Sorry, they were in the same can of worms.

I have been saying that for years, they just like to penalize good shooters! Don't get me wrong the 12 ring saved 3-Ds back when it was added.
Like I have said the shooter with the most 10 rings should be the winner!! After all the 12 ring is in the 10 ring!!!

like i said before, when you're forced to shoot at them to win, it adds the excitement factor; and if you don't shoot 'em, most of the time,you're not going to win. they also add comeback-ability!!

I have always known why they do it. That doesn't mean I like it though.

But the first shoot I win with more bonus rings, my mindset will change a lot. I'm sure of it.

In my opinion the bonus rings add strategy to the game. Thats why I dont care for IBO. Everybody is shooting for the same spot on every target (center 10). That takes alot of the fun out of it.

I agree 100%. I just wish they could figure out a way to break a tie that actually benefits the better shooter.

MacKie.. I have often wondered the same thing...
The Archer with the least amount of 12's should indeed be the winner. Simply because he/she shot with the fewest errors.
In the case of the 14's The Archer that hit the most 14's should be the winner. Simply He/she took the most risk.
On Tie Breakers.. The Archer that Hit the first 8 or or 5 should be second to the the Archer that did not.

I like tge way it is. It means that the archer who hit more bonus ringd had to work harder to get his points. It seems it wouldbt be fair to give the win to the shooter who didnt make as many good shot or whot shot safe and hit tens give it to the guy who deserves it and went for the bonus rings and hit them.

This thread still alive ? I have thought about it some more, and it seems to me that the 12 is for 3D the same as the X for indoor. The assumption is that everyone is shooting for the X, or for 3D, the 12. You can shoot a clean 300 with only 47 Xs and win over someone with 299 and 59 Xs - who appears to be the better shooter in that case?
Not a perfect system either... maybe we should start measuring how far from the 12 each 10, 8 or 5 is ??
