      2017 Brisbane Masters

      We're still working on this for 2017, but save the date folks:
      Sat 22nd & Sun 23rd July, 2017.
      Already up and registered on IFPA site.

      There will be a side comp or two like last year, but will confirm at a later date.

      Welcome to the running of the 3rd Annual Brisbane Masters event, to be held on Friday 21st, Saturday 22nd & Sunday 23rd July, 2017. @Jimmi Nails & I are looking forward to the biggest edition of this event, including not one, not two, but THREE side comps on top of the Main Event to be held over the course of the weekend.


      THE VENUE:

      The Mill on Constance. 111 Constance St, Fortitude Valley, 4006. https://www.themillonconstance.com/
      Approx. 5-10 walk from Fortitude Valley train station and Netherworld.

      We have our own private room & bar for the weekend.


      DATES & TIMES:

      Friday 21st July
      7pm-11pm: 4-player 3-strikes comp @ 7pm

      Saturday 22nd July
      9am: Brisbane Masters qualifying, 6 rounds
      8pm: 3 Hour Flip Frenzy event @ completion of Masters qualifying (starting time may change slightly depending on finishing time of Masters qualifying.)

      Sunday 23rd July
      9am: Brisbane Masters finals, 5 rounds
      5pm: 3 Hour Flip Frenzy event @ completion of Masters final (starting time may change slightly depending on finishing time of Masters finals.)



      3 STRIKES

      Players will be able to pre-register, or register on the night from 6pm
      The tournament will start at 6.30pm and due to the nature of this type of event, late players won't be able to join.

      This event will be contested in 4 player groups, with groups to be chosen at random.
      3rd & 4th players in each game will earn a strike.
      Players will be eliminated from the tournament when they have gained 3 strikes.

      Cash prizes will be awarded for the Top 3 placings in this event.



      Qualifying will start at 9.30am on Saturday 22nd July. All 6 rounds will be played on Saturday. Anticipated finish time on Saturday will be approx. 7.30pm.
      Finals on Sunday will commence at 9.30am and should be finished by around 4-5pm.

      At this stage, we will not be putting a cap on numbers for this event, but if the number of players exceeds the number of machines available, then we may need to introduce one at a later date.


      * Once all participants are finalized, all players will be seeded based on their IFPA rankings position as of 30/6/2016.
      * The games chosen will be based on what is available at the Venue. (minimum 16 machines, list available soon)
      * Qualifying will be played similar to the IFPA World Format.

      Players will be placed into groups of 4 once the seedings have been completed. (4 player games)
      Each group will be assigned 3 games at random. Each game has the same points ... 7 for 1st, 5 for 2nd, 3 for 3rd, 1 for 4th

      First round groupings are as follows: (based on 68 players)
      1,34,35,68 .... 2,33,36,67 .... 3,32,37,66 .... 4,31,38,65 .... 5,30,39,64 .... 6,29,40,63 .... 7,28,41,62 .... 8,27,42,61 .... 9,26,43,60 ....
      10,25,44,59 .... 11,24,45,58 .... 12,23,46,57 .... 13,22,47,56 .... 14,21,48,55 .... 15,20,49,54 …. 16,19,50,53 .... 17,18,51,52

      From then on, groupings are determined from the scoring thereafter as follows:
      1,2,3,4 .... 5,6,7,8 .... 9,10,11,12 .... 13,14,15,16 .... 17,18,19,20 .... 21,22,23,24 .... 25,26,27,28 .... 29,30,31,32
      33,34,35,36 .... 37,38,39,40 .... 41,42,43,44 .... 45,46,47,48 .... 49,50,51,52 .... 53,54,55,56 .... 57,58,59,60 …. 61,62,63,64 .... 65,66,67,68

      All games will be played as a 4-player game (unless machine is unable to allow it).
      Highest placed seed will get to choose their play order for their first match and so on, until all 4 players have chosen.
      The following 2 matches will see the person with the lowest score in the previous game choosing their play order first, until all 4 players have chosen.

      There will be 6 qualifying rounds (18 games per player). The top 24 players will advance to the Finals on Sunday afternoon.
      Ties for any placings in the Top 24 will be determined by a single game playoff, on a machine chosen at random.


      Round One: (24 players remaining)
      * Top 4 finalists are awarded a bye.
      * Best-of-3 game head to head matches according to final seedings. Highest seed for each match chooses play order for their game (play order reverses for each subsequent game)
      * Matches are determined as follows: 5 vs 24, 6 vs 23, 7 vs 22, 8 vs 21, 9 vs 20, 10 vs 19, 11 vs 18, 12 vs 17, 13 vs 16, 14 vs 15.
      * The 10 Winners advance to Round 2.

      Round Two: (14 players remaining)
      * Top 2 are awarded another bye, 3rd & 4th seeds now join in.
      * Best-of 3 game head to head matches according to seedings of remaining players
      * Same as Round 1, with highest seed playing lowest seed, and so on. Same again for choice of machine & order of play.
      * The 6 winners advance to Round 3.

      Round Three: (8 players remaining)
      * 1st & 2nd seed now join in.
      * Same format (best of 3 games, etc) as Round 2 above.
      * The 4 winners advance to Round 4.
      (If 1st place was to be knocked out here, the lowest they could finish is 5th)

      Round Four: (4 players remaining)
      * Same format (best of 3 games, etc) as Round 2 above.
      * The 2 winners advance to the Grand Final, while the 2 other players will playoff for 3rd place.

      3rd Place Playoff:
      * Best of 3 game head to head series, same format as above to determine winner of 3rd place.

      Grand Final:
      * The 2 remaining players will play a best of 5-game series, same format above, to determine the tournament winner.

      There will be loads of cash & prizes up for grabs for the Brisbane Masters,
      including trophies for 1st, 2nd & 3rd place, awards for Highest Placed Female player, Highest placed Local player missing out on finals, Highest score on each machine during qualifying.
      Cash will be awarded for the Top 8 finalists.



      There will be 2 Flip Frenzy events during the weekend. Please check above for days & times.
      The format for both Flip Frenzy events will be exactly the same.

      All players are entered into a random draw, with 2 players drawn to play each available machine. First name chosen is the player 1. The rest of the players are placed in one central queue.

      When a game is completed:
      - The loser stays on the same machine, unless they have lost twice in a row, in which case the winner stays on.
      - The player leaving the machine moves to the back of the queue.
      - The player staying on the machine plays in the same position (P1/P2) as they played in the previous game.
      - The player at the front of the queue moves up to play the player staying on.

      At the end of three hours, no more games may start. The winner is the player with the most games won. Ties are broken by fewest losses.

      At this stage, we will not be putting a cap on the event, however if it looks like we will end up with lots of players, we may need to introduce one at a later date.
      Late players are still welcome to attend and join in, but you will be games behind everyone else.



      * No shirt - $60 entry
      * Pre-order shirt included - $70 entry

      SIDE COMPS (Frenzy, 3 Strikes)
      * All comps $20 each

      * Players will need to pre-register for any event via the tournament director emails, via Aussie Arcade PM, Facebook, or in person Jason - dj_j2008@hotmail.com , Jimmy - james.angliss@gmail.com
      * Players MUST pre-register and pre-pay for this event - NO EXCEPTIONS. Banking details are listed below. Payments can also be done in person.

      As you can all appreciate, an event of this nature will require a truckload of help and support over the whole weekend. If you are able to help or assist with any of the following:
      * Providing and/or transporting machines (will probably need a minimum of 20 machines)
      * Scoring (Matchplay, Excel)
      * Machine set up and repairs
      * Anything else that comes to mind.....
      please contact Jimmy or myself. There may be a reward or two on offer for anyone willing to provide help.

      We are pumped and excited to be able to put this event on again for 2017 - we look forward to seeing everyone in Brisbane in July!

      Excellent! Emily and I will be there - if no locals can help out may be able to provide a couple of machines too.

      2017 Brisbane Masters

      Let's see if I can get there this time.
      3rd time lucky.

      I can also help with repairs, maybe some set up if needed.

      Still deciding if I will play in this. I'm no chance at making it past the prelim round, but it sounds like a lot of fun. On the off chance that I do play, I will most likely do what I did for the recent Arcade Armagedon event and get an AirBnB close to Netherworld. I know I'm a local, but it's just easier than driving in and out each day.

      Anyway, if I do decide to play - are there any interstaters that are definitely coming that would like to go halves/thirds/quarters in an AirBnB? PM if you are interested.

      The AirBnB we had for the Arcade Armagedon event was at Hamilton, we mostly had 3 people on Friday night, 4 of Saturday and 3 on Sunday - ended up costing us around $60 each per night if memory serves. If (and it's still an if) I do play, I can most likely arrange airport pickups as well, probably from say 2pm or so onwards on the Firday, and then a drop off Monday morning (not too early - plan to be on the drink Sunday when it finishes).
      @Lambo - dumb question from an Arcader - I take it that all the side comps are elligible for IFPA points? Not that it really matters since I'm so lowly ranked, just curious
