Why do you need this app?Has this ever happened to you? Last year, my team lost a playoff match which cost us a potential trip to the Nationals in Las Vegas. We lost by 8 points, or less than 2% of the total team points. If we had this app back then, we would have been better equipped to make more informed strategic decisions. This could have made the difference between losing and winning! Don't let this happen to YOUR team! Give yourself the best possible chance to win your matches! We recently played the same team, and, using this app, we made better decisions which resulted in victory for our team. We essentially ensured victory with our final match because we had all the correct data at our fingertips.
