Not really the same thing - anyone can calculate how many extra points each player earned, as long as he/she has some time and puts in a bit of effort. For example here in Katowice all you have to do is sum up points from R1 with R2/2, QF/3, SF/4 and F/5; not exactly rocket science

Well it's up to each manager how they want to do it, really. __________________ maybe there's a way out of this cage where you live maybe one of these days you can let the light in SH GM HW SK CSN VА JL MB AB KiB RH DP AvU PMȚ SA IdV UE MS | twitter

We started it a few months ago and it basically means that in singles every correct pick is worth one point more than before. So for R1 it's 1+1, for the next one 2+1 etc. The manager chooses if (s)he'll calculate the extra points upfront, cause my initial idea was to add them only after the tournament has finished, on top of regular tournament points, but some have disagreed so I let a manager to decide on this. So to sum it up, now we have:

tournament points (like before)
+ extra points (one for each correct pick, regardless of round)
+ bonus points (if you've made it into top 8 or 12)

Hope this explains it
