League dues are $20 per player. Money will be paid out to the top 3 places each week: $15 for 1st, $10 for 2nd, $5 for 3rd. The finals prize pool will be made up of the remaining funds.

Blizzard League Starts Tonight!

Blizzard League meets every Monday at 7pm starting tonight through August 5th. It’s $40 and you must be able to make 7 of the 10 weeks to be eligible to participate in League Finals on Monday August 12th. That means if you can’t make it tonight – short notice, I know – there will still be 9 weeks remaining so you can still play!

For those familiar with our Twitch stream but have not yet played in the Blizzard Pinball League, you’ll have the pleasure of playing alongside such greats as detimemachine, pezjohnson and lordhowardhurtz. What could possibly be a finer time??

To join the league just show up on league night, ideally by 6:30 so that Kevin McCarthy (league director) has ample time to put you on the roster. You can find more details and contact info for Blizzard here.

Note that these dates skip the third Thursday of each month for the LCP monthly along with July 4th which is on a Thursday this year, and August 1st is the weekend of Replay/FX and Pinburgh.

How it works:
Each week of regular season (runs for 10 weeks) players are placed into 4 player groups and matched with those who are ranked at similar ability. Everyone in the league plays the same 5 games in their respective groups.

The player who takes first on a game receives 4 points, 2nd place gets 3, 3rd place gets 2 and 4th place gets 1 point. The person who earns the highest score on a game out of everyone in the league that week receives a bonus point making 25 the total possible points any player can earn in a week. Total points earned divided by the number of games played makes up a player’s average. Players are ranked by their league average.

The standings (rankings) are submitted to the IFPA at the end of 10 weeks and it is your performance during the regular season that determine how many WPPRs you will receive.

Those in the top half of the standings will play in A Division Finals and the bottom half will play in B. League Finals are a head-to-head tournament where you compete for a percentage of the prize purse, made up of the league dues. MHPL pays out 100% of the league dues, less the $1/person IFPA endorsement fee.
