2017-2018 PAPA Circuit Events


#327

We can’t do that until it’s finalized; it’s not finalized until circuit payments and results are submitted to us. So who is really holding up this process, I ask you?


#328

I’m not the authorized party to submit these; I’ve passed on your need to the appropriate person. The standings portion, which should be all that’s needed for the 2017-2018 Circuit, were all put up on the IFPA site; if you need the standings sent directly to you, let me know, and if in a particular form, let me know that, too.

Update: I sent in the standings, Karl sent the funds.


#329

Are Magfest standings in?


#330

My guess is no, since they have ours and the since standings on the website include everything except Magfest and INDISC. That would leave Magfest as the missing one.


#331

Gotta pay the Stern / Replay Team for the Circuit inclusion as well.


#332

Yes, INDISC 2018 may be the only event that will ever have had to pay 3 fees: 2017-2018 Circuit, 2018 Circuit and IFPA.


#333

CHOSE to . . . nobody forced you guys to do anything :wink:


#334

Not complaining, just noting. Amusing situation we found ourselves in with the overlap.


#335

Standings are up I see. Now the fun can begin on the bracket.


#336

Those WPPRized standings didn’t include Magfest.


#337

Fixed that for you :wink:


#338

Try submitting results for players with an apostrophe. You can’t without the player #. Last/'Name apparently doesn’t exist in the database, lol.


#339

Anyone have the Louisville Pinball tourneys schedule? I heard there are 4 different tourneys but there is no info on the website or facebook.

MAIN TOURNAMENT:
In the Main Tournament qualifying scores will be drawn from a player’s best attempts on five of the available machines. Each individual attempt on a machine will be weighted against all other attempts on that same machine and ranked on a scale of 0-100 points. This ranking system allows individual game scores from different eras of pinball to be compared directly with one another. Players are permitted as many attempts as they wish on each of the machines, but only their best attempt on five different machines will count toward their overall qualifying score.

Qualifying times:
Friday: 2 PM - 11:30 PM
Saturday: 10 AM - 9:30 PM

FINALS:
Finals will be conducted PAPA style. 4 player groups playing three games, scores 4-2-1-0.

The top 24 players will qualify for Division A finals
Players ranked between 1 and 599 in the World Pinball Player Rankings are restricted to Division A.

The next 16 unrestricted players will qualify for ‘B’ Division.

The first round of playoffs for the Main division will start at 9:45 PM Saturday night. The final 3 rounds will start at 10 AM on Sunday.

CLASSICS TOURNAMENT
In the classics division, competitors will be scored on their best four machines.

Players are permitted as many attempts as they wish on each of the machines, but only their best attempt on four different machines will count toward their overall qualifying score. There is no ‘B’ Division for Classics.

Qualifying times:
Friday: 2 PM - 11:30 PM
Saturday: 10 AM - 5 PM

FINALS
