IFPA introduces the POWER 100!

While the World Pinball Player Rankings (WPPR) have been the driving force that we have used to rank players all around the world since 2006, we have experimented with other metrics over the years to help highlight who the greatest pinball players are in the world. The IFPA Ratings system and Efficiency Percentage have been two of those additional metrics, both available on our main ranking page HERE.

We’re excited to add a new metric to the IFPA family, and we’re calling it the “POWER 100”. Understanding that every metric has it’s own pros and cons when trying to rank players accurately, the POWER 100 metric focuses specifically on data from just the top 250 players ranked through the WPPR system.

The POWER 100 measures the winning percentage of those top 250 ranked players against only the other top 250 ranked players over the last 3 years of active results. The “Best of the Best” end up making it on the POWER 100 list.

    Great initiative! Have you considered having a minimum number of games to be counted? I see that Zach Sharpe has over 2200 games, while for example Peter Watt doesn’t have 200. I think the NBA does something similar when it comes to shooting percentage. I.e. you can’t just shoot and make 1 3-pointer to be counted.

    How do you defne a “win” over another player? Finishing above that player in the final results of a tournament? Winning a game in head-to-head playoffs?

    What about W.O. losses (not too uncommon, for example when a tournament lasts much longer than expected).
