Like 2.5 stars out of 5 should be an average pass mark.
See that's interesting to me, as I have always looked at it as giving 3/5 would be an average film, simply because it's a 5 point rating system so in my mind it looks like this:
1 - well below expectations
2 - below expectation
3 - meets expectations
4 - exceeds expectations
5 - far exceeds expectations
I'm surprised people would think of 2.5 for the middle ground (numerically I get it's a 50% score for sure, but in terms of stars it seems weird).
I had read the rationale for it as well, but still wasn't a fan TBH I think it ends up with people underrating things a little because 4/7 and 5/7 are both not quite the 3/5 they probably want to give...
I'd like an out pass to be created if you hit the same genre for the 'x'th time.
I think this would be very fair, as the competition goes on for longer, statistically this will happen to more teams too I guess. It's great knowing there have been over 100 different genres in the history of the competition, but that only makes it even more annoying if you happen to have had the same one 3 times, haha. Luckilly I haven't, but if you kept getting given one and especially if it was one of the more 'tropey' genres, like "alien", that are way more restrictive if you follow them, or require you to subvert them to open your options up, it could get old pretty quickly.
I suppose apart from things like Buddy it's more often open-ended genres that get repeated like time travel and musical etc. But yeah, I would support this for 4+ times if swapped at launch.
