Stern needs to step it up now! Where are the calls from Gary Stern!
Found some pooling in my iron maiden, Aug 2018 build date.
Not buying another stern or JJP product till this is fixed.
Quoted from C_Presley:
Called my distributor yesterday when he wanted final payment for jp2 LE. I asked him his position and what he’s heard. Stern is STILL saying 7 or 8 documented cases.....
This is such trash. Stern keeps hiding their head in the sand.
I am not making any new purchases besides maybe CGC CCr in the upcoming future if these issues are not addressed head on.
I really want a JP but won't roll the dice on a $10,000 CND machine.
I feel like everybody on pinside has drank the Stern Kool-Aid and has forgotten about playfield issues besides this thread.
How could Stern possible address the issue fully in a few weeks.
Wait a new pin... Squirrel!
Quoted from Chambahz:
Nope, I saw that too. But the regular Pinside naysayer/Stern bashers are a little too quick to assume that this was made recently, in my opinion.
From what I've read on here, the first "corrected" playfields were received last Friday? If that's accurate, it's highly likely that the Elvira playfield was made before that. (They had time to complete a video on it, and take press release photos, right?)
I'm just saying that the new playfields are already in Pinsiders homes so let's wait to hear from them to see if the problems are fixed, instead of assuming that they aren't.
You sound like a Stern apologist.
If Stern would come out and state the issue was addressed, we wouldn't have to guess.
Quoted from Chambahz:
Riiiiiiiight. If you’re not bashing Stern, you’re an apologist.
People like you make Pinside the LEAST pinball-friendly site there is.
Considering your collection doesn’t contain a single Stern title, you “Sir”, sound like a troll.
I have two pins right now, one is a Iron Maiden Pro.
Quoted from NightTrain:
I’m sure Stern is following this thread, so hear this Stern.
I haven’t paid much attention to Pinside/Pinball in about a year. I follow Stern on instagram and saw 3lvira was announced. I popped on Pinside to read the chatter and decided to buy the game. I called distributors and got the best price I could find. I was minutes away from picking up the phone and ordering the machine and then I stumbled on this thread. I reluctantly decided to pass on 3lvira. I purchaesed a HUO Dialed In with the funds instead.
Stern - You have to come out and address this issue. I firmly believe a public announcement would be best, but I’m aware that your lawyers wouldn’t like that. I am out on new Sterns and JJPs until these issues are fixed. These games simply cost too much for these issues to be happenening. Pinball is more art to me than a game. The quality of the Playfield is important.
I am in the same boat, Stern is losing customers.
It is really sad that Stern leaves us all guessing about playfields. I use others as guinea pigs to see if a game with have pooling and chipping issues.
Want a JP, but Stern avoidance makes me nervous. They know it is an issue. They put washers under the posts on purpose, cause they know there is an issue.
It is hard for me to buy a pin when U have little faith in the transparency of the company..
At least Jersey Jack stated and acknowledged the issue. Stern thinks avoidance is the best. Sad cause I think their games are really interesting right now, but I can't blow my hard earned cash on a gamble, I want a quality product.
