Effectively yes, only exception is if you get seeding protected through to the last 80/64/48 of a tournament and lose your first match then you only get a portion of the applicable pounds for ranking purposes. Most of the tournaments are everyone starting at R128 now so becoming less of a factor.

Wasn't quite sure how it worked, but seems a little meh. If Murphy won the final, he would be WR2 and Bingham WR6 as opposed to the other way around but not sure if there's a better formula. It's effectively trying to force players to play smaller ranking events for less money than if they rested up and played non-ranking or promos for more money.

Hard to find a better system though, the two year system is a bit odd aswell. I never agreed with that one.

Looks the same system as the PDC darts then.

I like the two year rolling rankings.

A few surprise results being thrown up in this so far with some of the top seeds beaten already.

England 1-4 Thailand
Ireland 1-4 China 2 (possibly)
Scotland 2-3 Brazil
Australia 2-3 Pakistan

England 1-0 down to China B so they could be heading for an early exit if they can't turn it around. Ireland 3-0 up on UAE so not even sure if England losing 2 on the bounce, and China B starting off with 2 wins is good for Ire or not!

Has to be good as if Ireland win rest of their games they should go through - although frame difference may likely come in to play.

Wasn't sure if H2H or frame difference is the tie-breaker if teams are level on points, and with only 2 spots, we could be giving 1 up to China B at this stage, so defo need to beat England and the rest. Think i'd prefer to see group games being a maximum of 6 frames, so they can finish 3-3, or else stop if a team gets to 4 frames.

Yeah would definitely make it more interesting. Thought the lads might have a bit of a chance with Fergal playing well but it really is a shoot out scenario with the 1 frame games. Anybody there has the potential to win a frame in one visit.

Nope!

I just read the rules

1. Each team will play one 5 frames match against each other team in the group.

2. In a match, each player will play one frame against the other players in the opposing team; frames 1-2 & 4-5. The third frame in each match will involve players in each team playing a doubles frame with each player taking alternate turns.

3. The top 2 teams from each group will progress to the next round in the tournament.

4. Teams must take part in all round robin matches in that round of the Tournament for their results in that round to count.

5. One point will be awarded for each frame won.

6. The number of frames won will determine the group positions.

7. In determining the top two positions in each group, should there be an equal number of frames won by two or more teams, then the following criteria will determine the final position of each team in each group:

If two teams are equal, the winner of the match between the two teams who are equal
If two or more teams are tied a sudden death blue ball shoot out will be played between the teams who are equal. The blue ball will be placed on its spot and the cue-ball must be struck from within the D. The teams will toss a coin to determine who will go first. Each player in each team will take turns to pot the blue from its spot.

^^^ So weird!

Matches lost, frames against or frame difference never comes into play then! Let's get those frames on the board Ireland!

Well if they finish level in 2nd place with a team that beat them then they are out so probably a 5-0 and 4-1 minimum required!

Well that's the 4-1, and it's tight at the top, but still not looking good for us.

It's unfortunate that Thailand are playing UAE last, because it looks like we're out. If we get a 3-2 win, China just need 1 frame to qualify, and 3 frames for Thailand puts them through. UAE have only won 2 frames in 4 matches, so can't see them doing us any favours.

If we can get a 4-1 win over England, then China need 2 frames and Thailand need 4, both of which will probably get there anyway. gg

True, but with the scoring format of "frames won" we'd probably have been in a much better spot. Having no cues to play with was a disaster.
