I think what happened at worlds had to include their confidence not being too great because of almost winning euros but shot after hearing so much that they had the worst program ever done! That maybe that played into their euros loss and they lost all confidence and wanted the season to be over! What team since cop has almost won a major event like euros and then comes in 16th place in TES Out of 20 in the worlds? Their levels were remarkably consistent with none of the frequent level ones that would appear all the time in their free dances in 2010 and 2011. I think it may have been 2011 NHK they won the SD and then barely medaled after the free dance? So that is what I meant - that's way bigger than going down two points in base value!! They kept the quads in 2012! Their total collapse at worlds with a program considered the worst of all time and that they skipped the Wtt rather than do again showed how the confidence was shattered! So that's why I am surprised they didn't change coaches or even if that's not possible because of nikolai and Elena being involved then just Nikita giving up!
