Quoted from Eskaybee:
Hah! If it makes you feel any better, my first 10 games prior to that one were all under 50mil
I think my GC score is like 120 million or something. Gotta get better at rocking those CUI modes.
I find my best games are the ones where I don't let myself get distracted and just play a more loose and open style. I'll get trapped into over focusing on filling the inserts for Seek and Destroy or something when I would probably get most of them naturally during multiball, and then I'll get a bad bounce off a standup and drain. It's one of the reasons the rules are so great though, you can approach the game in so many ways, which I know is basically Lyman's overall philosophy.
It's similar to the Shadow in that sense, I'll get sidetracked by playing Vengeance when I was planning on going for Final Battle just because it's so much fun.
I'm trying to play a simpler style in general. I got to a point in my game where I was kind of my own worst enemy. Like trying to drop catch constantly, and even if I make 90% of them that 10% of the time when I dump the ball down the drain could have been avoided if I just didn't press so hard. Need to get better about knowing when I need the flipper skills, and when I can just trap or shoot normally.
Always something with pinball, why I love it.
