Discussion: Scoring

Going into our fourth competition, we now have enough objective data to completely redo the scoring system and make it as objective as possible. Scoring for the first LOTR competition was done entirely by subjective judgement based on our combined estimation of move difficulty. After each competition, we review the results and adjusted scoring for the next competition; but this system was still largely subjective. Now, I want to present a formulaic approach to generate scores for moves based on the objective difficulty.
