Round Limit Result

Postby draza123 on Sun May 12, 2013 3:29 pm

What happens in the event of a round limit being reached? Is the game a tie? Does the person with the most regions win?

Round Limit

With round limits, the game will automatically finish at the end of the specified round. The winner will be the surviving player with the most troops. If there is a tie, it will be broken based on the most regions. If there is still a tie, the winner is selected based on join order. When playing a round limited game with teams, the winning team will be based on combined teamwide troop count. This option is great for avoiding stalemates and can add some spice to the game as the deadline approaches!

I'm sorry, why is 'join order' the third tie-breaker? It seems that that one has nothing to do with the game that was just played other than luck... or troops deployed during the game? Or troops killed? There are so many options to consider, 'join order' would probably be my last option for a tie-breaker, even behind just rolling some dice to see who wins a final battle. I'd probably even rather a draw be called and the other player's points be given to both teams/players.

It would probably be a lot harder to determine your other options in terms of coding needed to figure it out. Though I agree troops deployed sounds like a better third place tie breaker decision.

The chances that there is a troop count and region count tie probably rarely happens.
