I was watching “World On A String”. Amazing yoyo documentary sold on this website. I really recommend it. In the documentary they were saying that they are still trying to perfect the judging system. Players were questioning it and calling it flawed. Do you guys think it’s fair? The documentary showed that it changes peoples styles to try and get the points. It should be judged in a way where a player doesn’t feels like they should CHANGE their style or whatever.
Jensen 2010 to 2011 is a great example.
I’m sure he didn’t get one point for having it just one throw.
It doesn’t seem right? A judging system shouldn’t make people have to play different to try and hit more strings or go faster to get more points. There must be something better? They explained how the “Asian Style” is more geared towards getting points and impressing judges while “American Style” was to make up creative stuff.
Maybe a voting system? Or kind of like when they hold up those 1-10 signs. The players can vote for who the judges should be. Make it like a democracy… lol. Like instead of counting string hits and clicking maybe the judges will give a certain amount of clicks for something they personally liked and thought took creativity and skill…and executed well…Instead of making it more “technically scored” which it seems to be… Just a thought. I figured there must be some controversy about it since they had a whole segment on it in the film. What do you guys think?
