Ridiculous Tie-breaker

Post by Ratchael » 07 January 2021, 01:30

Hi, I don't see many people posting here, so I hope this message won't go unnoticed...

So, when 2 players at the end of a game share the same number of points, the tie-breaker is... time left ? Really ? :roll:

I'd rather see a draw between the two players, or even the player who started last winning the game than such a ridiculous tie-breaker...

Yes, this is a very silly tie-break rule!
But I think you need to write not to the forum, but to the registration system with an error and suggestions.

Very much agreed, tiebreaker based on time remaining is terrible, a tie should result in a tie, or we should come up with a better tiebreaker that is tied to gameplay.

Agree very odd tie-breaker. Please vote for http://boardgamearena.com/bug?id=23493&vote this suggestion bug to give it more attention.
In this game it feels fair to just have a draw when everything is equal at the end.

Well, this change does not bode well with turn based games tbh...
