I'll take April Fool's Day rage over "the sword is crooked and other thoughts on art" and "JJP / WOZ version 612: Black Knight thread edition" any day.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go back to drooling over the high rez pics from the announce.

April fools!.. I'm not passing up on Steve Ritchie.. Black Knight, and Metal! \m/.. Disappointed more of you didn't take the bait though.. If this game ships with incomplete code though.. you better know I'll be bitching about this goof off session prior to launch!

#1804 1 year ago

Thinking about canceling my LE order now too. My reasoning is that I don’t want to support a company whose customers would get so insulted they’d get butt hurt over an April fools gag and overreact. I’ve never bought a nib LE before and was looking forward to this, but dammit! I won’t be starting now. Thanks Stern.

#1805 1 year ago

Not sure if this is up there with throwing raw meat to the dogs, but it comes close. People have been dying for 13 seconds more of game play and they palpitate the hearts of SR and Stern fans with a tease like this on AFD and we mere mortals need but to shrug it off as a “Whoo-ha-ha!” from the Black Knight himself? I am wondering if they harvested his steel balls to build the first flail prototype?

Now admit..did you really get the BKSOR LE for $8500? Or maybe I'll ask you tomorrow.

#1808 1 year ago

So to sum up today’s thread activity:

People got upset at someone who couldn’t take an April fools joke, which ironically was also just another April fools joke. So they did the very thing they were upset about someone else doing in the first place.

I love the internet

#1809 1 year ago

I'm so worked up about this I'm cancelling on not buying one! I think that will certainly make a statement...

Yes, and of all things all this actually took place............( wait for it )........on.........April Fools day

#1813 1 year ago

It’s still April 1st so I’m gonna assume @knockerlover is reverse trolling. Well done bub.

There is no way something so small could set a person ablaze like that unless they wanted to be angry in the first place. ❤️

#1814 1 year ago

Wow Jack. Way to read the whole thread.
Came in to say knockerlover has to be trolling. Hahaha

Well done dude. ❤️❤️

#1815 1 year ago

You can't even trust the trolls on April Fools day.

#1816 1 year ago

I'm more pissed at Burger King for all of this and I'll be taking my business to Wendy's

I fell for it,... because it's a total realistic thing for a pinsider to do.

#1819 1 year ago

Does anyone think the clear upper PF is going to be so scratched after a short while so you won't be able to see thru it? I had a WPT that had this issue and with the recent cheapening that Stern does I wouldn't doubt if the plastic isn't has durable as in the past. I ordered a pro but really like the look of the upper PF. I'd like to play one first and upgrade later if possible but that plastic playfield has me concerned.

I think the PRO is going to grow on people and sell very well despite the purist, nostalgic side of the upper models.

I'm a Pinball lifer and have owned original BK and am very happy with the look of this PRO.

It's 2019, it's a new game on an older theme, accept that and not necessary to have hang ups re upper PF. I too think it will scratch up btw but that's not the reason I'm on a Pro here. Upper doesn't offer enough for the Aussie $ price difference.

#1821 1 year ago

I want to know why Danger and Sexton got Chicken and only Steve got the Whopper. The Whopper is obviously the closest to an LE meal, But figuring out which of the other two meals were Pro and Premium were confusing to me. They should have posted shots of the Burger King Meal Matrix Order Board.

Next we'll hear from the JJP crowd how their staff eat at Cousins Subs or something and how much better the food is and has more robust features.

I don't know what the WPT Playfield is made of in detail (plastic is not plastic) but the Lexan Ac/Dc Vault lower-playfield-window seems to do fine.

I wouldn't be concerned. You can always remove the playfield and polish it, or just buy a new one. the one's for WPT are like $60.

Elvis had a similar lexan playfield as well and I don't really hear anyone complain about durability.

It seems most of the in-playfield lexan windows hold up just fine, and can readily be polished back to crystal clear. I've seen Millionaires, Haunted Houses, Speakeasies, Tee'd Offs, and Creatures, to name a few, with tons of plays, and the windows looked as good as new.

If it will only take 30 seconds to remove the upper playfield as claimed, nothing a little novus and a rag couldn't fix. This would be a non issue for me. But is the locking mech and window and minor additional code worth $1700 more? That's the real question in all of this.

What the sourpusses don't get, DF, is that the joke IS actually on all of you guys this morning.

I laughed my ass off watching the video and chat comments this morning; you guys are probably all literally sh#%ing your asses off now after eating BK...I applaud your intestinal commitment to such a great, hilarious trolling. Bravo!

In all seriousness, I look forward to the first game play streams, keep up the great work as always!

#1829 1 year ago

deadflip after that epic troll (not that we didn’t see it coming , but admittedly hoped we were wrong) you need to let us know when we can see this thing for real before MGC ??

#1830 1 year ago

Good April fools joke!

Looking forward to this game. I still play before I buy. For those that don’t, Dead Flip is sooooo much better than having to guess from a picture. Also, I enjoy the commentary from the designers etc.

Stern is getting pretty darn good at releasing games.
Teaser trailers
Tons of high res photos in Day 1
Dead Flip streams
And games out the door soon after.

That’s pretty impressive.

#1831 1 year ago

you can't wait 10 days for MGC reveal?

pretty sure they have said the public reveal will be at MGC?

#1833 1 year ago

I like the side art for the Premium, but I like the backglass art for the LE more. Wish I could just order the LE as a translite for the Premium....

#1834 1 year ago

By a LE and put Premium side art on it

I feel like this is always the case for me, like Iron Maiden.. I love LE backglass, and the pro cabinet..

#1836 1 year ago

Stern of the Union will let you know when the reveal stream is. That should go out to you all today!

More industrial and dangerous, but the results are stellar.

Quoted from knockerlover:

Would be nice if Stern offered LE backglasses as separate translites for sale. There'd be no disrespect to LE buyers I think, in that case. I felt the same way about GBLE. I wanted the LE backglass art on a translite for mounting. No one but Stern could do this, as it's their IP. IMHO.

Plenty of illegal ripoffs on ebay UK. Really don't know why Stern don't put a stop to it and sell themselves.

Didn't know that. No shits given so I'd be down for that.

I can .. but I’m happy to see it sooner

Plus I prefer when deadflip streams from the factory less noise than a show get some good insight from designers .

I personally love the excitement of a show reveal where the buying public gets to play and enjoy them all for the first time

I’m sure Jack will do both. Munsters had its reveal at CEC and a more intimate walk through with designers in the Stern lunch room later that week.

Edit: maybe he’ll do another from knockerlover s under-bridge game room

I'm operating ACDC VE. The window gets scratched up and hazy. Have had to pull it to polish it multiple times.

I'm generally a fan of upper playfields, but not too keen on plastic ones. I don't get this gripe about not being able to see the ball when it goes underneath. Maybe a newb thing?

I wouldnt kick BK prem/LE out of bed, but I'm going Pro.

Would've went prem if the upper pf was wood w/artwork & inserts etc.

#1849 1 year ago

I canceled my preorder for a pro today. Decided to wait and see and play the game at MGC.

#1850 1 year ago

This game is going to be soooooo amazing I just can't wait for it Im losing my mind I needed it nowwwwwwww
