So as you guys probably know Bruno Grandi has proposed a new scoring system which he described as “dividing the difficulty score by two to increase the importance of the E score.”(this is per The All Around)

Although he did not lay out specific details, presumably the 10 for execution would remain and the half of the difficulty score would be added. 

Just to see how this would work, following this system, I calculated the results that would have occurred in the vault final for the women at the 2014 Worlds.  Here are the results under the “new” code (wherein not too much changed, except Simone beat Hong Un Jong and Guilia beat Claudia):

*Feel free to check and correct any mistakes!
