The current clan points system is out of step with what is needed

It is a system that allows a clan who only plays one challenge to finish higher than a clan that plays a lot of challenges

It is also open to sandbagging by being able to finish challenges early

My proposal is that as this is about clan challenges

The points should be awarded for clan challenges rather than clan games as it is now

Because the amount of members in clan challenges varies this should be where the games comes in

So you would get three points for a clan challenge win plus one point per game won

The gross points would be ( ( clan challenge *3 ) + games won ) which can be checked

The gross points at the moment cannot be checked

Currently a 3 man challenge could finish in the following ways

clan a wins 6 - 0 clan a gets 6 points clan b gets -6 points

clan a wins 5 - 1 clan a gets 6 points clan b gets -6 points

clan a wins 4 - 2 clan a gets 6 points clan b gets -6 points

clan a draws with clan b each gets 3 points

New

clan a wins 6 - 0 clan a gets 9 points clan b gets 0 points

clan a wins 5 - 1 clan a gets 8 points clan b gets 1 points

clan a wins 4 - 2 clan a gets 7 points clan b gets 2 points

clan a draws with clan b each gets 3 points

Some may say that with this system the clan that plays a lot of challenges will win

That would be the same in any of the past years

But surely we want clans to play lots of matches

It is only half way through the current year but it looks to me like it is stagnating

With the same old clans at the top
