my logic was by baseing it on top 10 scores the rankings would have some relative credability from the start. The vast majority of sports rankings are not all started from the same position they are calculated in some way that best reflects their opening ranking - they then move up and down based on their performance against other teams. If the pts transfer methodology is solid then very quickly any initial over estimation or under estimation of rankings/score would be corrected.
Personally I would no major issue with everyone starting at the same pt eg 1000 as per our individual scoreboard but that does in some ways miss out on putting an inital valueof the clan's strength
the other down side of all clans starting with the same pts is one clan with high rankers could target the weakest clans and build up a false lead at the top of the clans scoreboard as in reality they had avoided the other high ranked competitive clans.
It would also mean that ne clans would slot into their appropriate place from the start and not be initally ranked two high or too low.
Unlike the main scoreboard where you have large numbers playing - there are fewer than 30 competitive clans so the system should reflect these small numbers.
Don't now why people on here don't like being cooks, remember under siege: A former SEAL, now cook, is the only person who can stop a gang of terrorists when they sieze control of a US Navy battleship.
