In short, Chaos Theory states that due to the complex nature of things (life, for example), behaviors are highly sensitive to the smallest of changes, and as such, can ultimately result in large differences in reality.
This would hold true in warfare.
I’m not sure if you know or not, but I’m a big fan of strategy, and my boy Sun Tzu’s knowledge has proven to be the pinnacle of truth in every single warfare simulation I played, including Evolve. Why do I bring up Chaos Theory? Because I’ve seen a lot of people worried about min/maxing this game, trying to come up with tactics or Hunter groups that will be the “best in all circumstances”. Chaos Theory disproves this. Because even if on paper, statistically, things look great, when we as people go to execute that plan, make small changes to vary the outcome (greatly) as we adapt to deal with the situation as it unfolds.
This is why the saying goes, “The best laid plans of mice (Hunters) and men (Monsters) often go astray”. Would you agree, or do you feel you can beat a mathematical impossibility?
