Quoted from kklank:

Why would you go through someone’s posts from 2 years ago and repost. That is so UNCOOL.
What in the heck is wrong with you?

I didn’t- someone posted in ASOA thread today douchebag. Not cool to assume.

So you took a post from another person from another thread and posted in this thread?

Quoted from RobT:

Truer words have never been spoken on this forum.
Frankly, if Iceman stops reading/posting on Pinside, he could very well wind up enjoying the pinball hobby more, not less. And that goes for many of us in my experience.

It worked for me. *shrug* I'm only here until my Ultraman drops.

Yep! Gotta warn the next generation, not to be dum dums.

So did you really get a refund, or are you lying?

Seriously…..can you just stop being so antagonistic.

Why? Did you get ripped off? No, as you are so happy to tell the world you gambled and got a push from the house. 300 + retirees didn't, thanks to you.

So no. Drain this thread, but it will live on, as a warning too don't be dum or greedy and speculative.

Riddle me this. Did you read all 20,000+ posts before Yelo bought your machine for you? Did you have any idea what a shit show it was, yet still allowed Yelo to once again use clout(and your cash) to try and jump ahead in line by fully paying? What's it like to lose 10gs when you have years of reality staring you in the face. Are you and Yelo still friends?

Please don't take after Yelo. He lies. You read at least 1 word.

Anyhow, what's it like losing 10gs on this? Gotta hurt?

You are a complete buffoon. Whats wrong didn't get your "I told you so"?? KK nor I lost a single dollar but for some reason no matter how many times you read it you have to ask again. Grow up, shows over get on with your life. You look so completely foolish.

What did you get? I’m shocked Mando is gone. TMNT is way underrated for a pro.

#3178 38 days ago

Is everyone still arguing in a RAZA pre-order thread?

Quoted from hank527:What did you get? I’m shocked Mando is gone. TMNT is way underrated for a pro.

Had a chance to play Mando, AIQ, ST, LZ and TMNT last weekend and I think I liked TMNT the best of the 5.

Edit: not sure why that first line was in there.

Quoted from hank527:

Yeah unfortunately Mando just didn't click with the family so it had to go. I liked it but wouldn't say it was one of Sterns finest. Traded it for a like new Star Trek LE and cash. While not a ST fan that game is simply incredible and a smooth shooter. Also have a new Alien arriving tomorrow missed shipping today. Hobby is always fun just tough to find space for them all.

Quoted from Zablon:

People these days just don't have much integrity.

I’m debating AIQ as I’ve only played it once. TMNT is cool with some great shots. My worry is that I will get bored of it. Though after a month I’m liking it more and more.

#3182 38 days ago
Quoted from hank527:

I’m want to play AIQ cuz I love JP so much. The rules look soooo confusing, but I need to feel it to know whether that’s true during gameplay.

Aliens LVs are coming soon.

Or try Haggis pin.

I’m confused- how did these guys affect 300 retires?

Quoted from Rarehero:

The gem functionality on AIQ feels very similar to how B66 minor villains work during play. The level of the Avenger dictates the the level of improvement the gem provides, with different functionality for the drop targets and Captain Marvel spinner/ramp. For the most part it's just remembering which gems do what.

I had my AIQ Premium for about six months before I sold it. Outside of score min/maxing, the game boils down to collecting gems and Avengers, wash, rinse, repeat. Looking past the very hungry outlanes the table shoots great, I was just ultimately disappointed with how the rules turned out. To be fair, I'm progression focused and not score focused, so AIQ just doesn't resonate with me.

If thats the case then you'd love deadpool

I think that's why JP works for me...I don't think I'll ever wrap my head around what everything does for scoring strategy....but - I totally understand the concept of getting through the park, trapping Dinos & rescuing people (and the rules for the Raptor & T-Rex stuff)...plus, the shots feel so awesome and unique, especially when you're on a combo roll. So, that's what I'd need to see about AIQ...will the stuff I can comprehend feel satisfying, or is it TOO much score/tourney-strategy stuff?

#3189 37 days ago

Again I am confused how potential RAZA buyers getting a refund are responsible for the 300+ people.

Only the mentally challenged can not understand the difference here.

I’d like to know as well as I want a premium or want to trade for one.

It’s a lot different from JP.
It’s main mode based, each mode is a gem.
It gets alittle repetitive despite the unique layout. It also gets discouraging when you lose a mode. That’s playing as a progression player not a score player.

I feel JP is a better game.

Back to deeproot and Robert Mueller.

BOA and Mastercard have reversed their decision and WON'T BE refunding my money.

Lesson learned....cash is king...especially cash on the glass.

Wish I could burn deeproot also but I can't.

What's in your wallet?

That sucks about your Credit Card company. But I appreciate your candor in posting about it publicly. It's helpful for others to know and I suspect most people in the same situation will remain silent or pretend all is good.
You're a stand up guy, TP.

That sucks, but is not surprising. I found it to be more surprising that people were being successful with their chargebacks.

Mastercard confirmed a refund/ boa reneged by saying couldn't recoup the money passed the buck back to mastercard where I decided to exit the ride.
