Pinball Arcade - Day 7 of 7

Scoreboard error??? Ok, Here is how the last 24 hours went down. I held first place in Black Knight early yesterday morning. (which gave me a lead of about 12-15 points) Focused sporadically all day on my 3 way round robin - Black Knight 2000, Goin' Nuts, and Dr. Dude. I was not able to improve on any of them. Took a 5 hour power nap at midnight, woke up with an hour to go (5AM). Took notice that Max put up an amazing Black Knight score that surpassed mine, as he then took over the overall lead by about 8-10 points. So heres where it gets strange, focusing only on Dr. Dude, Black Knight 2000 for the last hour, about 15 minutes left to go, I suddenly took the overall lead thinking someone out of 222 players then beat Max on one of his scores, thus somehow handed me a gift without doing it myself. I kept on playing til the official clock ran out, and it seems PA duplicated some of my scores, thus possibly dropping others beneath me. So Max, please double check all your table tally scores and point positions on your end against mine and others. I refuse to accept victory on a technicality, as you really deserve to win this!

    Ha! Super close Marc. Nice job! Congrats.

    That was a fun tournament!

    I'm not concerned about the points and suspect that someone jumped in last minute and slightly beat one of my 3rd or 4th place scores by one position (or bumped both of us down one position on some game that you had a higher score than me on). It was that close so that just a spot or two would make a difference. I had not been tracking anything all that closely so I can't point to a game, score or player. All positions and all scores matter in these tourneys!

    When does the gold tourney start? : D

    That is a possibility. Come to think of it, there might of been an overload with a large herd trampling some last minute scores in, as there was a few minutes delay just to enter the tournament. (no problems before with that) Also, I could of sworn on day 1 that I achieved 5 million on Safecracker, and the score didnt post properly, that was supposed to be 2nd or 3rd position on it at the time. Outside the tournament, I had online problems in the past, as some of my personal best didnt register on their site as well. (thats definitely on my end) Oh well, I will send Farsight an email to see if it was a last minute glitch on their end, and will keep you posted with any updates. (They start these new tournaments every 3 weeks or so).

    Regardless, yes it was still fun and congrats to you as well! See you at Gold tier! Some of those players put up absolutely insane scores. My goal is just to make the top 10 in that dedicated group! :)
