Another game with questionable end condition

Postby BenJackson » Wed Dec 14, 2011 8:25 pm

In this game my two opponents killed each other, making the score 2-2-1 "rank stabilized". They don't get a shot at me because having no hills they don't "count" (so they have no chance to change their tie) and there are no points left for me to score:

EDITED:

I think we had some code to prevent the scoring leader from not being eliminated. I'll need to check it.

I've had games like that before, including one where the two other players captured each others hills simultaneously. I thought the cutoff was a bug until I realized what had happened.

So, at one point I thought we had some code that checked some special conditions of the scoring leaders. It wasn't in the code base and I didn't find it in the history either, but I think we talked about it on irc. Given the fact that we are so close to finals, we are not going to change the rules anymore.

The best I can say is try to suicide enemies of your enemies to protect your enemies from their enemies until you control the map and wipe out your enemies on exactly the same turn for maximum profit.
