Come celebrate our 1 year Anniversary of The Lower Playfield tournaments! Who woulda thunk it — a whole year! Our first tournament was a 16 person flip frenzy — how far we’ve come! Let’s celebrate the past and also farm some WPPRs like we do these days.
Matchplay Mayhem will will be a head-to-head battle royale. We’ll start with 13 rounds of head-to-head Max Matchplay, where you will be placed with another player randomly on a game head to head. Once all players have played 13 games, the top 16 will move on to 4 player, 3 game match play groups scored 4-2-1-0. Your first game will be assigned as a random “short play” game. The high seed of the group will choose the other two games or position, with the next highest seed choosing, and so on. Players may only select a game ONCE during the playoffs. Top two from each group move on to the next round until we crown a winner!
Players eliminated in the Semifinal round will play 1 game for a consolation prize.
Didn’t make the playoffs? No problem! Everyone who missed the playoffs will be put into a head-to-head, single game bracket. The winner takes home a prize as well!
WPPR Fiends: This will calculate to 31 TGP, or 124% WPPR value. The single elimination bracket is not IFPA certified and is just for the prizes!
As for time, I’ll note we are running tournament types we’ve not run before! However, we anticipate the Max Matchplay portion to take roughly 3-4 hours, and the finals to take an additional 3 hours for the main bracket, and (concurrent with finals) around an hour/hour and a half for the lower bracket.
