As a newby to competitions, I've read this entire thread with all the discussions about TGP etc.. and think I've understood most of it, but I'd be grateful if someone could confirm, or correct my understanding, which is:
The competition will be held on 10 machines - which are listed on the first post of the Machine Donation Thread
There is a fee to enter the competition, which is £?? (I assume this from mentions of Ben's overdraft)?
When you enter the competition, you get a card with space for recording 3 scores.
You go to the competition area, and play 3 games only, each game on a different one of the 10 competition machines.
After each game, you record your score and have it verified.
You then hand in your card and your scores are recorded.
If you are not happy with your scores, you don't need to hand it in which voids your entry.
You are free to enter as many times as you like, but you need to pay the entry fee for each time you enter.
After the qualification period has ended (sometime around Sunday lunch), the finalists are determined by the organisers via some clever pre-determined process.
Final (won't be relevant for me)!
The final then proceeds on the Sunday afternoon as a head to head knockout format using a variety of the competition machines.
The winner is the last player remaining after the knockout.
Players will be awarded world pinball points - these will be determined by their finishing position in the final, the TGP (Tournament Grading Percentage), and the rankings of ranked players taking part?
Classic Machines Competition
There will also be a competition played on a group of 6 older classic machines, also listed on the Machine Donation Thread.
This will be organised differently to the main competition.
How this will be organised doesn't appear to have been discussed on this thread, although I assume it will also involve an entry fee, some form of qualifying and a final?
Assuming the above to be broadly correct, and (I'm assuming like other newbies) never having played any of the machines currently listed for the competitions, are the machines reserved solely for the competition, or will there be any opportunity to have a go on them outside the competition to at least get an idea of the ruleset, or does one just need to get on YouTube for this, and/or enter the competition multiple times?
Finally, I just wanted to say thanks to the people organising this, and I'm really looking forward to the whole weekend.
Yup that's pretty much it C&C although the cards at some tournaments are on computers (not sure what will be here).
The key thing in card based format is that you need to have good scores on all three games. If you get a bad score then your other two scores become potentially less value, then you need to do a new card. I personally find this format very challenging.
As all the machines are new to me, I think part of my problem will be not having the faintest idea what a good or bad score actually is!!The key thing in card based format is that you need to have good scores on all three games.

Hi Phil not 100% sure yet but defo mando pro avengers premiumThanks for the support, Phil. I think they will make more money in the bar. Especially out of event hours.
Can you tell us what they are so I can announce them on the social feeds? Gain some attention.
