I am going to make a tournament for an upcoming con. I sorta did this on the fly last year. I made a round robin of 6 boats. Everyone played 5 games. At the end people wanted to know who won. I had no idea how to figure it out.


Here is my dilemma: How to decide who wins? What’s more important, hits given, subs sunk, or hits taken? Should it be a combo of the above?

What do you think?

Clearly most subs sunk should determine the winner.
In case of a tie, most damage given should be the first tiebreaker.
If there is still a tie, least damage received.
If there is still a tie, call it a draw.

I agree with this scoring system. Subs sunk is most important, followed by damage given/taken.

However, I would *not* use scoring to determine the winner. Rather, I'd score to determine 2 finalists and have them battle it out in one last death-or-glory match.
