District 82 Pinball Championship Format:

Big Picture:

We are taking the Top 64 players and matching them up Head to Head against other players in best of 7 game match ups. Then eliminate everyone until 1 person remains.

If we have less than 64 players than the top seeded players will get bye in round 1. Example only 60 people show up; players seed 1,2,3, and 4 will get first round bye into the second round.

We have a 2nd chance tournament (B division) that will include everyone who is eliminated from the 1st tournament in the 1st round only. I will start a brand new tournament, just for them, that will be for 32 players and run the tournament the exact same way. After this any players that are defeated in their match ups will be eliminated from their tournaments.

Fine Details:

  1. Seeding of finalists

Once all participants are finalized, the 64 players will be seeded based on their 2019 District 82 Pinball ranking position at the end of the calendar year. In the event that any players are tied with the same amount District 82 Pinball points, we will look at the overall WPPR rank of those players as of the end of that calendar year.

The higher seeded player will have choice of machine or position for the 1st game, with the loser of each subsequent game having choice of machine or order, until someone has won 4 games. A machine may not be played more than once in the same match. Once a player verbally announces their game choice, or chooses position, that decision will be locked in and cannot be changed.

Each player will have the opportunity for 30 seconds of practice time before starting every game of every match. This is to ensure that both players have a chance to get familiar with the machine.

The winner of the match advances to the next round, while the loser is eliminated.

The 3rd/4th place Consolation Final will be played as a best-of-three instead of a best-of-seven like all other rounds, using the same rules.
