So here's the deal!

- Post your best score to this thread between now and midnight CST Sunday May 12.
- Feel free to post it any time, and if you beat your own score just edit the post to update it.
- Include a photo of the endgame which shows your score and your character
- If you're a streamer and have a recording of your game, by all means include a YouTube link! We'd love to see how you achieved your amazing score. Just highlight it to the posted game only, please (not the full multi-hour stream.)
- If anything noteworthy or cool happened, please feel free to mention it! Wizard modes, 666666 multiball, whatever was awesome about your game. Brag about your mad skills!

Once the contest closes I'll make a followup post to congratulate the winners by category.

This is just for fun, folks - this is not a serious, militant, everything must be exactly the same, point-pressing tournament.

The settings I personally like to use are:

- 0.99 software
- All defaults
- 5 second ball save on
- Special configured to Extra Ball (because who needs a free game?)

If you prefer different settings, just note what you changed. Maybe we'll group the results by ball save / no ball save, etc.

Have fun everyone!

Good idea! I'll be down for this when the machine gets here. Maybe virtual tournaments via Twitch Squad feature? Once those get rolled out wider. Looking forward to participating here in a couple weeks.

#3 6 months ago

Not to overcomplicate it, but might be worth looking into:

#4 6 months ago

I’m game. I’ve been looking for a reason to reset my scores and turn extra balls off.

#5 6 months ago

Just had 5 sub 100k games...won't be posting those lol.

#6 6 months ago

I extended the deadline through Sunday by request!

Excellent! I need an entire weekend to improve.

#8 6 months ago

Guess I will go first

666666 and Fountain wizard mode, default with 5 second ball save and special as noted in rules.

Oh I'm in. This will be fun since I just got the update done and my autolauncher working better ... Not great but better than yesterday.
Update: my auto launcher is working perfectly now! Turned out it was the wire ramp!! Also, a separate issue, Tortuga vuk was loose!
Update: Since it is a pirate game we should post high gold total

Sorry CE editions can't join the tourney.

1st and only game on the new .99 code installed today, something must be working!

Ok... I don't want to participate anymore.

Quoted from bemmett:something must be working!

Well maybe I should try redownloading and reinstalling.... GG!

#13 6 months ago

I haven’t had time to play but I am working on it tomorrow for sure! Really exciting to see some great scores already!

#14 6 months ago

I was doing "random character select" and after ~6 games came away with this.

I keep getting greedy with the gold focused characters and building a largeish (~150-200) pot of gold, then draining ball 3 without having partied in Tortuga

But that is the joy of the random character select I guess . Thankfully Mr. Swan did not come up (that is the only groaner in single play).

#15 6 months ago

Well here is my first entry. I am definitely trying to beat it before the cutoff but wanted to get something on the board!

I had 5 multiballs running at one point. Managed to get one extra ball.

#16 6 months ago

Default settings (No ball save), Extra balls enabled, and I did get one or two of them. Biggest take away from this game is a chapter score high champ of 449k. Caught a recording of it but haven’t uploaded it yet.

Boy character selection certainly impacts the game. Tried to select some oddball ones but never really scored well.

Here is Davy Jones...absolutely nothing great about this game. One extra ball.

I have a spreadsheet going with each character score so I can just play the ones that no one has

Not really.

Not really.

I would be surprised if this is not tracked in more detail than you will need in the service menu. It seems like every stat imaginable is there.

#20 6 months ago

Next submission. Same settings as before (default no ball save) Wizard modes 1 and 3 reached but not completed. Argh frenzy twice and something like 4-5 extra balls (map awards were really gracious). New personal best!

YouTube proof! (Still uploading as of this post but should be done in about an hour)

Some good scores, biggest variable not mentioned in rules is Outlane post setup. Game much easier with them closed up.

Everyone is running as built?

#22 6 months ago

Good point. I’ve been running with rubbers on both E lane posts. I lane post is as built.

Lol i changed to wide out lanes for this.

#25 6 months ago

I'm running the I and L lane in default. I have not moved the posts though I have definitely wanted to!

The I lane is a real SOB!

I swear it’s magnetic.

... and despite my multiple requests. He is a man of honor; I would have moved that I-lane post after a couple of days

Pretty poor. Though not much lower than my "high" score.

OH yeah, there are per character scores in the game tracked, I was meaning for this thread.

There will be a friendly award for that

#34 6 months ago

OK, I threw down a quick score.. haven't fixed some of the problems yet (still no right ship spinner scoring, no I didn't cause this issue on my own heh).

Thanks! Been slowly trying to improve my stream setup over time. Glad I was able to finally capture a GC on this machine on camera. Finally broke my curse of GCs only happening during test games.

#36 6 months ago

Any high gold totals out there?

Thinking I got one more game in me tonight....not sure though....been into the rum a scontch. Its a pirates night for me!

No, fate was not with me and my games were terrible.

Aw man, that sucks... Maybe it's performance anxiety, and another go sans audience later will give you better luck.

I tuned in 15 minutes late, and had issues playing the broadcast on my phone. Seems to be an issue with their app for me as of late.

You sorta get screwed on the skill shot if you get stranger tides multiball.

#46 6 months ago

Just under five hours to go before the cutoff!

Upgrade to .99 Friday. Was kicking ash and getting a bunch of MBs then had to leave to see Avengers.
Saturday couldn’t do anything: started getting those chapter drains. Since then it seems like the game is back to brutal.

Here’s some from tonight. Unfortunately my best game lost a ball on ball one during MB on the ledge behind the BP. Had to shut it down.
Had a good game of Bootstrap going had an EB and right at the start, started a chapter and SDTM.
Hopefully there will be improved lost ball rules in the updates (unless there is a setting I don’t know about)
