You never had to provide reasoning for your vote. It is preferred but just putting a number is and always has been acceptable.

This is correct. You DO have to decide which one is better. It might be hard to decide sometimes, but considering how much easier this is than deciding between a 7 and an 8, I think this'll work itself out in time. Instead of having 11n options, you now have n-1 options for the entire division. This makes the decision tree a lot simpler when voting.

It doesn't, and it never has. The leaderboards have always been a terrible comparison of quality because of the reasons I outlined above. Different voters have different opinions of what the numbers mean, and often equivalently decent maps end up with an average 1-2 apart simply because different people voted in the contest. I've said time and time again that you're using numbers that were never meant for statistical purposes and making them into statistics, generating a meaningless table.

I am actually glad this removes the leaderboard, as that was another unfair part of the OLDC system that's needed to be removed for a long time.
