With his work, the author primarily addresses amateurs and club players (up to a rating of approx. 2000), who want to improve their level through targeted and effective training. For this purpose he uses an unconventional approach, and a sometimes unusual terminology. The reader is thus presented with an innovative model of thinking which enables him to quickly grasp the material and positional characteristics of a position. A model that aims to make a comprehensive set of rules dispensable and focuses on the essentials, namely on intense exercises of seeing and independent thinking. On the basis of well-selected exercises, the reader can learn and internalize how to find solutions to key problems - such as recognizing patterns and detecting strong moves. With all this, the author gradually progresses from simple beginnings to more difficult and eventually quite demanding content, which requires the reader´s thorough cooperation. Those who steadfastly follow him on this path will experience how their own potential in terms of combat power and skill level increases. Patrick Karcher is a strong amateur and club player, who has risen to the level of a candidate master in a short time thanks to his own training method. The study of his book will also pave the reader´s way to a deeper understanding of the game.

A Real-time Strategy (RTS) game is an adversarial game where the participants position and maneuver units and structures under their control to secure areas of the map and/or win by destroying their opponents´ units and structures. It is possible to train new units and build new structures during the course of a game with limited amount of resources present in the setting. As opposed to comparable turn-based adversarial games such as chess and go, opponents do not wait for each others´ moves so the game progresses naturally with units interacting each other in real time. As a result of the real-time nature of the game, the complexity of the game dramatically increases. In recent years, there has been an increasing interest in RTS games in the artificial intelligence community, especially from the perspective of reinforcement learning, to create an agent to play the RTS game, due to the problem´s large state-action space. Modeling and implementing an efficient learning agent that is able to cope with the large state space is a difficult task.
