Over analysing personal pinburgh results.


#21
  1. 23 DMD, 14 EM, 16 SS/DMD, 10 SS.

I really improved on DMDs over previous 2 years, but I think that had to do with me playing much worse on day 1 more than me getting better at DMDs. Only took one zero on DMDs, and that was a “physical nature of the game” moment.

Sad to have a “bad” EM year.


#22

I joined the Pinburgh party for the first time this year. Here was my performance. You can kind of tell I got crappier as the sessions went on as I stopped taking pictures of the scores at the end :wink: I cannot wait for next year to redeem my poor play and have more data to compare to!!

I crushed the DMDs both days, and did equally poorly on the EMs. Including the DMDs in the late solid state category I went 36-9 on DMDs through the first 10 rounds. The big difference for me is that I played really poorly on solid states day 1 versus day 2. If I had played better I had opportunities for at least 1 more win on Sinbad, Funhouse, TX-Sector (took 3rd by less than 100k), Rollergames , and Powerplay.

In B finals I was lucky to play the same bank rounds 2-4. Then in the final 4 we switched banks and I bombed both DMDs. Still really happy with 4th in B.

Pinburgh was an amazing experience. I’ve been thinking about it at work all day and I can’t wait to go back. It’s pretty clear what I need to get better at as well. I’m excited to start improving on older games and see how high I can go next year!


#24

And now I regret not taking pictures of the score cards.


#25

haha same with me every year :wink:


#26

Here is my breakdown. I took way too many zeros on the SS’s. Looks like I need to work on those a bit. Really pleased with the EMs. Gotta turn some of those 1’s into 2’s next year!


#27

Had my most balanced year in terms of eras. I think my day 2 drop-off was more about consolidating my bad luck than anything else. I wasn’t playing like a world champ or anything, but had a lot of 0 or 1 flip balls unfortunately.

Looking at some of my ones and zeroes, many were in really close games. I left a multiball lit on ball 3 on four different games. Making those shots would have gained me 10 additional points. Hitting one good spinner rip on TX Sector would have gained me another 3. So…I was only five shots away from cruising into A finals. :slight_smile:


#28

IIRC, I won 8 total on DMDs (oof). I definitely remember a number of brick-drain combos on those. 3 on Ghostbusters from the video mode plunge. 16/15/16 on the other categories (iirc).


#29

Usually the EMs are what helps keep me in it but boy not this year. Man, that 3 on day two really burns.
