Crucifixition was the preferred practice.

That'd be crucifixation, Dr. Bill.

Did they ever get it right?

Why would I deny that I'm not Spartacus?

If practice makes perfect, Crassus' army should have become quite proficient by the time they finished crucifying the remnants of the rebel army. And Spartacus had been killed in battle.

What accent should he have used? The pronunciation preferred for singing Church Latin?

They didn't have Church Latin in Spartacus' day. They were still saying, "Waynie, weedy, weaky."
