The 10th Visual Pinball Gaming League has come to an end.

Great effort by Wob to take first place in only the 2nd VPGL he has competed in and managing to take the win on 6 of the 10 tables throughout the competition.
Dedrok finishing in 2nd place after 3 table wins
JustAnotherRat finished in 3rd with some competitive scores throughout but not taking any table wins.
Jed moved into 4th with a win on the final game of the competition nudging out Capp

This was, as always, a fun competition and was great throughout not only for the fun on playing (virtual) pinball but for the banter throughout.

Thanks to everyone that posted a score throughout the compeition. It would be great if defender1980 could visit skids more often to get some more games in.

Has the scoring system changed ? maybe it did at some stage and i didn't notice.

used to be this:

1- 25
2 - 20
3 - 16
4 - 13
5 - 11
6 - 10

then down a point each time from 7th place.

No idea why it changed but it seems to have changed after VPGL6.

VPGL7, VPGL8 & VPGL9 was on the scoring system that has been applied in VPGL10

Ok cool.

A couple of things about this though is first place gets a lot more points than 2nd place and that just means edy slips out of sight even more quickly 😁

the podium place of third doesn't have much advantage over 4th just a single point.

Not saying i want to change it just a point of view.

The scoring I've used, may not be the same as Skids then, I haven't looked back to confirm but I have:
1st: 25
2nd: 20
3rd: 15
4th: 10
5th: 9
6th: 8
7th: 7
8th: 6
9th: 5
10th: 4
11th: 3
12th: 2
13th: 1

...and Edy still slips away quickly.

- - - Updated - - -

It wouldn't be too hard to work it out with different scoring methods and see what changes.

Iíll concede you this win Jed if you like before I go play more game.

Iíve never much liked Indy as a game but remember breaking it years ago on early versions. The game stopped after I got the billion to roll over 10b and it stuck at 9.4b.

2 weeks of play left, and i expected you to roll this ☺ so it's not able to be rolled then? I think we're in the wrong thread btw.

At the close of Game 2 Dedrok extends his lead, Jed jumps to second place (and currently has a strangle hold on Game 3). Third place is a close one with Capp, Wob and JustAnotherRat all equal.

All places are still up for grabs this early in the competition.

JustAnotherRat
27th March 2018, 07:33 AM
With a correction to the scores on Wizard, Capp is outright 3rd place with Wob and JustAnotherRat sitting in equal 4th.

JustAnotherRat
2nd April 2018, 10:17 AM
With Indiana Jones crashing, Dedrok didn't get to dominate game 3 and instead left him in 4th place for this game however he hangs onto his 1st place overall.

Wob takes out game 3 and places himself in 2nd overall.

JustAnotherRat managed a 2nd place in the game and is trying to keep with the competition leaders sitting in 4th.

Jed took and early lead in game 3 and looked set to hold on but for some last day submissions bumping him to 3rd in the game and 3rd overall.

Who will Rule the Kingdom and take out game 4? Who will say Hasta la vista, baby on game 5? Games 4 and 5 are currently open with 5 more games to start.

I thought the progress with actual submitted scores might be of interest to some.

JustAnotherRat
30th April 2018, 12:25 PM
After game 7 closes with some impressive scores submitted Dedrok clings to an overall 1st place by just 1 point after Wob has taken the win on the last 3 games.

Who is going to win the last 3 games and who will win overall???

Wob now has a 4 point lead in 1st. Dedrok sits in 2nd with JustAnotherRat in third. This competition is now a 2 horse race with no one in a position to reach the top 2. Will Dedrok fight back or has Wob got him covered? 2 games left to complete to find out.

Correction, Jed is in 3rd.

At least until you submit a score for the latest two games :p

JustAnotherRat
14th May 2018, 08:56 AM
With game 9 now closed Wob has stretched his lead and has all but claimed victory for this league. Dedrok looks set take 2nd place being out of reach of all others. JustAnotherRat still clinging to 3rd despite some close competition with Capp and Jed battling it out.

Final scores and rundown in the OP.

21st May 2018, 02:05 PM
Thanks to everyone that played, super surprised to get the win, pretty sure I put in WAY more hours than anyone else with this round, it really showed in my scores.

I think I beat my PB on pretty much every table (at least the ones I had already played), in most cases my previous PB's were not in the ballpark.

I do enjoy being pushed in this comp, and despite the feeling that pushing for a HS makes the tables feel a drag at times I do enjoy the challenge of trying to mastering each table.

Looking forward to the next comp and seeing Dedrok return on all cylinders ;)

Well done Wob !

half the battle is putting in the time, everyone has busy schedules. and you played great on all tables, put the time in and got a well deserved win. Congrats!

I reckon next comp we should scare up a perpetual trophy.

well done Wob on the win. Some real impressive scores on all the tables from everyone and something for me to aim towards to be just as good. Only 1 point in it for me and you skids. Thanks so much guys for letting me join you I have really loved this tournament and cant wait for the next one.

It’s a bit of fun, and good to get you installing one tables you normally wouldn’t play.

Congrats to Wob - well played. I'd duck my head in occasionally and really missed the comp, banter and the help playing games. So many times wanted to join but it was probably a good thing. Sunday night is my fav time to play and chill out.
Can the next one be late June at the earliest? Got a 15 year old turning 16, my birthday and those blasted renos LOL

I never say no so I'd still be in. The only negative thing I think, is that this comp the games were nominated and then voted for by those playing so it should in theory mean we played what was most wanted by the competitors.

We choose the games and then complain about them anyway so I guess it makes no difference.

You're right, we're a pack of whingers [emoji38]

Just another reason why a pre 90's, SS and EM comp would be cool in the future sometime [emoji3]

For now i gotta slide back into the cockpit and progress my years long GRID career. Now there's a feckin' grind...
