Yet another thread about x games, but this is more specific
Who here thinks there should be a regulated judjing system for tricks in the x games, like a certain amount of pionts per trick and points get added or taken away depending on grabs and style, they need to make the judging more regulated and less about how can we manipulate the riders to do the trick that we want them to do,
Just saying it should be less biased and more regulated
how would you compare tricks though, say someone does a bio 12 and someone a sw dub misty 12, which scores more

Fuck that I just want a big air jump that I wouldnt see at my home mountain.
X games officials could talk to skiiers and riders about what tricks are more technically difficult, same goes for the grabes, when new tricks get added in they could scale the system to fit acordingly, the judges would still have some leway in adding a point or two per trick basedon smoothness and how long and solid the grab is, it would just make the judjing more precise
And what if they wanted to do a new trick or grab? Would they have special events ahead of time where athletes would premiere new tricks so they could be rated prior to the competition? This sounds like a great way to limit what athletes can do in competition.

thats what they do.....judge and give points for tricks.. judges have meetings with the skiers before the contest and they tell them what they are looking for....style, grabs, amplitude, spins all that good stuff. and at that time if the skiers disagree with the judges about stuff its a great time to bring it up...
1620s and octograbs all fucking day bro
wouldn't your system do the same thing, except give riders the ability to know ahead of time exactly what tricks will win? judges are the only way to take account for uniqueness style and level of difficulty... they're also not out to please you.
that sounds exactly like the Degree of Difficulty system used in...
wait for it....
The judging system itself is fine, its also universal across the USSA/FIS/AFP systems so there is no reason to change it. It really comes down to what the judges themselves value. It is their job to allocate scores based on THEIR interpretation of the riders in the event.
So, what we really need is more variety in the actual judges, as in they all have to have different opinions on what they consider the best.
Think of it this way, imagine having 5 judges that all think that spin to win is the bee's knee's. What will the riders have to throw to win? Dubs and trips and 540 changes.
Now imagine if this was the judging lineup: Steele Spence (OG skier who has a great sense of the sport all around), Some guy with aerials/moguls background, B-dog, Pep Fujas, and T-hall. Riders would have to meet the tastes of 5 people with very different opinions on what is the best way to attack the course. So you would see more variation in what is thrown in finals, and more variation out of each individual rider.
Man I never actually read posts, I just say things in them to look cool thats all...."-mnjib
