So if we are going to compare CURRENT manufacturers...were shirts made when JJP mailed out stickers to cover all of their WOZ playfield wear? Or for any other number of recent game issues with light boards, wiring, etc? My point being that this industry is a shining example of success and failure on may levels, and nothing is bulletproof, especially the first run out of the chute. I am NOT a fanboy, and quite frankly, I have been very critical of Stern's lack of communication in the past. I just find it interesting how this issue has taken on a life of it's own, mostly because of social media. You use terms like "alarming trend", and this "amount". Do you have any idea of how many of these are affected, compared to what has been produced? Stern doesn't publish numbers, and all we have so far aside from the export GBLE's (that we assume are all affected, but again really don't know) are maybe 20 or 30 confirmed cases of different models with actual pictures on Pinside? And several of those folks who posted, wrote that they never noticed the ghosting, or even cared, until they saw something on the forum. We know there are still GBLE's yet to ship, and there are only 500 of those. There were a few Pro's out there prior, and I am sure Stern is VERY AWARE of the problem, so the affected number should be a small percentage of what we hope will eventually run (of GB anyway). The problem may be much worse than we think, or it may be minor...we just don't know at this point. We DEMAND they fix our playfields, yet they have yet to refuse to do so. Maybe they are still finding a solution? There are a lot of conclusions being jumped to these days.......just my .02 cents.
