I'm considering grabbing one for a family xmas present, now that the playfield issue appears to be resolved, but the game still has me nervous. Are the fixes done going forward, or will stern keep tweaking and maybe change things down the road to prevent airballs, drops, ball hops etc...? I've heard they could build this game for years, so maybe waiting a little longer might get a more "dialed in" (excuse the phrase) pin without having to tweak & mod just to make playable - thoughts?

Quoted from Rarehero:

No reason a game shouldn't work well and play well. Stern used to real world test their games. They'd put them out on location before release and make changes and adjustments based on ball traps, defects, damage, player feedback, etc. they'd make these changes before mass production. Now, they go into production before testing, and owners become the Guinea pigs. That's why Slimer's mech was redesigned after release. That's why the bracket by the captive ball was changed. That's why there's now a new protector for the Ecto Goggles. Not to mention the playfield clearcoat issues! Product testing is essential to any product, especially a complex mechanical one.

I'm now beginning to agree with this^^^. You should not have to spend more than a hour or so getting a nib pin playable & enjoyable. Having to do all the band-aids to Ghostbusters is a joke..... I'm gonna wait on GB & see if Stern gets their act together before supporting their high volume low quality corporate culture. This game was obviously just whipped together... great theme & nice eye candy, but poorly executed.

Today is delivery day for mine - I've been in contact with JJ and sounds like they will be getting more in soon. I've got cliffys ordered, but still need to order plastics for the ball hops. This is my first nib Stern so very excited! Are the lane guides higher on the newer runs or do the balls still jump them pretty easily? Pics to follow
