Online registration is now open for the Intergalactic tournament at https://prereg.papa.org for those wishing to pay by credit or debit card. Your player # and PIN # will be emailed to you. All proceeds from your $20 entry fee go to charity.
Lines were long last year. We’re hoping many players take advantage of online registration this year.
Live registration will still be available during open qualifying hours.
Please DO NOT register online if you are scorekeeping 2 or more hours. Your entry will be created manually and you’ll be given your login info prior to the tournament.
Is that actually how it works? I thought the base value stayed the same but the qualifying games were just dropped from the TGP calculation. So if there were 401 players, 40 qualified, then the other 361 wouldn’t appear in the final standings?
As suggested to in the registration email, I downloaded the PAPA app through Google Play, but when I launched it I received a warning that “The version of the papa scoring software you are using is no longer supported. You must update to the newest version”.
We are having problems getting the latest version of the iOS and Android apps pushed to their respective app stores. The problem should be resolved in the next 2-3 days and the new version of the apps should be ready by next wed
We don’t endorse tournaments that don’t advance at least 10% of the players to a direct play portion. This is different than our selfie rules which specifically mention unverified results having a lack of TGP impact.
The qualifying portion of Intergalactic would simply “not be an endorsed IFPA tournament” full stop, if it failed to advance at least 10% of the players to the final. We would endorse that finals activity with those finals participants, but anything prior to that would be ignored for IFPA purposes.
New finals promotion rule for 2018 Intergalactic. If more than 400 people participate we’ll advance n additional people in multiples of 4 (to preserve groups of 4 in the first 3 rounds of the knockout portion).
400 or fewer players = 40 finalists
401 to 440 players = 44 finalists
441 to 480 players = 48 finalists
Player = person that counts towards 10% advancement rule.
