Updating one thing at a time between submits to the rumble helps you track the effect of each improvement separately. The final result is sometimes different from small scale test beds.

At the same time, multiple improvements which only work together might never make it to the rumble.

For example:

- Wave surfing/Precise Prediction without a strong danger function is inferior to shrapnel dodging.

- Advanced dodging and targeting in melee sometimes don´t work because of weak melee radar.

- Adding more classifiers to k-NN search not working due to bad tuning.

- Fixing a Performance Enhancing Bug hurts the score unless you combine another improvement to take advantage of the fix.
