2. Hong Kong - 8
3. Shanghai - 6
4. Chicago - 6
5. Tokyo - 6
6. Dubai - 5
7. Shenzhen - 5
7. Toronto - 3
8. Singapore - 3
10. Chongqing - 3
....
11. Vancouver - 2
12. Gold Coast City - 1

I don't understand if the points have to be proportional to my opinion of the skylines or to the place in the ranking, as this second option is very obvious, I gave points according to my opinion, you choose what is the correct way to give points.
