The difference with strategy here is that countries don't have as large of a pool of athletes to choose from as say swimming. The US swim team has everyone to choose from because they are all relatively tight with each other's times. And they have different strokes/distance they specialize in that their greatness incomparable (compared to FS' wholesome nature). A key difference with swimming is as the relays are a category in itself, some swimmers just swim the relays with no individual events. Which is not prohibited in FS. Also, the qualifiers with swimming simply qualifies the team into the finals and the slate is clean for the final swimmers.
The SP "qualifiers" in FS make a difference. If a country has a bad SP, that's it. The deficit to make up for is sometimes just too large. The difference between a country's number 1 and 2 skaters are generally way way off by like 30pts so there's not much leeway there to switch. They would have to take the gymnastics strategy with little to no choice in strategy and just go with the better one for both.
I would have to say most of the strategies will be predictable for most countries' disciplines but it'll still be interesting to see if the popular vote is correct. There's no more than 2 handfuls of countries that are blessed with skaters that are on each other's back with points and abilities and are within top 5 of their discipline. Canada's pairs, Russia's pairs & dance, Japan's men, US men, Japan's ladies, I guess France's men ....although Flo would be the clear winner for consistency over Brian I would think. I think these are the only ones where strategy would make a difference.
