    No, it won't. Cracker tested it and said everything was there, it's just a caching issue. If you aren't comfortable doing this yourself, you can wait for Microsoft to fix it, but I don't know how long that will take.

    Hey XBLA Tournament players! It seems like there is a caching issue happening right now, we are working to resolve it, but in the meantime you can follow the directions below to fix this issue:

    To resolve this, please go to Settings> System> Storage> Hard Drive> Games & Apps> Pinball FX2> Owned Tables. Delete the “Owned Tables” file, then start up Pinball FX2. Within 15 seconds, all of your data will return and you will be able to see and participate in the Infinity Gauntlet tournament. Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused!

    Because it's on XBLA-- it is their system, developers can't bypass them to host tournaments or do updates of any kind. Same thing with Sony.

    What time does this thing start? I've been checking all day and it still says: "No tournament is running at this moment. Please return later." I thought the 20th started at midnight, but more than half of the 20th has already passed and still no tournament. I'm anxious to begin.
    It'll show up! Just have to wait for Microsoft to make it live

    You can play as many times as you like. Your highest score in the time period is the one that counts.

Some people can afford to play a crazy amount of hours for a tournament but most of us only have a limited amount of time available. As such (and as the previous discussions have gone before your time) Zen's touted new tournament structure was planned to be based around the fact that a player can repeatedly improve on his tournament score as individual game lengths will be time limited in some way or manner. Will the new tournament structure still be implemented in the near future or is it also something that has shifted over to the realm of the mystical Pinball FX 3
    For me personally my highest score on the IG table is a piddly 590 million. When i made that score it was good for 15th like less than a week since the game was released. I haven't bested that score since sadly.

    Believe me, this table is the table i've put the most time into in the new pack. You can't spam it for points, haven't run into any glitches... the outlanes are NOT a problem on it at all... (bad shots that reflect down the middle are a problem though) You can achieve a high score on it relatively quick (only took me less than an hour to hit my score noted in the above paragraph), and to be honest with you... it's pretty much not that difficult to achieve. It really isn't. I'm generally terrible at this game, don't even have a 1+ billion score on ANY table. Closest i've been was on epic quest.

    All you've gotta do for IG is get all the gems (not all the missions are hard, space gem still gives me fits but that's the only one), max out the time on thanos frenzy, make the most out of the half of the universe mode, and do your thing on warlock frenzy,..... wash, rinse repeat. Sure, it sounds easy since i'm typing it up... but hell, you've got a full week for this mode to throw up a good score.

    Embrace the challenge my friend. Earn those slippers!!!! I'm sure they are very warm.

    Yep especially when its the Classics like Infinity Gauntlet, been wanting to get a Hard Back ver of it for ages.
    wish i bought them all when they were out. Think I only had 2 of the series, but probably sold them. Shame really.

    Although i still have 3 of the original uncanny x-men dark phoenix saga comics. Shame that they ain't worth a penny without the other 3 books.

    I guess I'm in the minority. Fear Itself is hands down the best table in the Avengers Pack. At least IMO. IG is 3rd out of the 4. IG is a great tables but not my favorite. Fear Itself is a challenging and deep Table IMO.

    IMO, IG is probably the most "Fair" out of all the tables in the new pack. No glitches i've encountered on it. No real way to repeat missions to get points, no boosting for the jackpots on certain modes like other tables. Everything about it is pretty damn consistent. Once you get the individual gem mission modes down it's not all that difficult to get to the wizard mode on. Pretty sure for these reasons are why I love the table so much.

    I don't think there's any other table on fx2 on the 360 where I can consistently get into the hundreds of millions for score, and consistently get to the wizard mode.... well, wait... epic quest. Nevermind
