    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:
    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%.
