The problem is that 1 point per $1 is not good for those that play 6 max and heads up. They need to correct the distribution of their points. Right now it is horrible for heads up and moderately bad for a full 6 max game. It makes it difficult for you to climb up in stakes.
They need to change the amount of points awarded based on the number of players. This is the only way that is fair. Even if some people will complain that it is not fair.
2 players the points needs to be 3.5 pts per $1 awarded.
3 players the points needs to be about 2.33 pts per $1 awarded
4 players the points needs to be 1.75 pts per $1 awarded
5 players the points needs to be 1.4 pts per $1 awarded
6 players the points needs to be about 1.17 points per $1 awarded
7 players = 10% cash for points
8+ is better than 10% cash for points
Now I realize that some people will complain because they feel a $1 rake should be worth the same regardless of table. However, this would make it so a $1 rake is worth the same based on the number of players. In other words $700 in rake at a table is worth 10% cash for points for each player.
This is based on the current dealt system. If they switched to contributed the points would have to be 7 per $1 to equal the 10%.
