This way, people could separate the big group in smaller ones and, later on, stack the tracks inside the groups according to their preferences: this would automatically work as a tiebraker as well, in case of equal scores.
This is a very good idea and would help voting, but will everybody understand it? And can it be implemented?

I don't see how someone could actually 'skew' the votes; that might have been the case with 15 or so participants, but with the current amounts someone could flip a first and second place by aggressive voting, but with those numbers it is impossible to get someone who is ranking top three (for example) down to say 'below top ten'.
Wow this is something I missed in the considerations. As you say, with the new system, tactical voting will be just as effective or more than the old one in some cases..
