Sorry to continue the derailment, but I see it like @Putzfrau This is a game. Everything allowed by the game rules should be OK to do. Those who make the rules are responsible for that. It is like that in every sport and every other game. Playing to win, even to win at all costs (within the rules), especially within a tournament environment, is something that should be allowed and encouraged. Nobody who takes part in a game, especially one about war, should be made responsible for playing to win as long as they do so by the rules. The game mode with points is specifically made and advertised to be balanced. If you play that game mode the goal is to win the game. So no, what the players did in the tournament was not abusing the rules, but doing exactly what they were supposed to do. I have said it over at TGA and I will say it here: we should be thankful that events like that exist so early after release of the new rules. They allow the competitive players to min-max the heck out of the game and find all the holes GW left with their incomplete playtesting so they can be fixed, improving the game for us all.
