The new scoring for GCER is a great idea. I believe the matches are going to be a lot more exciting in the aspect of robots having new strategies that have not been seen before. With the control of Botguy not the main focus anymore, a lot of teams might not even go for him and focus on just scoring objects.

I think what mcsoccer11 is saying is that before in seeding it was killer that you score botguy because he would have a much higher impact on your score. Now with the multiplier lower teams can devote atention that they might have spent on botguy on scoring other things. For those teams who optemized grabing botguy this could be a disadvantage.
