rocket starts and going berserk

If rocket start requirements are met, does going berserk in your first game negate the double points?

I would think going berserk during a rocket start would result in five points (same as going berserk while streaking) - not the three points it seems are being awarded.

Is this a glitch? Or?

What should and/or does going berserk during a rocket start earn - point-wise?

While the rocket start feature was implemented, berserking in the first game did indeed result in five points. However, rocket start has been removed from lichess and now a win in the first game will yield either 2 or 3 points.

Only registered members with one week of lichess activity can contribute to the Q&A.
