US community it too small to do it state by state, imo. It'd be better to do it in categories, IE:
Best caller, best cav, best inf, best archer, best duelist, best overall.
If that's too specific, however, you could also do best battle player and best duelist.
At this point, the US community being so small and having 50 states, being the best player in Montana means nothing because you're probably only one out of three players who play from Montana.
