    Enough with the negativity regarding dr, let's post up some positive aspects of deeproot (dr).

    I'll start.

    dr has spent more money on a single pins development, then any company has before. Showing real commitment to the industry!

    Well, they haven't killed anyone. At least not that we know of.

    dr was singlehandedly responsible for a lot of cute dog and cat pictures being posted in pinside in the past few days. That's got to be worth something!

    Deeproot has zero Playfield issues on Pins they have shipped

    #5 73 days ago

    The paychecks came until they didn't!

    #6 73 days ago

    Deeproot has spawned a variety of bittersweet but nonetheless entertaining Pinside threads, which serve as a case study in schadenfreude and Dunning-Kruger syndrome.

    #7 73 days ago

    Noone was harmed during dr pinball development. 7 people died

    #8 73 days ago

    Their staff is a shoe in to win an Assistant Secretary of Health look-alike contest.

    #9 73 days ago

    Deeproot has provided Pinside years of entertainment.

    #10 73 days ago
    Quoted from Lhyrgoif:

    Noone was harmed during dr pinball development.

    Haven't seen this old school Pinside joke in awhile.

    Yeah Peter Noone photos took a precipitous dive around here, totally unrelated to Odin being nuked.

    Not sure if this was meant to be sincere or not. Probably not as your next comment can easily be takin as another underhanded attempt at humor. Again nothing funny about fellow pinheads getting ripped off. Drain...

    #14 73 days ago

    "Deeproot" is a pleasant enough combination of syllables I had never said out loud before the company, and now I've said them a couple of times.

    Quoted from tp:

    right. 'cuz there was no absolutely no fair warning, and they had no way of seeing this coming.

    here's something to consider before poo-poo'ing on the one fun thread that's been produced today.. putting a deposit on RAZA after all the events of the previous years, both with Deeproot and all the other failed Pinball Companies, is absolutely no different than buying a stock after it drops 80% in a day on some really bad news, in the hopes they'll resolve/overcome it and it'll spike back up. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. they knew the risks, they took the gamble, and they lost. they have no one to blame but themselves. they do not need your sympathy. and in most cases, don't want it. end of story.

    here's my positive contribution: John Popadiuk wants to water your plants. C'mon, somebody's gotta water them. Why can't it be him? Please, let the man water your plants!

    Keep in mind that it may take 5 years to redesign the watering can with some premium features and logos before the plants can get watered.

    I don’t think there’s been a pinball preorder scam in history with this many naysayers and warnings, bright red neon electric red flags and honest to goodness PLEADING for our fellow pinheads not to take the bait.

    It’s sad that people are gonna Lose thousands of dollars but beyond that I don’t know what to say. You’d have to be a masochist or a rich show off to plunge money into this quote obvious disaster.

    #19 73 days ago

    RM used his recent isolation to redesign the deeproot logo. Sparing no expense, he had a signmaker painstakingly craft a neon version to greet visitors as they enter the front door. Explained Robert, “the f appears and it is followed by the u, leaving the viewer with a secret message. The middle finger stays on all the time, as a symbol of my commitment to the web of deeproot projects. Editor - also collectively known as deeproot’d or Robert’s Ruse”.

    Positive vibes only. Do you not have a "positive" to contribute? I mean, you have money involved, surely there has got to be something positive you can think of?

    deeproot re-ignited my love of doing poor photoshops

    #22 72 days ago

    I can think of one positive thing: they donated a playfield that raised money for charity a couple months ago. Everything else might be terrible, but they actually do have a good news story somewhere in the raza thread.....

    #23 72 days ago

    Thanks DR for reminding us, delayed gratification builds character!

    #24 72 days ago

    To my knowledge, deeproot has not perpetuated a single cryptocurrency scam to date.

    They've only taken preorder money on a very small percentage of their announced titles (1 out of 38).

    Quoted from blueberryjohnson:

    Nah, doesn't count, they said they would take 0. So even 1 might as well be 38!

    Don't be negative

    Queue the:
    "So your saying there's a chance" meme of choice!

    Or

    "Take my handful of $$$" meme!

    Those are positively cool!

    #30 72 days ago

    It's going to be easier to build 119 Raza, with all that Deep cash, than it was for Spooky to build 150 AMH, since Spooky only had 50 K to start with.

    Easy!

    If you ignored all the warning signs plastered everywhere since zidware 1.0 almost 10 years ago, and still yet didn’t have the instinct to ask for refunds a month ago. Then you no longer were ripped off, you gambled on a slim hope and lost. Put on your big boy pants and stop crying. You learned your lesson the hard way.

    Another positive. This is a thread regarding the original RAZA and jpop 1.0 , which is a full 24,000 posts, compared to 21,000 in the dr RAZA thread.

    https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/jpop-update-thread%e2%80%a6%e2%80%a6%e2%80%a6%e2%80%a6%e2%80%a6mg-raza-and-aiw%e2%80%a6

    That's got to be a record, 45,000 posts with not 1 RAZA produced. Well done and glad to be a part of it.

    Shout-out to PDX monkey for calling bs on post #8 of that thread, way before jpop hooked up with RM for zidware 2.0

    But the op of that thread says he's starting it because he got kicked out of an earlier jpop thread. So which thread is that and how many posts does it have?

    For the most part, the art & animations on RAZA looks pretty nice.....if they released a translite & I trusted RM with a payment (which I don't) then I would buy one

    Straight from the jpop zidware 1.0 thread I posted. Exhibit #54.

    Rommy getting cold feet after sending money, and getting the cold shoulder. Beware!

    "March 2013! That was my last email from Zidware. After I sent payment. I shot them an email today, wonder if they lost all my account info or just forgot?"

    Dont say you were not warned! 7 years ago, and 45000 posts later.

    Robert was hilarious in the film Office Space. His “show her my O face” line is one of my favorites! He’s obviously gained a few pounds since the film was released 20 years ago but I’m sure fans recognize him and ask for selfies and autographs.

    3 people recognized it for what it was and asked for refunds.

    #39 72 days ago

    Yes! The positive topic!!!
    I seemed to be among the few who like to see deeproot succeed.
    If it was only for shutting up the haters man.
    How long is it humanly possible for people to troll and hope for the worst?
    (Sure it keeps Cary Hardy’s channel in business).
    If these guys at Deeproot build the RAZA’s and deliver them(including mine)i will not care if some people at deeproot are somewhat full of themselves…i don’t give a crap.
    I admit Kaneda’s RM compilations are cringe and rough to listen to though..lol
    Another thing:
    Yes Jpop drove Zidware into the ground,we pretty much established that by now…blablabla,JPoop….he could not run a business…
    Listen,
    Not much we can do about that.
    He is not evil,just proven incompetent to be the captain.
    On Deeproot:
    Sure,Deeproot…delays…problems…delays,it wasn’t very smart to integrate a pinbar,that shit gives you trouble..poor plan.
    But it differentiates these machines from the others?
    i like new visions on pinball innovation..even if they suck in hindsight,who cares? We tried?
    I like the theme,the colors,the look,the vibe of RAZA so i got one on order.
    It is cool..it will get build.
    And i will be happy to own one.

    #40 72 days ago

    Oh! And if i lose my money,it is not that i am gonna lose my house?
    It’s like my crypto investment, only invest what you are prepared to loose.
    If you have $10k savings and give deeproot $7k that is just not that smart.

    Hi, friend. This is the positive thread. Please, no negative stuff here.

    #46 72 days ago

    Deep Root are having a go and attempting to offer something new and 'innovative'. I applaud their efforts. And their name is better than....er....Haggis.

    There's no hatred or ill intent towards DR...just a bunch of folks poking fun at the big-headed know-it-all....so, you think pinball is easy do you?
