Possibly the most misunderstood feature of the DartConnect app is how to properly use the “D” and “T” buttons when scoring a game of cricket. “D” stands for “Doubles” and “T” for Triples.
A lot of people incorrectly assume that these buttons are “shortcuts”, meaning if you hit three singles of the same number, a single tap of the “T” button is all you need, and the same idea for the “D” button. While this has no affect on the main cricket stat, Marks Per Round (MPR), this will not allow for DartConnect’s unique advanced cricket stats: Missed Dart Percentage and Triple Accuracy.
The correct way to score cricket using DartConnect is to tap the buttons that EXACTLY match what your darts hit. For example, when you hit a triple, tap the respective “T” button and when you hit a double, tap the respective “D” button. If you hit a single, then tap the respective number button. Let’s say you hit three singles, the correct input is three taps of the number button. Including “Enter”, this means you will tap the scoreboard a maximum of 4 times to enter your score.
DartConnect’s Unique Cricket Stats
While Marks Per Round is the most common measurement for cricket skill, DartConnect provides advanced statistics made possible by entering scores correctly:
Missed Dart Percentage – quite simply, this measures how often your darts don’t count towards your score. This can be a great way to measure accuracy and improvement over time.
Triple Accuracy – you could loosely consider this the cricket equivalent of “100+ scores” in 01 stats as it indicates the extent to which you are a “heavy scorer” and is a great augment to round out your MPR.
Both of these stats can provide a better understanding of where you excel and where you need improvement. Better yet, data collection is completely automated.
All you have to do is keep score and DartConnect does the rest!
