Spinning of a recent post about games similar to IM, curious as to average ball times for each. Figure can be found in bookkeeping.

List your game and time.

My Creech is 42 secs.

Yikes, that is low. I don't own a Creech but the one I play at Pinballz arcade always turns into a 10+min game. Yours must be set up much harder. I only find the shot to the snack bar to be something that causes a drain for me. All other shots are pretty controllable.

For IM - 57 seconds. Lanes are wide open to keep things interesting

My skills are not elite but probably above average. High game on the Creech is 2.1 B, so balls lasted a little longer that game. Recently sold my IM. need to check with the buyer what ABT is unless he wiped out all the bookkeeping totals.

Yea, the Creech I had was brutal. Couldn't tell you the ball times but more often than not they were short.

42 seconds?!? You shoot one 1 kiss shot & 1 middle to bumpers shot and that's longer than 42 seconds. Jesus yours is evil.

Im with you as my average ball time on creech is 65 seconds and im a decent player imo. If set up correctly and freasly shopped its a evil pin. The ball times wld probably be even worse if my pop area weren't set up so sensitive. My bsd is 53 sec so not alot of difference., My congo is 59 sec, .walking dead prem is 58 sec,, tz is 70 seconds.
So bsd isnt as brutal as people think . I have all my games on factory settings with outlanes in the middle and all are 6.5-7.0 degrees. Also my games are all kept waxed every month.

I'm seeing a pattern here....

I don't feed it often. Keeps it mean and disagreeable!

One reason may be that I dont have rubber on the metal posts between the in and out lanes. Drain monster there for sure. I think that is how it should be though.
