A little ridiculous. The North warpgate (high population, large territory) combined with the 50% advantage for taking TR territory (while they were ahead) made that 100k lead they had wither and die.

Overall, as an event a sham.... as a beta-event it was pretty effective in pointing out major issues in the WDS format.

IE:
Regular and even rotation of warpgates needed (IE, instead of 5 weeks, needed to have 6 weeks with rotation weekly or bi-weekly)
Scoring tweaks to minimize ghost-capping and off-peak hours
Scoring tweaks to reward captures with major fighting and population
They really need to weight the scores based on server population as well. (Ceres has same points as Connery in final tally? Even though it's got 5 times the population?)


We'll see how the next one turns out. I think they need to drop the 50% a little bit (or make a graduated scale)

I was watching a vid with luperza and malorn where malorn was explaining the tweaks to the scoring system were designed to have larger scores possible for the week. I guess it worked which is why the vs were able to erase the tr lead.
