As I said in my previous post, the Long Haul tournament score will be a weighted average. Your last three games will be counted thrice each, and any games beyond ten will be scored for one quarter. Again, the player need not know any of this, I just offering it for transparency, and so you can give suggestions if you don't like it.

For Example:
After 2 weeks Joe Bob has played two games and gotten 66% and 78%. His score is 72%

Some weeks later, he has a 66%, 78%, 15%, 18%. His score is:
 (66 + (78 x 3) + (15 x 3) + (18 x 3)) / 7 = 29%

After that, he steps his game up to 66%, 78%, 15%, 18%, 89%, 80%, 100% and his score climbs to:
 (66 + 78 + 15 + 18 + (89 x 3) + (80 x 3) + (100 x 3)) / 13 = 75%

Much later, his score climbs even higher with 66%, 78%, 15%, 18%, 89%, 80%, 100%, 90%, 82%, 78%, 93%, 100%, 80%, 100%, becoming:
 ((66 + 78 + 15 + 18)/4 + 89 + 80 + 100 + 90 + 82 + 78 + 93 + (100 x 3) + (80 x 3) + (100 x 3) / 17 = 88%

I'm concerned by that system that playing more will hurt you . How about a set number of games and taking your best for that total. Like 2 or even 1 a month. So more games would just give you a chance to do better. Also you said faction , as in Southern or SRA ?

Well, if you want to get a 100% on your first game, and never play again, go for it. It's not like you win anything. If you "play 3 and take the best," then more people will have a better score, meaning more ties, less competition. I play three games get 100% in two and 95% in one, then Lance shows up, gets 100% in one and 0% in the other two and we tie. I will probably institute rewards for things like playing a certain number of games, achieving certain campaign goals, etc. I just have to figure out how to implement them.

By faction I mean SRA, UMFA, PRDF, etc.
