As a nemesis pilot, you should already know the answer yourself. Now be quiet or you'll scare off my dinner.

But what if one side has only 1 ship and the other has 2 ships but the ship in the first side "draw" against both ships?

Deef Jiffy: I thought about that. The problem would solve itself as the side with more than one ship could pick something else that would hopefully win the game.

Examples:

Let's say Side 1 is a Yehat, while Side 2 is a Spathi and an Androsynth. The Yehat and Spathi are fighting and not getting anywhere. A cease-fire is called. Side 2 can now choose between their Spathi and Androsynth. The Androsynth fights the Yehat and loses. This puts it back to Spathi and Yehat, which is unwinnable. The match is a draw.

The same thing happens later, but this time the Androsynth defeats the Yehat. Side 2 wins.

Now here's a bad situation: Side 1 has a Yehat, Side 2 has two Spathi. I would say common courtesy dictates that the Yehat should go crashing into a planet since Side 1 is beaten both in points and in ship number. In all honesty, this scenario is about as likely as a royal flush in a poker game. Also, this is assuming both the Spathi and Yehat play with great skill and precision. A cease-fire isn't needed if the Yehat keeps letting missles slip past his defenses or the Spathi flies too close.

Thanks for the correction, Shiver.  Would you believe that english is my native language?  My writing style is a product of the U.S. education system.  Roll Eyes
