    Log in issue still unresolved, preventing access to any Leaderboards or Tournament play.

    This may just be affecting PS3 users? ;-j
    How!? ;-j

    Possibly silly question, as I'm starting to play more of these tournaments: when your table score gets posted, if it's less than your last score on that table, does that replace the higher score, and bring down your overall total?

    Nope, your highest score is the only one kept.

    Same here. I've doubled twice. One regular skin game, one trough the mystery.

    Playing on iOS (iPad) and crashes out of app to iOS homescreen when selecting 'Goin' Nuts' in the tourney. Anyone else experiencing this? (All other tables are fine)

    I think that table was bugged during an update a few weeks ago. Go to Table Management, delete it from your iPad, then download it again.

    This was the first time I played R911 for more than a couple minutes and it's not as bad as I thought. Not great, but not bad. If modes lasted longer and could stack it'd be more interesting.

    Also confirmed that Teed Off still sucks.

    My first real plays on R911 & TO too.
    Have to agree with you.
    TO I CANNOT get a decent score on I think I'm 200th on Mobile Gold for TO - Will try again tonight before tourney ends

    Strategy for both tables is the same. You need one good multiball with a lot of 300M jackpots. Thats all. And perhaps a double score from the skin game feature for Teed Off.

    knowing how to false start multiball in R911 helps, select 1 of two multiball modes before plunging by flipping left or right, hit the call 911 lane which locks a ball, then change the mode to something else which immediately starts multiball. It only works for the first round of modes but perhaps you wont need more than that if you want to build and collect the maximum jackpot value.

    I don't think it works on mobile - the flippers are locked down during the plunge so the mode can't be changed.

    not at all? I know there's a bit of delay before the flippers will work even on PC, between hitting start and the flippers responding to inputs. Feels like a solid 2~3 seconds before flippers respond in game.

    started first 4, 2-ball, multiballs moving the mode selection away then once the first set of modes were played I showed even if you re-lit the helicopter it wouldn't lock balls there for 'cave in' or 'jaws of life' anymore. Since this is a 6.5 minute video you wouldn't need to worry about restarting multiball quickly that many times anyway.

    On mobile the plunger and the flippers are controlled by the same touch zone, so when the ball is on the plunger the flippers are disabled and vice versa. It's like that on every table that doesn't have a button/auto launch.

    Well, at least I had first place for a day or two. Second ain't bad. I really enjoy R911, TO, and Xenon, so I took this one a little more seriously than previous tournaments.

    5th - stomped the early solid state machines, Gold at last! One gripe is that the early SS tables don't seem to register high scores, so that's two times I've beat my last Wizard goal on Firepower: beating 750k. First time I did it I hadn't finished the standard goals so it didn't count apparently, SIGH.

    32nd on PSN gold. I think that's my highest and I doubt I'll beat it. You guys are savage.

    Don't forget, absolutely NOBODY (at least that I know of) that competes on PS3 was involved in that tournament due to the ongoing PS3/PSN issue. I own all tables on PS4 as well, so for this tournament I used the PS4. Just go to the Tournament page on the PinballArcade website, click PSN, and look at the previous tournaments. The difference in attendance is huge.
