That's when you got to oppose 3000 AP and 2500 AP and anyone is treating this as 30 against 25 (more or less) throwing hundreds of APs at each other. 15 minutes for a whole war, yeah! Cool and all, except the consequences are a bit skewed: it's very rare to fall into the 0 to -39 range at the end. Most of the time you rocket past it, right into -200 territory, Complete Defeat. So, my players asked for Extended Contests, because they felt that with a Simple Contest they could never obtain this Complete Victory they craved for.
Maybe it'd be best to calculate consequences from the beginning APs?.
0 / -10% : -10% to your ability, etc. down to -100% and worse, a Complete Defeat.
