Quoted from nicoy3k:

Pro looks awesome... Sometimes less is more. I am really not sure that the marvel ramp is better than the spinner U shot

Pro did look great and I love my Deadpool Pro, but I'm going with the Premium on this one.

Quoted from nicoy3k:

I like a lot of pro pins as much as the premium. I would have bought SW pro but only just had to get the premium because of the hyper loop. I did love the horseshoe turn on the pro (premium has that too but it’s smoother on the pro).

I really like little U shaped orbits. I’m going to need to play both before I decide.

#1903 78 days ago

Great job on the stream today Jack. With the feedback reaction from Keith and seeing more of the game, I’m definitely in for a premium.

Excited to see more polish and Thanos action. Game could use more humor and fun quotes, especially from Thanos, but looking very good overall.

#1904 78 days ago

Still waiting until Wednesday to make my final decision but im already selling stuff to justify buying my first premium.

#1905 78 days ago
Quoted from Thunderbird:

Thanks Jack for a great stream and elevated language being family friendly, whole family could watch and enjoy too. Loved your explanation of basic pinball skills and showing the depth of AIQ in a simple way. It all makes better sense now. Fun game, that if the first stream would have been like this, would not have had questions in most people’s minds about the rules of the game.
Your setup is better, as the ramps look easier to make, unlike the setup of the first broadcast.

Ramps are easier to make cos it isn’t the Premium as per first stream. This is the PRO model.

Enjoyed the stream much more though. Could hear music better and call outs!

Thanks Jack! You’re a legend! deadflip

#1906 78 days ago
Quoted from RPZ:

Ramps are easier to make cos it isn’t the Premium as per first stream.

Why do you think the pro ramps are easier? The ramps the pro has are the exact same as the premium.

It’s missing the marvel ramp. That’s it. That is a tough shot it seems.

#1907 78 days ago

I feel the spinny raised up gobble and inverted ramp are enough to go premium/LE for me.

Pinball magic is expensive.

Are you mad, lad? Ramps are easier because the game is setup per recommended pitch!
The LE that was setup was uber-difficult so they wouldn't play for extended periods of time and blow it up.
After watching Jacks stream today, I am STOKED to be in on an LE. Can't wait to be flipping combos on the Captain Marvel shot and up the center ramp, etc. This game is gonna rock, I expect.
If anyone bailed because they dont get the vibe, then ok I guess? But if you bailed because the ramps looks too tough or you thought the game didn't flow, I think you have erred. Fortunately, there are Premiums for you in the future.

Quoted from nicoy3k:

It is. It‘s something more gratifieing every time you make it compared to a „normal“ shot. (Wich needs heck of a lot of spins.)

#1910 78 days ago
Quoted from DeadFlip:

Ayyyy thanks for all the kind words, folks!
That was a blast.
Huge shout to marvel for trusting me to take over their channel. Justin, for those that don’t know, is a buddy of mine and Food Network royalty!
I got my premium ready to come to the studio for the big test!

deadflip Great stream, I think a lesson can be learned here for the future. This format was fun and informative, having the sound direct in made a huge difference as well. Keith and Raymond are great guys and amazing pinball players but this is what a reveal should be . As a side note Turtles reveal was amazing too, I have to say the stream on Wednesday was just a little lacking. All good learning lessons for the future. Look forward to seeing the premium being played by you next week, I stumbled into an LE when my distro said he got me one. , listed my Simpsons(which is also yellow) and it sold in 5 mins. I think its meant to be Hope I dont miss Homer! DOH!

I want the people that made the game revealing the game. Pick a structure and stick to it. I just want to be able to expect the same process every time.

I don’t need hype. I just want the game presented by the people that made it. If they want that opportunity, they deserve it. Also get jack more information about the game before the stream. It doesn’t help when he’s got no clue on the rules. If he’s in the know too he can help with chat and keeping the discussion on track.

Oh yeah def agree , they should be there . But maybe a good MC(Jack) etc . Turtles worked because Dwight was so geeked out .

#1913 78 days ago

Dwight’s reveals are the BEST. Love the passion.

#1914 78 days ago

Imo, the two reveals should have been done in reverse order and then the LE stream would have been better received and made more sense.

#1915 78 days ago
Quoted from chuckwurt:

Yeaaaah, but I don't feel this stream was targeted at all to us, even though quite possibly it might have been many of us watching.

It wasn't at all a great stream for the purpose of learning the game, we had a good bit of that already, but more so to be light, fun and entertaining for people entirely removed from pinball, and that it excelled at!

Side note, I'm kinda feeling I like the shots and layout a lot more than the code....

#1916 78 days ago
Quoted from wesman:

We were talking about the reveal stream. Not the stream from tonight.

Tonight’s was awesome for a completely different reason. I hope they do more stuff like tonight’s stream too.

I really like the shots and layout...believe this will bring a nice change-up and variety to my lineup...fun times...much needed

#1918 78 days ago

Did @deadlip stream the pro tonight?

#1919 78 days ago
Quoted from Pinball-NJA:

Did @deadlip stream the pro tonight?

Marvel did. Jack hosted it.

#1920 78 days ago

The music and sounds effects sounded great today. This just proves my original theory that the original stream had poor sound quality which kinda ruined the launch of the game for some people. It left people wanting more and made the game seem incomplete, but today's stream just solidified my decision to stick with a Premim.

#1921 78 days ago

Anyone have the link?

#1922 78 days ago
Quoted from Pinball-NJA:

Anyone have the link?

Go to twitch and search Marvel.

#1924 78 days ago
Quoted from PoMC:

Stream should have just removed the player camera if everyone is just going to wear masks.

remove it anyway. Who the hell wants look at those guys?

#1925 78 days ago

It's probably the first time I didn't like the music in a recent Stern pinball game. Some parts of the music tracks just don't sound like they fit with what is going on (battles for example).

One other thing is that so many times I hear a callout and I have no idea which character is talking. Sometimes the speech is from a character that's not even represented on the LCD.

The game looks fun with lots of thought in the rules. I kind of like the Marvel spinner on the pro more than the ramp, but I'm also a sucker for physical ball locks like on the premium/LE. Maybe it's better I missed the LE boat and will decide later if I want one and which one that would be. I bought enough new Stern games in the past year...

Whooooops! My bad.

You're always on the ball, makes more sense now, given the context!

#1929 78 days ago

I’m excited for Wednesday.
The game we’re taking home is Elwin’s personal game. Un-serialed. I think he may have cried when he rolled it over to me.
I heard him whisper “my baby”.
Couldn’t tell if he was referring to the game or if he was crushing on me.
Either way...

#1930 78 days ago
Quoted from djsoup:

I'd like to see a reverse mode where you can plays as Thanos or maybe a vs mode so you can fight for control of the gems vs the Avengers in 1v1, 2v1, 3v1. Could be fun stealing gems back and forth.

Can’t let this idea fade...in my view vs. mode would destroy co-op fun-wise, and this would be unique. I (we?) want vs. mode!!! Don’t forget 2v2. Stealing gems back and fourth, and add in some flip count final battle...golden.

#1931 78 days ago

This game’s code, in theory, feels like Batman 66.
There is the stuff up front everyone can do, it’s fun, easy, and accessible.

The gems, and their placement, can become as challenging as you want to make them (like the minor villains in BM66) Collect them for their primary objective ezpz, or exploit their nuanced powers and go for some strange/exciting scoring setups.

#1932 78 days ago

I think Jack just sold a ton more games for Stern with this format. They owe you big time Jack, and how you explained the rules and tips on playing better etc was magic! I would have loved to have seen the Premium/LE presented in the same way. Live and learn and you my friend hit this stream out of the park!

#1933 78 days ago

Elwin's pros are the best. It didn't seem like the pro is lacking at all. As always, the pro will be faster and more punishing for us tourney sadists lol. He makes sure the best features are not stripped out.

Thanks dude!
We’re gonna give the LE/Prem the old DeadFlip studio gloss once it gets to my place!

#1935 78 days ago

During battles, I had the feeling with lcd animations there were negative shots, i mean villains shots to defeat avengers if you hit them (like a mode on Alien game). I assume the aim of battle is avengers win.maybe i’m wrong, but i believed there were colored shots for avengers team and other colored shots for villains team.

Correct?

#1936 78 days ago

I want to buy this game obviously because it's an Elwin game, but also love the gamma ray and points potential on it.

And the counting flips mini-wizard mode is spectacular.

#1937 78 days ago

Keith wearing a G.O.O.N. shirt, I know you’re hinting that your next game is Goonies. Your secret is safe with me .

#1938 78 days ago

Man, watching the Pro I gotta say, the Pro is missing out stuff. Except it is not missing out on anything. It rocks. What a great tandem.

Are we goining on the front page of twitch?

#1940 78 days ago

Man that translite on the Pre is stunning. I want a poster of that. This won't be popular but after watching the streams I'm liking the Pro. The game in general isn't for me, theme and thus far the audio aren't my taste but I think after the Pros come on the used market its gonna be worth buying and playing this game, shots and rules looks great.

Right here, this is perhaps the most exciting thing I could have read. The minor villains in MB66 MAKE that game awesome. So excited to get my Premium Avengers!!!

Those are henchman shirts that Stern made when they launched Batman66.

Since Keith is wearing free Stern shirts given to him 3 years ago they must not be paying him enough. He's been killing it with his first 3 designs so he deserves a a raise or at least a nice bonus.

Stern please give Keith a raise so he can afford some new shirts!
