I Just thought I would share with you a handicap system we are starting up in my gaming group. It works like this.
Each time you play against an opponent you record the result, and for every defeat you suffer you gain a 5% army size bonus next time you play that opponent. For every victory you score you reduce your bonus by 5% to a minimum of zero. That's it.
The idea is you end up with as near a 50% win ratio as possible with the difference in ability countered by the handicap. All it needs is a little booklet kept with your magic deck and a pen.
Thoughts? Any potential problems? We realise that using different armies is one, as a player might be better with one army than another. However in our group most players end up at a similar level whichever army they take and recording seperate results for different armies used is impractical as the combinations are just too many.
