    This thread surely isn't giving me confidence in my deposit lol No excuse but the worst experience I've ever had is with Spooky and it was awful. I or my friends have had a miserable experience with every manufacturer. Pinball is hard and sometimes you order a new Stern and have to spend countless hours fixing something as simple as a scoop.

    Watched the video. Chris seems sincere but I don't have a real sense of where this will go at all. I am sure that you can salvage somethings from Deeproot and apply lessons learned but I believe that even having a tertiary linkage to Deeproot could be troubling. As we have seen time and time again and in the whale thread, pinball is hard.

    The news will answer this question. WW3 might start over this place? It didn’t over Ukraine. A sea based invasion is the worst attacking position possible. 30 planes going into an airspace isn’t an invasion. Russia does it to Alaska on a regular basis. Could China start stuff tomorrow, sure. And 2022 could be the year that 2 communist superpowers are so economically crippled they can’t afford to saber rattle for a decade or more. I guess we will see. Anyway, back to “pinball is hard”. :)

    Deposit profiteering - we can fix this Post #76 in topic

    Posted 152 days ago by pabrimmer – in Buying and selling advice ‐ Last reply 107 days ago

    Distributors are losing out on massive profit in this current environment. That might be the real travesty here. Distributors are providing a service, so I'm sure it does feel bad when scalpers who are providing nothing of value walk away with money that's been left on the table. But I think the "Pinball is hard," saying mostly applies to the people designing and building the games, so I'd much rather see the silly money ending up in their hands.

As long as it gets fixed I’ll be happy. I just wish they would start testing these things a little better. It would save them a lot of trouble in the long run. That said, pinball is hard, and I will not pretend to completely understand just how hard.

    What I have learned from this thread: #1. Don't invest in a start-up. Wait until they produce a pin. #2 Refrain from sending pro-order money. If you do, use a credit card that allows charge backs. #3 Don't ever buy into anything JPOP. He has proven time and time again to be a COMPLETE failure at producing pins. #4 Spend less time on Pinside and more time enjoying the hobby and life in general. But while on Pinside, try to state your opinions without making personal attacks. #5 Pinball is HARD.

    https://youtu.be/aLUuOm1APOk Game #1 finally enroute from Haggis. And note the most prominent statement in the video “Let me just sum it all up, making pinball is HARD” Maybe DR just needs to go thru a 12 step pinball program like here: https://www.verywellmind.com/the-twelve-steps-63284 Note Step 1: Honesty. I think I would include in that “pinball is hard not easy”. Yeah start there and see where it gets you.

    not just pinball. COVID Pinball. lets not stick words in his mouth now.. he DID only say pinball was easy. Covid pinball is hard, lol I rather it be a rare vs. a super rare game, which is why I was pulling for 500. Fair enough. I wouldn't mind playing it one day, more is always better. almost always better I should say.. there are a few games that there are already too many of, like TB. ;)

    Its weird. It got the worst wrap when it released and somehow there are still people in the hobby that won't give it a chance. I have friends that just won't accept the game... strange. They just can't get past there are no toys or interesting mechs on the pro. I think lots just don't like the fact you have to chase your multiplier around to truly get a decent score.
