Recommendation Engine

This is the Main Page; please use in a DESKTOP browser (recommend Chrome)!
If you are just getting started, just use the “all-around industry” build in the right and keep playing it on all maps until you understand it.
If you are a medium to advanced player, and want better tailored builds for particular maps, use the recommender below:
1) Change the drop down settings for the game type you are playing / considering.
2) The recommendation engine will estimate the game type and recommend the most viable builds for the map in table below.
If you are curious to learn more, detailed thoughts on various attributes and all recommended builds are in the tabs at the top.
If some acronym for one of the build picks below is unclear, hover over the bubble for full attribute name.
