there is nothing terrible in the white to have a draw in this game because if we look at the game in detail we will see that the blacks play very passively and help the appearance of this fort. The blacks play for siege but make a mistake with the K10 field, sacrifice a viking and have 50 moves that can lead to a narrow fort and a repeat of the position. Changing every rule to a worse score for white is not good. For me in this party, the fair result is drawn because blacks are not played correctly

Is there a real reason we want those draws anyways? 8/8b seem to strongly contradict rule 10. Why not simply declare this a black win? We did that in in various offline games, since that removes the dire need for an umpire all the time to decide with rule takes precedence (which is highly subjective anyways).
