    How about once a year having a clan winner? Then you could knock all the points back to zero. That way everyone gets a chance every year. It could be like winning the World Series, or the World Cup, or the Super Bowl...well, maybe not like that. Anyway, just a thought.

    Good Idea!

    Have a seperate statistic for yearly wins and reset this each year on the RHP anniversary and award some sort of online trophy to the winning clan each year. Each clan could still maintain their regular statistics as they currently are.

    As well as that you could have a knock out cup compo, for any team that wishes to enter. Min of 10 players per team. Say 3/7 T/o. Once the result is decided the draw for the next round could be made and the games started. If it's a draw then the team placed lowest in the league goes though.

    You could also have an American style playoff with say the top 4 in the table qualifying for the quarter finals and the next 8 in a qualifying round to get into the quarter finals. With the top 4 seeded to play one of the winners of the qualifying round.

    In this way teams will have something to play for even if they are not going to win the league.

    They could be called the League title, The All in cup and the League play offs.

    Thanks Mr. Miller, perhaps the support of an esteemed moderator might draw a little more attention to this. Lets look at the point spread between the leading clan and say, the 15th place clan. There is no way, ever, that 15 is going to see the #1 spot. We could call it the Clanly Cup ...or maybe something even more ridiculous than that. It might heat up clan competition, as every year a fresh start will ensure that everyone gets a chance to "go for the gold".

    Bob, I haven't been a moderator for quite some time now, esteemed or otherwise , but I suspect that if several clan leaders were to suggest this idea to Russ, that would be more likely to get his attention and perhaps make it happen.

    I'm a clan leader and think it's a good idea. Could we not have two links. One on an annual basis and one overall, as it is now?

    Then I'll be the first one to 'rec' this idea.

    I think this is a great idea. That way, some of the newer clans would still be able to have their name at the top.

    I think this is a very good idea. At the moment, clans are accumulating points with no real reason for doing so (apart from the quodos of having 'X' amount of points).

    Kind regards,

    yes, but one query, if this idea was used what would be off the clan leagues? still have them do you think?

    this is an amazing idea.. i don't write on these forums very often but this deservered it... it would be great as it would help the smaller clans recruit(like mine tHe dIRTy pITS for all interested ) along with giving everyone a chance at the number one spot. big thumbs up!!
    And
    this way maybe all the new ones won't wanna jump into a clan on the first page ..
