YES

I've had Tron 4.5 years, but have been a casual player overall so I have not got all the way to Portal been to SOS a few times.

I like how it's rules are hard enough but not impossibly hard to make it to mini wizard or wizard mode and have a balance of easy modes and more difficult modes.

It's such a good game for casual play but also rewards more goal oriented play.

I'm starting to play it more often and getting to know the rules and shots better and it's just getting better and better.

#6803 2 years ago

I thought Tron was overrated and nothing too special after a few casual plays, until I just stayed on it and kept feeding it quarters for about an hour at an arcade. Then I thought it was the best pin I had ever played, and bought one...

#6804 2 years ago
Quoted from Billy16:

and bought one...

Wise move. Although I'm playing TWD more right now, i still prefer Tron.

Lights + actions + geek = happy.

Welcome to the grid!!!...TRON is what it is...one of the best, brutal machines available, period.

That is awesome. Does it fit over the panel so it's ok for the LE?

#6810 2 years ago

Made it to portal on a whim today after draining ball 1 immediately at 1,000,000 points. The only reason I kept playing is Light Cycle and CLU were ready.

Wound up completing EVERYTHING and skipped SOS and went right to Portal (awarded 50,000,000 bonus).

Wound up with my GC score but OF COURSE drained after 6,700,000

Great, I find it hard to continue on with a game if I suck up ball one. Goes to show you never can tell.

Yeah one of the things I like about Tron is you can do that because ball times are short.

On SM and LOTR, if I didn't stack properly on ball one and complete a mode, I'd press START more often than not. But those games take SOOO long to reach the wizard mode you almost have to so you don't waste your time.

Quoted from rai:

That's why I turn off the restart feature on all my games. It forces me to play all three balls, and I'm often delightfully surprised by the result.

Nice! Starting SoS with everything lit solid is awesome. The only thing better is doing it with double scoring running for a cool 100M. I've only ever accomplished this once.

Sweet!!! That is the absolute magic of TRON....brutal, short ball times, but once in a while, she lets you in.....

Anyone know if Stern produced a flyer for the LE? Never seen one.

#6823 2 years ago

I'm not crazy about Jared Leto (I mean Suicide Squad was meh) but I really like to see another Tron.

#6824 2 years ago

WTF why does my autocorrect always change Tron to Iron? crap.

i think there's just 1 flyer design

Since putting clear disc rubber and silicone on this game, my Tron is a screaming deamon that has been deep fried, sprinkled in glitter, that breathes fire on you. I fing love it... after all this time with the game, it is the most rewarding game Stern has made, easy to understand, difficult to master. Sea of Simulation now gets my heart racing again... Thanks again Borg. I judge all new releases against this... most are soft in comparison.

#6830 2 years ago

here is the last chance to get one of the stainless steel speaker panels
$ 85,- + 20$

I wish Pinside had a double upvote.

I sold my LOTR to get one. Now I'm like, "LOTR? I never owned an LOTR." How fast I forgot that machine once I played Tron...

Same! My biggest mistake was putting a LOTR next to Tron. Gandalf and Co are gone.... Didnt hold up for me.

#6834 2 years ago

Anyone know what difference this makes??

I had it set to default/medium.

I had a 45 minute game on POTC tonight as well. That might be next. Pinball should be a quick in and out - you shouldn't have to clear your schedule to play a game.

I've probably had 3 games over 30 minutes in my life. If a game starts playing too long, I usually tweak the setup a bit. Outlanes first, then pitch (up or down), sleeves on the posts to make shots tighter, and finally rubber to be bouncier and a bit less predictable if you flail.

Well...I was playing yzfguy's machine and he sets it up easy so that he can get high scores that look good enough to post on Pinside. Ten minute ball saves, extra balls for hitting the slings, and four winds multiball just because. I set my machines up for people who know how to play pinball.

One lucky game and he becomes a smack-talker.
