Arrow Revisiting Fractals

I noticed that the searchable topics on this particular subject is limited. Has anyone else used it as a way of sorting out contenders; aside from sorting 3+ E or EP types? Is there hidden use beyond the E and EP realm?

I included Fractals on the BL/BL screen for compatibility with the same screen on the old Validator. I recall, for Doc Sartin, Fractals was always an experiment which I think produced marginal value at the price of extra complication (i.e more ratings to offer differing opinions). If I recall, he folded the Fractals experiment into V/DC, which is a pretty good rating.

I myself have no advice to offer re Fractals, besides suggesting you ignore it. To the extent that the Rx screen is an evolution of the BL/BL Summary screen, you will notice that I omitted it.

If you really want to, you could model the effect of Frl readouts (e.g. Early) on Early pace pressure (e.g. in combination with the sum of Quirin Speed Points, or count of Es and EPs) and find out more about how useful it actually is.

Good luck!

I always use fractals
The two with the lowest total numbers are the best bets when tied otherwise.
