I will share a little bit of analysis I did for my team.
Assume that at the end of autonomous, all three field elements (both switches and the scale) are controlled.
Let MS=“My switch”, the number of seconds where my alliance held my switch.
Let TS=“Their switch”, the number of seconds where my alliance held their switch.
Let SC=“Scale”, the number of seconds my alliance held the scale.
Neglect autonomous, and any power ups. Neither one changes the result of the analysis. There are 135 seconds in a match (after autonomous). At the end of the match
My score = MS + SC
Difference=My score-Their score=MS+2SC+TS-270
Now, suppose that a rules update was published after the end of the match. The scores will be calculated differently. Instead of giving 1 point for your switch, and no points for their switch, they will instead give 1/2 point for either switch. So, I get 1 point for each second I hold the scale, and 1/2 point for each second I control either switch.
The new score calculation is as follows.
My score=1/2 MS + SC +1/2 TS
Their score= 1/2(135-MS)+1/2(135-TS)+(135-SC)
Now, the difference in scores is:
Difference=MS+2SC+TS-270. which is exactly the same as in the actual scoring system.
In other words, although the number of points is different in the two scoring systems, the margin of victory is identical. So, although it looks pretty complicated and factoring my switch is different than theirs, and the same points are available for your own switch and the scale, that’s really smoke and mirrors. You can think about it as if each switch is worth 1/2 point per second, and the scale is worth 1 point per second.
