The only possible thing that could.

You are probably not going to believe me on this one, but I don't care. During multiball on my Earthshaker, I managed to catch a ball in the inlane with a ball dropping on top of it. I immediately shot the center ramp which sent another ball down the left return ramp. All 3 balls were stuck. I actually had to remove the glass...

Nope. Don't believe you.

Pulled the glass and put back in the shooter lane?

Nah, I manned up and just let it drain.

Those are good ones. Here's mine. I walked away from the machine to answer a phone call. When I came back this is what I found.

Had a similar thing happen on my Getaway (only 2 balls), but they freed themselves by the time I got the glass pulled down.

Ah come on Frax. A simple nudge could save that one. Haven't you learned anything from Bowens video's.

I'm so disappointed in you right now.

Man, the one time I legitimately tried to learn to bangback/death save, I really hurt my hand. Instead of hitting the cabinet, I misfired and my wrist slammed into that raised edge on the WPC coindoors? F that... I'm done with trying that!

I am more impressed you have a Waterworld without wear by the mylar patch like 99% of all other Sys3 games do

Did this one on my Shadow. Couldn't duplicate this in a million years.

Okay, that's just as impressive. How on earth did the drop target latch into place like that?

That has happened quite a few times to me on my Shadow over the years.

since this thread is about catching a pinball on a flipper can anyone give me some hints on how to live catch a ball on the right flipper when TZ kicks out the ball from the slot machine. I get it once every 50 times. I never know if I am flipping too late or too early. Most of the time the ball gently goes into the rocket when I miss the live catch. Any help would be great. I have to learn to control the ball more.
thanks a lot.

That's what this thread is about?

Let it bounce over to the left flipper.

Mine comes out so hard, doing that gives less control than trying to live catch it. I'm better off drop catching it and immediately doing a left spiral.

The targets didn't reset fast enough and the kicker got the ball right over the targets again before they reset. It actually took me a minute to figure out where the ball vanished to before I found it.

Thats funny, I just had the same thing happen a few nights ago.
