I just joined the club and the only thing I’m wondering is why no dedicated shot from the upper flipper?

#7313 5 months ago
Quoted from Goronic:

You can use a bottom flipper also, I normally have one cradled on a bottom flipper ready to fire after loading the windlance. I like having the third flipper, but it isn't a must have flipper.

Yes, correct you can do it from the lower flippers. It’s a great game I just wish it had a dedicated shot. They could have easily added a pop up post wear you could hit the right spinner, the post pops up then on the way down you have to hit the targets-just like on RBION

Quoted from CLEllison:

The flipper serves many purposes.
Killing Smaug
Hitting dwarf targets
Directing ball flow out of the right orbit toward left lanes to potentially get warg or ELF target
Balin shot .. also useful for extra ball
And if you're good enough you can make the left ramp shot.
Collecting Thorin
Adding more thorin awards towards extra ball
Collecting Erobor spinner award
Hitting orc for beast frenzy
Hitting orc for interrogation mode
So what's this about it not having a dedicated purpose? Lol

Maybe I haven't gotten that much into the game but couldn't all those shots be made from the bottom flippers? I'm talking about a shot that couldn't be made from a bottom flipper. Don't get me wrong, I love the game. I just wish it would have had one dedicated shot for that flipper (icing on the cake).

When you shoot the windlance at full power, where should the ball end up? Mine makes it close to the upper flipper at full power so I'm guessing I need to increase the coil number

#7319 5 months ago
Quoted from Rdoyle1978:

It should go a little past the upper flipper so you have a split second to prepare while it rolls down and you can make a precise shot

Thank you, adjusted the coil to 24 and it seems to do the trick now

Quoted from Wildbill327:

Maybe they can tweak the code a bit to kill lower flippers when you load the windlance during Smaug multiball, and you can only kill Smaug from upper flipper. To make it fair if you miss the first shot you can get a second try within a given amount of time(hurry up).

Great idea
