From my perspective, this looks like a flaw that will discourage some people from coming out to launch party tournaments that are interested in points:
We just had a WWE launch party. There were 20 participants. I won, and received .47 points. The rules were you could try to win from 7pm - 12am with a maximum of 5 entries. No playoffs or finals.
Now, let's look at the SUPERleague from March. "Shirley Wong" played one game of Walking Dead and got 6.5 million. She came in 180th place, yet got more IFPA points (.49) than I did for coming in 1st in the WWE tournament.
I'm sorry, but I demonstrated considerable more skill in the WWE tournament than Shirley did playing one game of the Walking Dead and getting 6.5 million. This is discouraging to those of us that look at the IFPA as a way of charting our growth and progress as competitive pinball players.
