  • No attacking other teams, whether through coercion, DoS, theft, sabotage, or other malicious activity.
  • No collusion. Work only within your own team.

  • The team with the most points;
  • The team who completed the story first (or, as a tiebreaker, the team with the most plot-specific points);
