(+15 pts) – This person's army design and attitude evoked a feeling of tense, but fair competition for both of us (regardless of the outcome). I would be willing to play them again. (+10 pts) – Either this person's attitude, army, or playstyle was aggressive, but not off-putting. I would be hesitant, but willing to play them again. (+5 pt) – This person's army design, play style, and/or attitude created a negative play experience for me. I do not want to play them again. (+0 pts)
2) At the end of the tournament, each player will choose their favorite opponent. (+1 pt per vote) [any player awarding their opponent a 0 will have a brief, private discussion with the TO. Don’t feel you can’t give that score, I just want to know if I can help.]
General: Best General will be determined by win record, ties broken by opponent game win %, then by strength of schedule, then by battle points.
