Yea, unfortunately that's how we voted on them. I do have a better idea to really mix it up next time. And I'll do a premiere division and B-division next time too. That'll be next year for the women's World Cup. Until then, get ready for another MM v AFM battle lol

#104 4 months ago

Damn. I was rooting for DI, technically only lost by 3 votes (difference was actually 5, but had 3 people picked DI instead, DI wins by 1). MM had a remake and that propelled them to victory.

I agree that IJ losing to MB is an upset, but that's part of the fun. If the winners were obvious, nobody would vote.

Great job organizing this eskaybee!

Sorry for the delay; with work and watching real World Cup, its been a busy day. Tallying up votes now and getting the finals and consolation match setup. But yea, looking like an MM v AFM final. I usually notice a big chunk of the votes come in right away, and then usually get another 2-8 votes or so every time the thread bumps up.

#117 4 months ago

We made it to the FINALS!!! Vote here:

No surprises in this world cup. But this will be a heavy weight bout between Pinsides top 2 games as well as CGC's 2 best remakes. Enjoy the final; don't forget to vote for the consolation 3rd place match as well as the bonus question in the poll. Voting ends Saturday in which i'll post results and then we can all enjoy the real world cup final Sunday morning. Thanks to everyone for participating. P.S- Stay tuned for another world cup of pinball next year as the womens world cup kicks off; and i have many a lot of ideas to make things much more interesting that shouldn't result in such a predictable final! It will be a no holds barred world cup of pinball next year, i guarantee it.

No fair, AFM took a dive and drew a red card from MM. Fixed.

Merci SKB pour tout votre travail!

Great stuff!!! epic battles, with the expected titles pulling through.....fun stuff....thank you!!!

#132 4 months ago

Next time... do a group/bracket with all the Star Treks... curious which would win on that one.
I'd guess Stern... but maybe STNG?

Ouch. That would be a very difficult bracket. I’d hate to vote because now, I’d pick the Stern. But over the course of pinball, I’d probably have to vote for TNG. But I think I like the Stern better than I did TNG back then... F it, it’s a draw.

And as for AFM winning, I think it deserved it. I’ve always enjoyed playing AFM more than playing MM. And to me, that is the way I try to judge games. How I feel when my fingers are on the flipper buttons.

I'm really happy for AFM but El-Toro is the best game of all time.....Of all Time....
