Hi Derrick,

Thanks for signing up and using the Vault. The free membership give you access to the Vault as a trial and as such you are limited to creating 2 opponents. You can also create 2 matches and 2 training sessions per month. if you like the Vault you can upgrade to the plus or premium membership and have unlimited access.

The best way to use the Vault is as you suggest, by building up a big database of all your opponents. The Vault does not supply information on how to play players but rather asks you to enter that information. By entering this type of information you start to think about the best tactics to use. Just thinking about how to play someone is a good start but by recording this information and refining it each time you play someone, you will really improve your tactical thinking. If you get stuck and are not sure what information to enter then you can always ask us a question here on ask the coach and we'd be happy to offer our thoughts.

Even if you don't want to use the Vault, you should record this information somehow. Either use a spreadsheet or even a notebook. It really will make a big difference to your game.

Good luck with it all.
