Most tourney lists are just copy and paste from internet forums and at the moment the majority of strong army lists are more about who can throw the most money at new models and codexes.
How can you say which player deserves to win based purely on tactics and results when there is such disparity between different army books.
Soft scores mean that players have to put at least something into army creation instead of just picking a list from the forum of their choice paying a fortune for flyer spam and walking over whatever army is put in front of them.
Sportsmanship scores make players realise that social skills are important too far to many players seem to think that they can act like they do on faceless internet forums and treat others without even common curtesy in there desperate need for a win with toy soldiers making a veneer of civility matter at least tempers some of the rudeness.
