Pairing Kingdoms and Regions

If Valhalla podium positions for Maelstrom works, that would seem to be fine.  Meaning 1, 2, and 3 points for bronze, silver gold.  So two silvers in a kingdom would beat one gold.  If a tie, it goes to the highest medal (a gold and bronze would beat two silvers, etc.)

How's that?

Then we may have some positions not qualifying on those grounds, in which case highest points in a kingdom would claim their kingdom with no podium finish claimed, then the next highest points in a kingdom would get that kingdom.

I know that isn't crystal but I think you get it.  If player A has 40,000 Gnome points and Gnome is unclaimed and a position remains and that 40k is the highest for any single unclaimed (no podium) position, they would get it, then if there is still a position left and the next player has 34,000 points as unclaimed Dark Elves, that player can claim Dark Elves.

For now, since there are only 21 people who have played the first 10 games of Maelstrom (and about 26 total who have played or are currently playing about 16 games), these champion systems seem to work fine.  But years from now, when a new player starts, they will have no chance, for years, or ever, to play in a championship.

How about a score (podium point) ratio of games played?  For instance, brekk has 5 points as AN and 3 as AM out of a total of only 4 games played (completed).  This is an impressive 2 points per game.

Dupont, on the other hand (I'm gonna bust his balls a bit because I know him from the old days  Angel  Has played all 10 of the completed maelstrom games and scored only 5 points. That's a ratio of .5.  In other words he is just an absolutely terrible player. Big Grin   (I would have picked on Airetar for his .16 ratio, but I don't know him so, dude you hang in there my bud, my ratio is zero and I've played dozens of games 25 years ago.)

To prevent a newb from winning one game and taking the top spot, you could have a system whereby you need "10 rated games" (or 5 maybe) to get your score.  You also need some sort of way for people who have had a boatload bad performance to catch up... perhaps by only counting the most recently completed X number of games?

I think it is cool to have people associated with the kingdom of their best performance, but I also don't think kingdoms are so different that a good player couldn't wield any one of them with at least some accuracy. (maybe AN and DE exceptions)
