Don't misunderstand me - there is nothing wrong with the Friend League. The problem is Friend League's short term turn-around, which PGC would have trouble keeping up with, and PGC's Friend League page, which does not do what it says it does.
For instance, if I look at my Statistics > Overview > Friend League (https://project-gc.com/Statistics/FriendLeague) it says my current score is 2835 points, which is false, as it is actually 86. It has not been in that order of magnitude since the Planetary Pursuit campaign. Yes, I understand why PGC shows it as 2835, but the page highlights comparing my current score with others, which it fails to do.
It would be great if the PGC page could do what it says it does, but I don't think that will ever be possible, due to the short period of the Friend league - points are reset every week, coupled with the errors as described on the page. So the fix is to replace the PGC page with one that describes what it actually can do: remove the idea that PGC is looking at the Friend League and replace it with Friend League campaigns or Friend League promotions, eg insert the words in red:

Ever wondered how you are doing more globally in the current Friend League campaign? We have the answer for you. Either look at the world top list or filter it down on country level to see how you are doing.

I am almost inclined to log this as a bug - the page does not do what it says it does. But a minor bit of work would fix it, more of an enhancement request than a bug :-)
