That’s an interesting trick about a ghost player and in general nice idea to give players an opportunity of getting a title regardless tafl variant they prefer. Simultaneously it’s not very easy to get, a player has to be permanently involved in playing games for a long time. It could be an interesting sporting quest, many players would love to get such titles, I think.

About the FM/CM idea. A counting through all relevant tournaments (excluding strange variants like Unst etc.) since 2011 gives these names:

FM
Casshern 5 tournaments, rating 2108, 874 games
Adam 3 tournaments, rating 1809, 689 games
Crust 3 tournaments, rating 1848, 3037 games
From the counting, Casshern, Adam and Crust qualify for Federation Masters.

CM
Crust 16 tournaments (GM)
Casshern 12 tournaments (GM)
Altti 14 tournaments (IM)
Duhawk93 10 tournaments, rating 1569, 897 games
Adam 10 tournaments (GM)
Hagbard 10 tournaments, rating 1642, 2737 games
Animals 9 tournaments, rating 1675, 474 games
Xerxes 7 tournaments, rating 1407, 1115 games
Docbullen 6 tournaments, rating 1515, 1136 games
Ded Fomich 5 tournaments, rating 1868, 473 games
Khan Asparukh 5 tournaments, rating 1828, 178 games
Sqaree 5 tournaments, rating 1702, 309 games
Epoc 5 tournaments, rating 1467, 417 games
Nath 4 tournaments (GM)
Arne64 4 tournaments, rating 1697, 495 games
Odinhimself 4 tournaments, (IM)
Klimm 3 tournaments, rating 1573, 207 games
Agmundr 3 tournaments, rating 1557, 1081 games
Sigurd 3 tournaments, rating 1811, 103 games

Some players on the CM list qualified in more than 3 tournaments, and have ratings much more than 1600. However, they played less than 500 games.
If the surplus tournaments and rating are changed into games fx. this way:
1 surplus tournament = 20 games
100 surplus rating = 20 games
100 surplus games = 20 rating
then
Animals would be credited for 474 + 6 * 20 = 594 games
Ded Fomich credited for 473 + 2 * 20 + 2 * 20 = 543 games
Epoc for 417 + 2 * 20 = 457 games
Khan Asparukh for 178 + 2 * 20 + 2 * 20 = 258 games
Arne64 for 495 + 20 = 515 games
Sqaree for 295 + 20 + 20 = 335 games
Sigurd for 103 + 2 * 20 = 143 games
and Xerxes would be credited for rating 1407 + 6 * 20 = 1527
And players qualifying for Candidate Master would be: Duhawk93, Hagbard, Animals, Ded Fomich, Arne64, Docbullen, Agmundr and Xerxes.
(GM and IM players are skipped here, since GM/IM is more than CM).

Players who qualified for 2 tournaments: Plantagenet, Edmond-dantes, Bigwurm91 and Chuck ward.
