TitleTown Pinball Oct Flipper Frenzy Format:

Big Picture:

You are going to be playing lots and lots of pinball with very little down time. All the matches are head to head not 4 player groups. You either win or lose and it doesn’t matter by how much. Then you play another game against someone else then you go to the end of queue. Then when you are at start of queue you play again. This all goes pretty fast so in 4 hours you will get in a lot of games. Probably more than double the games you would get in during a match play tournament. I am going to explain this in further detail below but bottom line—lots of pinball–lots of fun– Play More Pinball.

Fine Details:

I will be using the match play software to run this tournament. The initial queue size will be 15% of the field, I will use virtual queuing, tiebreaker will be the most wins. Example: 60 people in tournament–initial queue will be 10 people. Computer will randomly pick 50 people to play 25 machines in head to head matches. Tournament starts. Computer picked player 1 and player 2 on each machine. You will play head to head alternating turns like we normally play just with 2 people instead of 4. You will either win or lose. You come back to the computer and show the scorekeeper the result of your match. That info is put into computer. The computer will then immediately draw another match for player 1 from your group that just finished (regardless of who won or lost) and the 1st person in the queue. Player 2 from your group will go to the end of the queue. So now player 1 from your group becomes player 2 in the next match and the 1st person in the queue becomes player 1 in that match. This will continue for 4 hours. At the end of 4 hours no new matches will be drawn. Everyone finishes the game they are on and results posted.

If a machine malfunctions I will use a backup game to put the players on and start over with using the same order they played on broken game. I multiple machines break at same time subsequent groups will have both people go to the end of the queue and another machine will be randomly drawn for the 2 people at the top of the queue who will play each other. If someone doesn’t show up for a match they will get a loss for that match and put at the end of the queue, the 1st person in the queue will play the person that did show up on time.

The winner of the tournament is going to be the person with the best win loss record. No Playoff except for ties for top 8 for trophies. For IFPA points a tie between 1st and 2nd will result in a playoff that matters for both trophy and tournament finish. A tie for 2nd-8th will result in a playoff for just the trophy position and how I post it on TitleTown website. Ties for 2nd-7th will be reported as Ties to IFPA. Net wins description: If someone has 25 wins and 4 losses they are a +21 if some one else has 26 wins and 6 losses they have a +20. The +21 is better than the +20. People will play more and less amounts of games in the time allotted depending on how long each match takes.

I need 2 dedicated score keepers for this event. If you would like to be one please let me know. I give the dedicated score keepers a credit of the cost of the tournament towards a future event or they could have someone they are coming with be free for this event. [i.e. you bring your spouse to enter the results on the computer and you play free :-)]
