    Not trying to be a punk but maybe you would get a better response if you were more factual with your complaints.

    "I paid $8000 for a KISS LE which has not had the code finished, let alone updated since the release. Oops, that's a lie, they did provide an update for the $400 topper I foolishly bought as well. Since it's release, they've distributed GAME OF THRONES, which has managed to get 26 updates. And now GHOSTBUSTERS is scheduled for release."

    Kiss has had 5 updates - Not zero as you claim. (not sure if any of those weren't public releases like GOT has had)
    GOT has had 10 updates - Not 26 as you claim. Most those weren't official updates that were distributed either. For instance 1.23 was the last update before 1.26 but they show an update at 1.24 and 1.25. Most of these updates were node board type fixes as well vs game changes.

    I can understand your frustrations but exaggeration as part of a complaint makes it less like to get a positive response as the person reading your complaint may deem you as an unreasonable person.

    Fair enough- after having the game since July (approximately 8 months), the details are foggy. The game shipped at v1.3, there have been two updates since- one was to animate the topper. The other was immediately after shipment.

    In regards to GOT, I did not purchase one. I do not know what version it shipped at, nor which revisions were rules updates, but at v1.26, there's an alarming amount of attention being directed to a product which was released after another remains incomplete.

    How do hou know if you are on the blacklist?

    Cause i cannot respond to recent stern facebook topics. But i never did anyway.

    Still looks like they banned me, must be something wrong.

    #5 3 years ago

    I'm not on their blacklist, but I'm pretty sure I'm on their ignore list. I've asked two questions and gotten exactly zero responses.

    No, they've got it right.

    A community of one, it appears. Great first post. Good luck in your crusade.

    #8 3 years ago

    If you're no longer allowed to post or comment on their page, you're on their blacklist

    What! Stern can't hear you.

    #10 3 years ago

    Has Kiss been abandoned? Seems to be a shame if so with that awesome looking playfield artwork.

    #11 3 years ago

    It has not.

    #12 3 years ago

    That is good to hear. Might consider getting one someday when the code gets more developed.

    Well, Wheel of Fortune is WAY, WAY more incomplete than KISS, so by your logic, that should be getting the attention first? (Not that I would complain, but WoF ain't ever getting fixed, so...)

    #14 3 years ago

    Well it's been a year since the last ST update. And the game still has bugs. It came out before TWD, mustang, wWE, KISS, GOT, and ghostbusters.

    And avengers took almost 3 years to get the last update so I say it will probably be coming eventually.

    "Stay tuned"

    What if I were to mail you of packet of acrylic washers???

    #18 3 years ago

    No one forced anyone to buy a single pinball machine. If you don't like the code schedule, purchase a completed game.

    WoF is actually in good shape. The only problem I understand is the missing wizard mode, which is nearly impossible to get to anyway. It's definitely not "WAY, WAY more incomplete".

    #21 3 years ago

    I'm on the blacklist since the announcement of Star Trek. :p

    #22 3 years ago

    I never got any responses, mostly deleted. The contact from the site just gets me "I will have to look at this"

    Nope. Going from memory (haven't had it for a couple years), the trip modes are incomplete/very basic, there are missing callouts, Extra ball is just text saying "extra ball" - nothing special at all - there's LOTS of stuff missing/raw. Spend a week with it and the problems are glaring. Goes way beyond a missing wizard mode.

    They know my name and pinside handle by heart at Stern. I think they breathed a sigh of relief when I didn't get a GB.
