I love it Xander! IMO maybe learn from the CAPS mistake thinking you could design out the ability to game the system and just keep the  portfolio version simple. I'd keep the same qualifications for a stock to be ratable and have something like a 10 stock minimum portfolio requirement and maybe a max. 20% allocation for any one stock in the portfolio and call it a day.

 I put out a blog recently about my master plan for CAPS and to put my recommendation in a nutshell create real world investing categories like value, growth, dividend as well as tech, medical, international etc... and get players interested and skilled in these different categories engaged and recognized. IMO this would also help to alleviate gaming the competition. You could do this in both versions of CAPS.

In any case I'm excited to see that CAPS isn't being abandoned. I love this game!
