This was my first time facing Tyranids it was a fun game. But, I have one question after the game.
I wiped his troops off an objective with a Greater Daemon. While his troops were alive I was contesting the objective, once they were dead and I was alone on it am I still contesting the objective?
My opponent claimed that I was no longer contesting the objective and that if the game had ended on turn 5 I had one he had one and my greater Daemon and Sorcerer who stood on the third were not contesting because all of his units were dead so it would have been a tie.
Is this the way it works?
I now know how this works.
Contesting Denies the other the objective up does not do anything for you. It is not some sort of half point.
