Default Spoiling Attack, Victory

While starting to adopt the Spoiling Attack scenario (Scenario Book I, #6) from the Ogre map to M1, I've discovered that the victory conditions given are a bit wonky. There is a minor glitch for partial attacker victory, and a lot combinations not covered by stalemate.

As written:
****************
6.43 Victory conditions.
* The attacker scores 20 or more points and exits seven or more units: total attacker victory.
* The attacker scores 20 or more points and exits at least three units: partial attacker victory.
* The attacker scores fewer than 20 points and exits seven or more units: stalemate.
* The attacker scores fewer than 20 points and exits three to six units: partial defense victory.
* The attacker scores fewer than 20 points and exits two or fewer units: total defense victory.
****************

Suggest fixes:
* The attacker scores 20 or more points and exits seven or more units: total attacker victory.
* The attacker scores 20 or more points and exits three to six units: partial attacker victory.
* Other results than those listed above or below: stalemate.
* The attacker scores fewer than 20 points and exits three to six units: partial defense victory.
* The attacker scores fewer than 20 points and exits two or fewer units: total defense victory.


Then, the scenario variant 6.52 Spoofed! fails to provide any alternate victory conditions. Without an Ogre present for the defense, the attacker would be unable to score any points and therefor incapable of gaining any victory.

Potential fix (not yet playtested to see if this is balanced or not):
* The last three victory conditions all get moved up one step, resulting in:
* The attacker exits seven or more units: attacker victory.
* The attacker exits three to six units: stalemate.
* The attacker exits two or fewer units: defense victory.

If those aren't balanced conditions for Spoofed!, then new ones will need to be drawn up.


And the wonkiness of the written victory conditions raises the question of how much this scenario was playtested before publication.
