How is possible to get spoils without taking a territory?

Generally it's not.

But you're teammate could get kicked out, which would give you his spoils.

Or if by "taking" you mean attacking and winning ... then you can get a spoil without "taking" a territ if you bombard.

I had to think a bit about that one. Perhaps you're in a Feudal game right now?

I agree with both posts :) . For team games especially quads, no spoils places the emphasis pn "skill" and strategy" whereaa escalating and flat rate bring in randomness and "luck". As a inldividual player in games with 4 or more (standard ,terminator, maybe even assassin) escalating avoids stalemates and involves a special set of skills.

No Spoils are Great! The least luck involved, me and my Team (The A-Team) play almost only No Spoil games.

Try these settings, our favorite:

Quads, Automatic deploy, Sequential, No Spoils, Chained reinforced, Fog of war. The Best!!! :D

What is certain and all top players would agree I think, is that playing non escalating games with more than 2 "players" leads to frustrating stalemates. I would even go much further and say that ANY non escalating game with 3 or more players or parties that play reasonably enough will always lead to stalemate unless fog,trench and map objectives create dangerously dynamic situations.
The round limit option boosted non escalating games. There is much more sence to play those games now. In my opinion, fog is necessary. Being the last to play offers a considerable advantage otherwise in my opinion.
