Scoring Rule

In the judging section of Quest Match, each contestant is given original scores in 0-5 from every judge. Total score of not less than the top 40% of the players admitted to Exhibition Match.

In the judging section of Exhibition Match, each contestant is given original scores in 0-100 from every judge. Then the final score is calculated by the algorithm:

(1) Normalize scores of each judge.

For some judge, the maximum score from the judge is Smax, and the minimum is Smin. Normalized score S' is calculated by original score S:


(2) Calculate the average score with half weight of the best and the least score cut down. (See descriptions below)

For some chart, the normalized scores are sorted to a list Si, with i between [1,n]. The score to be cut down (by standards of chart format) is Mis. Final score Sum of the chart is calculated:


The Kuromaku also gives scores, for replacing scores of participated judges from themselves: If the judge gets rank X from the Kuromaku, rank-X-score from the judge itself is used for a replacement.

In the exhibition match, every judge would give the chart a score on a 10-point scale. The total mark of the judges would be your final score.
