I'm still a fairly new pinball player (and having the time of my life!). I'm about a year into the hobby and I got my first machine (Maiden) this March, followed Bond in June and GZ in Sept. My question is, I often hear about how JP has those tight shots, how it can be a drain monster and if you can't make those shots, you're going to get frustrated fast. Basically, if you're not a good player, this game may not be for you.
As a pinball noob, I play 3 ball games, but with extra balls and ball saves maxed out. I know I won't be winning any tourneys any day soon, but I'm averaging 200M on Maiden, and about 500M on Bond and GZ. In considering my next pin, will JP be too much of a hill to climb for me? Yes, I've played it many times, but I'm asking about the long term happiness factor if it's sitting in my gameroom. Bond is known to have some tough, unconventional shots and I love them. I can make the two ramp shots and the bond girl loop on a fairly regular basis. That is, if I'm on.
