    I am going to take some time during the trip to stop at Pinball Perfection and Pinball PA with a stop at Rock Fantasy on the drive home. Getting excited to go to my first Pinburgh, even just as a spectator.

    Getting ready to head back out for the last day, played 52 machines I had never had the chance to play before including some super rare ones so I am a happy camper. Hit ReplayFX Fri and Sunday, went to Pinball Perfection and Pinball, PA yesterday before a party. Going to stop at Rock Fantasy on the way home, Pinball for days!

    It was my first Pinburgh as well and we had a blast. We got to check out some local pinball joints like Pinball Perfection and Pinball, PA and they were both awesome as well as our stop at Rock Fantasy on the drive home.

    As for the show itself; I will echo what others have said. There needs to be better updates on when the various events are happening and when the stream will be on the air. I went to the PAPA web site and the ReplayFX site before finding a link on the Pinside forums to the broadcast. I know overhead announcements are tough in the convention center but there has to be someway to communicate when the main stage is active; not sure if using the ReplayFX app will allow notifications, if optional text blasts are a way to go or if just posting on Twitter when various finals or important rounds are starting would be enough. I was not competing in the main tournament but would have liked to know when to go watch the main stage action for the various finals.

    I did notice the stage next to the Toon computer game (I believe for music performances) was empty the entire day with just a plain ReplayFX logo on the huge screen. Perhaps that can show the broadcast feed during the tournaments when it is not being used?

    It was a fun show and maybe next year i will try to actually get a spot to compete. Loved meeting and talking with pinballers from around the globe and the Pinsiders I ran in to were all very nice. Pittsburgh was a great city to walk around in and was a huge difference from New England!

    Quoted from Sleepy:

    I was wondering about how this worked and think there should be more transparency about this. Before I go any further, I want to let you know that I have never played in any tournaments before and currently have no stake in this at all.
    I believe that the top players should definitely receive an automatic entry in the tournament. I find it crazy that it is possible the defending champ Keith Elwin wouldn't be able to play next year because he didn't refresh his browser quick enough to get tickets.
    For example, I think almost everybody would be happy with a system where the top 40 players in the A division automatically qualify to purchase tickets for the following year.
    I am assuming players like the Sharpe brothers, Keith Elwin, etc. might fall under the "helping the event" category, but obviously am not privy to this type of information, which I have no problem with. The top players and influential pinball people have done more than I will ever be able to do for the pinball community.
    My wife and I had a great time and am thankful for all the work done by the organizers of this event.

    At the very least the top 8 A finalists and the top four finalists in the other divisions should be guaranteed the right to get a ticket to the following years tournament.
