Personally I’m not a big selfie guy, but we’re going to start our own Super Selfie League here in SF that’s a little different from some of the other Super Leagues you may have knowingly or unwittingly participated in.
What the hell is a super selfie league?
The way this league will work is that you have three or four separate weeks to compete. Each week you do have to complete during that week, but it’s open qualifying much like you may have done at CAX, INDISC, or other HERB format tournaments. If you don’t know what that means, it just means you can put in as many entries as you want while the tournament is open.
This is to encourage more location play and help the operators out and show locations that pinball can bring people in and hopefully help support those businesses (so buy beer, food or go bowling depending on the location, tip well, and please let the business know that you came to play b/c of Super Selfie Pinball League).
Also you will earn WPPRs (World Pinball Player Ranking Points) as this has been endorsed by the IFPA so if you aren’t already an internationally ranked pinball player, you will be afterwards!
The San Francisco Super Selfie League™ is open to everyone of all ages and skills (ages may be restricted by certain venues so check ahead!) Just like taking selfies? You can play pinball now AND still take your selfies! You will need a smart phone to take your Super Selfies with.
How /How much?
The best part about our inaugural season? It’s free to play aside from coin drop! Please please remember if you go to a location, please support them – if you only go and play pinball they may not enjoy what pinball brings and choose to get rid of machines or pull out of the SFSSL. And as you buy your beer or snack, do tell them you’re there because of the pinball!
To submit your scores, take a selfie with yourself and your score visible. You’ll be able to submit both your score and selfie straight into MatchPlay.events but you will first have to set up a free account.
Scores will be updated on MatchPlay.events as well as in the Facebook group (if you choose to include that – which we encourage as it’s a fun way to interact with others in the league and since often people may be doing their qualifying solo or on their lunch breaks when they should be working).
As far as rules of play, we will follow the joint IFPA/PAPA ruleset. Feel free to ask about any questions but generally, no bangbacks, death saves and any stuck balls should try and be freed, especially during a multiball. You may play extra balls but Buy-Ins are not allowed.
You can play any time during the weeks listed below starting on Wednesday March 23rd, 2016. Each week will have certain games available to play, of which a certain # of them will count (for every week but Week One, every machine must be played and submitted – if you don’t play a game it’s OK but you don’t really have a chance to win that particular week).
New Changes From Week 1! (updated 3/29/16)
You also must submit scores within 12-hours of playing and at the end of a week the deadline for submitting is an hour after the week closes so if you don’t submit by then, your score may not be counted. Note: Your game must FINISH before midnight so if you start a game at 11:55pm and it goes past midnight when you can finally take your selfie, that will not count for that week.
Finals will be at Brewcade and the top 16 will make a bracket where they will play PAPA style in groups of four with 4-2-1-0 scoring (3-games per round). The top two will advance each round of play until there is only one group of four left.
