Ah, understand it now. I just saw Grunt having a better score compared to him, didn't fully grasp the scoring rules yet I guess.Incorrect, he was the 5th best player, even with a minus score. thus he wins for tournament scoring.
For a example, if the Scenario is not balanced and I have 8 Syrian players win and only 2 US players. The best 5 scores still win from each side. - There is no penalty for being on the wrong end of the scenario - This is about out performing the other matches. 5 players from each side earn a score.
