    How about a voting system to determine next match up or tournament roster?

    To work around the issue, I used to have a fake Xbox Live account I only used to get the lowest possible score I could on every table, which gave me a rough idea of how many players there were. I am thinking of doing that again, but I really shouldn't have to. And it needlessly pollutes the boards if several people do it.

    The Forza games do it best: they not only tell you how many players are listed, they also give you your percentile position on each board.

    Is there a reason Pinball FX has never done that, or is it just an oversight?
    Been asking for total number of players forever. Also on the list of obvious things to include: Incorporate tournament scores into leaderboards. If I set a highscore during a tournament that exceeds a leaderboard highscore it should surpass it according to the conditions of the rules. Not understanding why it isnt. Post a pop up when we have lost internet connection so we know to pause and reconnect before finishing the tournament only to find the score is invalid. It used to work like this and now doesnt. Allow us to easily send out invitations to our friends letting them know we have a tournament started. I would personally love to create my own custom background images for my profile. Obviously some will use it as a way to create vulgar bg's, but I really dont see the difference between that and playing someone in matchup named urinedrinker.

    That's not a bad idea actually, and there was someone suggesting the percentile thing as well a couple of weeks back. Maybe in the future this could be a fun update.
