A new prizes and points scheme was introduced from Spring 2006 for the new rotation system as described below. The previous system is described here.
The TOYOTA - IGS-PandaNet Tour tournaments are divided into three groups: the Finals, the 4 Majors and the 7 Supers; each group has different prize and point allocations.
Some 75% of the tour budget is distributed to the players, 15500 Euro as prizes at tournaments and 7000 Euro for the top twelve in the overall ranking.
Nine percent is allocated to help the tournament organisers run their events and the rest is used to support broadcasting games on IGS-PandaNet.

|Place||Supers||Majors||Paris Finals||Overall Ranking|
TOYOTA - IGS-PandaNet Tour points are given to top 12 places in the Finals, top 10 in Majors and top 8 places in the supers. Players with the same MacMahon score will divide the total points of their shared places. Their score will be rounded up to two digits behind the comma (0,333 will be 0,34 and 0,666 is 0,67). Only players who compete in every round of a tournament will be eligible for points for that tournament.
If TOYOTA - IGS-PandaNet Tour points of two players are the same in the overall ranking then the player with the most first places in the Tour gets the higher place, if the number of first places is equal than the number of second places will be compared, and so on.
Before the start of the Finals a player may count points
up to a maximum of 100 from the first eleven tournaments.
A player gets places 1,1,2,2,2 in 5 Supers and 2 in the Finals.
The points are 24+24+20+20+20=108 > 100 and 32 points in the Finals =132.
