Eliminate Awards, should they be tweaked? v1.1 Suggestion

Looking at the "Revered" and "Ultimate" Awards, do you agree that they should make it a little easier to get these?
I'm a real Plus+ Enthusiast, I'm currently World Number 5 in overall Plus Points.
These are worth together 700 Points, and that's pretty much me up to 3rd place.
I know you can just "play" and buy a bunch of Power Cells, but it's coming up to Christmas, and I need to buy people stuff, not myself some Power Cells.
I would like to see a monthly "Skill" leaderboard, in which you can get to the top by either getting more "Highest Skill" that month, or a collection of your KDR, or other.
If you get to the top at any time, you get the award, and can't lose it.
The leaderboard is reset every month, giving all a chance to get this award. Possibly even a few different Leaderboards, such as "Monthly KDR +/-", "Monthly Highest Skill +/-", or even something like "Monthly Matches Played"?
I'm only annoyed at this as I haven't been able to play since the game came out really, due to having Exams, and loads of other stuff.
If we get a few replies, hopefully ngmoco will do something about it, opinions?
Thanks
Joseph Duffy

I think version 1.1 has already been submitted, but that's a cool idea.

why don't you get a job rather than worry about your plus+ ranking.

I'm 15, and am trying to revise for my Exams, but would like to get more Plus+ Points.

Even though v1.1 has been released, they can still add a new leaderboard/the suggestions we've given so far right? They've added/changed/removed(In the WordFu+ Case, in which they removed the Award, after I told them it didn't work) some Awards, I'm just hoping they change this :/

I don't like these awards either, but it would be wrong to remove them now that some people have the points and some don't. I gave up on pursuing these particular awards a long time ago. I think the real problem is with all of Eliminate's awards. I was pretty disappointed when I saw 3000 points that are all based on playing a lot as opposed to the skill of the player.

Yes, I agread with the second part, but I believe they only need to modify the Awards, or add an extra leaderboard, not simply remove them.
I see you're a bit of a Plus+Aholic also, so you'll see where I'm coming from :P

Yeah I just looked up your score, looks like once I finish finals this week I'll need to get some points to hold you off.
