Unfortunately, the same thing just started to happen to my Premium.
I unboxed it only two weeks ago.
I've stopped playing the game till I address the issue.
For now, it's a single crack--and a raised bubble to its right.
I know it will all cover under a Cliffy shooter lane protector (when they're ready); but that's not the point.
This didn't happen to my TRON LE (while I waited for a Cliffy).
Didn't happen to my SM (PO didn't have a Cliffy installed).
Still hasn't happened to my FGY (no Cliffy is available).
There is definitely something wrong with the lack of clear coat they applied in this area on this title...and it sucks big time.
(Open and zoom my pic for the circled area with the arrow under the ballponit pen; that represents the left--and single crack--to the left of the bubble.)
Cliff has sent me shooter lane protectors for TRON & TSPP (his only Stern shooter lane protectors at present) to see if they'll fit on ACDC. Hopefully, marking changes will be easy and we can get that ball rolling. I'll get on the project as soon as they arrive.
However, I do think we need to speak up on this matter IMO.
