    Brisbane Pinball Club

    Happy new year to all and welcome to 2019!

    Due to popular demand, the Brisbane Pinball Club @ Netherworld will be moving to FORTNIGHTLY meets, starting Tuesday January 16th.
    This change will see a greater option on which meets to attend throughout the year. Entry fee for each meet will remain at $15 per player.
    There is one small change to qualifying, which has now been increased to 10 games qualifying. Finals format will remain the same as last year.

    Qualifying:
    Qualifying opens from 4pm each meet.
    8 games will be selected at random, or by fan vote. Each player plays 1 game on each machine in 'Herb style' qualifying
    Top 16 players on points will advance to finals. Ties for any place will be broken by the player with the highest individual point score on a game during qualifying (ie. 100 points)
    ** Please note that no new games may start after 9pm **

    Finals (if 32 players or more):
    Top 16 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.
    Highest available seed will always play the lowest available seed In a match. Highest seed can choose the machine, with the lowest choosing play order. 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.

    Finals (if less than 32 players, but more than 16):
    Top 8 advance to 'NRL/AFL finals' format Each head-to-head match is Best of 3 games. Top 4 players, as per NRL/AFL finals series are given a double chance.
    Matches for 1st round of finals are as follows: 1v4, 2v3, 5v8, 6v7 and will continue until there is only 1 player remaining, who is the winner.
    Players with the highest seeding in each match will be able to choose the machine that their match will be on, with the lowest seed choosing play order. Play order alternates each game in the Best-of-3 match.

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

    DISCLAIMER:
    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.

    We are trialling a Top 16 finals for this meet (based on a minimum of 32 entrants). Hopefully this will give a wider range of players a greater chance at making finals and possibly go even further.

    Qualifying is on from 4pm, last arrivals by about 7pm. Entry fee is $15.

    Machine choice for Tuesday is as follows:
    (1 choice per person only, first 8 games will be used, owners can't choose their own machine)
    * Grand Lizard
    * 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 & Addams Family are currently experiencing issues, and will not be included in the game list this fortnight.

    Already chosen so far (6 to go):
    * Grand Lizard
    * Creature From The Black Lagoon

    Any questions, please feel free to call, email or PM anytime. See you on Tuesday night!

    Well done @Michi 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!

    Michi.

    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!

    Cheers,
    Lambo
