Hi, I thought about this potential problem some days ago and Sam noticed it turned real in his other league.
The situation is pretty easy : The old design in percentages was converted into design points to help us finish our started season (ex : 100% gave 350 design points). But transition seasons are now finishing and we are now in the situation where old teams not in a league (who kept their converted points) join new seasons league and face teams with new design system (3-7 points per stat at the start in Australia) causing this kind or results :
Malaysia, The F1 World.
I think the easier way to correct it is to put with the correct amount of points when a team joins a league. Hope you understand the problem as this is potentially never ending (an old team can join a league mid 2017 with 350 design points).
