This' why I prefer stars personally:

★ The worst thing ever.
★★ Really bad.
★★★ Middle of the road.
★★★★ Really good.
★★★★★ The best thing ever.

No ambiguity.

If a person can't equate points out of ten with stars out of five, then they're lacking even primary school level maths.

A lot of people use 7/10 as average, when it is 5/10, if you watch ever watched the Cosmonaut Variety Show he did that until recently, people tend to vary more in what they mean with numbered scores by their own standards.

This probably comes in part anyway from the difference between percentage grading in different countries and what constitutes a pass or fail.

Did you listen to the podcast?  The ten point system is different for us in the USA. Anything less than 7/10 is garbage, if I got a 6/10 (D) on a school paper I would be grounded as a kid

5/10 is a straight up failure.

Just look at Rotten Tomatoes as the way the U.S. looks at things. Anything under 60% or under 6/10 is a failure and represents just degrees of failure. Because basically... if your product gets as many things wrong as it does right... it does not pass muster.

Really like this series...is it still ongoing?

Loving the story, art, colors and especially the Alien Drones, might be the best ones I've ever seen, forgot to see who's drawing them.

Interesting....https://www.cbr.com/marvel-alien-xenomorphs-purpose/

RT is really more of a two point system, fresh and rotten. They do their own thing.

If you look at Metacritic (a US site), they lay out a direct translation of out of 100 to grades:

That's the thing, it's not, regardless of region. This is conflating grading scale with rating scale. Though it is right on the borderline. I've looked, and have yet to see any rating site that uses out of 10 that considers 5 to be a flat-out failure, hence why I corrected myself. My concession was that being completely middle of the road could easily be considered a failure to many.

But find me any site that uses out of 10 scale which specifically lists 5 as a failure rather than smack dab in the middle, I haven't found one. But really this isn't that big of a discrepancy, just a perspective at where true bad begins, at 4, or at 5. If something is given a 4 or a 5 by the majority of critics and audiences, I don't think it can be described as liked in either case.

And with 5 stars (how we used to do things around here), if you're going with half stars, it's really just another 10 scale system.
