The intermediate finals round was fine, the way I see it. But top qualifiers should've been granted some advancement. A bye to the bracket directly for instance.
It is the organisers priviledge to change groups up to the start. But, it must be kept evenly distributed according to seeding. I also had changes to my group. So I think there was more players asking for a later timeslot (which is fair). Ideally this sort of things should have been sorted the day before at the latest.
That came to bite me so hard. First game for me was a surprise JM with the hand disabled. But, games break down. Right. I guess the way is to have a game short list including one or two backup games.
A puzzle to me. The qualification games had seemingly completed in time. Why not just print the bracket and ask people to go ahead.
Man. That system pre-dates all other pinball scoring systems to the best of my knowledge. Even Brackalope. I think it originates around Patrik Bodin / Stockholm Open.
The problem was the number of scorekeepers.
Surely a huge undertaking. So props to the organisers and voulenteers.
