ETA: After checking, gkelly you're right that falls does have more reduction than two-footed landing when added together.

Falls are also penalized in GOE.
There is a required GOE reduction of -3 for both falls and landing on two feet, and the final GOE must be negative.
All the other phases of the jump besides the landing would have to be good enough for +1 or better for the final GOE of the element not to be -3. That's more likely with a jump combination than with a solo jump. It's also more likely with a two-foot landing than with a fall.
But suppose that the two-footed jump and the jump with the fall both end up with the same final GOE, either -3 or -2.
Then the fall will additionally be penalized with a fall deduction.
Anyway both (falling and cheating) must be penalized, and it is.
i just thought of something--in the old days they only had--nationals, worlds, europeans, north americans during the olympic year-which totaled 5 events including olympics
instead of knocking out the fc/ euros they should knock out gp series for seniors--why '
lets see--natonals, worlds, europeans,fc 1 to 2 gp events if make it gp final, and olympics which make the total of 5 to 8 events during olympic year, knock out gp events it only makes 5 events.--just like old days and they have almost all year to practive for nationals and olympics,
to go to fc in us, they can use either placements, standing from last years natonals and/or worlds or use the summer competitions to see who goes
