Minimum threshold to become head of an existing faction

Currently viewing this thread:

Yesterday I joined the ranks of folks elected to the monarchy after having joined a kingdom, thus increasing the rate of death for my liege. One battle which Caladog joined was all it took. I didn’t even see him die.

To my surprise, the first of three options for the next King was me! Me, fiefless, clan tier 2 or 3, not worth all that much (I think I’d banked 25,000 at the time). The support was universal. Guess I’d impressed them greatly with being knocked out in tournaments so often. If it was because I’d married Corein or led the battle that Caladog had fallen in that’d make sense. Maybe the vassals of the realm wanted someone they thought they could push around after Caladog. But not wanting that hassle upon me yet, I quickly abdicated.

Is there a minimum that’s needed to become the leader? Feels off that I should become king so early on without pulling from sword from a rock or murdering my liege during a hunt while bringing riches to rival lords. If there’s not a minimum, is there appetite to have one (like clan tier 4 or a special quest that unlocks the ability to be chosen as king)? Or do folks want it to happen that easily?

Think it's a bit unpolished atm since others have mentioned it aswell.
Something with the AI's decisionmaking is for sure wack regarding this.
 
They should really implement something such as this:

Rhagaea is engaged in a civil war to preserve her dynasty and the system of hereditary monarchy, yet if I join the Southern Empire and not even marry any of her relatives I'll probably be elected Emperor when she dies.

The types of succession styles outlined in that mod feel like just the thing to fix what I encountered. Glad to see it, and I hope something like it gets adopted. Feels like the mechanism could sit/live under kingdom policies in the current UI.
