Current Seedings for Pinburgh 2014

Pinburgh 2014 PosterThe list below is the 400 players currently registered for Pinburgh 2014, listed from top to bottom by seeding.

At the end of Friday, March 28, the 400 Pinburgh players will be divided into four skill divisions. Each division has a different prize pool. It is more challenging to qualify in Division A, but it’s worth more!

Some players are restricted into divisions based on their prior success in pinball events, notably PAPA, Pinburgh, and the 2013 PAPA Circuit. The goal of this process is for the champion of each Pinburgh division to properly represent that division. Most players do not receive a restriction. A player can also outperform their restriction and move up to an even higher division through strong play on Friday.

  • All players in the PAPA Circuit Final are restricted to Division A. When the Circuit Final is over, these players will take the top seeds in Pinburgh 2014, in their order of finish.
  • Players reaching the finals at PAPA 12-16 must play in at least that division at Pinburgh 2014. Players qualifying in Classics may not play in Division D.
  • Players reaching any final round (Sunday) at Pinburgh 2011-13 cannot drop more than one division lower at Pinburgh 2014.
  • Players reaching the final four at Pinburgh 2013 must jump up to a higher division at Pinburgh 2014.
  • Players receive a restriction if they earned enough PAPA Circuit points, or if they attained a high enough WPPR rank on January 1, 2014.
  • A player’s restriction is removed if they were “bumped” up to a higher division at the two previous Pinburghs.

Complete details of the restriction rules are available here. Players are seeded based on these restrictions, and by their WPPR rank as of January 1, 2014. The table below lists each player’s current seed, any restriction that applies to them, and the reason for that restriction.

    Just want to make sure, my past pinburgh entry and IFPA profile is under Jon Drew, not Jonathan Drew. Wanted to point out in case it made a difference in my seeding and to make sure everything is on the up and up. Can’t wait for this week!

    What happens in year XXXX when there are more than 100 people restricted to the A division? 🙂

    Steve, based on the ways in which players are restricted, there is a fairly low maximum to the number of players who can be restricted to Division A.

    We will monitor these issues and the restriction rules can change from year to year. The restriction rules for 2014 are identical to 2013, and fewer players overall have restrictions than in 2013.

    Thanks, Bowen. I was thinking it would level off at some point. It’s also nice to know that you guys are monitoring all this stuff even if I’m not thinking about it.

    I assume that last minute additions to the roster could cause these seedings to shuffle?
