@Elandal Hey Buddy, yes it is your turn. So feel free to create the next tourney for PBFX3 and share the password to join here. I’d recommend creating the tourney on any platform other than PS4 as they don’t allow Switch players to join.

There are no set rules to govern your choice, however, we have tended to find the Williams/Bally tables on classic-arcade difficulty are the preferred tables and set-up for these tourneys among our little community. We tend to set the tourney for 7 or 10 days as these tables benefit from repeated and longer play to learn them.

So if you wanted to follow suit, the last two remaining tables from these that we’ve yet to do a community tournament on are ATTACK FROM MARS from Volume 2 and SAFE CRACKER from Volume 3. I imagine we will end up replaying some tables in the future as well: Volume 4 is also set for release some time in the near future one would imagine.

If you’d rather pick a Zen original table, that is also okay to do so. Just be aware that Switch users don’t have access to the Marvel or Star Wars tables currently. Also, Zen haven’t implemented the realistic ‘deep’ engine for those tables so it will only give you the option of the usual Zen physics I believe?

We also tend to leave it up to the tournament creator to decide whether they want to allow any of the ‘special powers’ to be used on Zen original tables. Ditto any specific time limit of 5/10 mins - it’s up to the tourney creator.

Hope that offers you some guidance? Look forward to what table you pick.

@Lroy Hi, many thanks for the exhaustive guidance!

Oh well, one of the remaining two tables is also one of my favourite, so let's go!

ATTACK FROM MARS | 7 days | Classic | Unlimited tries | Password = metroid

Created on Switch.

In the last tourney I forgot to change back the privacy settings to see users on all platforms so now no more "Hidden" user, sorry.

I'm ready to invade you!

Just putting this here for those interested: https://youtu.be/kxffqId09Kk

We’ll certainly be having tournaments on these tables come June I suspect.

There was an epic battle going on for first place but well done once again to the world renown digital pinball player Tarek for an incredible victory.

Warm welcome to the new people participating for the first time in this tourney and many thanks to everyone who took part.

We’ve got a mystery on our hands as to who the player is at the bottom. It’s their turn to pick the next table, so if this is you please make yourself known.

@Lroy Hi, forget the player at the bottom as the mystery is simple...
He's just me as I tried to play also on Xbox and I can't understand why is shown as "Hidden", as I have settings to see all. Anyway, since there isn't a possibility to link the various account on Zen, I will only play on one platform.

@Elandal Thanks for letting us know. It’s fine to play on different platforms and have more than one entry in the leaderboard. I know @monkeyspasm does that too.

Speaking of which, @monkeyspasm your next in line. Please select the next table and create the tourney for us. Post the password to join when ready.

Thanks.

No worries!

What tables have we not had? Is it just Safe Cracker? I'd prefer Medieval Madness but I think we've had it, haven't we?

Not really played Safe Cracker but could be a good time to learn

@monkeyspasm Yeah. We’ve only got SAFE CRACKER left from the Williams Volume table packs. Sure we’ll do repeat tourneys at some stage, plus Zen originals of course. But yeah, SAFE CRACKER would be a good one to round out the Williams tables ahead of the impending Volume 4 release of WHITE WATER, ROAD SHOW and HURRICANE.

Just a word of warning, some players who are in the process of trying to collect all the magic tokens on this table for the Wizard Goal have reported losing their progress if they enter a tournament on SAFE CRACKER. So join at your own risk.

Here’s some pics to wet the appetite:

Just a heads-up for anyone wanting to join in the AC/DC Premium high-score competition for May. The table is now on sale in EU eShop on Switch for less than a fiver.

You can also purchase it within a table pack in TPA for £8.99 or SPA.

Advice for SAFE CRACKER. Once you have managed to beat the top ‘rob the bank’ game and won a magic token, after your game ends PBFX returns you to the score screen. Hit play again and you will be able to select ‘Attack the Vault’ mode at the beginning of your next turn. This is a multiball mode which enables you to score more points, more easily.

Note: There’s one score missing off the very bottom (Zen still haven’t fixed this tourney leaderboard glitch) but that is a second entry by @monkeyspasm so it doesn’t count anyhow as he finished higher up playing on another platform.

Thanks to all who took part - healthy turn-out of 17 players. HUGE congrats to our winner ‘Tute_Primus’ and now it’s over to @CW13 to select the next table and create the tourney. Please be one of the new tables from Volume 4 which releases tomorrow 😉

@CW13 Hope the move goes smoothly without any sore backs. I’m frantically checking the Switch eShop to purchase the new tables but so far no luck. Think XBOX has already got them. Fingers crossed we’ll get Volume 4 on Switch in the next hour or two.

How’s everyone enjoying the new tables? The refined flipper physics are incredible. Zen just gets more and more like the real thing. All three tables are new to me and I’m enjoying them all despite having no clue what i’m doing. Hope to see some familiar names appear on the leaderboards 👍
