    The match point while hidden change was done because at it's core, one of the major design fundamentals of VvV is to promote combat encounters. Given that occupation points were awarded very fast, the optimal strategy for winning was based around hiding (and not having a combat encounter). With this change, the optimal strategy is refocused to encouraging those combat encounters either via the altars or slaying your enemies to be the only guild occupying (read: alive and unhidden) the city.
