Continuing the discussion from MAGfest PAPA Circuit Event Info 2/18-2/21:
A few updates I want to ensure players attending MAGfest easily find:
- Here is the current crazy schedule for the entire MAGfest show: http://schedule.magfest.org/ Be sure to play the claw machine tournament, it’s a riot
- If you plan on attending, I recommend you buy the show pass as soon as you can to ensure they don’t sell out at the door. They have never hit capacity but there is a chance they could this year at around 20,000 attendees.
- Playoffs will comprise the top 24 players. Format is PAPA style, top 8 players with a bye for first round. Top 8 players that are beginners (IFPA rank TBD) will play a simple double-elimination bracket so it finishes quickly.
- Here is the overall schedule for the tournament. Not quite 24 hour qualifying, figure give the machines a rest in between days.
7pm: Sign-ups begin
8pm - 5am: Qualifying
10am - 4am: Qualifying
9am - 4pm: Qualifying
(Last game started is at 3:45pm, games will be turned off after last game running at 3:45 is completed)
5:15 - 5:30pm: Player check-in for playoffs
6pm: Playoffs begin and will play out until completion
