Got third in the pinball tournament, which I'm pretty happy with because it was pretty much all experienced players save for one. It was a match play event with swiss pairings and if you lose three times you're out. I lost my first, won my second, then lost my third, so it was do or die the rest of the way. The way swiss pairings work is you get matched up with other players with a similar win/loss record, so from then on out, I was playing fools who also had two losses, thunderdome-style. I sent four fools in a row to stay in contention.
I was playing for 3rd/2nd when I had to play my homie TJ (one of the guys who runs CA Extreme), and he took me down on KISS. I didn't play bad but when you get to the final rounds you have to be dominant and I just put up a so-so score. He was also doing pretty mediocre but since he was second player, he knew what he needed to shoot to beat me and worked the flow.
All this was going on as the Warriors had just won the Finals. Pretty crazy, but lots of fun.
Looks like i'm not the only one having issues loading pics. I've found that on first post it doesn't work. If you edit, delete pic and reload the pic, then click on "finished editing" it works the second time (at least, does for me). Seems like the server issues haven't quite been sorted yet.
