Don't get me wrong, congratulations to Global Express for winning the alliance score for the first time - but a comparing look at the highest scoring airline tab reveals how screwed up the scoring system is.

I think it just proves that you guys weren't as organized as you should have been. High cumulative score can be achieved with any well organized Alliances

It's intransparent and has nothing to do with good organization. Strike warnings cost points and there is no way to find the perpetrator, just to name one example.

Then why others Alliance don't have the strike issue that cost points? It's not about finding the one who causes strikes, it's about preventing one to have strikes by helping out; giving warning message, etc... and we have excellent cooperation

Strike warnings also come with a more risky way of management. I'm pretty sure Elite has "at the limit" management practices to optimize income. I gives them the biggest income. It comes with a price. That's a matter of choice. I was smaller, had less risky business practices, ant therefore I did cost no warning to my (small) alliance.

And how on earth are we supposed to see who is going to have a strike? We can only see a strike once it happens, and then it's too late. We need a feature that clearly displays any point changing event in the alliance management dashboard, and as long as we don't have that you really can't attribute your winning to good management. Again, congratulations but please stop alluding that it was achieved through superior organization.

I will, if you stop saying it was achieved because the system is broken. I think just a simple Congratulation is enough, why need to blame reasons?

So you're saying your so call 10 straight wins were on this broken system, and they should be demerited/voided? Yeah, I'd agree with that

Nope, the system was "tweaked" about a year ago when the airline scoring was introduced. Before, whether you agreed with the scoring or not, it was cut and dry and easily trackable (except the BK warning and missed check point deductions). Now there is no rhyme or reason to the alliance scoring. Easily trackable scoring means managers can manage and guide their alliance to the top of the scoreboard. The current system is like throwing a dart at a dart board. If you are lucky, you'll hit something and score some points.

Just stating facts, nothing more. All I want is a return to transparent scoring.

Fully agree with the fact that a transparent scoring interface provides "coaches" how to manage their team.
But still, this is how it works now, and you didn't end first place. I believe that happened before and the same crying bulls*** occurred... so at your end nothing changed.

Enjoy easter!  :-[

All alliances have equal footing on cumulative scores, and big alliances have more advantages in variable scores thanks to their mega airlines

Easily trackable scoring means managers can manage and guide their alliance to the top of the scoreboard. The current system is like throwing a dart at a dart board. If you are lucky, you'll hit something and score some points.

Everyone is under the same rules, so why yours have so less cumulative score than the other 2 leaders? Doesn't it mean you overlook something crucial? Or did you suffer x2 points deducted for each warning/violation/strike as comparing to others?

And when trackable scoring is no longer available, but other alliances managed to guide/organize their members well; and you don't think their achievement is something?

You knew just as little as we did how individual members impacted your score. You won by plain chance, get to grips with that fact.

What we need is a detailed log of every point contribution or malus of any individual member airline in the alliance management screen and a 100% transparent scoring routine. Only then can you say that you won by superior management.
I don't begrudge you your victory, but it's really beyond me how you can say it was due to better management when there is nothing to manage. You won because the sum of your players performed better on a set of arbitrary metrics that can't effectively be steered by management and have very little do to with how well one runs his airline.

If you just came to terms with that, we could all be happy for your victory and work on a transparent scoring mechanism that would be truly manageable.

Even though I love to troll you guys, I do agree on this with you and it makes sense to change it.

Yes this would be a good feature to have. Would take away the element of mystery for alliance management.

Hopefully trolling is part of the bonus alliance points calculation!  :P
