    Quoted from Marvin:

    It, under the new rules, effectively funnels money from local tournaments to Josh and his elite level friends who play in the nationals. Otherwise, not too much to offer.

    What a shitty way to mislead people about the IFPA.
    Seems how 75% of the 1$ stays in the State that events are played in, going to the 16 top players in that state.
    But I guess all those 16 Ohio players are Josh's elite buddies tooo?

    The IFPA endorsement is something that can or can't be a benefit to an event.
    Players enjoy points and competing, and always want a way to evaluate how they are doing, it provides that.
    If your plyers don't care, then don't bother with it.

    They are not really there to do your Promotion work, or automatically boost your event, not sure where one gets that idea.
    The reason events are graded on caliber of players is because that's how it should fairly be done. Pretty sure it is modeled after the PGA structures that rank Golfers. It really makes no sense to give people free points just for playing each other if nobody is any good, and isn't fair to players that compete in tougher events.

    Anyway, let's get the same gripers here again rehashing their tired complaints, as Levi noted.
    Nobody had a bad word to say about IFPA before, when Josh and company were doing all this for free.
    But take a dollar, and then return it to the players, oh my!!

    Quoted from CrazyLevi:

    Instead of practicing to get better, or just accepting that they are a B player for life, it's easier for self-identifying scrub types to come up with some imaginary grand conspiracy involving the Free Masons, the mysterious and secretive offspring of D Gottlieb, and a shadowy cabal of former and current champions known as the Shatz/Stetta Alliance - all designed to siphon money from the proletariat and into the pockets of the "elite."
    Competitive pinball isn't for everybody, and clearly, given the hysterical reaction by some to this measly nominal fee, it shouldn't be. That's why you can do it WITHOUT the auspices of the IFPA. But if you are gonna stay in the system you really should treat it with a little more respect and fewer histronics. It's hard to take some of this criticism seriously.

    That's solid gold right there Levi!!!
    I take great comfort in knowing the IFPA fee is NOT going away!
    But I'm too elite and buddy-buddy to be listened to.
    Funny that is the naysayers best they can do...
    You're too good, and stand to benefit from Joe House Balls dollar!!!

    Quoted from fattdirk:

    I wish I wouldn't have ever created this thread. Can't we all just get along. It's supposed to be fun.

    Don't be sorry fattdirk, it just shows the polarity of the issue.
    In the end, it's simply a choice to be IFPA or not, and a choice to play in those events or not.
