Congrats to Season 11 winners (left to right) 4th place: Aaron Nelson, 1st place: Per Schwarzenberger, 2nd: Luke Baxter and 3rd: Mike Miller CA. Our B-Division was won by Echa Schneider who had the best record at 8-2 in the Round Robin matchups with the 11 B-Division players.
Welcome to Season 11! Since I have been swamped with life I am going to leave February the same format as January/Season 10. All locations are available for play all month long and are listed below. Players with 50% or more of qualifying games that count will count in the tournament. So this month six (6) machines count so you have to play three or else you won’t be counted in the tournament results submission at all.
Coaching is again allowed during play so you can help each other out and say what’s lit and what to go for. This is primarily to encourage new folks who are learning pinball and since it is a selfie league it’s hard to police it anyhow so coach away!
You can play any time starting on February 1st, 2017.
You also must submit scores within 48-hours of playing and at the end of the season the deadline for submitting is an hour after the season closes so if you don’t submit by then, your score may not be counted (this pertains only to games you might be playing up until 11:59pm on Feb. 28th, 2016). 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.
Everyone who plays at least 3-games will make playoffs this season!
Season 11: 2/1/17 – 2/28/17 – Top 6 scores/games included – choose from:
- Buzzworks: Game Show, Guns’n’Roses, Black Rose, Ghostbusters
- Alamo Drafthouse: Wizard of Oz, The Big Lebowski, Pinball Magic
- Gestalt: The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Iron Man
- The Myriad: Cirqus Voltaire, Theatre of Magic, Twilight Zone

PLAYOFFS: Sunday March 12, 2017 @ Gestalt @ 1:00pm – everyone who submits scores on three different machines is eligible for the playoffs. Like Season 10 we will have an initial round to break down the players into A and B Divisions and the top four will get a bye.
Live standings will always be available on the MatchPlay.events website here!
As far as rules of play, we will follow the joint IFPA/PAPA ruleset. Full rules are posted at this link – all players are responsible to know the rules so if you are unsure about something, check that rules page as rules updates may occur which you will be responsible for… Also Eric Wagensonner is also an official so you can consult him for rulings as well.
