Quoted from Join_The_Cirqus:

Thanks for the Kind words
It is currently my favorite game, i have it set on Hard and the Levelers raised up all the way in the back.
There were nice lines of 6-8 people for most of the night waiting to play again.

I know this has been covered before, but I'll say it again, just in case you missed it before.

Increasing the playfield angle actually makes the game easier in most cases. (Unless it makes ramps tough to hit.) Generally speaking, there is much less side to side ball travel, and balls are easier to catch and control on the flipper.

You should level games left to right, and set the playfield angle recommended by the designer. Usually 6.5 degrees.

A shallower angle will cause more float play with lots of outline drains.

Steeper will cause the ball to fall more predictably, and you may have more center drains.

Obviously, it depends on the pin, but generally speaking, Steeper=Harder is a misconception.
