    This points break down is different than last year. Are you purposefully missing the daily white, polka dot and team points?

  2. Ben Aroundo, ON, Canada says:

    Should be easier to tweak your team. How about a button on the HOME PAGE getting us directly to our team for points score or as of tomorrow making last minute changes.

  3. JFP, Alberta, Canada says:

    Still missing combative and team stage points from last year.

    Hope you guys developed a new algorithm to account for the changes.
