In Steamroller, which takes higher priority in determining strength of schedule? It was my understanding that scenario trumps assassination, but someone I know; seems to think differently.

The way by which a game was won (scenario, assassination, higher-order tiebreaker) has no relevance for strength of schedule. For SoS, you just total the tournament points that all your opponents from the tournament have scored.

Players score tournament points based on their performance during each match. A player gains 1 tournament point for a win and 0 for a loss or draw. Tournament points determine a player’s current standing in a tournament. In the case of two players with the same score, determine which one ranks higher by adding the tournament score of all of the opponents each player faced over the previous rounds (strength of schedule).

For example, after four rounds Jason and Doug are tied for second place. To break the tie, the TO adds up all the tournament points of Jason’s opponents for the previous four rounds and compares the total to the combined score of Doug’s opponents for those rounds. The player whose opponents have the highest total score has the best strength of schedule score and earns the higher rank.
