*we are limiting this to 100 players max.
There will be plenty of machines to accommodate everyone. in fact, if anyone wants to bring a machine, you can keep the coin drop from your machine.
$60 per person and this all goes into the payout purse. (all entry fees are paid out 100% to the winners).
EVERYONE QUALIFIES for the playoffs so you don't have to be an expert player. Beginners to average players are welcome as well.
*playoffs will be split into "A" division and "B" division with "good" players restricted to "A" division playoffs no matter how they play in qualifying.
This way, if you are not a good player, You won't be forced into playing in "A" division playoffs unless you do so well in qualifying you make the "A" cut (top half of players).
*Everyone will play together in groups of 4 (or 3) players.
*each group will play 4 machines (2 older, 2 newer), then we re-seed for each round (just as pinball leagues do).
*8 rounds total. (5 rounds friday, 3 rounds saturday)
*Playoffs will follow after round 8 on saturday.
**Payouts will be structured as follows and will be based on actual number of players.
75% of the prize purse goes to "A" division
25% of the prize purse goes to "B" division
1st= 30%of "A" purse
1st= 30%of "B" purse
The actual payouts depends on the number of players we have.
*If we fill the 100 player max, payouts would be:
5th, 6th, 7th, 8th= $180 each
9th, 10th, 11th, 12th= $90 each
5th, 6th, 7th, 8th= $60 each
9th, 10th, 11t5h, 12th= $30 each
** All games will be on normal coin drop.
REMEMBER, since all of the entry fees are paid out 100%, the coin drop pays for tournament expenses, trophies/prizes, game ware and upkeep before and after the event, employees, flyers and everything else tourney related.
