What is a RATING?
In darts, a RATING is a numerical value that indicates your ability. Just like a handicap in golf or a score in bowling, a RATING shows a level of darts ability.
A RATING gives you an idea of your current ability and helps you to set goals for your future darts progress. Once you join the DARTSLIVE Subscription Plan, you can easily check your RATING on your smartphone.

Classified into 18 Levels
A RATING is classified from level 1 to 18. As your darts ability increases, your rating goes up.
Your RATING is calculated from the values (STATS) of 01 GAMES and STANDARD CRICKET match records.
Each RATING is also grouped into a “FLIGHT,” which categorizes general skill alphabetically from C to SA.
|1||0.0 ～||0.00 ～||C|
|2||40.0 ～||1.30 ～|
|3||45.0 ～||1.50 ～|

Calculation of RATING
When you insert a DARTSLIVE Card into a DARTSLIVE machine and play (or log in with a virtual card), your play data is recorded and a RATING is calculated.
The RATING is calculated using our DARTSLIVE proprietary methods, including placing more weight on the most recent 30 games from which the RATING is calculated.
DARTSLIVE uses 80% STATS and your RATING is calculated based on those 80% STATS. Our entire services are based upon this RATING. This includes participation in tournaments and campaigns, the display on the darts screen, and the criteria for auto-handicapping.
- What are 80% STATS and 100% STATS?
STATS consists of 80% STATS and 100% STATS.
For 80% STATS, they are determined when 80% of the game has progressed.
On the other hand, for 100% STATS, the rating is determined at the end of a game.
- The 80% system may be more friendly for beginners as STATS are determined before the game ends. Beginners often take a long time to finish a game. However 80% STATS does not reflect finishing data, so new darts players can play without any pressure.
Conditions for Calculating 80% STATS
STATS are decided when a player has scored 80% of the points from after the start of the game.
|The criteria used to determine a RATING:|
|301||If the remaining score is below 60, BUST or a low score will not affect the RATING.|
|501||If the remaining score is below 100, BUST or a low score will not affect the RATING.|
|701||If the remaining score is below 140, BUST or a low score will not affect the RATING.|
|901||If the remaining score is below 180, a low score will not affect the RATING.|
|1101||If the remaining score is below 220, a low score will not affect the RATING.|
|1501||If the remaining score is below 300, a low score will not affect the RATING.|
RATING is determined when a player opens six numbers.
