All handicapping systems are designed to even the odds between players of different skill levels. CapCity Dart League uses LeagueLeader league system to calculate and track handicaps.
Players’ Marks Per Round (MPR) is used for cricket games and Points Per Dart (PPD) for X01 games. When two or more players are on the same score their MPR/PPD’s are averaged. This average is used instead of individual MPR/PPD to set the handicap for that game.
Your handicap is kept on file for a minimum of three sessions. Therefor if you take a break from darts on session and return later in the year, you will return with your last handicap scores in affect.
Spot Marks is used only with Cricket style games. It uses the average Marks Per Round (MPR) of each player in the game. Multiple players on the same number will be averaged together to determine the “Team” MPR. The dartboard will then determine who “deserves” the extra marks and will place them accordingly. The dartboard will award starting marks, based on the players MPR. The better team will not get any starting marks, but the rest of the players could have anywhere from one starting mark to 14 starting marks.
Spot Points is a percentage based handicap method using a player’s Points Per Dart (PPD). Using this method, each player is compared to the highest PPD in the game to determine their starting score. The dartboards use the NDA charts to calculate formulas.
The best player of that round will always start at the highest X01 score (501 or 301). The rest of the players could have anywhere from the minimum starting score to equal with the highest player.
If multiple players are playing on the same number, they will be averaged together to determine the “Team” PPD. The dartboard will then determine who “deserves” the break on points. In this case the best “Team” will start at the highest X01 starting score.
