Alright, as a relative newbie to DCI...I had some questions about the scoring. I understand the captions etc, but my question is more of an East vs. Midwest vs. West interrogative. 

So the Blue Devils, SCV And Mandarins etc have been hitting the highest marks competng out West. Those scores have been in the upper 60s to mid 70’s. 

Out East, it’s been the Bloo coats, Carolina Crown, Boston Crusaders, Cadets setting the highest scores.. Those score are typically 3-4 pts higher than the West. Bloo popped 80 pts on 6/2/18

In the Midwest the Cavaliers hit a mid 70 score and Phantom Reg was just below that. 

So are these scores all apples to apples or do we all have to wait for a Regional to get a good benchmark for the top teams and surging competitors? 

 

 

 

 

You’re actually right on both counts. Ideally, this is judged on a “corps A achieved at this much of a spread higher or lower than corps b” system. So, with this mind, what happens on the west coast is independent of what happens on the east coast, or whatever region you choose to use. From a fan’s standpoint, the practical use doesn’t matter until they all meet at a large regional. From a corps’ standpoint, the most useful information comes from both the tape from the judges and the one on one feedback.

One thing to watch is judges and trends. It becomes quite clear right about now that judges are talking to each other, watching shows they haven’t yet judged, and especially watching corps that haven’t seen yet. Certain judges will begin to “make statements” within the community of judges as to what they think the relative scoring glide path will be as far as they see it. There are certain judges who will not be moved by GE biases one way or the other, and certain judges who will essentially lead the pack from now till Indy.

Some judges tend to value musical proficiency over all. Some value GE over all. That’s why Regionals matter. And that’s one reason Nashville has become such a bellwether show, as it features most of the elite corps one night before Atlanta.
