Quoted from Whysnow:
really surprised to hear you say that Levi. GB is a thing of beauty in the geometry department. Every shot feels super smooth and just right (aside from the right ramp, but with tunig in that is even fun to hit).
What dont you like about it?
Wow!!!! I think GB is a brick fest. The ramps are not smooth and the ball stays in the pops forever. I wish it could be tweaked. You get air balls galore and the ball hits the ramp on the premium. It definitively has major major design flaws.
Quoted from Texasff78:
These shots were taken from the normal shooters viewpoint with normal lighting. Not close up at all with the glass on.
My guess is air balls are hitting left ramp and causing this. Probably should change the pitch. Mine has two like these and I saw hairball to ramp cause one.
On the cornerstone game they are still cutting costs. My magnet is dimpled, and my guess is they are using soft wood. My bet is later releases will get Mylar as they did with kiss.
I may have to use vinyl cling on mine. The air balls are causing this. Air balls from the ball bouncing off the targets.
Quoted from kpg:
Thanks for this. I guess it's hard for some people to realize the only reason I'm pissed at Stern (now) is because they sold me a $8,000 piece of shit- and 6 months ago Gary promised to make it right, then ignores me for a couple months - months that I didn't even say anything about them here on Pinside.
Funny thing is when I made a stink about it 6 months ago here on Pinside, Gary Stern called me again and asked if I could "turn it down online" because he knew I was creating a shit show. He didn't like that of course. I know he doesn't like it now either lol.
I'm definitely not a consumer that lets companies sell me a $8K POS then come on here and praise it like some of these other jack asses. You know 99% of the people who bought BM66 know it's a turd bucket but will defend their purchase like it's their own child.
PS- dzoomer - that was f*ckin weird you spent all that time reposting me - you need to get a damn life
This is what gets me. It's bad press for Stern. It's bad press for Tilt. One of these people should have corrected it. I had issues on my GOT and Coin taker solved them. Very happy and will only get games from them. Some vendors realize the value of the customer. I do not think Stern cares so much, but some distributors do. I do not like BM66, but my game currently works. I also know Cointaker will make things right if I have an issue. This is piece of mind for me. It comes down to how hard will your distributor work for you.
KPG, I feel for you and hope your a actions get Stern to rethink how they handle things. Gary is a liar until he replaces your PF. I hope some people ask him about it at shows.
