Quoted from TheLaw:
No it's something with their laws. It literally has a center post and button activated outlane posts!
There USED to be a law that games of chance could not be played without a license. To try and combat this 'skill posts' were added which allowed you to use additional buttons to raise a post on either outlane, or if you pressed both together a centre post (like Family Guy). I've only ever played a couple of games with the buttons/posts activated and I found it significantly harder to play that way. Most people simply remove the buttons and fit lollipop side rails to cover the resulting holes, or failing that simply deactivate the skill posts from the settings.
The law has changed and this is not now required, it hasn't been for about 20 years.
Quoted from CaptainNeo:
to say you reached valinor several times, means you must be a high end A player or you have your games setup where the outlanes have rubber bands over them.
That may be your assumption - it may be that you would consider me a "High end A player", personally I don't see myself as such. To be regarded as a top, top player I would suggest that you need to be able to have the consistency to be able to do this time and time again with very few crappy games in between; but there are plenty of people I know in the UK who have achieved similar, some ranked below me according to IFPA. I've seen a player get to Do or Die Mulitiball TWICE on consecutive games.
These are not games set to easy, or with "rubber bands over the outlanes", there are players out there who can reach the wizard modes who you may not be aware of because they don't come from the US and/or can't/don't compete in the major comps all over Europe
The only 3 games I have had in my possession which I haven't got to the wizard mode are SDMEWM on TSPP (I was just missing a single super jackpot in Couch MB), Gauntlet on PotC (I got to 4 winds numerous times, but could never actually complete it.) and KI on WPT (That's my next goal and WPT will not be leaving until I have done it!) I've got an AS coming in this weekend, so will see how that goes
