Could someone help me understand why it looks like the points from 2 seasons ago haven't been added to the current ISU world rankings totals?

For example when I calculate Natalie and Fabien's points I get this:

1. This season 840 + 720 + 400 +250 +250 = 2460
2. Last season 875 +648 +360 = 1883
3. 2 seasons ago = 551 + 252 +227 * 70% = 721

So their points by my calculations should've been 2460 + 1883 +721 = 5064. Yet their total is only 4343.

Coincidently, 4343 is the sum of their scores for this and last season.
So it looks to me as if they haven't added in the 70% from 2 seasons ago.

World Ranking is calculated per season and I assume you are talking about World Standings.

ISU Communication 1629: (http://isu.sportcentric.net/db//files/serve.php?id=1949)

ISU WORLD STANDINGS FOR SINGLE & PAIR SKATING AND ICE DANCE
2.3.1 ISU Championships and Olympic Winter Games: The best result by points per season; the best two results by points over a period not longer than 2 completed seasons plus the current season;
2.3.2 ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating and Final: The two best results by points per season; the best four results by points over a period not longer than 2 completed seasons plus the current season;

So, when someone did not skip those competitions in the three seasons usually the points from 2 seasons ago get eliminated, because they only count 70%.
