hey guys I would like to know how does contest judging works I been watching a lot of videos from worlds and other contest and im trying to figure how did some people get the place they did when I feel that should have placed a little higher like can you give examples as to what gets a player points and what might cause a person to get points deducted thanks

There is a overview of all the scoring, and here is a very well written post by Jake Elliot on the subject of technical evaluation scores:

I hope this helps.

If you look at the results for this year’s WYYC and compare them to the different styles and routines you can get an idea of the overall scoring system used. :slight_smile:

Basically:

Clean, fast, technical, variety, original = good

Sloppy, slow, simple, repetitive, unoriginal = bad
