Quoted from zaphX:
And by the way gnarlee I think it's impressive as hell you've been able to reach the Break the Curse mode.
Putting myself in your position, having a once-in-a-lifetime game and meeting all the required goals only to have the reward missing would be a bit of a disappointment for sure.
I wish I were a good enough player to have this problem.
I have never made it and have never claimed to have. I have had exactly 2 games in well over 1000 where I got close. 22 chapters done once and 23 chapters fully completed (all characters collected) once. 3 wizard modes played each time with 4th qualified on the 23 chapter game. Now that im not playing 10-20 games a day my standard game might be in the 700-900k range (not enough for extra ball) with the occasional wizard mode. plenty of games where i wont break 100k. I have always been very good at skill games with enough time to properly figure out the quirks.
