Quoted from UrethraFranklin:
So I wanted to post a horror story about PZ. Well not a horror story, but something stupid for those that love the game as much as I do. This was my first pin ever and I love it. I love the toys, but also that they don't over power the playfield. The ramps are wacky and I love it. I've had the machine for about 6 months and the most I've scored is 46 million.
So I am playing the best game I've ever played on this machine, first ball and I'm at 20 million. Every shot I am going for makes it. Eat Drink and Play, Party Saver, then I activate multiball. I shoot 2 consecutive shots to the "Robotic Comic" part and both balls simultaneously come back, each one going up the rocket for 7 million, and the second one goes into the back before the first one has a chance to shoot out and they both get stuck and one falls inside the machine and I couldn't finish my game. I think I had 30 million on the first ball and I couldn't finish my game.
I still can't believe how some people score so many points on this game without adjusting factory settings dramatically.
I've never had one of the balls fall into the machine from the rocket ramp. That is a horror story!
As far as getting a higher score, the big bang max in 99 million & locking the first ball in order to get the big bang is worth 10 million so that is a great start.
But I do something else (rather than the big bang) to get high scoring games. I shoot for the way out of control (WOOC) payoff lane. Getting the four WOOC squares lit first gives you a payoff of 5 million the first time. The next time it's boppers 1 million. This is where you can really rack up points, especially during multi ball or even after one of the ball drains and the playfield scores are doubled (2 million per bop). When you get this far, try to get the WOOC payoff a third time for 10X playfield. If you do this AT THE SAME TIME as boppers 1 million then boppers are now worth 10 million per bop! Also, during playfield 10X shoot the WOOC payoff lane and instead of 1 million its 10 million. Each time you hit this it goes up by 1 million. Also, once you get playfield 10x, the next WOOC payoff is extra special special, which is worth 50 million! You can only get it once per game and you have to have this set in the settings to give you points, otherwise it will give you free games (which you don't need).
I have a youtube video where I get 588 million. I use the technique I just described (boppers 1 million & 10x playfield at the same time) to go from 59 million to 480 million in less than one minute! It takes many MANY tries to get to into this position but it is possible. I'm working on a video where I get 1 billion but I've never been able to do it with the camera on.
