Player Affiliations for Pinburgh 2013

We asked the 400 players at Pinburgh 2013 to organize into groups.  And there are some major groups: Pittsburgh Pinball League with 40 players, Free State Pinball Association with 38 players, and plenty more.

What are we doing with this information?  This:


(The screenshot may not reflect some recent changes to players’ affiliations and may also reflect the use of a random number generator.)

If you want to be part of this group-versus-group competition, get into a group of at least 5 players.  All players will also be ranked within their group regardless of its size.

If you haven’t listed an affiliation or want to make a change, send email or leave a comment here.

    Interesting. But i think that maybe some matches are not included in the records. I guess first day results that were zeroed for C players are left out.
    Would be interesting to see percentages broke down by player. For STPB i would suspect that Mats Runsten has the best record, considering that i finished 1st in qualifying two years in a row. 🙂

    Don’t worry, we have it covered! All matches on all days will count for these records.

    Some others asked me with the same confusion. The picture taken here is from a test run of the 2013 tournament with this year’s 400 players, using random simulation for wins and losses. So everything you see in this screenshot is baloney. The real event will use real data!
