    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.

    I'm gonna aim for the dumpster.

    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?

    #755 10 months ago
    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

    For Some. Each to their own.

    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 10 months 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.

    #767 10 months ago

    Just because.....this guy had a small “slide”

    #769 10 months ago

    What if a pinball machine was on a hockey rink?
    Slides would be pretty cool!

    I voted no, but I think I have misunderstood the wording... I nudge like hell when I play, but never SLIDE the actual machine. If I even nudge too hard, I tilt it so how the hell does anyone get away with full on sliding. In that case, my vote would be yes, it is cheating.

    #771 8 months ago

    I don’t know how they do it. It’s cheating!! Haha. Really only works on games with no tilt or modern games with debounce code.

    Everyone has the option to change their vote if they choose.

    Hindsight there would have been better wording. 20-20. Cant really change the actual question once a heap of people have voted though.

    Key words "the game" were intended to add the Context at the end. Not clear enough though. Most a bit too focused on the "C" word (I mean cheating, not Context lol).

    It should have read something like:

    Is sliding a pinball machine across the floor (+inch) in the spirit of the game?
    -Yes
    -No
    -Other

    Could even go more like: Does being violent with machines discourage women, or make them feel uncomfortable at "tournaments" ??

    Anyway...

    Didn't this thread die?

    We had to drag F-14 out of the way last night after a few slide saves on GB during leagues. I may or may not have contributed to it being partially sideways.

    Must have got its flu shot.

    #775 8 months ago

    Slid the new Jurassic park 6 inches in fromnt of the operator yesterday.
    Lucky he's a mate.

    #776 8 months ago

    Each to their own. There is clearly more than one way to use, play or abuse a pinball machine.

    *edit

    #777 8 months ago

    You're still wrong bro.

    Not everyone is a barbarian though

    I'd forgotten all about this thread. Good to see someone gave it a revival.

    It's wierd that while condoning sliding pinballs across the floor, some machoistic dickheads still wonder why women would want their own division. Lol

    Gives the barbarians somewhere to argue how they see their behaviour as "justified"

    Quoted from Bruce_Pickle:

    You're still wrong bro.

    I am no more "wrong" than you are my friend.

    Watch the downvotes come rolling in from those wanting to protect their "right" to be violent.

    It would be interesting to know what percentage of "no" voters in this thread are women.

    #781 8 months ago

    Doesn't seem like a dead horse at all... already up another point to 32% ....
