Mayor System - Algorithm to determine seems broken
At the start of Season 2 (Wednesday 29th in New Zealand), I made an effort on 10 settlements to be the top contributor and therefore mayor. I focused on 6 settlements in Dunedin (on the way to/from the car and walkable at lunchtime) and 4 in Mosgiel where I live.
Between Wednesday and Friday I contributed 196 VP points to the wolves score and grew each of these settlements from stage one to stage three, added all the building plots and all the buildings. On Sunday morning I was disappointed when I woke up and didn't have any notifications - later learning that no one had received any.
On Sunday and Monday I checked out these settlements and found I was mayor on none of them; there had been a small amount of growth on a few but nothing like the average of 20VP points I had added. What concerned me the most is that on several settlements, the bears were the mayor yet their settlement had 0 VP.
With the how determined as "the Mayor is a player who contributes the most to a Settlement within a given calendar week" (https://community.catanworldexplorers.com/discussion/128/mayor), it seems bizarre that a settlement with 39 VP points on the red side vs 0 on the blue side, can have a blue mayor.
This is probably what will make me take a break from the game - with no "reward" for actions, why bother building up a settlement?
