WBAS Scoring Poll
« on: September 19, 2017, 05:34:26 PM »
Hi Folks,

I'd like to know how many of you would like to make Total Time the official WBAS Scoring at EOT.  Please start another thread for discussion and just stick to whether you'd like that or not.

I've had an ear full of comments against the current WBAS scoring method.

Thanks,

Allie

PS I vote for Total Time scoring.

Stage Points. It will keep us one step further away from being cowboy with a 1911.

I would like to have a scoring system that you can tell the total time and what was missed or P'ed or safety violation. So I guess I would like Total time with details.

No strong preference, but Stage Points with the details left out is not the way to show results.  Stage points with the details included, would be fine by me.

As we drive WB stages to be similar round counts, as Cowboy did over several years (in order to make multiple posses run smoothly at larger matches), the amount of difference in results between SP and TT becomes pretty small.
Good luck, GJ

Total Time.

I've never been able to understand how the stage point transformation of scores does anything other than obscure results.  At one point, I was open to the idea of trying to understand stage points.  But that train has left my station.  Not only do stage points make match results opaque, they're one more thing in Wild Bunch that is off-putting to new and potential participants.

Total Time  X2

Or fix the stage points so that it actually works ,To have to admit that the scoring system used at the National and World championships for the last TWO YEARS is flawed and had to be reworked is ludicrous . Either fix it or get rid of it .
Personally I think this is the biggest barrier to participation.

Stage Points.   Total time simply encourages youthful, adolescent, reckless abandon.  We should be responsible adults.  Matches should ONLY be scored based on the overall finish, with category placements based on overall. 

Total time scoring is a falsehood perpetuated by a weak-willed majority, that want their participation trophy regardless of skill or actual performance.  Any event where raw speed outweighs the ability to hit targets has denigrated into less of a shooting contest and more of a "trigger drag race."

A contest where 4 people that shoot 12, fast, clean stages can be beat by someone that has misses, is no longer a contest of shooting skill.  Let's not become "cowboy with a 1911" all over again.
No, I ain't ready, but let's do it anyway!
