Nice idea. With one basic error:
"in the pack everyone arranges games as they like" - Everybody will just want to play against the team above them, not below!
So, there must be a schedule for those games for each round too. Also, its unclear how to get from pack to challenger. please specify. thanks

At the start there are only Pack members, so first winner of Pack/Pack becomes Aspirant.
Once a team has moved above Pack they have to use the challenge system. This basically says that first challenge issued is played first, with some rules to manage it. It's specified in the rules document!
Also: there are no rounds of anything, just games being arranged. The order of these depends on the challenges.

As i said, while in the pack, why would i play against somebody below - i'd rather play against the one above me. How do you rule this?

If you want to play someone above the Pack, you must send them a challenge. That team will play games in the order that challenges were sent.
(Some rules also regulate when that order can be changed a bit...)

Maybe i didnt understand. So the pack has no ranking? They all just play anybody else from the pack?
So, nobody would have to get past me, everybody could ignore me?
(in a league that featured a free challenge week i experienced the system's downside).

Indeed! Within a layer everyone has the same rank.
I effect yes, you could be ignored within the Pack. But as soon as anyone becomes an Aspirant they can't ignore your challenge. So while murder/maiming teams might not get training games within the Pack, they can't be stopped from fighting to climb the hill.
