Relaxed Level Play (have a good time and mistakes happen!)

Tournaments at this level are welcoming to all players, regardless of experience level. Players are encouraged to help each other improve and learn, so long as it does not significantly disrupt the game. The focus is on creating a fun and friendly environment.

Margin of Victory

At the end of each game, the winning player subtracts the loser’s score from his or her score. This is the winner’s Margin of Victory (“MoV”) for the round. If this would result in a negative number, the winner’s Margin of Victory is 0. If this would result in a number larger than 400, the winner’s Margin of Victory is 400. The losing player receives a Margin of Victory of 0.

If both players destroy their opponent’s fleet, each player receives a Margin of Victory of 0.

When a player receives a bye, he or she receives a Margin of Victory of 140.

End of game example: Bradley wins the game, destroying his opponent’s entire fleet (400 fleet points). Bradley’s opponent, Cara, has destroyed 150 points of Bradley’s ships and earned 75 points from the objective Intel Sweeps for a total score of 225. Bradley wins by 175 points and earns 8 tournament points and a Margin of Victory of 175. Cara earns 3 points and receives aMargin of Victory of 0.
