Hey guys...I've been really improving my shot accuracy over the past few weeks. Learning how to pass, combo, cradle, etc. But what I can't seem to figure out is how to keep the ball from draining down the sides on my LOTR LE. I have the post set high. It just seems like the ball will come off the slings and shoot right down the out lanes, with barely any time to save. Here are some questions I have:
1. What's the best way to save a ball that's heading to the out lanes?
2. If it's going down the left out lane, do I smack the left or the right side of the machine?
3 Should I be shaking the machine left and right, or forward to back?
4. Should I start nudging when it's at the slings, or even before? Like if I see it's heading towards slings, should I start nudging then?
Having watched people play at Expo, I think I'm much too friendly on my machine. Like I never TILT at home or even get dangers. But watching the pros play, they have the machine rocking and rolling.
I don't want to move the side posts down, but I'm getting lots of drains. Even on 5 ball I'm having trouble hitting There and Back Again. I'd rather improve than make the game easier. Your friendly neophyte pinhead,
