Quoted from rotordave:
I did get that impression....
This is TWD in a nutshell. I was just (like, 5 mins ago) having a killer ball on my TWD pro, I hit a legitimate shot, and the game rewards me by firing the ball so fast down the left drain, the Playfield has scorch marks.
This is a legitimate complaint, and one echoed by some of the top "guys" in pinball. Location pinball is going to die if people don't keep putting quarters into games. If a kid sticks $1 into GB or TWD and the whole $1 is gone in a minute or so, he's gonna put his $1 somewhere else where he can play for longer for his $1.
If the machine isn't earning, the operator isn't going to bother with pins any more. No pins on location means no new kids get addicted to them, they don't want to buy a pin when they get older, and so on down the line, and pinball goes down the gurgler.
it's not just the walking dead that does it. My indy 500 does the same thing. Ihave one game for 700 million and the next 6 i'm lucky to get 30 million. Make the turbo shot....rejected...rolls out, into a hair trigger sling. Puff puff pass drain. SOB!!!
