    Quoted from yancy:

    Gonna slide save the shit out of Ghostbusters premium at league tonight. Hope it can handle more than six inches.

    See if you can get it into the back of your truck before it tilts.

    Huge Slide saves in our league tournaments, though not illegal, are highly frowned upon, since we are playing on the host collector’s machines. However, when the host slide saves his own machine during the tournament, do you think I am gentle and curt with my slides from that point on? No. If the host abuses his machines, then I respond in kind with my save efforts. Bang backs and death saves are not allowed, but slide saves, depending on how violent they are NOT, are tolerated.

    If I am paying to play, then the only referee is either the bartender or the arcade worker flunky watching me or Bob. And if Bob says its ok, then its OK. I am competing with the owner/op to play as much pinball without having to pay for it. If my slide save loosened up the leg bolts a little bit, and scratched the floor, well the owner got a buck out of me for 3 balls which cost him nothing, maybe he can use a little bit of that dollar and pay some flunky $10 bucks an hour to rerubber, clean, wax, and retighten the leg bolts, oh and throw on a new set of leg levelers on the feet once in a while, they cost all of a couple of bucks. A coat of wax on that floor might help with the scuff marks.

    Threads about how many inches of movement constitutes a “slide” and how to use a hot iron to flatten out clear coat issues.

    WTH is going on around here?

    Quoted from bssbllr:

    I’m not sure but MORE then 6” seems like a lot.

    Well they say 6 inches is the average slide for white males.

    I sincerely apologize for some of my comments/postings that may have offended some (especially OP) as some of them may not be in the spirit of debate.

    Damn, you HAVE been drinking.

    Anyone get a photo of Level 257 league last night? Deadpool got shoved so far to the left that we had to angle TWO games on that side to make room. (cough abagwell cough)

    You bet your butt I did....

    Four machines were destroyed and two players permabanned due to slide saves that night. Jk, NO MACHINES WERE HARMED in the execution of these skill moves...

    For real though, when the "dude who saved pinball" is the one to nonchalantly move the Hobbit after a nice abagwell slide save and plunge away without complaint, I think we've got our answer re: slide saves

    100 to 200 this night, set up hard with no ball save or eb for competition. Seen 300 to 500 other nights. Plays well otherwise GC at around 2 billion

    #763 14 days ago

    Cool, my GC is just shy of 2 billion.

    Deadpool one of my faves, but haven't played it in a tougher tourney setting as yet.

    So it looks like the debate is finally over. So the results are in and the verdict is........

    Russian bots have learned a new way to outrage people. Talk about sliding things around.

    Quoted from razorsedge:

    It can not be disputed that "slide saves" can often cause excessive (additional) wear and tear or damage to pinball machines.

    The only thing at real risk is your floor.

    In a great game you sure as heck can bet I may slide save. It’s a pro move IMO.
