I'll participate, but don't expect a really high score from me. I'm saving all of that for when ZP2 releases.
Yeah, same here. Unfortunately, since I had surgery on my back and recovered, I no longer have the time to master all the tables and get some really good scores. During recovery was the only time I have had #1 scores (Shaman, Tesla, ...), and they have since been beaten. I go online now from time to time for multiplayer only, presently working on my Fear Itself mulitplayer score. I will give this tourney a go, but I still haven't even figured it totally out yet...would be nice to know how to activate kickbacks even! Good luck to all. Keep that silver ball alive!

Whoa. Haven't played too much IG since release. With this tourney and the league for PSN playing Shaman, I'll be pretty busy trying to better my scores for both tables. Really wish ZP2 would have been here already. The slowdown after locking the ball really irks the heck out of me. Not only that. Shaman would probably play quite differently with the new Physics implemented.
I'll try, probably not my hardest though lol We'll see what happens This will be my first tournament though
I just looked into that blog post Barbie, what's it mean by a "full game" anyways? I'm in irregardless though. Also, what time will it start Midnight PDT?

Umh, I don't have an xbox. I play only on PS3 but anywho. I'll prolly drop in on that in the evening then.

He is probably offline working on high scores, and will sign in to post them, lol. Actually, I saw last night he was online recently.
Another thing, I went into "tournaments" and pressed "X" to join this tournament, but nothing happened. I have a saved game in progress, prior to tournament start time. Will this score be reflected I wonder? (when the game ends?)
Indeed, it's been a while since the last tourney.
Nothing better than fighting your way to get to the top 100...! lol
Thank you for the news Barbie!
Well, how did I manage that? On the Infinity Gauntlet, which is, or was, my bogey table, I somehow managed 138 million on the first go! I even got to the Thanos Frenzy stage with four gems acquired! The two I didn't get, the Power Gem and the Soul Gem, are usually the ones I get with relative ease compared to the other four, so I could've easily got all six. I was a little lucky with the Reality Gem mission though. I never completed that mission before, but it was the last gem that was activated, and then I somehow activated two multiball modes at the same time.
Still, a 100M+ score was definitely not what I was expecting to reach, especially after a particularly lousy first ball. It's enough to place 11th on the tournament leaderboard for now. How the guy at the top got over a billion is beyond me.
Feel free to friend me, but make sure you mention that you are from these forums.
Finally a table that doesn't allow you to score billions upon billions. At least not for me anyways. Finally a low scoring skill table. Really puts you to the test
My third try at the tourn I managed to get 107 m. Played many IG since release and had only 42 m. Just tryin to stay in top 100 by end of 6 more days. Those top few scores are incredible, must need a few extra balls and alot of PB skills to achieve those kind of points. Great work ZEN, hope to see a FI or MN tourney in the future.
I can't even play the tourney. I click on tournament in the options and nothing happens. I click on scoreboards for other tables and nothing happens. I can play the tables but I don't scores will reflect what I've done.
Kind of frustrating. I'm nor sure If I'm the only one having this problem. I even reinstalled it and still nothing. I didn't delete it entirely my local scores and friends scores are still there but when I can't see any weekly or all-time scores.
well, I managed 800+ million, without even understanding half of the tables rules. I just figured out today, how to use the powershot properly, AND how to change the gauntlet return lanes to help with powershots and givebacks (kickbacks). Also had a "Gauntlet Saver" today as well, so I am hoping these new strategies will help me past the 1 billion mark. I lost a ball today because it rolled down the table as the silver surfer was in the way, and I didn't even know it drained until it was too late. very annoying! Mammouth, awesome score dude...
Last thing, I had a game in progress when the tourney started, and it DID post my score to the scoreboard when I was done.
One more thing, I see elmafioso creeping up his score too
Hitting the bumpers after playing a gem mission harvest souls for half of the universe multiball. Sometimes keeping the ball up there is difficult other times it seems like there is a magnet keeping the ball from going down the surfboard. Why is That?
yeah, you will see a little 'dust cloud' on the lane where the ball will be returned if you hit either gauntlet ramp. Hit the spinners if you want it on something else. It is kinda like el Dorado spinner for picking a mission. You don't know where it will end up, but you have a chance of changing it.
My all-time high score for I.G. before the tournament was 112+ million. While playing the tournament I was up to 56+ million until two days ago when I scored 319+million, securing 14th place. Before shutting down for the evening my score was bumped one place to 15th. When I scored the 319+ it replaced my tournament bonus from the Thor tournament, where I am on the leaderboard at 68th place, and is still showing the 319+. BUT, when I scored the 319+ it said "Congrats, this is your new high score" not "tournament" high score. I thought that was very odd!! THEN, when I played this morning before work, I scored a 66+ million and it said "tounament" high score. I checked the leaderboard and my 319+ was gone, replaced by the 66+. Heartbroken! Why??? Someone please explain, makes me not want to play the rest of the tournament. And that really sucks because I love this game, I play for hours every day!!!!!
welcome to the game & forums. I have stopped trying to understand what is going on with the leaderboards since ZenPinball. They still havent fixed the glitch where people have gigazillions of points for multiplayer on some of the tables...
EDIT: 1.5 billion. ugh...drained last 2 balls almost instantly.

hah hah. i dont think it is possible to cheat in PB. I used to get msgs like that all the time in multiplayer... like: "It is impossible to score that fast!" hah!
Well I won't be getting any slippers but somehow managed to squeak into the Top Ten! Was so psyched, finally broke past first shot at Wizard mode and got the badge. Pandora was on a roll, almost 850m! I don't know how long that game lasted, seemed like forever. I can't imagine what 4 billion game length was. I think I'll just settle with what I just did, know I wont be touching that. Just hope it holds up for the next few hours, wonder what the cut off time is in case I get another itch...anywho hadn't posted on here in a bit but was happy to finally get a chance to get in on a tourney. BTW anyone know what the little badge on the selection page is for? Participation in the tourney? It's above the trophy slots on the right.

I'm not sure I am even participating in this tournament as I have this bug on the score boards. I can play all the a see my all time score but can't compare to my friends weekly score or any other tables at all. I click tournaments/scoreboards there is a sound but nothing happens.
I just broke a billion today on this table. Had my best game ever thanks to the multitude of extra balls available to you. My score is 1,075 billion.
If by any chance someone could tell me where I'm at on the leader-boards? I'm pretty sure I'm not in top 10 but would like to see in comparison to other players.

Thanks in advance. And Shoguun, I tried your suggestion from that thread and it didn't work. Thanks though.
I saw your name on the tournament leaderboard last night near mine at around 450-500 million last night. It said 1 day remaining last night so I am not exactly sure when the tournament ends. If you don't hear back from anybody soon, I can check to see if your new score posted later tonight.
You were 8th.
wtf, did someone knock me outta 3rd? I couldnt play last night.. I was playing live music at a party which was way more fun !
Now that France won again the tournament, we have the same request than after the Ghost Rider Tournament : we want the PS3 section of Zen Forums to be in the colors of France (and don't forget all the stereotypes : Croissant, Beret, "La Marseillaise", a mime artist and accordion music).
Hey, you can make a table with that !
Can we also make old jokes about France?
French National Motto: When the going gets tough, "We Surrender"
Why are the streets of Paris lined with trees? Because the Germans don't like to march in the sun.
You forget to quote Captain America in "Fear Itself" : "Surrender ? Is this letter on my head is a F for France ?" But it's not the subject of this topic.
But, do you know why most roads on France are lined with trees, especially in the south ? Before the construction of highways (from 1930 to 1960), it was for the confort of Parisians who go on summer holidays, to be on the shadow when they were on a traffic jam. And now, it's for the confort of Germans who like to give us their money on our beach
I miss real french crepes MMMmmm
awsome Scores you made my French-Maffia Guys.... & " Mammouth stomped me , little Caveman down like a Fly " lol
