What a fun event! Thanks everyone for putting that on, and the uh, special accommodations, made for me and my under-21-hood. I had a lot of fun, and really, really enjoyed the "new group of 4 every time" aspect. The best 3 out of 5 head to head was the most intense match of pinball I've ever played... Thanks again! :D

Good to see ya'll.

F HIGH SPEED!!!!

5 game, 4 person finals was awesome. If time constraints aren't an issue, I think it's the new best way to do it Great to see Bobby make it in.

How the hell does MWM crush an unbeatable first ball?

I just ran into MWM at Green Dragon, he told me "your score and your game is weak."

He'd have been toast if we were on a REAL machine like Dark Knight or Avatar.

Ha, yeah those were my exact words about Opto ;) That tourny was non-stop fun start to finish, finals format tweaking from last years CC was right on the money. Opto's intimidation factor was off the charts after posting that big 1st player/1st ball T2 score for us to stare at thinking... how the hell are we gonna beat that?!? It appeared everyone was having a good time and chalk up another dialed tournament/format thanks to Dropshot & Fred. Good turn-out of solid players from north and south. Looking forward to next years CC!

Thanks for running this and especially for accepting my last-minute entry! I had a great time again this year and can't believe I almost missed it. It was probably obvious but it was my first time making it into the finals of a major tournament, and needless to say I was completely intimidated. Playing against one of you three would freak me out, much less all three. But it was actually just a whole lot of fun, and I'm glad I managed to at least accomplish my goal of not getting last place on every game. The only game that has really haunted me is High Speed. What a complete ball-drop.

We might need to steal this tournament format for one up in Seattle, since it really is the most fun style that I've played!

Would be rad if someone would throw one of these at the Seattle pinball museum. Seems like it would be a great place for it.

If Seattle stole this idea for a tourney I would definately consider making the trip. PDX could beat Seattle on their home turf. :D

Hey, so I've been trying to come up with formulas and make a program to put out a bracket, but I'm stumped. How did you make it so each person played a different game each time, usually with different people?

Simple math. It's basically 4 latin squares rotated 90 degrees. Fred can give you more info. You need 1 machine for every 4 players.

Yes, more details would be amazing. I'm just not seeing how you can get different groups of four with nobody playing on the same machine more than once...

4 latin squares each rotated 90 degrees, one right below the next. Then substitute the numbers for machines.

I'll be honest, I had almost no idea what you were saying, but I did some research on what a latin square was and found an easy way to make one and remembered how that board looked at the tourney, and I figured it out now. Thanks :D
