TaCtix:
What's the tiebreaking procedure? I could easily envision a scenario where two or more players recorded the same number of points. If, say, one player had two wins, a third place finish, and a last-place finish, he'd have seven points. If someone else had three second place finishes and a third place finish, he'd also have seven points. (In this scenario, presumably, the other two players would both have fewer than seven points, meaning one of our first two players is the group winner.) Which one is determined to win the group? Most wins? Fewest last place finishes? Most times finishing ahead of the player he is tied with? Better finish on one particular map? Another game on a map to be determined? How exactly would that be determined?
It is also possible that players could end up with not only the same point total, but the exactly same positions. If, say, two players each had two wins and two third place finishes, they'd each have eight points, and they're be no way to determine a victor without another game. (Short of the "one map counts more" idea, that is.)
I apologize if you've answered this before. Clearly, I had time to type out long and confusing questions, but not time to read the thread to see if those long and confusing questions had already been answered.
