Exactly, that's my biggest issue with the way PCS are judged right now. In 6.0 came the correct concept that multiple glaring errors hurt the overall affect of the problem. Another issue I have with the system, is while intricate choregraphy should be rewarded. Something that people need to consider is the fact that not every skater has access to a Lori Nichol. Great choregraphers actually cost money.. And you could have a skater who is perfectly capable of harder choregraphy, but they at this point can't afford it. However, this skater could still be a really great skater with amazing jumps, and someone who can present and perform well to the audience.Again, to go along with the earlier discussion, technical imprecision takes its toll on artistry. If we went to a ballet and the dancers lacked the technique to transmit the choreography to the stage (or if they fell down trying), we would not leave the theater marvelling at the wonderful work of the choreographer.
If intricate choregraphy becomes more important than the actual performance, or the execution of the elements, that's going to put skaters from smaller countries, at even more of a disadvantage. Whereas if execution and performance matter more than perhaps said skaters, could eventually win enough competitions to where they could afford a better choregrapher. That's something for people to think about in this rush to make singles skating into ice dancing.
