Quoted from ForceFlow:
Well, someone could always start a "Local Flipper Pinball Association"
I did. The Universal Player Yearly Organized United Ranking System. Got a website and everything.
Inactive right now. I'm not currently running any events.
When I was running events. It was designed to reward active participants. I kept track of the top 42. You got a point for entering the event, and a point for winning. Then on days like the New Year's Day pinball tournament. I had a separate tournament for 12 to 15 of the top point holders.
That way I could reward players who came to my events regularly. And encourage those that didn't come often, to maybe get in more.
