  • The matchup mode

    Was it really intended to turn into an endurance rally?
    It would seem as it is now, the only way to win this thing is to play 24/7, and just put up games, lots and lots of games.
    (I assume you guy's have had so much to do, that you simply forgot to finish the mode?

    Can I suggest only counting the score from the best games you play of each of the 4 tables.

    Playing more games do result in more points that is true. Although the leagues are so crowded because of everyone starting from the bottom at launch.

    What you're suggesting would make a great 'Ranked' matchup mode actually. I just wrote it up to the designers.

      First of all I agree that matchup needs to be fixed so people who have the entire day off and nothing better to do than play the same table over and over and over and over dont win. Its too easy and frankly boring and takes away from what it could be, a competition. Anyway, I also want to address the tournaments, which give you 25 points if you come in first or if you come in 31st so there is no incentive to try and play for an hour or more to get the number 1 score other than seeing a 1 beside your name. In actuality its better to just let all your balls drain and move on if all you want is points. The points awarded should be based on how many participate so people cant easily cheat it and exploit it and an overall cap of points distributed by how you place in the tournament. Matchup should get progressively harder. This week the points are even lower than last week. If you want to weed out the top 20% percent right now the system is set up for anyone who dont have a job and can play 24/7 and not geared towards the best players. Both tournament and matchup games should be more refined. Pinball has always been about one thing. The high score. Skill.
