Nofsky is out. First two tables were enough to turn him off the competition. To be honest I will play a game or two to get a score myself.

I thought the same myself, a real shame that the first two unfortunately I think were probably the worst games of the whole pool of 25 or so Vp10 games. (no offence to the nominators!)

Tell your mate it's fine to come and go ? He can just choose to play games he likes, I treat the Arcade comp (MGL) a bit like this at times, just can't be arsed grinding away on games that are no fun.

Dracula is really fun though, it's onwards and upwards! :D

Anyone nominates a bad playing table is deducted 5 points. [emoji1306]

I hear Dracula plays good. [emoji3]

We should work at fixing ones like Sopranos, that was way worse than any vp9 table.

Sopranos played terribly but I don't mind NGG. I think it plays pretty well.

I actually find Dracula doesn't play well on my cab, not sure why I'll have to see if I can work it out.

Yeah, I think Dracula isn't that well optimised. Sometimes I get a few seconds of microstutter, but it goes away and then plays perfectly.

I think it's because of the very high res playfield, I remember Bord the table author mentioned the PF was very high quality ?

My score only looks good as I was the only idiot that persevered with that Sopranos table. Man, that was painful.

I shouldn't get too many chances to play over the next couple of weeks as I should be going through making sure everything is ready for Pinfest.

I just started to learn myself at building and on an original no less which I think is harder.

I am down to 1 real pinball now (Pin*Bot) after selling the Magic Castle.

But I find I play more VP than anything since VP10 !

I would love to have some more pinballs, but I don't have the space or the $.

I could fit 25 pinballs in my Mrs Dance Studio in the backyard if I won Lotto. But I never buy a ticket and would like to keep my Mrs :)

Dedrok continues to show his dominance :071:
Wob moves up into 2nd fighting with JustAnotherRat who is now in 3rd swordfight
Jed remains consistent and overtakes Acejas and further closes the gap to JustAnotherRat. Will Jed catch him? :117:
Acejas is closely behind Jed and will be looking to hunt those in front down :063:
The rest of the competition is extremely close... who will push hardest and gain the most? :unsure

This competition is far from over, but can anyone take the fight to Dedrok? :fight.thumb:

With Congo now finished time for an update....

This is the half way point so the potential for massive position changes is still there.

Dedrok takes the familiar 25 points for the table win and stretches his lead overall.

JustAnotherRat makes a very late submission (after getting his VPin home from Pinfest and setting it up after going out for dinner for one last bash before the game closed) jumping ahead of Wob and Acejas on the Congo scoreboard and moves back in front of Wob in the arm wrestle for 2nd place.

Wob put up what was a very respectable score but his late submission wasn't enough to change is position in the table rankings and leaving him in 3rd place overall.

AceJas closing the gap on 3rd place overall and stretches the gap back to Jed in 5th.

Thanks mate... it was choice catching up. Some of the "Pinfestians" didn't want to give it a try as they have played virtual pinball's before and there is always flipper lag.... once they had a crack at mine they were pleasantly surprised... It's a shame some weren't willing to have a game. Most people wouldn't believe that it nudged either without buttons and were shocked when the ball got stuck and I nudged the table to get the ball back.

Overall... seemed to be a lot of positive feedback and a lot of fun

With just 2 more tables to complete the biggest battle is for 4th and 5th with Jed and AceJas amd both of them chasing Wob in 4th. Dedrok is practically untouchable in first place and it looks as though JustAnotherRat should be able to hold down 2nd.

I second this idea, if Dedrok is up for it at some stage in the new year. But screw the VP, I have seen pics of Edy's lineup, a real comp would be great! Some sort of weird format where we can handicap the host massively might work.
