The Current SCTFL Points system works like this:

Code:
First Half of Freeplay - 5/2/1 for first 20 matches. +2 for Intercontinental
3/1/0 for every match after that. +2 for Intercontinental
Second Half of Freeplay - 5/2/1 for first 20 matches. +2 for Intercontinental
3/1/0 for every match after that. +2 for Intercontinental


There are a couple of problems with this system. #1, in this system, the optimal matches to play over the course of the entire season is 40. However, the least active clans that made playoffs this season played 80 matches, while the most active played over 120. The point of diminishing returns is to help the less active clans, but the help they received this season was not much. Around 50% of the least active clans matches had diminished returns. While around 66% of the most active clans matches had diminished returns. Not a really big difference.

The Proposed SCTFL Points system will work like this:


Code:
First Half of Freeplay - 7/3/1 for first 20 matches. +2 for Intercontinental
5/2/1 for next 20 matches. +2 for Intercontinental
3/1/0 for all matches after that. +2 for Intercontinental
Second Half of Freeplay - 7/3/1 for first 20 matches. +2 for Intercontinental
5/2/1 for next 20 matches. +2 for Intercontinental
3/1/0 for all matches after that. +2 for Intercontinental


What this means is that if a similiar number of matches is played next season, the least active clans will have almost no matches with extremely diminished returns, while the most active clans will have 33% of thier matches with extremely diminished returns. What this means is that the optimal number of matches to be played are 80. However, a problem with this system is if the least active clans actually play less than 80 total matches, they will have a disadvantage since the most active clans have already reaped all benefits from these bonuses.

Example
Clan A - 60-48-12 Record
Points in current system = 252 points
Points in Proposed system = 356 Points

Clan B - 52-20-8 Record
Points in current system = 230 Points
Points in Proposed system = 352 Points

As you can see, the clans with the better record is now actually much closer to the extremely active but worst record clan.

We've been talking about this with my old soldatter friend and the new point system would be better.
