Re: CF Games 2011 General Thread

I am not sure I like the scoring not accounting for the "quality" of the win. I mean if you destroy the rest of the field it should be reflected.

I like the 100 points for the winner but I think the places below should get points based on how they did compared to 1st place.

Winner lifts 500lbs, 2nd place lifts 400lbs (80% of the winner) then the winner gets 100 points 2nd gets 80 points?

Seems like it would more accurately rank everyone based on performance?

Just random thought.

I hear you Ryan. OTOH, this may tend to emphasize CF generalism. Being so incredibly good at one single event that you can simply destroy everybody won't do it.

I could see that Mike, but that is what the other events are for to even things out. I just think the quality of win should be reflected.

@Ryan
I used to agree with you but someone later on in the link posted made a good point about shorter workouts like a sprint.. check out the WFS link:
