Grading and Score
Grades: SS - S - A - B - C - D - E
The formula for calculating the score for a combo is a bit complicated. The only person who cares about this formula is the crazy fool writing this FAQ. For all others, the point value for any step in a combo depends on two factors:

  • Perfects are worth 3 times as much as Greats.
  • The point value for a step increases every time the combo increases by 4.

For those curious about the exact formula for the score of a combo...

Let [x] denote the greatest integer function (i.e., where [x] is the greatest integer less than or equal to x). Then, the point value for the nth step in a combo is:

S(n) = G(n) if the nth step is a Great, or P(n) if the nth step is a Perfect;
G(n) = 100 ([n/4]^2 + 1);
P(n) = 3G(n);

Therefore, the total point value for a combo is the summation of S(n) from 1 to n, where n is the number of steps in the combo. This formula is derived from the table of point values in the Info section at DDR Stompin' Ground.
