Its started and they have changed the scoring format.  Seems to be zones, tops and attempts.  Can someone explain the correlation please.

I am presuming a flash is 1top, 1 attempt

Say the person gets the ''zone' on first go but tops second then it becomes 1t2 with 1z1

Is this correct?

Hi Andrew. All they have done is change from Tops, Attempts at top, Bonuses, Attempts at bonuses to Tops, Bonuses, Attempts at top, attempts at bonus, with the proviso that a bonus is now called a zone.

I think the rationale is that it makes it more important to achieve the bonus, so will result in less people "giving up" on a bloc to save on attempts / energy.

so in your example it used to be 1t2 1b1, its now 1,1,2,1.

Thanks Ian.

So how would a flash be written.......1,1,1,1?

Looking at Shauna score so far

3t4

5z11

So that's 3top out of 4 attempts

5 zones out of 11 attempts

or as you wrote it

3,5,4,11

Correct?
