ok, I just revised the leader board above and showed the final winners for round 3
ishfar manages to hang in there for a chance still being top dog in this tournament by a mere 9 points and gets another win.
Abbasid gets his first points since their match turned into the swing match as to which sides wins points.
I am very surprised that we always have exactly 50:50 results in all rounds. Always the same number of blue and red winners/losers. You would think that there is sometimes a deviation, because the scenario is not perfectly balanced or so.
I am a rather weak player, and had big problems in the scenarios, which of course must have been due to the one-sided design .
Are the scenarios really so well designed, or do I not fully understand tournament rules?
You aren't scored by how well you did against your opponent, you're scored by how well you did relative to everyone else on the same side as you. So a scenario can be wildly unbalanced, but that doesn't matter so long as you lose less badly than the others.
Greyfox is correct. Its something to keep in mind in every battle. Your goal is to do better than everyone else facing the same similar challenge. There is going to be times that the challenge is not fair at all. You will face difficult situations.
If you cannot handle that, this is not a Tournament for you.
