Personally, I feel that team wins should hold more weight than solo wins. While solo wins are an impressive feat, these temple runners have a slight benefit of not having to worry about their partners retracing their steps. With team wins, the second player loses time retracing their partners steps. And not all temple wins had the chance at a solo win either - Lost Hornpipe, Galileo, Lost Gold Mine, Levitating Dog Leash, and Metal Beard all had temple layouts where solo wins were not possible.

Yeah this is why coming up with a set score for the Temple run on mine was extremely hard. Not every layout is the same and some teams could have a super easy path and some could have an insanely difficult path. Plus the fact that each season was different rooms made it extremely difficult to treat every team fairly so I just went with the core points. Also 100 pts for assembling the Monkey would be impossible if the artifact is in the Shrine.

There are runs that were also meant to be solo wins mostly (as long as runner enter the right starting room I guess) most notably Chandragupta. Also I feel Shaka Zulu should not receive as much points as they did because of the error allowing them so much time at the end.

So what should I do?

My suggestion would be to switch the number of points awarded for solo and teams wins. Not to say that solo wins were weaker, but most of the time they had a more favorable path than team wins. And sometimes solo wins were a result of smart temple planning like Sir Gawain, Lucky Medallion, and Sultan Saladin. But some temple runs don't have the option of solo chance either. But these are your rankings at the end of the day, so you can make a ranking system that you feel that's best.

I think some solo wins are well-earned and are a result of smart contestants making good choices in the temple. Solo wins like Sultan Saladin, Freydis, Lucky Medallion, Chandragupta, and Sultan Saladin are not undeserving in anyway. But then you have runs like Ahmed Baba, Butch Cassidy, Roland, Geronimo, and Shaka Zulu that were very generous layouts and it seems kind of unfair rewarding them with more points.
