Has anyone received a direct response from JJP about this?

My concern is what my playfield will look like in the near future. I have rippling all over not just posts. Will these get worse with major chipping sooner or later? I did buy the CE due to the fact I plan on keeping it in excellent condition for a very long time. I do play my machines and expect normal wear and even dimples but this is something different.

My pirates playfield has many issues which makes me an unsatisfied customer. I did cancel my Wonka CE order solely because of that.

Quoted from Ballypinball:

Mirco 100% made all these Playfields, so keep buying his products, he must have product Liability Insurance, and can send out free Replacements.
I still have not seen names and game numbers to all these games mentioned here
Lots of talk but still very little actual Real Buyers with Real Problems Standing up
I will take some pics of a Pirates with thousands of games with no issue
When you come back with your comments put your pics and game number and name with them

POTC CE #28 ... Pooling in multiple areas and some ready to chip.

Quoted from MurphyPeoples:

Is this yours? Just wondering

Yes. I preordered it the day of reveal and waited a long time.
