    Recently another player and I agreed to a draw, but I was awarded the full point, instead of each of us getting half a point for the game.

    Has the scoring of draws changed since the FAQ was written?

    You were awarded the full 2 points because you won the first game and took a draw in the second game. This has the effect of 1.5 -0.5 scoring. This is why you were awarded 2 points for the challenge. The scoring has not changed, it has always been this way.

    Now I think I get it: the winner of the challenge gets two points, no matter how the individual game points add up. So either two wins or a win and a draw (in a two-person match) would result in the winning clan getting two points for the challenge.

    @Russ -- never mind the message I sent you through the feedback form.

    never mind padger. He is a decent guy, just not on board with the scoring system.

    again I remind you
    it was not a majority
    it was a plurality
    the majority wanted something else
    but you guys got the most votes, not a majority, and so won

    It took me a while to understand that, because I was confusing the prize points with the total possible game points (which happened to be the same number).

    112 voted .
    27 option one annual net points .
    36 option two annual net points and punish cheats

    Option one and two were basically the same thing.
    SO 63 out of 112 is s MAJORITY.

    hence a plurality

    Maybe we could agree on "coalition"? Choice two alone garnered the plurality of votes (36).
