Sorry for spamming the board, but we have a Chronos Protocol event on Saturday, and I'd really like to know before that, to adjust the pairings/tiebreakers system. Thanks!

I can't locate the 1.3 tournament rules, but I remember looking it up at some point and concluding that you did not receive a win for a timed win. The 1.0 rules seem to agree with this.

The 1.4 rules suggest that you do receive a win.... but i'll be damned if I know what a "modified" win is - as the term isn't used anywhere else in the document.

Sounds like a question for FFG.

Going to Time
Players play both games over the course of 65 minutes. The
second game is not started until the first game is completed.
If time is called and neither player has achieved victory in
the current game, then play continues until both players have
completed one turn. If victory has still not been achieved after
the final turn, then no one wins the game and the players
score match points based on the number of agenda points they
currently have. Players then total up their match points like
normal to see who won the match.

after the final turn, then the player with the highest number
of agenda points gets a modified win and gains 1 prestige. If
players have the same number of agenda points, they each gain
1 prestige.

Tournament Rules v1.3

So, nothing.

Tournament Rules 1.4 were actually the same as 1.3. (You can check the cached version of the site here. The "new rules" quoted above are from Tournament Rules 1.4.1, updated this morning. =)

My reasoning would lead me to believe that this modified win references a win that counts towards weak side wins but awards only 1 prestige instead of the normal 2.

Got this answered along with the weak side wins issue for super byes.

I noticed in the 1.4.1 update that timed wins now count as modified wins. Am I correctly assuming that a modified win is a win that counts towards weak side wins but only awards 1 prestige point instead of 2?

Yes you are correct with how they count for weak side wins.
