If you are expecting this, you should call and tell them at the factory that is your wish before it's put in a box and ready for your pickup.

Quoted from Genjuro:

Fixing issues at the factory would be cheaper than dealing with shipping parts. Not sure what is so interesting about this to be honest.
..and they dont have to box it for me.

There's always the secondary market.

Quoted from indybru:

I'm hugely disappointed production of this game is being discontinued. I can't understand with all the time, effort, game play instruction production is ending after one year?
I personally own 3 JJP games (LE's & RR) and they take the bulk of my playing time because they are so awesome. I recently sold my lotr because when I bought DI end of last year I wasn't playing DI enough. It would have been nice to have Pirates as an option to buy later this year after the dust settles with what I own. Oh well.

I’d buy an SE if I was getting one. Same game .

Quoted from 3pinballs:

Is the SE a LOSS ???????
Buying a POTC SE, unfortunately LE's sold out and kind of maxed out on money - but would have found a way to get the extra $ for it.
For those that have a SE do you feel like you're losing out to a LE?
What I'm losing
1- Powder Coat - don't care
2- Invisiglass - I'm adding
3- RGB GI Lighting - Kind of bummed - but WolfManCat mentioned that the White GI actually makes the playfield brighter and easier to see ball.
4- External Headphone jack - never used in previous games so not a loss.
5 - Molded Playfield Toys - not a big deal
6- 2 Pop Bumper Rotation Toys - Really cool and believe this is a Loss.
7- Topper - Don't care and can always add if I want
8- Target Decals - Only $30 to add and will as they add to the game aesthetically.
9 - 72 Light Starfield on back panel - Really cool, but don't know if I'll notice it gone.
10 - Shake Motor - I like them but not a necessity. I believe shakers make things loose under playfield anyways, but if integrated well into gameplay then a buy for me.
I believe You do get $1k more in add-ons, however missed the boat on LE.
Feel Like buyers remorse, funny even mentioning that on a SE, but want feedback from you guys.

Why would you want external volume control for home use? You can easily set the volume inside the coin door and forget it. Do people change their volume regularly? I set it and forget it.

Quoted from harryhoudini:

Can't you add a volume control (even if just buying the parts from JJP)? I know I just bought one for my WOZ, which surely has different requirements if not just wire length, but if it can be added by JJP and they sell the parts I would think it could be an easy addon.

Only you can decide if the game is for you. The Standard is every bit as fun as the LE in my opinion.

Quoted from Budman:

I haven’t been able to play/ evaluate this game yet. I know LE’s are gone or scarce. Is the Standard really that much lesser of a model than the LE? From the matrix, it seems not. Thanks

So buy a HUO Pirates LE when it comes up for sale. No biggie, you seem patient enough. Someone is always selling a game no matter how awesome it is. People like to change games in their collection from time to time.

Quoted from pcprogrammer:

It is understandable if you look at it through the lens of people that don't live, eat and breathe this hobby. I am super casual and very rarely buy pins. I don't keep up on every detail of things. Pirates wasn't even on my radar until after I played it at MGC and I didn't pay attention to all these details I'm now learning about. I just figured a very new pin would be easily available until I learned about all the details, hence why I'm feeling very disappointed and let down by JJP.

That's surprising. The game should ensure all balls are in the trough before starting a new game. I would bet this will change to be more 'standard'.

Quoted from GnarLee:

I kinda like how it currently drains the balls. It gives you the oppertunity to start a game before they drop allowing the game to act more like when your in a multiplayer game (sometimes chest will drop a ball after lock sometimes youll be fed a ball)

#11598 4 months ago

I hope not, Pirates is their best game (IMO) so it should get a final polish.

Quoted from Trooper11040:

Sometimes I feel as if JJP washed his hands with pirates and just let it go
