Quoted from zene10:
I've had it for 22 days. Five days I was out of town. 17 days of play on a new machine and it's hammered by Sparky and starts to chip the clear coat?
I don't accept that explanation. The same problem, same location on a four month old SMVE also? Not a coincidence. Both are defective products.
Furthermore, MET is mature and been in production for years. If it had been happening this whole time and Stern didn't beef up the clear coat or find another fix, then it is just negligent on the part of the manufacturer.
Quoted from clg:
As per the other comments this is NOT normal wear. My metallica has 2k plus games on it and is just fine. Stern needs to make this right.
Never said it was normal? Just saying i get alot of fast throwbacks from sparky magnet straight down the middle that im sure bounce off that edge very hard and why its happening so fast on met. . Unfortunately I also dont think stern will do anything unless it starts chipping in pieces up to the artwork like some of the gb pins have had happen . Same as shooter lane chipping as i dont think they will do anything about that eaither unfortunately. Hopefully all this gets figured out soon.
