To determine which player has the greater strength in a region, total and compare the strength values of all unit and leader tokens (fresh and exhausted) controlled by each player in the region.
The player who has the will of the people controls the neutral tokens in the region. Neutral units and leaders in that region contribute their strength values to the player’s strength total as long as the player has at least one faction unit or faction leader in that region.
The player with the higher total has the greater strength.
If players have the same strength total in a region, the player who controls more tokens in the region is considered to have the greater strength. If the players also have an equal number of tokens in the region, the player who has the will of the people is considered to have the greater strength. If a region has no tokens at all, neither player has the greater strength.
