We’re considering the idea of using these types of opportunities to help other leagues, locations, etc leverage Pinburgh’s popularity to benefit themselves and pinball as a whole. Full details will be announced when / if it becomes an annual opportunity. Nothing is set in stone right now, but best practices on how to move forward are being discussed and weighed against the inevitable blowback.
Either way, as Doug says, it will at most be a very small percentage of overall tickets and will be announced publicly well in advance of 2019 dates. One of the problems we’ve begun to face is the annual slew of people who run promotions without our consent, followed by the panicked requests from organizers who realize they’ve awarded a prize they cannot produce. This situation isn’t good for anyone, so we’re looking into a more established and transparent system for this aspect of the tournament / show.
