Tävlingar / Italian Pinball Open, 2018-06-23-2018-06-24
« skrivet: mars 15, 2018, 09:59:09 »
talian Pinball Open:
this year the Italian Pinball Championship will take place during the weekend of 23-24 June 2018 in a new location, for a completely new and unique event, in a new format full of fun.
In fact, QLASH House by Luca Pagano will host the tournament: the headquarters of Team Qlash and eSports in Italy. That is, videogame tournaments representing a world very close to that of pinball machine.
A real festival full of fun will take place in the weekend of 23-24 June, in Treviso. But also full of competition. Together with the Italian Pinball Championship - IPO, there will also be an eSports tournament ("Hearthstone" invitational tournament with 8/16 participants) to also involve the public of professional players from both sports. But in addition to this, a tournament will also be played, that can bring these two worlds together and involve both of them: it is a challenge to Virtual Pinball, played on tablet stations, which is giving away an interesting prize for the winner, namely a brand new tablet!

Detailed information about the event will be published in the coming days. (The organization signed particularly favorable conditions with some hotels very close to the facility that will be shortly published).
Meanwhile, here are the first info regarding the IPO Italian pinball championship:

The tournament includes a main event (Main Tournament) inserted in the official Ifpa calendar and therefore valid for the Wppr ranking, but is also included in the calendar of the ICS 2018 National Circuit, constituting the fourth and the most important stage in terms of points and it will also be the Italian event for the Ecs European circuit (In these two cases, only the Main Tournament will be taken into account), constituting the only Italian stage of the circuit.
Start: Saturday, June, the 23rd 2018 End: Sunday, June, the 24th 2018
Max: 64 players

Subscription start from 1st April 2018

Tävlingar / IFPA 15, 1-3/6 2018 i Kanada
« skrivet: januari 10, 2018, 09:20:44 »
IFPA 15, 1-3/6 2018

En del av er (ni som ligger topp-100) har redan fått mejl om detta, men det kan vara bra med en infotråd också kanske.
Årets IFPA går av stapeln 1-3 juni på adressen "Press Start Arcade in Keswick, Ontario, Kanada"
Mer info finns här:

Varje land har ju två "friplatser" om de vill, och resten av deltagarna fylls på enligt rankinglistan som den såg ut 1/1 (eller om det kanske är 31/12).

För Sveriges del så verkar Jorian nästan säker på att han ska dit.
Jörgen får tydligen inte delta i år eftersom han under en period ställde sig utanför rankingen förra året.
Och jag själv kommer att hoppa över IFPA detta år har jag bestämt.
Men Markus och JG brukar ju vara på hugget, och säkert fler andra av er.

Not: det här är alltså ingen tråd man anmäler sig i eller så, utan bara lite info.

Tävlingar / Svensk ECS-tävling 2017?
« skrivet: februari 22, 2017, 10:48:00 »
Vilken tävling ska vi utse till svensk ECS-tävling iår?
(ECSär alltså "Europatouren")

EM (som kommer att gå i Sverige) är per automatisk en ECS-tävling, så vi kan alltså utse en till.
Det bör väl vara en hyfsat stor tävling, och krock med annan europeisk stortävling bör undvikas.

Ge förslag nedan!

Redan spikade tävlingar i andra länder är:

SWITZERLAND –> Nordwestschweizer- Flippermeisterschaft (March 4, 2017)
ITALY –> Italian Pinball Open (March 25-26, 2017)
NETHERLANDS –> Dutch Pinball Masters (April 29-30, 2017)
FRANCE –> Master Pinball Elite Yvelines 2017 (May 13, 2017)
SPAIN, 'Torneo Madrileño de Pinballs', May 20th & 21st
LIECHTENSTEIN –> Liechtenstein Pinball Open (June 2017)
AUSTRIA –> Austrian Pinball Open (September 15-17, 2017)
HUNGARY –> Hungarian Pinball Open (November 2017)

Tävlingar / Pre-IFPA tournamemts in Denmark
« skrivet: februari 08, 2017, 08:34:22 »

Nedan information är från Peter i Danmark.
Vi kan föranmäla två personer per täving, och anmälan via den här tråden (svara på frågorna allra längst ned) önskas senast 18/2.
Som jag förstår det så behöver man inte föranmäla sig om man redan ska spela IFPA (för då kommer man att erbjudas en plats ändå),
Så vi kan ju köra de två högst rankade intressenterna per tävling (som inte redan har IFPA-plats vill säga)
Alla andra kommer att kunna anmäla sig ett par dagar efter dead line.


As you all have probably noticed, Denmark, via the Pinlab, is hosting
this years IFPA14 tournament.

But, no IFPA World Championship without a lot of pinball action on the
side, and for this, most of the greatest pinball venues in the greater
Copenhagen area have joined together to host a giant smorgasbord

of pinball festivities in the days leading up to the IFPA14, lovingly
called "The IFPA World Championship Week".

As is tradition, it has been decided that each country will be given 2
pre-registration slots for each tournament, which can be given to any
players the CD chooses. How and who you will let pre-register is
entirely up to you.

A pretty important note is that all players that are playing in IFPA14
tournament will have an excemption slot offered to them. So you need not
worry about your top-ranked players, they have already been taken care of.

On to the fun part, the practical information about the week

May 27th -> May 28th, The World Classic Open
A two day "Classics Only" tournament, held in Hvalsø near Roskilde, with
a pristine collection of classic machines.

May 29th -> May 30th, Danish Pinball Open
The already well established Danish Pinball Open has been moved from its
usual spot in October, and has been extended one day.

May 31st, The Retro Arcade Open
The Retro Arcade in Glostrup, a treasure-trove of pinball machines,
opens its doors for a fast one day tournament, the day before IFPA14
kicks off.

And who knows what else might happen during this week of pinball? ;)
The price for participation is 50€ for each tournament.

Som Jorian uppmärksammade mig på är det tydligen bara ett par dagar kvar (att nominera en svensk tävling till omröstningen för vilka tävlingar som ska vara med i PAPA Ciruit i år.
Förra året var det Borås Pinball Open.

Så, om du arrangerar en tävling du tycker ska vara en PAPA Circuit-tävling, gå in här och fyll i formuläret.
Men vänligen läs de olika minimikraven du måste kunna uppfylla först.
(De står på anmälningssidan)

Tävlingar / För er som lägger upp tävlingar i IFPA-kalendern
« skrivet: januari 11, 2017, 14:30:34 »

IFPA kommer att vara lite hårdare med hur man lägger upp tävlingar i kalendern.
Oavsett om tävlingen spelas i en privat eller offentlig lokal ska man ange en gatuadress.
Har man en tävling i en privat lokal, utan att annonsera ut adressen, och har färre än 16 deltagare så ger tävlingen inte längre Whoppers.

Ordagrant skrev Josh så här:
"Per our rules for events listed as "Private":

"There are no limitations to how many events any particular location or organizer can hold. For any tournaments submitted to the IFPA calendar as ‘private’ (address not listed publicly on our site), the IFPA requires a minimum of 16 players to attend for that tournament to be endorsed for WPPR points.

 The IFPA now requires a full address in the calendar submission, and it is understandable for tournament directors to want to host IFPA endorsed tournaments out of their homes and not have their full address made public. Any private tournament that fails to reach 16 players will not be endorsed for WPPR points. An organizer is limited to hosting 4 ‘private’ tournaments per year for a given location."

De svenska tävlingar som inte hade angivit adress under året var de nedan
Jag bad dock att de inte skulle stryka whopperpoängen för dem utan att det var legitima tävlingar.
Men tänk på att alltid ange en adress om ni vill vara säkra på whoppers.
