    Definitively a well deserved win for Danielle, he crushed everyone in both Pinbot and Dracula.

    Great Dracula game…Bowen did you almost drop an F bomb at the end of his ball three there…that was pretty funny.

    At the beginning of Robert’s ball, he missed the skill and got 500,000 and then advanced his multiplier to 2x along with some pop-bumper hits and had 6 million points after coming out of the pops. How did he jump from 500,000 to more than 6 million? Are pops worth that much? Someone please explain.

    Instant replay suggests that bumpers are worth 10,000 per bumper, but are worth 250,000 per bumper after a multiplier completion — perhaps only for a few seconds? I’m pretty surprised by it too, but Robert is clearly getting 10,000 before the 2x and 250,000 after.

    Overall the bonus multiplier is worth a ridiculously low amount of points to end-of-ball, so this would improve its value somewhat…

    Come on, Bowen. The game has only been out 19 years. Haven’t you studied film before?

    I’m going to build a PAPA war room similar to NFL draft day where we can study player film in slow motion and talk about exotic rule knowledge that never matters.

    Maybe we can eventually draft teams and have Pre-Pinburgh, pre-PAPA Circuit, Wednesday skills competition complete with written exams and rare flipper skill tests. More players on your team completed the Elwin-pose cradle separation? One point for your team. Team 2 caught and cradled more balls out of the pop bumpers on dracula? The score is all tied up folks!

    Yeha, the bumpers are actually worth decent points while they’re building the castle jackpot (which is whenever you complete the three lanes) That might also be how sometimes when you come out of a multiball you have tons more points than you may expect…

    I’d love to watch the quarters and semi finals of this tournament. Any uploads coming in the future?
