Frequently asked questions
The answers to all your questions about the Radikal Darts world
To play competitions, players must register in any machine with the Radikal System. That means having a nickname, an ID and filling in the form with your personal data (First Name, Last Name, Gender, Contact Information). This process is free.
Registration in machines: step by step
Using the keyboard or touch pad: Scroll on the main menu, enter the “General Information” section, by pressing “OK”.
Players have to read the Personal Data Protection Law (scroll down with the ↓ button to see the whole text) and accept it when the blinking word “Accepted” appears (by pressing “OK”).
Enter your own ID, which is going to be your unique personal ID from now on. Your ID needs to be your initials and date of birth. Not only for you to remember your ID number easily, but also to prove your identification when receiving a prize (you must prove the person that has been playing is you). Example: Michael Williams, born in 29th March 1969 will have the ID MW03291969.
The system will check that there are no ID matches in the data base already. If it is available (no existing matches), the system will assign that ID to you.
Fill in the form with your First Name, Last Name, Nickname, Gender, Cell Number, Email Address. The nickname is extremely important, as it is the name the machine and the system will show in your matches and games. You must press “OK” to confirm your personal data. Phone number and email are also required to go past this point, that is need for contacting you in case of prize winnings.
At the end, the system will take a picture of the player. You will see text on screen telling you to look at the camera, at the lower part of the TFT monitor. Pressing the “START” button, the machine will take your picture and will be stored in the system with all your personal data.

All the registered players in Radikal Darts will get their own PPD and MPR ratings once they play 25 or more games in both X01 (for the PPD) and Cricket (for the MPR).
Only official competition games are looked at for Rating calulations. Official competitions are Rankings, Super Rankings, Face to Face Leagues, Online Leagues, Virtual Leagues, and Tournaments.
Ratings are calculated using an advanced algorithm taking many factors from the games played into account. These Ratings are NOT straight averages of the games played even though the numbers (PPD and MPR) can appear as so. Players should not compare Radikal Ratings to other Rating systems or averages, only compare Radikal Ratings to Radikal Ratings.
