Don't settle. I agree 100%. QC needs to be addressed.

What date did you order your game? Still waiting...

Quoted from Leechman:

I ordered mine 9/3/2013

I ordered mine from JJack directly in June of 2013. Hmm!

I received my Hobbit this week after a 3+ year wait. I posted this in another Hobbit thread. Communication is terrible.

Quoted from Koos:

Is it normal behaviour that the magnet up at Smaug (ball lock) is not catching my ball 50% of the time? I'm not talking about the magnet in the orbit, I mean the magnet on the steel rail up next to his head.
Even when the ball travels slowly it just drops richt of the rail instead of holding a second or two on the magnet.
Just wondering if this is normal.

I would say it isn't normal. I'm amazed on fast shots it stops my ball in a split second. Check your opto switch on the ramp. Test it with the glass off and roll it by hand.

I played a Hobbit at a friends today. His game (Smaug LE) has a roaming target to get an extra ball. He showed me by rolling the ball with his hand.
I have a Hobbit (LE) and have not experienced the roaming target feature. When I rolled my ball by hand it didn't activate. Is there a setting I'm missing?
Is it a Smaug LE vs Hobbit LE? We are both running 3.10 software.

Thanks for all the responses regarding the roaming target. I'll check my settings ... and play better.
