Quoted from FatPanda:
Seriously, how are you guys getting these scores? My GC is ~435 Mill with two extra balls (one for walker kills and one as a replay award). All settings on default, 7 degree incline, no outlane saver mods or anything.
On a Pro.
That's the best ball I've ever had on TWD, and probably any game for that matter!
I haven't played it in a while, but I did play it last night about 3 times, and my average score was about 70 million. Then today working at home, I decided to put it a game after lunch, and that first ball was just bananas! I really thought this was going to be my LMS game!
I'm not an experienced pinball player, but from my knowledge of pinball and this game, I think the goal is really to time the your bloodbath with your well walker, and then get that target bank down before it times out. When you're in that big multiball, you really need to do you best hitting as many shots as possible. I had a multi-kill going, and I was able to hit the 2x kill shots a few times.
I no longer focus on Horde or Terminus. I am in it for the walkers, and I try my best to make good use of multiballs.
But for every good game I have, I have about 50 terrible ones haha!
I was wondering this the other day. Seems the Prem/LE is a bit easier because you can be saved by that lockdown button. At least that is what I thought I saw watching MicSirTuna doing it. I've played a premium at a friend's place a few times, and even the side drains seems kinder compared to mine (likely due to just game-to-game differences and set up).
I keep all my games at 6.5 by the bubble, as I want to try playing them as close as possible to the way the designer intended them. Just my personal preference.
