Nice picks for the lineups. Excited for PAPA this year!

#3 4 years ago

Very excited for B and Seniors. Woot!

Just noticed BSD in both A and B banks. Nice.

#4 4 years ago

really wish this was not on the same weekend as MGC. I was hoping to make it back for PAPA this year.

Fingers crossed it wont conflict in future years. Have fun and good luck to all those attending.

#5 4 years ago

I see Avengers finally made it into A division. They used it at LAX a couple weeks ago too. Great to see the new code fixed the scoring dominance!

#6 4 years ago

Looking forward to watching the strategy the A players have with the new Avengers code.

#7 4 years ago

I think I'm going for the first time. Probably go into division c. Iron man, tz and nf!

#8 4 years ago

papa and pinburgh trump everything. doesnt matter if they fall on other dates. pinburgh is the best all out show and tourney and papa is the other best tourney. both with the highest payouts of any tourney.
any "show" or tourney should schedule around those 2 events.

The return of "Attack from the Back" mini tourney. Oh BABY!!

Definitely sounds interesting from how they described it

My lady and I are thinking of making a drive from Philly to PAPA 19 to check it out and wanted to know what it's like to attend as a spectator. I assume we can get into HQ to watch the tourny, but are there things to do inside such as play some games on free play, visit a vendor marketplace, etc.? Or is that exclusively done at ReplayFX in July and the April sessions are strictly tourny play and that's it.

If anyone can provide some insight that would be great.

Thanks!

#12 4 years ago

There is no admission fee you can come and go as you please.

All games are on token drop. There will be 400+ pins available for play.

No vendors at PAPA, as we don't really have the space inside the building because it is jammed with pins and vids!

Oh yeah, and there are tournaments for all skill levels of folks.

As a local (Grew up in Collegville) who's gone for 4 years as a spectator, it's a great time to play plenty of practice machines and meet a lot of great people and players. I'll be there.

Could this post be classified under Events? I couldn't find it at first and thought there wasn't a thread yet for PAPA.

Looking forward to hitting the games! Look out B Division...

#18 4 years ago

World pinball championships and "SUPER AWESOME EXCLUSIVE PINBALL AND VIDEO ARCADE THAT IS ALMOST NEVER OPEN"

Try that subject line next time.

My lady and I are leaving Thursday for a little road trip to visit PAPA Thursday/Friday. I'd love to see some of the comps going down and obviously play a bunch of games myself. I hope this can be done.

I checked the PAPA site and it looks like they're open from 9am - 12am midnight Thursday and Friday. http://papa.org/competitions/papa-world-championships/papa-19-world-championships/

They are also open Wed from 9am-10pm for the circuit final if anyone is getting in town early.

#22 4 years ago

Depending on travel time might just head out to the Papa facility for some practice.

#23 4 years ago

is the PAPA Circuit Final going to be streamed at all?

#24 4 years ago
Quoted from MagicMako:

The plans are to stream the ladder portion of the circuit final.

#25 4 years ago

Anyone know if the brackets will be online?

#26 4 years ago
Quoted from ninjadoug:

Can you post a link to where it will be streamed? I'm assuming the stream will be archived as well?

Best of luck to everyone that gets to attend and play!

#27 4 years ago

Are live standings of the first two rounds posted anywhere?

#28 4 years ago
Quoted from LOTR_breath:

Circuit finals is what I was asking about...

Stream has gotta be https://www.twitch.tv/papatvpinball

#29 4 years ago

Update: Bracket is up!

Edit: forgot the link - http://www.papa.org/live/playerIndex.php?bracketId=101

#30 4 years ago

If you weren't nerdy enough to sit around and watch the circuit final today - you should at least hit this video and jump to about 3:37:39 and watch Elwin blow GOT's mind on Hand of the King.

That was sick. He had to have known about that scoring bug, right?? (not that he needed it)

#34 4 years ago
Quoted from aobrien5:

Yeah, he explained it on the microphone earlier in the broadcast.

#35 4 years ago
Quoted from WaddleJrJr:

Yup, he was commentating during the ladder phase before he joined the ladder (as a higher seed), and gave the whole world -- or at least those watching -- the insight on how it worked. And ended up being a prelude to exactly what he was going to do.

His obliteration of HOTK was the Red Wedding of pinball.

Well played.

#37 4 years ago

Hm. Guess I need to watch this too.

#38 4 years ago
Quoted from aobrien5:

I'm surprised the commentators hadn't ever seen that before. I did that back to back in the semi finals and finals at state on GOT for 10.3 and 10.8 billion. In super league play one of the guys here hit a HOTK hurry up jackpot for 9.4 billion alone, which was absolutely disgusting. Keith played it perfectly letting the ball drain on ball 1 to make sure he had his add a ball for HOTK to help ensure he could max out those shots. I'm sure they will do something about that scoring. I've gone through Iron Throne completely and only got 3.6 billion for the beating the wizard mode, but you can hit single shots in HOTK that are worth that much or more which is kind of odd.

Is PAPA streaming today? If so, what time does it start? Would really like a distraction at work

Have they streamed qualifying any other year? I can't remember.

#41 4 years ago

During yesterday's broadcast they only mentioned streaming the finals on Sunday, no mention of qualifying.

They have streamed qualifying in years past but it's kinda random.

#42 4 years ago

Seems odd that with all of that equipment, they couldn't just stream. I know it's probably all hands on deck to actually make qualifying run smooth, but it would nice to just be able to watch a machine or two being played throughout the day.

#43 4 years ago

Last year they streamed Saturday evening late when qualifying was wrapping up.

#44 4 years ago
Quoted from ZenTron:

Correct. In years' past, the final hour or so of qualifying Saturday night has been streaming.

#45 4 years ago

Standings now showing Dave Stewart had a 14 billion GOT game? Is it me, or does this scoring issue/bug/whatever sound as bad as that one on WOZ that everyone tried to hide, or the Prime Directive 3 exploit from Stern Star Trek?

#46 4 years ago

Thanks to pointing to the spot in the video where a really interesting event happened, but without ruining the ending. I watched the whole thing because it was pinball, but that event was just crazy.

BTW, I hate it when I haven't had a chance to watch a weekend stream for a major event and check the forum Monday morning and there's a big "Contrats XYZ on winning ABC" thread. A less spoiled thread title would be nice.

You have to enact an information embargo, just as you'd have to do with any other major competition. Regular sports = no TV, radio or spots/news sites. Pinball = no forums. Not realistic to expect everyone to keep mum on the results just because one or two people missed the livestream....

just like anything anything these days. Tv Show, Sports, Music, kids playing in the park...if it can be spoiled some assholes love it.

I stay off Facebook because I know I'll see it posted there, but I tend to find Pinside to be safe (as long as I stay off competition related threads). The only time I had an issue was with the US National Championships.

#50 4 years ago

But this isn't a case of assholes spoiling... it's just people talking about what happened. I disagree that people should censor thread titles and watch what they're saying just because a few people haven't seen the big event yet. It's up to the stragglers to embargo themselves.
