To me it makes sense in one way to draw them like that, as the ratios will still be the same, but then again, if you change your X point, all the other ratios will be affected as well.
Also, did you consider this in your backtesting?
I'm not sure I understand the last part of your question. Do i consider what during backtesting? Do you mean adjusting the "X" leg to force the ratios to work?
Anyway, for the backtesting part, my question is this: when you backtested your patterns, did you write down if the X points were in the middle of a trend or at a structure level? Because I feel like that could potentially make a huge difference. (Like in this case, I would say the first pattern is in the middle of a trend whereas the other two are not.)
The reason why I'm asking this is because you always talk about how important structure is to you.
