The Instructions wrote:Conquer Club members are initially given a score of 1000. At the end of each game, the winner takes points away from each loser. The points to be awarded is calculated as (loser's score / winner's score) * 20, up to a maximum of 100 points from each opponent.
So yes, losing to a lower score player results in a greater point loss that a higher score one.

Well if you think about it, if you kept beating players ranked cadet and got lets say 10 points each win, and lost 10 each loss, you would win the majority of those games, making it a non-threatening risk. Farming points would be WAY too easy.

the conqueror would not be the smartest player, but the player with the most active games...
