Quoted from beelzeboob:
The problem is that the ball goes up the ramp so fast that you can't really see what it hits (unless I were to film it and slow it down). I think it flies off the top, hits the clear protector on the top or at the sharp left turn, and comes back down. I raised my pitch to 7 degrees from 6.5, and the ball doesn't fly off the ramp any more, but it does brick and come back down.
I'm thinking of going to 7.5 to help slow it down. The game is just so damn fast...
This seems like a significant issue and needs to be addressed. When you hit the right ramp with speed from the lower left flipper, the steep pitch of the ramp causes the ball many times to either smack the glass or over shoot and land near the throne etc. A well hit shot doesn't make it up the ramp to the upper playfield but goes crazy. The plastic cover on the ramp is on the top third, seems like it has to come down to cover the upper two thirds, plus I can't tell if the ball squeezes out the back above the ramp and under the cover continuing to the throne sometimes.
