I think this is gonna be an interesting group. AFM & TOM are classics; but TRON has gathered quite a following and may just be able to squeeze into the next round.

#4 6 years ago

I think HSII is the Australia of the World Cup
No offense aussies, they almost pulled out a draw yesterday vs CHILE!

#6 6 years ago
Quoted from TigerLaw:

Tron! It is better than lamp after all.

Good game but no AFM. Thus far all but group A have been easy.

#7 6 years ago

TRON may give AFM a run for its money in the #1 seed slot

#8 6 years ago

Wow, I like Tron but I looove AFM. Probably my favorite pin ever. There's just something about it.

#9 6 years ago

TRON and AFM dukeing it out for the top spot of the group!

#10 6 years ago

AFM running away with it?

#11 6 years ago

AFM taking over the group as expected. But TRON and TOM are fighting for it.

#12 6 years ago

Never mind that. Where the hell are Groups G and H???

Theyre up!

Sorry for the delay, i got very busy with work trying to get out early to watch USA v Ghana. What tense nail biting that game turned out to be

Against AFM?

Not a chance, and I think it goes without saying how much I love Tron.

Well TRON was strong out of the gate. I would like to see it hold on enough to get to the second round though.

Ah, but of course. I was thinking that if Tron doesn't win outright, it's knocked out. I forgot these are World Cup rules!

I agree with you, World Cup rules!!!!

I agree with you...now that the NBA and NHL finals are over.

I'm surprised Tron is getting ground and pounded here by AFM. If someone has a Tron in their collection, it is usually their favorite game... I wonder how it will fair in round 2.

I own both, and like I said earlier, as much as I love Tron, I don't think anyone should be surprised that AFM is giving it a pounding. AFM is a true all time classic and has it all. Well...at least my McCune restored one does.

#21 6 years ago

Ah, got it. You literally have a top 1% example of the game (my guess is there have been less than 100 RFM's restored to the level of yours, I remember seeing the pics). Given the level of your game you are going to do the right thing and abstain in this poll right?

His AFM and MB (both mccunes) are unbelievable!

#23 6 years ago

I haven't played AFM but just watched some gameplay videos? Why is it so great...it doesn't look that involved from the videos I watched but obviously it must be better than it looks from the videos? Tell me what is so great about it? Just curious. Thanks.

The game rules and shots are still the same!

The audio is fantastic. Its a funny game with great animations, art, and nice shots.

"Hey Pilgrim, is this where Tron Wayne comes to vote for the best pin in the Universe ?!?!"

#28 6 years ago

I love Tron. I own Tron and AFM. I just had to vote for AFM. Tron is awesome. AFM is awesomer!

#29 6 years ago

Them's fightin' words pilgrim

#30 6 years ago

Tron is at least gaining some ground. 18% total vote difference now.

#31 6 years ago

Tron Jeremy's friend has a special offer for the next 100 people who vote for Tron.
Offer not valid in Vermont. TTL not included. Consult your physician before use.

AFM all day every day.

Quoted from Nevus:

Ha! I was thinking of you when I made that post as the only exception to that rule I personally knew. You are my only pin friend that owned a Tron LE and said, "eh, no big deal" and traded it out so quick.

Hope to catch up with ya again soon! That IMVE took the spot I was saving for when you got tired of your Banzai Run.

#34 6 years ago

this is awesome, thanks for coming up with it!!

#35 6 years ago

AFM back up to a 20 point lead over Tron.

#36 6 years ago

AFM > Tron > TOM > HS2 IMHO

To me though TOM and HS2 is more of a taste difference.

#37 6 years ago

I just left the Tron Real Owners Network (t.r.o.n.) monthly meeting and I can report that most all the tron people are on summer vacation right now.

just give it time folks.

#38 6 years ago

Man atleast give AFM a challenge....lol

It has more votes then all other 3 combined

I have to be in the minority here, but I hate attack from mars. SO boring. Shoot the center shot 10,000x. My wife, who is terrible at pinball, destroyed Mars on her first time, first game, when playing it at Vegas PHOF.

Nice. Now tell her to score a SJ, 5 way combo, complete martians.....

I think this kind of sums up the choices in this grouping.

labnip,

I love Tron, but I'm not really interested in this group voting competition. Spamming all the Tron threads you could find in an attempt to collect voters is pretty annoying. As such, I'm placing a vote for AFM.

Teekee mentioned you should go to facebook for posting pictures of yourself.

then you did exactly what I hoped you would.
happy days

Think I have 1 of those "I Voted" stickers around here for you. Might have a merit badge somewhere too... let's see.

oh... and what's that...? Folks are re-engaging on some of these Tron threads now. How about that.

#47 6 years ago

Here's a really cool interactive topper I picked up. Wonder what pin I should put this on... hmmmmm.....

I also sent an abuse report. Maybe you can get enough "votes" to warrant a vacation from Pinside. Seriously, keep it in this thread.

could you explain to me what your comment about Taco Bell has to do with LED & OCD. Here is the OP's Thread Post:
you seem to be very off topic, but I guess you only apply that rule to me?
Looks like you're interested in teaching people some respect?

In fact you even state you are going "off topic" in another OP's thread. This is just one example...

Why are you going off topic talking about your Avatar looking like this --> [? !] in a thread about Color DMD ? I'm very confused about this "off topic" behavior. According to what you're saying to me, shouldn't that post belong in a thread about Avatars, or about your Avatar and not in a thread about Color DMD ?

Screen Shot 2014-06-20 at 2.57.55 PM.png

Should I now report you for same multiple abuses?
Seriously, shouldn't you keep on topic in threads?
Surely, we are both to be held accountable to the same standard?
(This is about following rules & being fair right? Or is this about something else?)

Why is this such an issue for you? Why can't you use a PM to me? Did I somehow drastically attempt to single you out and offend you?

I am just trying to have some fun with this topic, not trying to offend or abuse anything or anyone. I am so sorry this was so upsetting to you Herg.

Please accept my fullest and most sincere apology for making posts to this TRON thread in other TRON threads not realizing I was breaking a Pinside rule/policy AND in parallel offending you so greatly. This certainly was not and is not my intention at any point in the past, now or future.
