If the twosome wins the hole - they earn 3 points each
If the wolf ties with the twosome - the wolf earns 4 points and the twosome earns 1 point each
What do you think of this scoring system? Does it seem to make sense? Can it work?
I don't know if it's bad form to quote and reply to your own post, but since there's no way to edit posts...
The more I look at this scoring system, the less sense it makes. I can sort of understand giving a couple extra points to the lone wolf for a tie, considering he is at a disadvantage by playing solo, but why give him 4 and the others 1 each? Why not just give only the wolf 3 for a tie? That would be the exact same thing.
One of the producers mentioned the scoring being confusing on Big Break Atlantis. He said the 4-1-1 scoring for a tie confused the girls, and in hindsight, they should have just awarded all 3 of the girls 2 points each for a tie? But that makes just as little sense, as giving all 3 players 2 points, is the exact same as awarding no points. I'm not sure this scoring system makes any sense at all.
