Quoted from edwinpblue:
it seems that everyone who paid their money feel that they are one up on everyone else. that is their opinion. I don't feel they are in my opinion. they are HOPING that they game will be good. they are HOPING that their game will hold more value than the regular version of WOZ. maybe their hope will pan out. regardless of what DOES pan out I'm not wrong for a) waiting to see if the game is good b) hoping the price drops after a a large portion of the wozle games have hit the market and c) thinking it is completely crazy to pay money for jj version 2 when version 1 hasn't even been delivered.
I (and many others) am not "hoping my game holds value." As others mentioned, our pre-orders were a chance to get in on a new venture and support a new pin company. And the ECLE is still a killer value. $6500, where the regular WOZ will be selling for $7k or more. Besides the gorgeous emerald green rails/legs (amazing quality), the shaker motor and Invisiglass are great additions. So, ignoring stuff like the handsome wooden apron cover and Emerald City topper, the value added to the ECLE is several hundred dollars more than the regular version, yet many of us bought it for far less. No worries here!
As for the game itself, the layout is solid and the build quality is incredible. The detail, sturdiness and innovation just set new standards for pinball excellence. Once you see this game in person (and it weighs in at 390 pounds!), you'll realize just how shoddy/flimsy those other new pins are that also sell in the same price range. The game is completely adjustable: set it steep or shallow, adjust flipper strength appropriately. Nice flow, and the 'stop' in 'stop-and-go' is pretty brief when it occurs, so overall then game keeps moving. The one remaining question, whether the rules will be great, is a no-brainer. I have zero doubt that Keefer will deliver his best effort to date, outdoing TSPP, WPT, and LOTR. We'll all see for sure pretty soon.
Really, wtf is "de sha vue"????? *sigh*
