D82 Saturday Night Classics Pinball Tournament

Qualify Portion:

The Group Match Play Qualifier will be played in groups of 4 (3 when necessary).
IFPA Seeding to start, then Tiered Swiss Style thereafter. If Tiered Swiss not available then Swiss will be used.
Each Round will consist of 2 games played 1 at a time on the older, ‘classic’ games at D82
You will receive 7/5/3/1 scoring on each game
Automatic Tiebreakers will be turned on
Once 7 rounds are played the top 24 players make it to the final
Top 8 will receive a first round bye
8th & 24th place will not use the Automatic Tiebreakers. All players tied with the same amount of accumulated points for the 8th & 24th place person will have a 1 BALL tiebreaker to determine who gets into the final and who doesn’t. This 1 BALL tiebreaker is significant and will result in the final placing for all players who finish 24th or worse in the tournament. Example. We have 10 players with the same amount of points who finish from 21st-30 in qualifying. They all get to play a 1 BALL tiebreaker. The person with the lowest tiebreaker score finishes the tournament in 30th place regardless of there qualifying position. 9th-12th place get to pick the bank in the first round of qualifing. If we play a tiebreaker for 8th then some player(s) don’t make the top 8. This tiebreaker BALL will determine who is 9th, 10th, etc and we will use that for seeding for the finals.

Finals Portion:

Top 24 Players from the Main Event Qualifying will play in the Finals. If someone doesn’t show up for round 1 the 25th ranked person (or next highest available person) from qualifying can take their place. If a player fails to show up for round 2 or later rounds we continue as if they are still in the tournament and plunge balls until they show up or are eliminated. The format will consist of 4 rounds of 3 game banks. Top 8 qualifiers get a 1st round bye. Groupings for first round will be (9th, 16th, 17th, 24th), (10th, 15th, 18th, 23rd), (11th, 14th, 19th, 22nd), (12th, 13th, 20th, 21st) Games will be played one at a time. High seed in each group will get choice of Bank and Order on 1st game. Subsequent games the order choice is reversed with 4th place getting to pick first, then 3rd place next, etc. The games that are in the banks will be chosen by the tournament director before the start of the tournament and won’t be revealed until the playoffs. The banks will be all classic pins. Once a bank is chosen it will be out for the rest of the finals. Scoring will be 4/2/1/0 for each of the 3 games. Top 2 advance bottom 2 are eliminated. Should there be a tie for 2nd/3rd place a 1 game playoff will be played by the 2 affected players. That game will either chosen by the TD or pre-printed on the playoff sheet if needed.

The 8 Eliminated players from 1st round will finish 17th-24th according to how many points they accumulated in this round. Ties will not be broken.

In the Quarterfinal Round, the players advancing from the previous round will be reseeded according to their original ranks and divided into four groups as follows.

16 Players

Group 1:  1   8    9   16
Group 2:  2   7   10  15
Group 3:  3   6   11  14
Group 4:  4   5   12  13

The 8 eliminated players will be ranked 9th-16th according to the accumulated points in this round. Ties will not be broken.

For the Semifinal Round, the 8 players advancing will be divided into two groups of four. The groups will be organized according to the original qualifying rank as shown here:

8 Players

Group 1:   1   4   5   8
Group 2:   2   3   6   7

The 4 eliminated players from this round will be ranked from 5th-8th based on the accumulated points from this round. Ties will not be broken.

The four remaining players advance to the final round. The final round is conducted in the same manner as the Semifinal Round. The total scores for this round will determine the ordering of the winners. All ties in the final round are considered significant and will be broken with a 1 game playoff. The final reporting of points to IFPA will show 1st-4th place with no ties.

Top 4 Trophies

Disclaimer on number of players

If we have 33-47 players then we play 8 rounds of qualifying with top 16 players making the finals and no bye rounds.
If we have 32 or less player then we will play 8 rounds of qualifying and the top half will make finals. Finals groups will be adjusted based on number of players.
