We revisit the approaches to the solution of parity games based on progress measures and show how the notion of quasi dominions can be integrated with those approaches. The idea is that, while progress measure based techniques typically focus on one of the two players, little information is gathered on the other player during the solution process. Adding quasi dominions provides additional information on this player that can be leveraged to greatly accelerate convergence to a progress measure.
