Sorry Q, didn't mean to bark at ya. No disrespect intended.
I hadn't really got the impression that anyone disagreed with Phils rules. But there is an issue with the scoring method that is in place right now for this game. For Example Someone who should be in first place(according to new rules and rounds reached) could conceivably have fewer points than than someone else reducing his leaderboard score for that game. For this competition by Phils rules we're disreguarding that and awarding that kind of player 1st place. Even if he not technically in "1st" place. But eventually there will need for concise scoring rules for this game or a new way to tabulate points to straighten out the leaderboard.
For this competition we are using # of rounds reached using points as a tiebreaker. I don't think anyones arguing that. If this is gonna be the way the game is scored from now on, forever and ever amen, then a new scoring system will need to be used so the best player is actually awarded "1st" place. Instead of the player with the highest points. Like if you reached stage 15, then "15" would be your score. There could even be ways to further divide positions thus avoiding lots of ties, like converting time per stage into bonus points.
Here is a proposed method that could work. Just an opinion. Im ONLY suggesting this for the future, NOT for this competition:
You could award 100 points for each round completed. Bonus points for lap time could work like this. 1 point for under 1:00, 2 points for under :40 and 3 points for under :20. Anyting over a minute would be zero. This would still make rounds completed the most important aspect while allowing players with the good "lap times" to break annoying ties.
