Yes, there are different playing styles. But the amount of work to earn your points must be comparible to any other category contributions. Making cristals is very easy done. The only restriction is the time that limits the quantity.

And because this is a new phenomenon some are playing it to the extreme in a category that did not grow very fast, because it wasn't fully developed. So big scores will have big influences in the beginning. But I think the effect was multiplied by the poorly balanced allocation of points.

The idea of Hucbold isn't that bad, but you could use an overall percentage to get the overall standings. That way you can give every category the same weighting and you can calculate the corresponding points.

I completely agree.

Yes, creating crystals is easy. Getting a lot of magic points with it is quite hard. Before crystals people could use spells with added mana to get Magic points which is A LOT easier as you can get millions of magic points with 4 clicks - with crystals you have to create thousands of crystals to get a similar amount.

Looking at other categories there are a lot of ways to get "easy" points. Trading and Hunting is way easier. Quests, Diplo and Building are kind of comparable to Crystals in my opinion. And well, tech / defense is limited by other factors (although you could probably get defense points quite easy too - need to do some tests some day).

With quests you have to spend a long time doing quests every day for a few minutes. With Crystals you (probably) have to spend a similar amount of time but you can do it in a few days if you want to.

My Point: Making points with crystals is ok and not easy or broken, the amount of points you get is currently too high (half that amound would probably be fine).

Very good - that's exactly equivalent to my suggestion!
