Couldn't agree with you more. To me and im sure most players the BP ranking is more important than the points ranking. Going against the highest BP alliance will scare people, going against the alliance with the most points will make them salivate at the juicy cities to take.To be honest the point that will put a lot of good players off is that your goal is to have the best points average. That implies that you'll focus more on simming than on being aggressive, which won't last with your currently low numbers because you will be eaten very quickly.
Best of luck with this though.
