Okay, so the Spreading Infection Act II quest has the Overlord and Heroes competing for a majority on points. Overlord has to get chained monsters off the map (or knock out each hero with them once), Heroes have to kill infected monsters. The quest text specifically says "When an infected monster is defeated by a hero" (and similarly "When a hero is knocked down by an infected monsters - knock outs via non-infected monsters don't count for the alternative OL win condition).

So what happens when the OL uses Blood Rage on a monster? It's defeated, but not by the heroes. Given there's only two Blood Rage cards, and it's a single encounter quest, I'm tempted to say to play as written, but it could theoretically lead to a stalemate if the OL could cycle his deck sufficiently to get three casts out. Where there are no monsters left on the board, but the heroes haven't earned enough points to win the scenario. Hence it seems a bit odd.

If we sent this question to FFG, I'd guess that they'd say a monster defeated via Blood Rage would count toward the heroes' points, even though the heroes didn't defeat the monster. They generally want to avoid situations that could lead to stalemates.
