Had a great turnout for the 1st round of season 3 with a total of 16 players in attendance. A couple of the the veterans unfortunately missed due to prior commitments but that just means they’ll bring the heat next round. We had several new players make a showing with some strong play. Looks like season 3 is going to be a competitive one. Can’t wait!!!
Standings after round 1
Only one week out from Season 3 of the RPL!! Woo Hoo!
This season should be an exciting one as we have added several members are now looking at a 16 person field to vie for title of RPL Champion!! We have a couple rule changes to this season to reflect players true rankings amongst other players in the league. That should make for some tight races across the board. Below is our new scoring system. Hopefully this will end up being a stable and easy to use system from here on out.
Stay tuned for updates over Season 3. Thanks for looking.
With a possible 19 points on the line in this weekend’s tournament the race for second and third place is very tight. First place for the overall season is locked up as long as I can roll out of bed.
The tournament consist of 2 qualifying tournaments. Both are 2 out 3 double elimination tournaments at two locations. Top spot at each location is awarded 8 points, 2nd with 7 and so on. Any place below 8th also receives one point. The top player at each location will play in a best 2/3 to determine overall winner. Players coming in 2nd at each location will play for 3rd and fourth place overall.
Convoluted but it works. 🙂
The next league night will be in the Boocade on 12/10/13. This is a change from the usual back and forth rotation to give Taylor time to get his machines ready for the Flip This Tournament that he is holding on 12/14/13. We will start warmups at 7:30 and start league play at 9:00 sharp. Joe has promised baked goods that will bring you to tears. Don’t miss it!
The next league night is on November 12 at my house. We will start warm ups at 7:30 with league play starting at 8:30. We will implement the high score competition so bring some ones if you want to join in. Each qualifying game will cost a buck.
Last night, a few if us were kicking around an idea for a league based high score competition. For each machine in league play, we will keep a count of the current high score set by a member during league play. During warm ups or after league play on league play nights, a league member can challenge the current high score on a machine by paying one dollar per challenge. High scores could also be challenged anytime a set number of league members is playing at one of the two league locations. We discussed setting this number at four. The money for each machine would be distributed following the season end tournament.
What do you think?
I gave out a few shirts on the second night of league play. If you did not get one, let me know your size.
