Wizards Scoreboards FAQ

Zaccaria Pinball Unofficial "Hall of Wizards" - FAQ

How is calculated the Wizard Score ?

Each scoreboard has a coefficient (Achievements and Simulation = 3, Arcade = 2, Others category = 1, User = 0).
Each ranking has an amount of points (top5 : 2000 points, top10 : 1000, top25 : 500, top50 : 250, top 100 : 100).
Wizard Score sums coeff x points earned. Simple and easy !

So, yes, it's a fact, more you have pinball tables, more you can score.
So, if you want to compete seriously for Wizard Score, it's highly recommended to get the "Platinum Bundle" ...

Why I can't find my last scores or even my profile ?

First, these pages are not refreshed in real-time.

The profile informations may be not completed due to some privacy limitations settings.
Also, in order to limit useless WEB requests, only the first 150 players of each scoreboards are kept.
At last, the process tries to eliminate cheaters from ranking ...

How I can contact the player behind these page ?

For any comment, suggestion, bug report, you can contact me via my profile on STEAM.
Feel free to add me as friend too if you want :)
