It’s easy to look up district point totals, but what does that mean in terms of qualifying for the district championship? Here’s a stab at projecting every district championship, and worlds qualification for district teams.
How does the remaining # of event effect the PDCMP? There are quite a few of good teams that still have 1 more event to go. The teams that are on the edge are the ones that probably have more changes to get knock out of the DCMP.
It effects the number of points that they’re expected to have to qualify for the district championship. This can have a pretty dramatic effect. So for example:
Scenario 1: The cutoff for the DCMP is estimated to be between 58-62 points. Team A has earned a total of 57 points and has no more counting events to play. They won’t make the cutoff (unless there are declines) and P(DCMP) will be set to 0.
Scenario 2: Same except the team has one more event to play. In this case, the team has to earn somewhere between 1 and 5 points at their next event to qualify. Because earning that many points is quite likely, the P(DCMP) will be high.
I’m not quite sure what you mean, but if you mean increasing the value of points earned at DCMP events then the answer is yes. This is why the estimates for the point cutoffs for CMP are typically like 2.5x as high as the cutoff for the district championship events rather than just 50% higher.
And I’m not quite sure how a typical number of points to make the championship could be anything other than in the triple digits without rule changes.
