Head-to-head scoring

Players from both teams shall be listed in metrix divisions from highest-ranking to the lowest and paired accordingly (LV top player vs. LT top player, etc.)

The winner in a pair earns three points for his country, the loser earns one point. In case of draw both players earn two points.

The player, who has no pair, earns one point if his or her result is better than average result of all players of opponent team in his or her division.

In case of no show up or withdrawal after the establishment of pairs, the missing player shall be replaced by his/her teammate from the same division who has the highest rating among players without pair. If there is no player without pair in that division to replace missing player, the player earns 2 points for his/her country.

Tie between countries

In case of tie between countries after both stages, two best players from each country shall play sudden death until the player or players of one (winner) country are left.

 

Awards

The winner country shall be awarded with the transferable cup.
