If you have a question that isn't answered, or a topic you'd like to see added, we'd like to hear about it. Post your thoughts on the Talk:Learning to Play the Game (LPG) page.

I named the advanced training "Learning OTS" because I think this principle is very important.

There is a hierarchy:

  • Objective - What you are trying to do.
  • Tactics - How you are going to do it.
  • Strategy - Why are you doing it.

Everything choice you make in a game should start at Strategy and flow backwards from there. Unfortunately it is very easy to start at an Objective and get tunnel vision from there.
