Quoted from roar:
I'm guessing you were looking to make a point though rather than looking for an answer?
Actually interested in an answer, I prefer games “stock” as well, but usually that means settings and adjustments in software, and where the outlane posts and such come installed from the factory.
I don’t think TWD was designed to drain SDTM from the pops constantly, so I would be fine with a fat post if that’s what was needed to help. However, if it made the game NEVER drain out of the pops, that’s not the design either IMO.
I think all games constantly change and can be tweaked to make them play however the owner thinks the designer would have liked.
If a sling or pop is dead-ish from the factory, no shame in changing the stock setup.
And if you care,….tilt with the bob about halfway through the ring, levelers about halfway through the legs in the back, adjust from there to what’s seems “stock”. (That usually makes a game steeper than the middle-bubble, which I find way too floaty)
Those are my “stock” settings.
