Yes the 75/25-system should work very well. But honestly the results would probably not differ that much from the purely fixed system anyway.

I don't really understand the logic for this either. You get more points if you take part in a popular round...why?

Okay, that makes four of us so far (LinesMachine, lifeschool, you and I).

League points. There are two suggestions for this, one by lifeschool and one by Harry. Everyone would get the same amount of bonus points - based on number of participants for a round. Personally I don't see the necessity for this but maybe some people would feel better when they get 22 instead of 2 points (while the winner gets 40 instead of 20). It'd destroy some of our statistics though.

That was Biscuit's idea. Every round would be one full month now meaning you'd have about 15 days per game. That's plenty in my opinion. I still think the current format is equally good.

Adding up the league points would eliminate the problem that someone could drag his team's average down by participating. The more play the better for each team! I think this would be a good change.
