Sure does. Thanks a lot.Each quarter of the table is worth 100 victory points at the end of the battle - provided only you have units in that area. As you both start in seperate halves of the board you both start with two quarters that you are in control of.
Now if the opponent doesn't move throughout the battle - he cannot take your table quarters from you. If both you and your opponent are in a table quarter they become contested ground and neither side can claim victory points for them. Therefore you get an extra 200 victory points while his side of the battleground is contested by your units.
Does that make sense?
