Thief's rewards (250$):
The Goal of these Rewards is to reward creativity, risktaking and never giving up. We are looking forward to good and creative Strategies


Win with below average civs the most amount of times: Lakota, India, Japanese
Most wins with civs, which thiefy doesnt understand: Hausa

Best Comeback:
Player can suggest a game, at least one caster has to think its a good comeback -> Then we vote
Most Creative Strategy
Player can suggest a game, at least one caster has to think its creative -> Then we vote
Most sniped factories throughout the tournament (mostly raids)
Players are responsible to announce their sniped factories at the end of the game (opponents can confirm it)

This means players who want a chance to get the reward need to propose in the replay if:
Game was creative?
Game had a great comeback?
Sniped Factories
Civs played

we try to be as objective as possible and enable as much democracy as possible, but Admin (Thief) decisions will always be final.
