Is it just me or does watching Elwin play make you feel like a really crappy player? Reminds me of how much I suck at golf when watching the Pro's play.

#1952 77 days ago

wow the pro stream is so much better. good job jack. I actually feel like im learning the rules now. love it

#1953 77 days ago

Another idea for the reveal streams. Have all the stern employees that are in chat use official stern accounts with their name and title. That will help chat know who is responding to them.

Zoom probably isn’t the best idea to have them there unless their setup is top notch like the marvel guy had.

#1954 77 days ago

wow the soul gem mode is awesome. limited number of flips? that looks fun

#1955 77 days ago

I hope there’s a setting to make the flips more limited. You get like 8-10 extra flips per made shot. Seems like the limited flips will rarely come into play. Can’t wait to check it out though.

To be fair, that's how I feel when I see people post their high scores in the various owner threads...

Last night I thought about why I felt so different after one stream versus the other, and I think it boiled down to professionalism. The Marvel stream was obviously influenced by the way Marvel oversees all of their content. Jack was a little more restrained and focused in the Marvel stream as opposed to being off camera a lot chatting with other people in the same room, etc.. Having Justin Warner on there, a seasoned TV personality, really helped as well.

Marvel’s only rules were no swearing, no mentioning third parties. (Thinking back, I don’t even think ‘no swearing’ was even a rule)
They hired me to do what I do. (I want a heart emoji on Pinside)
I actually requested Justin, they had another person they wanted on stream with me.

Justin was great. As a novice his questions and commentary was well articulated and poignant. Get him back on your stream any time you can.

#1962 77 days ago

Great stream btw Jack! I liked the hurry up shot for Dr. Strange bank target being blocked by Dr. Strange post on spinning disc. Having to either move post or find another way-got me excited. Also really like limited number of flipper shots-unique way of adding another level of play.

Really hard for me to find anything to complain about for this title-which is rare for me. Only thing that is starting to irk me is Stern's choice to continue to use these bright vivid colors on all of their new titles. Starting to look like Skittles to me, especially in some newbie's game room with nothing but new bright Stern LE's-I can taste the rainbow.

Great point on the professionalism. I don’t think stern needs to do a lot, just a few little things that might help the main reveal stream go a bit smoother.

There should be an option to turn off the persistent ball save too, that would force you to use a few more flips to gain control.

Nah. Draining cuts a chunk of flips from the counter. I’m good with that.

I’m liking these timed modes with unlimited ball save. Stranger things has 1. Fun to know you have a certain amount of time to do the best you can.

That's cool that they didn't force many guidelines on you. For whatever reason this particular stream was a really good one!

For me it was watching how the Pro's made it look easy. Their skills are amazing! I used to really like watching Bowen on Youtube(still do)-usually PAPA videos, but now I enjoy watching reveal streams just as much.

Thought there was bonus scoring based on how many flips you had left at the end? So if you reduce the limited flips wouldn't you miss out on some scoring?

I’m guessing they will watch how easy or hard the soul gem is to complete and potentially adjust In future code updates by changing the drain ball flip reduction amounts. Not worried there.

And maybe this has been mentioned on pinside before; but, it would be nice to have in the code a mode select that is accessible from the coin door that allows for some standardized degrees of difficulty for the game to operate under (e.g. simple ones like Easy, Normal, Hard, Custom1, Custom2, etc...). That when changed would change a whole slew of the underlying options and make it easier for owners to flip between them based on who is going to be playing. Custom would be saved preferences. Standardized settings selections like this would be good for any future pinball that implements online play as well.

Machines have had this for awhile (except the Custom ones). Even a "Director's Cut" option. I think though they are just in the base software, not sure how much each designer spends tweaking them.

I’ve only owned a few Stern machines so far...I haven’t seen something comprehensive or that lets you store your personalized preferences to revert back to quickly. I’d much rather have deeper code than to focus on this aspect...but, I’m also hopeful it becomes a more standard platform thing down the road to make it approachable and customizable.

#1979 77 days ago

After watching a bit of the pro VOD - I kinda want a pro-mium version. Keep the lifting ring and subway, but lose the marvel ramp for the second spinner.

I feel that way on so many Sterns. Would love a JP with the raising raptor gate, but I knew from day 1 that the Trex head would be problematic. I love the magna slings in GB, but hate that ecto goggle crap and the subway ramp fails alot too. TWD, love the lifting ramp, but hate the crossbow that is another failure point. Also miss the walker bombs in a pro, but I think that could be addressed with a code update and have it use the tourney button on a pro. Sorry for the ramble. Looking forward to playing AIQ. That's why I think Keith's pros are the best. He doesn't make you feel like you're missing anything, even though you physically are.

Same with IMDN...I got a pro and don't regret it. Plenty of people having issues with the newton balls and sarcophagus locks on the premium/le versions.

#1983 77 days ago

Did anyone notice on the pro stream if there’s a callout when you get all 6 Avengers collected?

I was thinking earlier an “Avengers Assemble” callout would be awesome! It would also be a good audio que that you have collected all the avengers and the mini wizard mode has been qualified.

Whats problematic with the t rex head? Just because some got issues doesn't mean everyone has. After tweaking mine a bit it works perfect and really enhances the game. You can also turn it off to have your version that you want

We also love the bright colors. Dark colors harken way back to the old days, when artwork was so dismal. When playing, it is usually in a dark room anyway, so the colors are naturally muted. If you pulled the colors back, it would be unimpressive in darkened rooms, where most people play pinball.

Is there a video of the pro stream anywhere? I can’t find it.

You have to watch the archived VOD in marvels twitch page.

#1990 77 days ago

I think Marvel did a very smart move by bringing in Jack & the Deadflip brand, but doing it on their channel. That shifts traffic to Marvel, follows and subs to Marvel, and gives them ownership of the content.
It's what American should have done with the Hot Wheels gameplay reveal. Probably other examples as well. Bringing clicks and eyes to your content is king nowadays.

#1992 77 days ago
Quoted from bgwilly31:

I asked about 4x before ray finally answered me that Thanos was in the game at all. Hes stuck in a final wizard mode. And other than that only appears in tilt animations.
My favorite character is Thanos. LE has Thanos featured everywhere. So basically no one in my family would ever even see the guy. Thats just dumb.
The game should have a simple linear Story line that everyone knows and loves about Avengers.
-Battle Thanos and Minions at different locations for each Infinity Stone.
-If you lose Thanos gets it. If you win well you win.
-If thanos gets them all "SNAP" Game ends.
Instead we got a complex hard to follow, discombobulated, Thanoless Version of that With TROPHIES as the main feature.
EDIT::: I Misheard about TROPHIES> Ray explained that correctly Trophies are not required for Battle Thanos. I apologize
Not sure if you guys caught it. But only way to fight Thanos is by collecting 23 Flipping trophies. So now Trophies is more important than the Gems themselves.
Also explain why in the hell your not showing the Gauntlet. Damn near the only resemblance of a Toy you have in the Prem/LE on the reveal stream.
All that said Keiths Shot Layout looks a ton of fun. Just needed a decent story to go with it. And that gamma vision spinner is AMAZING.

This is exactly why I cancelled my LE. No real story (seen in the code), no good animations are generic and meh except Thor, no great music/sounds/callouts...the damn trophies...and no real interactive toys, no co op, and also almost no Thanos/Cpt America/Adam Warlock...
TMNT is way better. Has a soul and you really feel in the theme's universe...too bad. I really wanted to love this game, guess Im buying a Deadpool and get my superhero fix there instead.

You can't go wrong with Deadpool, it's an awesome game!

Code for Avengers looks very good to me so far. I really like the depth.

I did see in the Marvel stream that Ray said they would be adding at least one more Thanos mode at the halfway point after collecting 3 gems.

#1994 77 days ago
Quoted from awesome1:

Reminds me of the beging for Kiss code (owners begged for 2 years to update the unfinished code). Not that bad here.

#1995 77 days ago
Quoted from chuckwurt:

Do you had issues? Got it. Haha.

Yeah of course I understand what you mean. But I just had to correct it vertically with screws and the horizontal bias in the software to have no more rejects. If it don't works or has factory issues like the one in the tread thats another story. But toys that don't work are always a pain in the ass to repair.

But back to AIQ.
Still not sure if I want to go Pro or premium. Will wait for jacks stream to look how the premium shoots in his studio.

If another designer dropped this game like this, it would be a rampage right here.

Story is your fighting to get the gems off the black order before they hand them over to Thanos, pretty much the story in the infinity gauntlet and the story adapted for infinity war and endgame. The story to Deadpool... there really isn’t one, beat 3 villains, collect 2 lots of dna that’s kind of it, but it’s still super cool.

Ray announced yesterday I think that Thanos will be more present in the code and callouts with a halfway battle with him prior to the full on final battle with him.

Get what your saying about the animations they are probably a little marmite you either love them or hate them thankfully I love them and think they suit the theme perfectly.

But comparing AIQ to Deadpool and saying it’s got all the things AIQ hasn’t is just wrong (Deadpool is probably one of my most favourite games ever btw) they are on pair with animations they are marmite and about as complex/simple as eachother, AIQ lack of interactive toys? Deadpool has less than AIQ, Deadpool as the katana lock that’s it, lil Deadpool doesn’t count, it’s a bobble head above a target, AIQ has the subway lock (same in essence as the katana lock), magnetic avengers tower and rising spinner are all interactive with the ball.

Deadpool is the same 3 modes over and over with 2 other modes built in, with an easily achievable Mechsuit multi ball that overrides everything and serves no purpose.

Oh yeah you can advance to the next level modes, but they're the very much the same.

Luckily the game once dialled in is super fun too shoot and play. It is very samey but so far I’ve not got bored of it as it’s just such fun to play and easily one of my all time favourites!

The only thing I’ve never understood in the “story” of Deadpool is why do we collect 2 lots of DNA and hand it over to mr sinister to then have to fight his megakrakeldonousrex creation!? The fact that is made up of 3 lots of DNA bugs the hell out of me as the Kraken was originally going to be a mode in Deadpool but they removed it for some reason.

AIQ has one of the most known and recognised storylines in comic book lore running through it, really don’t understand these it doesn’t have a storyline comments.
