Quoted from vid1900:

On pinside or at an expo, you can find lots of non-Diamondplated games, decades older than the WPC games, that look excellent - because they have been cherrypicked by collectors.
But the normal games I go out and service look like, well, normal routed games.

Well I suppose we'll have to check in on newer Sterns,etc on location in 20 or 30 years. I suspect they won't look *terribly* different from these. Hopefully a little better though.

I can tell you the MM that was at the bowling alley near me for 15 years (alley shut down now) never remotely looked like that MM pic (that we've all seen before). In fact I think that pic was originally touted as "most blown out MM ever".

In fact if that IS a "normal" MM routed game these days... then surely you have pics of the more neglected ones out there??

Now THERE'S a challenge for ya... and I'm sure you'll have some fine examples. Hey I sound like the OP now - demanding pics from others

I'm sure I do.

My drive in my office is full of lots of worn, or interestingly "repaired" machines.

A nicked ball can chew up a game in a few months.

Missing Mylar can chew up a game in ~6 months.

We don't have to wait 20 years to see terrible wear on new games.

Quoted from Drewblood419:

I'm pretty sure on most Stern machines the black text on the inserts are backed with white. I can imagine on MMR to back the small text on the king inserts with white would cause some registration issues with things lining up properly on that tiny font from one layer to the next

Yeah but that's a style choice. Looking at my WMS machines most have straight black ink on the inserts and they are jet black with LED's.
You saw Metallik's pic correct?

That's the way the MMr's castle inserts looked originally also. Looked great.

Vid if you don't mind me asking... what part of the country do you service, work out of, etc?? Sounds like you cover a damn large area.

I was kind of wondering what we might find in his office.

CGC acknowledged an issue with some playfields and were going to try to put down more ink through the screening process. I can't speak for what they are doing now but that is what I was told they were planning on doing to try to resolve the issue.

You never know. That does look like giant pair of buttocks on the front of her.

This is exactly what was reported by Rick on April 6th. Apparently that did not mean that previous playfields with the light insert ink were to be scrapped or swapped out, seeing as how my machine manufactured on 04/28/2016 has light ink.

Which, if true, will only benefit people once they burn through their remaining stock of "faded" playfields that they decided to continue sending out rather than ditch.

I'm currently performing in the Vegas of the Middle East, aka Yemen.

Completely agree but at least shows admission on CGCs part that there was a problem. Not resolving that problem, after recognizing it as such, can be a problem if people attempted to use their warranty towards having a playfield replaced if it came to that.

Mine MMR LE is number 543, manufactured Nov 05 2015.

Both photos were taken with the same settings.
Camera Sony A7, Manual, ISO 400, 1/60 sec exposure, f 5.0

Before diffuser installed.

After diffuser

To be honest, it probably didn't need it on mine, the inserts were pretty good, but wanted to see how it looked with the diffuser.

Interestingly the insert for "The Duke of Burbon" seems a lot more yellow than the rest.
I've double checked this on the pinball itself and they all look the same.

It's more yellow on the one insert because the wrong leds were installed on the circuit board.
Warm white instead of cool white like the rest of the castle inserts.
