Unfortunately I don't think most high rankers run into the limit frequently so I don't think it would change anything. (4000/800)*20=1000 and there are not that many people over 4000 points. So you would have to be playing a cook to hit the max, all cadets would still be fair game as you already said.
The reason it can't be removed: As the winners points approach zero, the points gained approach infinity.
Example: A person dumps their points to reach the lower limit of 1 (yes its illegal but still possible). Then wins a game against 7 people each of whom have 2000 points (common enough)
(2000*7/1)*20 = 280,000 points for the winner
With no cap on point gains, the best way to get to the top is to first go to the bottom. In fact, that is the exact reason the point cap was first implemented, and luckily it was established before the system was ever abused.
I just don't get one thing. If a player point dumps in order to get to 1 point, and start, let's say, 10 games with captain + players, he/she will take more than 100 points only to the first person he/she beats. As far as I know, there's no way you could win more than one game at the same exact time. So it would be 2000/1*20=40,000 points, which is still absurd, but a lot less than 280 000.
sully's example involved an 8 player game, so in that scenario, the 1 point cook would gain 40k points for each
: 40,000 points times 7 opponents = 280,000 points
I think we'd need a new rank
To achieve balance, first you must grow.
To grow, first you must learn.
To learn, first you must listen.
To listen, first you must shut the hell up.
