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. Master tournaments of this year are still running, but a counting through all relevant tournaments (excluding strange variants like Unst etc.) since 2011 already 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 20 tournaments (GM)
Altti 15 tournaments (IM)
Adam 12 tournaments (GM)
Casshern 11 tournaments (GM)
Duhawk93 11 tournaments, rating 1569, 897 games
Hagbard 10 tournaments, rating 1650, 2720 games
Animals 7 tournaments, rating 1676, 462 games
Ded Fomich 5 tournaments, rating 1858, 458 games
Khan Asparukh 5 tournaments, rating 1828, 178 games
Nath 5 tournaments (GM)
Arne64 5 tournaments, rating 1697, 495 games
Docbullen 5 tournaments, rating 1514, 1136 games
Epoc 5 tournaments, rating 1467, 417 games
Odinhimself 4 tournaments, (IM)
Sqaree 4 tournaments, rating 1702, 295 games
Xerxes 4 tournaments, rating 1429, 1077 games
Agmundr 3 tournaments, rating 1567, 1033 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 462 + 4 * 20 = 542 games
Ded Fomich credited for 458 + 2 * 20 + 2 * 20 = 538 games
Epoc for 417 + 2 * 20 = 457 games
Khan Asparukh for 178 + 2 * 20 + 2 * 20 = 258 games
Arne64 for 495 + 2 * 20 = 535 games
Sqaree for 295 + 20 + 20 = 335 games
and Xerxes would be credited for rating 1429 + 20 + 5 * 20 = 1549
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).
