September Match Play with Playoff Format
10 Rounds of Group Match Play. If 64 people attend the field will be seeded 1-64 after the end of round 10. Field is broken up into A,B,C, and D divisions with 16 people in each. You then compete only against the people in your division on up to 12 games for the top 3 trophies!
The format will consist of 10 Rounds of play in groups of 4 (3 players if necessary)
One game will be played per round per group
Scoring will be 7-5-3-1 or 7-4-1
All games will be drawn randomly but should balance out so you’re not playing the same machine over and over again.
First round will be random seeding.
NOTE THE CHANGE IN GROUPINGS FOR LESS THAN 64 PLAYERS:
Subsequent rounds will be Swiss Seeding. After 10 rounds the field will be ranked and divided into groups. A group will have 16 players no matter what. B,C,D groups will be equally divided among the remaining players. If we have 50 players. 16 will be in A, 12 in B, 12 in C, and 10 in D. All ties for seeding will be broken with 1 game playoffs. If we have more than 64 people some people won’t make the playoffs of main tournament but are welcome to stay. For IFPA reporting purposes once you are put into a division you cannot advance higher than the best position in your qualifying group for WPPR points and the overall tournament finish. Example—If you are in B division and you win that grouping you will be in 17th place for the whole tournament.
Playoffs will be a group multi-match knockout tournament. This will be seeded using the results from the qualifying round. All machines inside TitleTown pinball can be used for the playoffs. They will be assigned in groups of 4 and randomly picked each round for your group. You will play in a group of 4 people playing 4 games. You will get 7/5/3/1 scoring on each game based on your finishing position against the 3 other players in your group.
These games will be played simultaneously with player 1 playing ball 1 on game 1…once that ball drains they move to game 2 play ball 1 while 2nd person steps up to game 1 and plays their ball 1, etc. You must play all 4 games in order and stay in your order of play as well. If anyone or multiple people out of order they will be given last place for that 1 game.
Once the 4 games are completed the scores are added up. The top 2 advance the bottom 2 are eliminated. If there is a tie between 2nd and 3rd a 1 game playoff from the alternate listed on the sheet will be played between the tied people. No other ties will be broken except for the top 4 overall in each division for trophies.
This will go from 16 people to start round 1 then 8 people to start round 2 to the final 4 to start round 3 in each division. 12 games total in playoffs will be played to determine the winner.
I need the scores of everyone who is eliminated on round because I will be basing the overall finishing position on what you scored in your group for playoffs. Example: If you get 12 points on your 4 games and someone in the same division and round but different group scores 14 points they will be ranked higher than you for the overall finishing position of the tournament. I don’t want an 8 way tie for 9th.
That’s the whole tournament. All IFPA guidelines regarding player order, stuck balls, machine malfunctions, etc will be followed. Tournament Director has final say on all rulings.
TitleTown Pinball September Multi-Match Play Format:
Everyone gets to try and qualify for the tournament but only the top 16 will do a playoff.
This is mostly the same format that I ran for the Late Night Bonus Tournament in March and May Multi-Match Play Format. Qualifying for this tournament will start at 8:30AM with practice for main tournament. Finals for this tournament will start at the conclusion of awards from the 1st tournament; approximately 6PM. This tournament will be a 2 game, best game, qualifier then a 3 round, 12 game multi match playoff for the top 16 players. 2 machines will be set aside before the start of the main Match Play tournament. You will play 1 game on each machine and write down your actual score. You will then receive points (1-100) based on how well you do against the rest of the field and points will be assigned using IFPA scoring (100,90,85,84,83,etc). You can qualify for this tournament anytime from 8:30AM to conclusion of Main Tournament Finals but you only get 1 try on each machine.
Then the top 16 players will do a 12 game multi match play playoff to determine the winner with top 2 advancing and bottom 2 being eliminated with every round of each 4 group set. 4 groups of 4 people each will be bracketed based on qualifying position and play 4 games against each other. These 4 games will be played at the same time (multi-matchplay style). You will recieve (7/5/3/1) scoring based on how well you do. The top 2 will advance the bottom 2 will be eliminated. Groupings of games will be pre-selected and randomly picked. Top seed in each group gets to choose their order 1st, then next highest seed, etc. How many points you get in each round do matter. If you get eliminated I will look at how many points you earned vs other people that got eliminated in the same round and rank you based on points earned so we won’t have an 8 way tie for 9th place. We will continue this way until the top 4 remain. Only the ties for 1st overall or 2nd & 3rd in 1st and 2nd rounds will be broken with a 1 game playoff. If someone qualifies for Top 16 and can’t stay I will take the next person (17th) and put them in the Top 16 for playoffs. The person that left will be put in 17th position for final standings. If someone leaves early after starting the playoffs they will get their ball launched and most likely last place in that grouping. No trophies for this tournament but I will have a couple small prizes for 1st and 2nd.
