Simple answer = Stern shouldnt of released it so quickly. Was a very short time after Turtles. The company also damaged Turtles saying by releasing it so close.Agreed but it’s also clear that this game didn’t get the play testing that a normal Stern game gets - likely because of the virus for sure. Too many areas for stuck balls and too many post sale fixes.

CV19 is getting blamed for everything. It is clear in bad customer service it is a good scapegoat. Like 'oh, due to CV19 we can not get thru to the manufacturer......', 'due to CV19 your parcel will take longer to ship' - sorry but that is a bad excuse.
Those games got play tested in designers homes just like Turtles did. Do not forget Stern designers team up together, Elwins team are seperate to Borgs team, and I can not imagine them sitting on their backsides for 3 months doing nothing whilst Borgs lot are busy at it. I bet prototypes got put into at least 5 homes over lock down.
well a lot of people at home are experiencing broken subways, this MUST have been happening for them too and they didn't fix it. That doesn't take 1000's of played games.I can't say it was rushed, that would be an easy comment to make; but developing it from home meant less people would have played the game.
Just a thought, but aren't experts like Elwin slightly poor choices as testers? Sure, they'll play a lot, but they tend to hit the shots. You need duffers like me who miss shots to find places where balls stick (but then the increased practice is going to automatically limit the length of time somebody can be a good tester).Elwin definitely had an AIQ at home, it’s the one Jack is now using to stream.
And couldn’t agree more covid is the go to excuse at the minute. Stranger Things had issues following launch and theres still a tonne of people who can’t dial that mag lock in 100% and that was before covid.
Stern just don’t play test games like they used to, it’s been common knowledge for years they stopped a lot of their site testing. Every stern seems to have issues and fix kits some more than others but they all have time.
Pretty sure mines the same, have you tried turning the auto plunger power down? It worked for a load of guys over on pinside.
- Secret Skill Shot - adding a second Secret Skill Shot
My strategy with order of gems.Well, I'd like to say I found this through skilful experimentation of the initial shots available, though an inability to hit the shot I'm aiming for may be slightly closer to the truth!
Must admit, I'm struggling to figure out where/why/when to put gems and can't even really decide which one to go for first most games!
I don't think it needs anything. It's far enough above the playfield that any movement won't scratch it, and as the peg is through the hole it can't move laterally enough to adversely affect anything either, nor get permanently out of shape due to the spring in the metal.
