I didn’t really keep track of that, but I have been wondering about my overall performance as of late. I was shocked that I was able to qualify for A division. I ended up finishing T-122.
I was definitely there to compete and didn’t really give much thought about prize money. I played my best. I was shocked to learn how much money was spread among all the divisions. It makes me wonder how many people sandbagged for the money, and if I really did as well as I thought I did. Well for me anyways
I think last year was similar, but I had only 9 points on DMDs somehow (and a bit higher on ESS and LSS), even though that’s what I play primarily.
Both this year and last year I was glad to focus my practice on EMs - there are a handful that I can play regularly at Lyons Classic Pinball. Almost across the board, my groupmates were significantly less comfortable on the older machines…and couldn’t seem to play them as patiently as they did the newer games.
I didn’t record my results era by era, but if memory serves me right, this year I didn’t get any zeros on the modern game. The third game (early dmd / late solid state) I think I only got one zero… on Corvette of all games…
Really need to work on my solid state abilities it seems. Also surprising that I had so few third place finishes. It’s not like I’m playing boom/bust strategies…I’m always conscious of trying to pass the person ahead of me first, and going from there.
Seems like I need to work on the early SS more than anything else, but in general, bring up my play. Also shows how much worse my 2nd day was, mostly due to EM’s, which carried me on day 1, but did not fare anywhere near as well on day 2.
