do you all realize, that adding extra rules in a case of stalemate is not a solution. every extra rule WILL be worked out to get easier opponents. people are very crative and fast learning. if i can think a solution in 10 minutes to each extra rule, why do you think other players can't? in my opinion, the scoring system should be changed in a way, that to reach a perfect score for both teams would be nearly impossible. and even if somehow two teams has a tie score, then all the existing tiebreakers should apply, with the addition of some new ones. if you are looking for a solution in a case of the existing scoring system, when stalemate happens, nothing is gonna change. average alliances would still loose to stacking alliances and will have no benefit from the 'new' extra tiebreakers. pointless wars will continue and all new rules in a case of stalemate will lead to even more sandbagging. looking for a solution to stalemate is like loking for a solution to consequences, and not the solution for a reason itself.
