Quoted from mizary:
Anyone have a link to the final standings? I know the final 4 in mains were the Rosas and Trent and ?, and I know that Trent won. I know they will eventually show up on ifpa site. But I am also curious about the payouts. There was some finals info on https://www.pbchallenge.net/lax/ but the site doesn't seem to be working now. And the YAPSS app only has qualifying info.
I know 9-16 in Classics finals got $100. And 5-8 in B division got $50.
What did Trent get for winning? I wonder how much money they took in. Wish you could see voided entries like in the INDISC system. But overall the YAPSS app and system worked great - no issues at all.
Was a great show. This was the biggest tourney I'd ever played in. I loved the Classics - I'd never played in a Classics tourney before. The main bank chewed me up. Especially that TWD machine. I regret giving up on it. Wish I'd bought at least 3 more entries just so I could have had another chance at that game. I played it 4 times and got 11m 5m 5m and 18m. Had Prison MB lit on TWO of those attempts, once even on ball two and failed to start it. heh. Only had one well walker MB which is how I got my 18m. I am fine with doing poorly on games like Atlantis which I didn't know at all. But TWD? I know I can crush that game.
And finally thanks to everyone that helped make this tourney happen. The PAPA guys, the score keepers, techs, etc. The show ran smooth as silk and everyone I can in contact with was super nice and helpful. This was the most fun 4 days of pinball in my life. Let's see if pinburgh can top it!
Finals brackets are at the link above. Click results, then finals, then the second "Main A" (the first one is no good). They did not/have not put in any data from the final 4 match. The new software worked well but was a bit hard to navigate through. I was told it was PAPA's proprietary software and this was it's first time being used. A div finishing order was Trent, Rosa Sr., Myself(Chris Warren), Rosa Jr. I don't know the other prizes but 3rd place was $500.
That TWD had zero ball saver and an extremely tight tilt. No wonder scores were so low. I had a 30M score that was like 9th after the first day of qualifying. I eventually got 88M, a score that seems laughable until you realize it was 13th best for the whole weekend of qualifying. They slightly loosened the tilt just before the first round of finals on Saturday night. Players were still giving warnings to the following players.
