I'm not sure cramming what worked in Warhammer into KoW is going to make your games better. Maybe the key is to start over and come up with a different tournament setup?

I'm not sure anyone here wants the warhammer way anyhow. We might have switched over looking for something warhammery but realised it's its own thing and that's good!

This indeed seems like a nice, working system. I agree with Daniel.
I do respect your opinions even when I do not state so, we are all free to disagree and agree here. And I certainly do not assume that my ideas about the rules would be the only proper ones. We all have our own ways for playing these games and that is fine.

An alternative to the points difference sliding scale could be to use the scenario to award points to each player and hence each team.
eg in the kill scenario, for each 250 pts taken give 1pt to the player. this could lead to scores of 1-1, 2-2, 3-3.... 8-8. for a draw but the score reflects the how successfully that they killed the enemy and therefore met the success criteria.
similar with pillage, dominate, invade etc. giving tournament points for the teams for each objective held.

KOW is a different game, and ETC would probably benefit more, if they adopted it in such a way, than if they tried to squeeze it into existing warhammer shaped scoring systems.

just my thoughts.
