2018 PDC World Cup of Darts

Postby phil davies » Wed Mar 07, 2018 12:14 pm

Just reading that Bruno Rangel has won the Brazilian qualification for this so will join Diogo Portella in their countries second appearance at the event. Be intresting to see what Asian teams get in this year also.

Also lots of intresting battles to see who will represent the countries Netherlands and Scotland looked nailed on but a battle between Chizzy, Smith and Wade for England. Clayton and Lewis for Wales etc.

Really love this comp.

China are having there own qualifier then there’s the top 2 from each nation off the PDC Asian tour table probably Japan, phillipines, Hong Kong and South Korea.

Be good to South Korea in it, would like to see India return simply because much like their is potential for huge growth. Hopefully this tournament gets expanded to 40 nations soon to such countries an oppertunity as even within Europe their are plenty with decent players who get left out never the need to grow in Asia plus more representation for Africa, South America and the carribean.

Liking the look of the Danish team, Primdal could be the surprise package.
I Really wanted to see Ulf Ceder again.

How have they decided these as surely mad Vlad and I believe possibly some other Danes should be above Primdal from the rankings from this years events?

Also Lithuania should be in this rather than Denmark or Sweden.

I think Phil means how has Primdal been selected when there are at least 2 other Danish players above him in the OOM, unless they have based it on a rolling table (doubt it) which I can't be bothered to research. Basically the rankings are worthless when it comes to World Cup selection, the current top player won't even feature. At least now Labanauskas can go to the World Trophy instead

This competition is absolutely worthless and boring imo.
A waste of time.

These are the criteria for the PDCNB World Cup teams:

http://pdc-nordic.tv/2018/03/13/world-cup-of-darts-2/

There are 6 other Danish players ahead of him in the PDCNB ranking for 2018 so far, but as they've based it on the last 12 months Primdal is in, as despite only making one quarter final he cashed in the last 6 Pro Tour events of 2017. It's an absolute travesty that he gets the place though, it's detrimental to Denmark's chances this year and might even cause Denmark not to get a spot next year unless they expand the field. I think Lithuania with Labanauskas/Barauskas were more deserving to get the spot, even this year.

Couldn’t disagree more the World Cup has been one of the main reasons the game is becoming more global each year. It’s a chance for the smaller nations to get a bit of experience on the main stage.

It should be more like international events on the other side of the divide. Bloated teams of 12, "dead" matches played, and 9 darters hit once the TV coverage has finished.

And all in SD.

Would be great.

But would that not make the bigger countries more likely to win and see less smaller nations cause upsets.

I think the Paul Lim games last year were the most exciting PDC games I've watched.

I think a format change would be in order, maybe add a lady player into the mix and have six singles and one three a side.

I like it. get to see players we don't often see in a different format to normal The Canadian team last year was very weak with Part well out of form and Norman Jnr looked out of his depth but they were the only 2 Canadian players in the PDC. I assume this year it will be Part who looks in much better form now and Dawson Murschell is an up and coming youngster.

Personally love this tournament though I agree it should just be pairs throughout.

It’s great to see new players and nations and has provided some great shocks and other moments down the years.
