I asked this in the patch notes thread a few days back but think this might be a better venue.
I would like to verify that the winning criteria is the absolute score rather than the nearest to victory score (raw number versus percentage). Is that correct in all circumstances and if so, why? A coalition score of 700, as an example, is not as close to victory as an individual score of 699 (47% versus 70%) so does the coalition always win? I think for me the confusion is that the wording states “relative progress” towards victory when that does not seem to be the case.
Just curious more than anything at this point for future reference so I know how to calculate my province upgrades accordingly.
