  • [QLD] - Brisbane Pinball Club

    Happy new year to all and welcome to 2020!

    Due to popular demand, the Brisbane Pinball Club @ Netherworld will be continuing as FORTNIGHTLY meets in 2020, starting Tuesday January 21st.
    Entry fee for each meet will remain at $15 per player.
    There is one small change to qualifying, which has now been changed to start from 3pm onwards. Finals format is slightly different in 2020, where Matchplay will be used to determine finals matches.

    *Qualifying opens from 3pm each meet.
    *10 games will be selected at random. Each player plays 1 game on each machine in 'Herb style' qualifying. Top 16 players on points will advance to finals.
    *Ties for 16th place will result in a single game playoff, on a machine to be chosen by a random draw. Ties all other placings after qualifying will be broken according to the highest individual game point score.

    **Please note that no qualifying games may commence after 9pm.**

    *Top 16 players (or top 50% if less than 32 players) will be seeded according to their final qualifying placing. Each finals match will be contested as a Best of 3 game, single elimination match.
    *Matchplay will determine the matches to be played according to the brackets on the software.
    *Highest seed of the match can choose the machine OR play order for the first game, with the opponent choosing the other. Play order alternates each game.
    *There will be a 3rd place playoff after the semi final, which will take place at the same time as the Final match. The winner will be the last remaining player in the competition.

    Ties for results in the finals will be broken according to player's qualifying position. Higher qualifier will assume the higher place finish.


    The Brisbane Pinball Club is designed to have to a friendly, social atmosphere at each event, in which we abide by IFPA rules and regulations. We have seen a great number of new players join the pinball community in previous years and we would like to keep it that way. We also understand that in a pub/club type environment, things can get a bit crowded & loud. However, if any players are seen to display excessive disruptive behaviour, including verbal abuse, swearing or machine abuse (rage tilting, slamming lockdown bars, etc.), you will be risking disqualification and/or removal from the tournament. The tournament director's decision is final. The venue also has the right to take discretion wherever they see fit.

    * Magic Castle
    * Dungeons and Dragons

    Batman & Addams Family are currently experiencing issues, and will not be included in the game list this fortnight.

            Well done [MENTION=17496]Michi[/MENTION] for winning the first Club comp of the year!

            That's a good thing we didn't have to use the backup as both flipper buttons were sticky by the end of the night...

            Also what about machines picked up by players not even showing up at the event? Especially when it's Creature and you qualify last on it :-D

              A public flogging would be in order, I would think. At the very least!

              May the pinballs tumble in your direction!

                  Hello all!

                  Tomorrow night, we do it all again at Netherworld for our 2nd Brisbane Pinball Club meet for 2018. Last fortnight's winner was Michi Henning - will he be able to make it 2 from 2, or will someone else step up and take top spot?

                  Qualifying begins anytime from 4pm, with last games to finish at approx. 8.30pm. $15 entry per player, 8 games plus finals for Top 16 (min. 32 players to play). Netherworld will also be having their burger & chips special for $15 for all BPC players tomorrow night.

                  It's now time to choose the machines we will play for tomorrow night, but this time there will be a little twist:

                  1) Players who got a choice of machine last fortnight cannot choose the same machine this month.
                  2) Players can only choose 1 machine.
                  3) Netherworld staff, machine suppliers (ie. David, Hugh & Grant), and tournament organisers/assistants (myself, Chris) are ineligible to make a choice.

                  Last month's picks:
                  CFTBL - Marcus Wicke
                  Demo Man - Michelle Riding
                  D&D - Steven Riding
                  Grand Lizard - Nick Rusis
                  Magic Castle - Chris Jennings
                  Medieval Madness - Thibaut Allender
                  Stingray - David James
                  The Walking Dead - Nicolas Noben

                  This week's game list includes:
                  * Swords of Fury
                  * Demolition Man
                  * Ghost Busters
                  * Creature From The Black Lagoon
                  * Stingray
                  * Star Wars
                  * Magic Castle
                  * Dungeons and Dragons
                  * Medieval Madness (Remake)
                  * The Walking Dead
                  * Twilight Zone
                  * Spiderman VE
                  * Batman '66
                  * The Addams Family

                  Happy choosing and see you all tomorrow night!
