Main Event Qualifying
Saturday June 24th, 2023
8AM Doors Open for Practice
9AM Tournament Starts
4:30PM Projected End Time
The Group Match Play Qualifier will be played in groups of 4 (3 when necessary).
Random Seeding to start, then Tiered Swiss Style thereafter. If Tiered Swiss not available then Swiss will be used. MatchPlay Software will most likely be used for the tournaments.
Each Round will consist of a 2 games played 1 at a time on the older, ‘classic’ games at D82.
You will receive 3/2/1/0 scoring on each game
Automatic Tiebreakers will be turned on
Once 10 rounds are played (20 Games Total) the top 24 players make it to the final
8th & 24th place will not use the Automatic Tiebreakers. All players tied with the same amount of accumulated points for the 8th or 24th position will have a 1 GAME tiebreaker to determine who gets into the final and who doesn’t. This 1 GAME tiebreaker is significant and will result in the final placing for all players who finish 25th or worse in the tournament. Example. We have 10 players with the same amount of points who finish from 21st-30th in qualifying. They all get to play a 1 GAME tiebreaker. The person with the lowest tiebreaker score finishes the tournament in 30th place.
Game list for the Classics Main Event Qualifying as of March 2023 is listed below. This may change a little as we get closer to the tournament date but will be very close.
The other tournaments may use all the games and alternates between newer and older each round. The complete list of pinball machines at District 82 is here: https://district82.com/game-list/
Because of the number of players some groups will be playing game 1 on a certain game and then a second group may have that same machine as their game 2. Just wait for the 1st group to finish then play your game.
If a game goes down and cannot be repaired quickly you will be given a replacement game.
