As some of you may have noticed, the World Pinball Player Rankings had not been updated since the end of 2014. The challenges to migrate over to the new system were tougher than anticipated, but we are excited to announce that we have made the necessary changes to implement verions 5.0 and we are now LIVE.
We've changed the calendar submission and result submission pages to help fit the new WPPR rules, so IFPA endorsed tournament organizers please pay attention. Should you have any questions don't hesitate to ask.
Please be aware that EACH tournament now requires a calendar submission. If your side event is not on our calendar, you will not be able to submit us results when the time comes. Please drop us an email and will add it for you.
The current rankings reflect some of the backlog of January events that we received, along with the expansion of player resumes from the top 15 results to the top 20. While pre-2015 event values have not changed, we have split any periodic events or combo events (Main+Classics) into separate line items on a player's resume.
Full details fo the WPPR v5.0 system can be found HERE.
