Olympics suggestion
« on: November 15, 2020, 09:09:06 am »
As it is now, the system picks 6 random airports that end up in the poll for the Olympics. I think this can be done better.

How about adding an extra step in front of it, where all airlines can send in their nominations. Any city anywhere in the world can get nominated. Then instead of 6 random cities, you get the 6 most nominated cities in the poll.

The problem with that would be that you would likely get a pretty similar list that favors the major hubs every time. I do find it a little frustrating when the same cities keep showing up (Austin, Tokyo, and Berlin have all hosted it twice), but I generally like the system. All I really want would perhaps be some more realistic city choices/a bit more randomization.

Perhaps it can come with a set of rules. Let's say:

- Any city that has hosted the Olympics once cannot host it again, it's banned for life.
- Any city that ends up in the pool cannot be nominated again for the next round, but can be nominated for rounds after that.
- Airlines are not allowed to nominate the same city twice in a row, regardless if they end up in the poll or not. For each round they must nominate a different city than the previous round.
- Airlines are not allowed to nominate any city in which they have a base.

Or if you like the current randomized system better, why not make a hybrid? Let's say 4 out of the 6 poll options are from nominations and the other 2 are randomly picked by the system.
