Re: A much better scoring system for the Games.

The "curve" scoring system is the exact system that Jeff Vale and I talked about a couple months ago. It allows for the most accurate and fair scoring system, and it can be used in a max effort wod, time based wod, work based wod or pretty much any other domain or modality. Making it almost impossible for people to come back on the day three because of cuts is really unfair. Another huge disadvantage to the current scoring system is how ties work. It 20 people tie on a wod on day one then the person right behind them gets a huge point penalty even though their performance may have been only 1 rep less. Gotta use percentages of 100% to be fair.
