Score: measures the fitness of the warrior against other warriors on
the specific hill. The higher the score, the more dominant the warrior
but only against the 25 warriors on Standard Hill. Normally, this type
of King have advantage over the rest of the hill population (a strategy
"breakthrough" has been found). For example, Combatra-derived Artabmoc,
is very effective against Qscan or long coded warriors which I think
are the majority of current standard hill. Almost all Kings were so
dominant until more robust warriors got on the hill and slowly pulling
the King down and finally being pushed out.

Age: measures the derability or adaptability of the warrior against
various challenges. The older the warriors, the better the warrior in
term of survival. Son of Vain for example have seen a lot of
challengers of various types and strategies but managed to hang on due
to its 'tough' instruction. However, as time goes on, new warriors with
more efficient codes will enter and displace old warriors.

In summary, both Age and Score can be referred for specific objective.
I think the best way is to start with both. Get the high score warriors
and get their strategies. Do the same with old aged warriors.

Best warrior is relative to chosen conditions.
