I just got mine yesterday! This one of the fastest pins I've ever played, & I've owned & played a bunch of fast pins! lol
Question. With the new code why can't I select what house I want to play as in the beginning? It goes to Stark as the default & I can not change it. Is there a setting in the menu?

Thanks,
Zamp

Quoted from capguntrooper:

The change is in the menu, just switch off casual play

Thank you! That did the trick! It plays like a different pin now, many different strategies.
This is a sleeper pin for sure! I love how fast this pin plays! I just put up my best score yet.

Quoted from Ballsofsteel:

i'm still wondering why this is sterns biggest current 'sleeper' pin amongst players. ghostbuster and kiss have nothing on this furious, fast, and strategic machine imo. happy flippin' friday!

When GB was revealed it stole the spotlight from everything. It was a dream theme for many people, & it truly looks & sounds great!
GOT when it was released was also the dream theme for many, but the art work killed it's momentum right out of the gate. I was very critical of the art & didn't hide it in my comments on this forum. I basically wrote off GOT in my mind, & I believe many have.

When I played GOT(pro) for the 1st time I was blown away! So fast, so smooth, such great flow, & a different set of rules that requires some thought & strategy. Excellent ruleset!

I still feel the art is week, but it is easier on the eyes in person. The art is really the only negative on this pin. The gameplay, the rules, the sounds, & the call outs are all so good that you forget about the art. Heck the ball is moving so fast the only focus is trying to track it & lineup your next shot! In contrast to GB, which plays in my opinion below average(pro) & has a somewhat boring & repetitive ruleset.

GB is a good pin, but GOT is a Great pin!

Quoted from Eskaybee:

I dont care how anyone wants to sugar coat it; plain and simple, GOT not getting a final update sucks! No ifs, ands, buts about it. Yea, Dwight had family emergencies that initially pulled him off from completing GOT, I get that and respect family + health issues. But, when he returns to work and his employer doesnt let him finish where he left off and instead throws 2 more games on his plate (GB + SW), that in lies the problem.
Dwight has a whole slew of problems, polish, balance, bugs, etc... to address with GOT and he knows this.
The upper playfield rules and integration suck. Lack of balance with certain houses suck. having a call out for some houses and blank 'empty space' for others suck. The amount of bugs the game has SUCK. The games isnt complete. We know this, Dwight knows this. Sterns code support for non-lyman released games has been shit. Always has, always will. Even Lyman got reamed in the ass when developing TWD code and was yanked from it from his employer. And From what i understand, he eventually just locked himself in his basement and didnt go into the stern factory for months so that he could finish TWD. And in turn, the game is now epic because of it. Probably sold a few hundred more titles or more cause of it.
Stern is the problem here, not the programmers. And with that, im looking elsewhere for my next title(s). Screw SW, Screw AS, Screw GoTG...Until Stern gets their head out of there arrogant 'operator's market' ass, I'm eyeing JJP for my next title or a proven classic remake (AFMr, ACDC, etc...). Dialed in is 10X the game SW, GOT, any stern for that matter in both build quality and code quality. Sad but true. /rant over.

AMEN Brother!!!! I'm 100% with you.
I was a hardcore Stern supporter over the years(view my pin history), but I just can't support(NIB) a company that is trying to take advantage of it's consumers! I'm done making excuses for them. The issues are pilling up for them. They simply just don't care.
I bought a Dialed In last week. When I unboxed it I started laughing out loud. I hadn't seen one in person!(I know, never buy till you try). The Quality, the Toys, the Art, the playfield, the Weight difference, Everything is so far superior to the last several Stern titles, it is literally laughable. Not to mention an absolute blast to play!

Star Wars should be in my game room right now, not a Dialed In. Star Wars might be a "fun" pin to play. But, with all of the quality control issues, the Photoshop playfield, the complete lack of toys, & beta code all while raising prices. My $$ goes elsewhere.

Quoted from TheLaw:

I agree with you overall but SW is probably $2800 cheaper. Sure, pay more for "quality" I get it, but it's chunk of change man.

It is. It's a lot of $ for sure. Enough to make you go, "Did I just spend nearly $10k on a damn pinball machine!?" lol

A few years ago I could have bought 2 new Stern pro's for that! lol
Times have changed.

Quoted from T-800:

I thought this was a Game of Thrones thread... I guess the bashing just can't keep to relevant threads.

GOT is made by Stern, it's relevant. I addressed the "code" issue, among other things. Plus, I'm a former owner/contributor to this thread.
