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 […]

More Mutations

Mutation in genetic algorithms is tied to population size.  That is why there will be much more mutation for Nakamotos and Szabos bloodlines than Buterins.  The first article (link) covering mutation dives into bloodline theories, however we still need to examine the population growth associated with breeds and mutation.  Legendary Creating a champion Legendary breed […]

Zed Run Breeding Update

There are many opinions on the recent update to Zed Run’s breeding system. There is a lot to unpack, and I’m sure that my opinion will adjust with new information.  However, at this point I am happy with the simplicity and impact of the current update.  Let’s jump in. Time Breeding and the timeline of […]

Tiering Up

There is a lot of talk about odds, and that the community thinks there may need to be some changes.  Before all that, we need to discuss the tiers of horses built into the game.  Similar to the color chart that features super rare, rare, and common colors, there is also three tiers of genesis […]

Twin Hunters

Breeding twins is an important part of exploring Zed Run’s genetic algorithm.  It offers the chance to compare mutation rates and crossover pattern variables.  Additionally, twins offer the chance to create cousin lines of genetic descent.  Collecting twins off the best horses in the game offers new stable ownesr a chance to compete with the […]

One in a Billion

The expression “One in a Billion” is used from time to time, but have you ever really asked yourself what does that even mean?  The expression is often used to define a rare or extraordinary event or object.  The Zed Gazette Team (ZGT) believes that the digital racehorses of Zed Run are unique and truly […]

Keeping It Exclusive

A question heard form the community often is, how do we value bred horses.  Honestly, it isn’t a science and is determined by the purchasers perceived value.  How do we know how much an offspring from Breathless Edge should cost with 35+ odds?   Is this offspring for collecting, racing, breeding?   This article is to take […]

Breeding Mutants

Mutants are a natural part of evolution, and have helped species grow and diversify overtime.  Similarly, genetic algorithms often require mutation rates to explore all available genomes.  Zed Run has four bloodlines with different populations, and each will a different level of mutation.   Population Size The population size of each bloodline will impact the mutation […]

Why Twins

Previously, we started taking a look at ZG’s breeding theory. For a quick recap, I am bullish on mares being dominant for inheritance of performance DNA, inbreeding is a good thing, and twins are the way to go. This article will take a closer look at why twins are important for all stables.  You can […]
