The issue with this is that the nationals isn't dependent on this years performance but rather last years, that's how slots are awarded.
In a sport that I bet 90% of the people shooting it are weekend warriors I see this as being impossible. Requiring people to travel to X number of match is asking a lot of most people. Wisconsin does a points series like this... very few people can make all the matches.
Totally valid for most-but the guys winning a national championship aren't those weekend warriors. It wouldn't help someone trying to be the "A Class Champ," but a points series that determined the National champ over 6-10 matches over 4 to 6 months would be cool to follow in my opinion. To me it would add prestige to what the top guys are doing as well.
If I were in charge it'd might look something like this:
4x matches in the Eastern region
4x matches in the Western region
Open, Limited, and Production Champions determined by points chase over all 8 rounds. 1st-25 points, 2nd-22 points, 3rd-20 points, 4th-19 etc...
Limited 10, Carry Optics and Single Stack are now regional championships determined over their 4 perspective rounds.
Each round does it's own payouts/prizes etc just like LVL II/III matches now, except there is a points race to a national/regional champ.
Top 10 (by national/regional points) in each division shoot together (super squads) on Saturday afternoons of these 8 matches. They are the only guys (gals) shooting at this time. These guys should be able to get through the match in one session. Amateurs have an easy way to watch all the best shooters in their division by watching these super squads. Everyone else shoots Friday, Saturday morning and Sunday.
-More exposure for sponsored shooters, they're shooting the pro match in one session, and everyone else is watching
-At about 12 stages per match, the national champ is decided over somewhere in the neighborhood of 100 stages.
-No home court advantage.
-Amateurs/fans get to see all the top pros, they will be around in 8 matches spread around throughout the country every year, watching the best becomes more accessible.
-Lim 10 becomes relevant as a feeder series for limited.
