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 c ...[text shortened]... gh the current year but it looks to me like it is stagnating
With the same old clans at the top

Ok. So I read your proposal.
First of all, the first sentence of your post usually represents either
a Problem Statement or an Opportunity for Improvement (known in business world as a Business Opportunity Statement).
Your first sentence does not remotely meet the minimum requirements to be either as it has no basis in fact.
This renders the rest ...[text shortened]... ense !!!
But by all means, keep posting your ideas here.
For entertainment value, of course.

As I understand it the cheating was that 2 or three clans got together to get points for one of them
How does changing the points system have anything to do with that
As for awarding points for losing
It is a lot better than now where you get double points ...[text shortened]... mister are running scared in case it changes your current position at the top of the greasy pole

We're not running scared.
We're running just fine.
We have always adapted to rule changes.
We play often because we have a clan leader that gets us challenges and does his homework.
And we play well. And clean.
As to the cheating, I just threw in that comment when I didn't really have to.
But any system is vulnerable to cheats.

You just don't like change
If you have read all the posts you will see I don't really care who wins the clan race
Makes no difference to me if it is your clan or not
What I do care about is having a stupid points system that takes away points that you have already earned
Originally posted by @mghrn55What is wrong with gross points ?
Your proposal doesn't make sense.
It would just evolve into something similar to the gross points method.
Except that it actually awards points for losing.
Deducting points for a lost challenge may seem cruel.
But think of it as being similar to a multiple choice test that deducts for a wrong answer to discourage guessing.
It's arbitrary. Simple as that.
