In all actuality, "Open" class in NCBA = "Open" class in WGI.
First off congratulations on the win yesterday. Didnt get a chance to see the show but heard some good stuff.
Secondly, Open NCBA ≠ Open WGI.
If NCBA were to accurately go on WGI open sheets, no one would break 90.
The scoring across high school divisions in NCBA is comparable. If NCBA were to give Foothill/Fairfield/Benicia ext a 79 or 80...some of the novice and intermediate lines would be getting 30s and 40s. They would stop coming to competitions. Not the end result I imagine NCBA is looking for.
Are NCBA scores inflated compared to WGI? Absolutely. Just as WGI scores are inflated compared to DCI. However, the scale is also smaller, a 1 point improvement on NCBA sheets is a bigger improvement than a 1 point improvement on WGI sheets.
Hope that clears a bit of stuff up. ^^
Best of luck with the rest of the season.
