  1. Hi Pinballers, Aussie Arcade welcomes you to the Visual Pinball Gaming League with VPGL 22– Competition 2 -Clash of the Titans. This competition is the 2nd of the year and part of the overall VPGL21 for 2022 commencing on Friday 13th May. Nominations for 2 EM, 2 SS & 3 DMD games close Thursday 12th May, and the competition is now open to VPX 10.7. All gamers worldwide are welcome to play with cab or desktop configurations. You can join in at any time and play and play as much or little as you wish. Competition: The player with the most points in this tournament will be the VPGL 22 champion. We will be playing a 8 week, 9 game competition in this tournament. We will be competing world wide on some of the most challenging and toughest pinball games of all time. 2 tables will be released at the start, then 1 table each week, with the final 2 tables released at the same time for the finale. Games are only open for 17 days each, so pinballer's must play their best in that time and post their scores before the game is closed. At the end of each VPGL, points will be accumulated for each gamer toward the Visual Pinball Championship of 2022 Scoreboard. The highest score after four VPGL's competitions are completed will be the undisputed champion of Visual Pinball for 2022 and forever held with accolades in Aussie Arcade gaming history. Yep. This is big! Prizes: There are currently no prizes on offer for VPGL. however if someone wants to offer something up, let me know. Point system: The incremental point system will be used for each pinball table. 1st place will earn 100 points, 2nd place 99 points, 3rd place 98 points and so on. All players will earn competition points for their scores. If there is a tie on the overall scoreboard, then a head to head game win count will be used to determine the final placings. For example, if two players tie for 18th place, then whoever has scored higher per game on a head to head basis will earn 18th place and the other gamer will earn 19th place. If there is a tie also on head to head game count, the gamer who has the highest accumulated game score points will be the winner. Overall Point system: The overall point system for VPGL 2021will be that points are awarded to anyone finishing in the top 20 for each VPGL in the year. 25 points for first, 22 for second, 19 for third, 17 for 4th and then it decreases by 1 point per position down to 20th. If there is a tie after 4 competitions for the 2021 Champion, it will be based on a countback where the player with the most game wins will be the outright winner, if still even it will go on the number of second place and then 3rd places. If still even, it will be on total points awarded for placings from all games within 2021. If then the top players cannot be separated, it will be deemed a draw. Games: Tables are nominated by the competitors and sent by PM to the VPGL co-ordinater, (RusstyT). Tables must be selected from those readily available to Visual Pinball 10 (VPX) that do not require additional installation such as P-Roc to run (games using PinUp Player are accepted). Original tables are not to be nominated without prior approval (we've had problems previously with them not being competition ready). If there are multiple versions of the same table available then the players can choose to use whatever version they wish to use. The game threads often contain discussions around what version seems to be the easiest and/or best to play. Please nominate tables that you've played and tested (at least a little) so that we don't have broken games come up in competition The number of games that can be nominated by each competitor in VPGL 21 is 6 which are to be made up of 2 x EM, 2 x SS and 2 x DMD. (Alpha numeric games can be nominated as either SS or DMD games at the nominators discretion). The games to be played in the competition will be randomly drawn from the pool of nominations. The order of game play will be determined by the Gamemaster and each game will be released weekly for competition. If you would like to nominate games and have a say in what is played, please send them by private message (PM) to RusstyT by midnight Sydney time on Thursday 12th May 2022.
