This solution is assuming we continue to get a protein released twice, once as a handfold and again as regular.
It is intended to be a rewarding gaming solution for nearly all players.
A protein being released twice should only take a player's single best rank to apply towards the Global Rank.
Strong Handfolders- They are able to have their talents rewarded even if they prefer not to use scripts, or struggle using scripts.
Strong Scriptors- They are able to have their talents rewarded even if they prefer not to do handfold-only, or struggle with handfolding.
Power Folders (people who are good at running both releases of the protein)- In the current system, they get two ranking scores, for instance r4 and r6. That is an average combined score of r5 in global total scoring. In this proposed system they get to drop their lowest score and would get a score of r4, a small bonus for employing a broad skill set.
Casual Folders- when fitting folding into their busy schedule, they can wait for the regular protein release, and run some scripts while they go shopping or to work. When playing as a hobbyist on their laptop, they can enjoy a day of handfolding without feeling left behind if they cannot dedicate their poor computer to the high demands of script work.
Who Does not benefit?
A folder who believes that handfold only does not warrant any scoring reward simply based on methodology.
A folder who believes that scripts should not be used, or rewarded as they are not providing direct manual effort by the folder.
