Guess what? Dead last place. Sometimes at least, it is working as intended.
Whoa, I AFKd at the fountain the other day and got last place. There's definitely some connection here.

Doing nothing = no points? MIND F*CK

I like to compare personal score in Dominion to QB Passer Rating in the NFL -- it doesn't always show who wins or losses, but chances are the team with the higher overall personal score is going to win, just like how often the QB with higher Passer Rating is likely the QB on the team who won the game.

Everybody gets it that it doesn't show the whole story, but it's a solid barometer. My only beef with personal score is that I think it awards too many points for Martyr, and that it needs some way to consistently score interrupts and defense against a team.
