Why not set the score in the reducer to score: action.score? Action might be ADD_PLAYER_WITH_INTIALSCORE

Is adding a state for our score something we would do or is just set to 0 as a default and another action like UPDATE_SCORE would be better? I'm assuming the initial score may not be 0. export default function Player(state=initialState, action){ switch(action.type){ case:ADD_PLAYER_WITH_SCORE; return [ ...state, { name: action.name, score: action.score } ]; } }
