    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 agree! I would have liked to wait until ZP2 for a tournament, but it'll be here soon enough. Besides, we haven't had a tournament on PSN for a while, so it was definitely time, with or without ZP2!

    A full game means starting a new game and going until you get "Game Over." It usually starts sometime in the late morning/early afternoon, depending on when Microsoft pushes the button, so to speak

    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.

    The tournament menu doesn't work for me either, but selecting Infinity Gauntlet and simply starting a new game has updated my tournament status. Beyond that, I'd perhaps take a shot at troubleshooting the PSN side, making sure everything is working fine. Hope that helps.

    Yeah, when I click Play Tournament, it won't work, but just starting a new game works for it.

    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

    You can pick them "control" them? How? I thought it was random!

    Another question.


    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?

    The "magnet" is only active if you succeed in the gem mission. If not, you can hit the bumpers, but the magnet will not be active.

    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.

    Unhappy Where did my score go???

    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!!!!!

    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.

    PSN Id tenorgamer (want to change but can't)

    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.

    Wow cool. Didn't expect top 10 but that is reassuring. This was a great table for a tournament I think. Now if I cold only see my other scores from other tables and compare them to my friends scores. Sigh. ZP2 can't come soon enough.

    French Pinball Mafia, I am proud of you for the 3 first places.
    Jltcc, you let a non-french go to the 4th place, you have deceived the SPECTRE...
