9.3.5 Coopertition™ Bonus
All teams on the winning ALLIANCE will receive a coopertition bonus: a number of seeding points equal to twice the unpenalized score (the score without any assessed penalties) of the losing ALLIANCE."
If I am reading this correctly this means that the formula for the winning team A is S=P+2L
Where S is the seeding score; P is the penalized score of the winning team, and L is the unpenalized score of the losing team.
So say the Red Alliance wins over the Blue Alliance 150 but incurred 3 penalties.
The Red seeding score would be 15 and the Blue seeding score would be 18.
Is this correct? Am I missing something? If not I believe this to be the only downfall of this game.

This is correct.
It's not a downfall, though. It's like <G14> last year: making it clear that blowing out an opponent is a bad thing.
