ZED Run is, and will always be, a breeding game with a racing test on the side.   There are very basic and fundamental steps in genetic algorithms that stables should know.  We have an initial population of genesis ZED horses, we then calculate fitness using racing, we select fit individuals to then breed together with […]

Finding a Legend

Zed Run is a breeding game with a racing cherry on top.  We breed new horses in hopes that their griffin and class odds is greater than their parents.  There are many strategies and theories to do this moving throughout the Zed community, and this article has a focus on inbreeding.  Let’s take a look […]

Nak it Off

There are many opinions on Zed Run’s pricing for breeding minimums.  Do stables want the price to increase, or decrease?  Different changes for different bloodlines?  This article makes the argument that lower minimums will protect Nakamoto bloodline scarcity.   Bloodlines Let’s begin with a refresher on Zed Run run bloodlines.  There are four within the game […]

Familial Roles

Zed Run is a game of discovery, and we must use all the evidence at our disposal to become better players.  This theory involves the roles of mares and stallions within the genetic algorithm.  It is only a theory based on circumstantial evidence from what we know about the rules of Zed Run.  This article […]

Basic Breeding Guide

One of the most common questions I receive from Zed Run stables is, “what is the best breeding strategy?”.  This is a complicated question, but with the return of breeding it seems time to make a basic plan available.  This article will take a quick dive into a strategy using only four genesis horses.  Inbreeding […]

Horse Trader

The rules for breeding have changed quite a bit since the last breeding cycle.  Rule changes need to account for a change in strategy.  The old plan of twins is out, and horse trading could take it’s place. One Child Policy We are now working in the one child policy because mares can only have […]

Lets Talk Percents

Many of the ZedGazette Team theories are based in historical horse racing practices or computer science genetic algorithm theory.  This time around, it is mostly conjecture.  For this article, we will look at the blog created by the former community manager Beau. Beau’s Blog In the process of researching Zed Run, I went back into […]

Identical by Descent

Twins and cousin lines are important to the ZedGazette Team (ZGT) breeding theory.  We have highlighted the history of inbreeding IRL when examining Medina Spirit’s pedigree (link) and the importance of creating cousin lines with siblings.  This article will look at the technique “Identical by Descent” used in genetic algorithms. Genetic Algorithms Genetic algorithms are […]
