Iterating through here: Hare quota is 50. SMV first elects all of {B1, C1, D1, E1}, since all of them have Quota Scores of 410 (vs F1’s 400 and A1-5’s initial 380, which decreases as candidates are elected). Then, F1 is selected since they beat all the best remaining A candidate in Quota Score 400 to 100.

The divergence here is that the A faction scores all of their mutually most-preferred candidates at least 6 points higher (out of a range of 10) than any other candidates yet none of them win.
