Reputation (+1): (Post) Thanks for the heads-up Pvt.Toma, yea I'm well aware of the Act and you will not see any reference to the current situation except the 2.6 billion gold (99999999 actually) given by China if you help stop the US Armada mid-game.
Ah... I apologize. It wasn't meant as deception.
We discussed it at the mod lobby and some of us feel that a contest with only 2 entrants is more like a challenge between two users, and not a site-wide test of skill. The rewards are suitably high because we expect 3-5+ contestants. I understand your frustration, but I hope you understand why some of us might've reached that decision.
The full reputation award is likely to be given out.
