    Holy crap! I got my score up high enough to grab 2nd, return the next day and a couple of players posted monster scores. Clearly they know how to play this table.

    Wow, fierce competition for this week's tourney on Ant-Man! Here's your top 5:

    1. terry2taps 575 million
    2. TarekOberdieck 537 million
    3. tritium03 441 million
    4. pr0mkin6 423 million
    5. da5id5 127 million

    Yep, there was clearly 2 separate groupings of players at the top, as there were another 5 scores in the hundred million battle. Good times!

    This next week's tourney starts now and continues the sci-fi theme with Portal. 3 balls, no wizard, your choice of passive upgrades. Ends 7 days from now.

    so the finished tournament reads a bit different for me on PS4
    1. terry2taps
    2. Tarek Oberdieck
    3. Hidden
    4. da5id5
    5. XAF//Smerrell

    (no Pr0mkin6 at all) Are some platforms not listed at all (xbone?) instead of Hidden

    And as for Portal - ITS ON, BRING IT

    Yeah, PS4 can't see Xbone scores and vice versa, but both can see Steam scores. That's why I've been posting them here too as I can see all the scores.

    that explains why the tournament screen shows my ranking (5th place) and the tournament player listing shows higher (4th place). so the intro screen reflects the actual placement that includes the missing xbone players.

    still confused about "Hidden" - are those steam players that opt to not show their user name?

    Couldn’t tell you. I know you can choose to only see your own system, so maybe that hides player? I’ve never come across it.

    Hehe, I kinda finally figured a thing or two out. Actually what I’m playing for now is to complete all the modes and see what happens in the final battle with GladOS. The score that comes with it is just a bonus.

    Wow, that Portal tourney was competitive! Not in scores being close, but with scores being leap frogged. Here the final results:

    1. Frantzl 1.4 billion
    2. da5id5 914 million
    3. NimbleLee 724 million
    4. shutyertrap 717 million
    5. pr0mkin6 347 million

    If you listen to the podcast, you'll hear me say one table but then I changed my mind and this week's table will be Alien: Isolation. As is fitting for a title like this, you only get 1 ball. Rewind is pre-selected for wizard upgrade and it's user choice for the other 2. Tourney ends on Saturday. Happy hunting!

    I really do. You don't get to enjoy the table for itself. Instead it could be any table and you're just frantically trying to collect points. What I would be willing to do, and maybe I will, is picking one table and over the course of say 2 weeks playing it in 3 ball, 1 ball, 5 minute, and survival. See if anyone could dominate all facets.

    I hope everyone had as much fun playing Alien: Isolation as I did this past week. I make no bones about it, that at the Aliens table are top of the heap as far as Zen tables go for me. Here's your top 5:

    1. shutyertrap 171 million
    2. NimbleLee 135 million
    3. p0mkin6 44 million
    4. Voo 29 million
    5. Bummpony 21 million

    I totally sniped first place at the end, sorry NimbleLee! I couldn't let myself lose on this one. Next tourney will post on Monday, don't know what I'm gonna pick yet. I'm also thinking more and more about the idea of doing multiple short tourneys using the same table over the course of a week or 2. So play it for a day in survival, another day with 5 minute, then maybe 3 days with one ball, and finish with 3 balls. Or variation of that. Question to you players is, would that interest you? Suggestions on length? Are there any tables you'd like to deep dive like this on? Lemme know.

    Oh, I thought I had this one! Nice work shutyertrap! The table was a bunch of fun. I do have to admit I felt a bit cheap leveling up my rewind power on the side to get my score up.

    Wait, you can level up the rewind wizard power? I thought only the passive powers could get upgraded. Huh.

    Speaking of, takes a long time to level those things up on this table. When tournament started, all mine were at base level, as is often the case for me. Usually by the end of the week, most are maxed out. This table, they’re all still around 5 or 6. I used bumper and distance up until the final say as those were yielding best for me. I switched out distance for multi ball knowing I could run the table and start final encounter and that wound up being the very thing that put my score over the top. I only had that up to a level 4.
