Leveling the Playing Field
The Tactical Games are based on the concept that in order to be successful in combat you must be fast AND accurate while under physical and mental duress. We attempt to replicate some facet of combat in every stage in our events. The exercise used to elevate heart rate and the skill sets paired up with the exercise chosen will replicate something we experienced in combat.
Scoring is based on speed and accuracy. A Battle or heat will start, and the athletes will be on a timer. Their time stops when they complete the Battle or cross the finish line. The targets will be scored in a way that translates to time.
If a person misses a target, it results in a penalty and time is added to the score. For example, if a person completed a Battle in 14 minutes but missed five shots…at 10 seconds per shot missed, 50 seconds would be added to their overall time for an adjusted score of 14:50. The aggregate time becomes their total time. After all the events are completed, the top three competitors with the lowest time aggregate are the winners in their category. At times, the penalty for a miss will be greater or less depending on the criticality of the shot.
FFI’s. FFI’s are Failure to Follow Instructions. If competitors are given specific instructions for a particular Battle, and they fail to execute according to the instructions, they will incur a time penalty added to their score.
