    Quoted from Multiballmaniac1:

    I attended my first large pinball show this weekend...

    Yep, sounds like it.

    Quoted from vid1900:

    So many that I wonder if people bring their broken games just to get free boardwork done by the techs working the show.

    The funny part is you "wondering" when you know that cheap asses do it!

    #47 1 year ago

    Rage tilts are just part of pinball; the cheaper they make them they are still commercial machines and can handle it.

    Quoted from TigerLaw:

    Only a part of location Pinball. No one has ever raged tilted a game in my home for example...at least never in the ways being described here in this thread.

    Well yes location pinball, like a pinball show.
    Just because no one is rough with your machines doesn't mean it doesn't happen. I've banged back on my TZ plenty of times which would amazingly make half the people here cringe.
    It's all what your history is...I came from commercial business side were you need to move the ball from a stuck position or not make monies. I didn;t have keys so there isn't much option then to shake the4 shit out of it. Pick up drop, it's been done. These machines get shipped cross sountry stadning on their legs for god sakes. People that are introduced in home ownership see it a little diff'rent.

    Quoted from Outlanes:

    I see a distinct difference between a for profit business and guys volunteering their machines for our shows.

    So do I...I'm just telling you people at a pinball show are not all super pinsiders or even pinball enthusiasts...they're just the same normal folk that beat on machines since the dawn of man

    Quoted from TigerLaw:

    Nonsense. Disrespecting someone’s game by ....

    Blah blah blah...I understand that. I'm not telling you that I would do it, or you should do it...I'm telling you PEOPLE will do it.
    My only point is that the machines can handle it.

    Quoted from TigerLaw:

    A Pinball show and location Pinball are not the same thing.

    Well not to you, a man that owns a bunch of pinball machines. To some putz off the street that sees something cool to do for a Saturday it may be.

    Quoted from Multiballmaniac1:

    . I am still having nightmares.

    Gonna be a rough ride for you in this hobby.

    #94 1 year ago

    It's not just casuals... Multiple threads on pinside aboot people thinking nudging and moving machines is the wrong way to play.

    Seriously this shit is real

    Quoted from NorCalRealtor:

    You mean death save? That's a no-no.

    Doesn't sound like one

    #108 1 year ago
    Quoted from gjm7777:

    If I saw someone lift up a machine and drop it I'd probably give them a roundhouse to the jaw with my fresh white new balance thus reducing it to bird seed.

    Pretty weak...In Texas they curb stomp you.

    Quoted from Grizlyrig:

    I know that wasn't what you meant but if I bring a machine again it will have the tilt bob tightened up a bit more.

    Yeah that should calm down the abusers

    Quoted from shacklersrevenge:

    Good lord that was painful to read.

    It's actually pretty goddamn funny.

    Quoted from gjm7777:

    I don't know how my jean shorts would fair after me exercising this method of justice...

    That shit is gold man.

    #125 1 year ago
    Quoted from Vino:

    Ill say this now, if for whatever reason I’m ever caught wearing jean shorts please just kick my ass.

    Yeah but what if you had fresh white New Balance? It evens the look out fo sho

    #129 1 year ago
    Quoted from Mistermoberg:

    The game was open, so I took off the lockdown bar, and wiped down underneath it with my shirt.

    Whoa whoa whoa...bro you disrespected someones machine by opening it?!?@!?

    Quoted from Mistermoberg:

    I've never seen anyone do that before.

    This is the kind of people you get at a show, arcade, bar....anywhere.

    #138 1 year ago
    Quoted from gjm7777:

    I thought it read as complete and obvious sarcasm honestly, no I wasn't serious.

    Haha these show threads get people emotional so that was it. I mean it's very obviously a joke...goddamn bird seed...post of the week

    Quoted from Phat_Jay:

    And what do we do with witches and rude people at shows??

    Nothing at the time and slink off to Pinside and complain behind their backs?

    #174 1 year ago
    Quoted from Colsond3:

    Do I expect a game I bring to a two or three day pinball show to come home with significant damage or in need of serious repairs? I shouldn’t.

    People perceiving being rough with a game is the issue here. No one is coming home with significant damage.

    #177 1 year ago
    Quoted from Colsond3:

    Here’s some help for when you make it out to the show next year. #stoppinabuse

    Yes, we've all seen Bowen do it 1000 times in videos and everyone loves it.

    #188 1 year ago
    Quoted from Colsond3:

    When I spend a good amount of money and 100+ hours restoring a game…yeah, I don’t want someone roughly shaking or sliding it around.

    Just keep it at home in the diaper rubbing zone then

    Quoted from pinbum:

    Was that you sweating & molesting all over my NBA ?

    No one has ever been that exciting aboot an NBA

    Quoted from timab2000:

    Just one of the reasons you will never see any of may games brought to any kind of event.

    Boo fucking whom.
