I was kind of thinking the same thing. The games I've played on the ones on route here don't seem to be drain monsters to the outlines all that much. I actually think the metal rails in Metallica on the left inlane is more or an issue.

Heck, if it makes people enjoy there game more, then I say to go for it, but I don't see this being all that necessary.

It would be nice to see some of the audits from those that feel this is a problem vs those that don't feel it's an issue. I'd do it but I don't own TWD I have noticed that some examples of the game are really bad with SDTM out of the pops. I wonder if this is a case of some games just being more outline hungry than others or if it's a perceived issue.

Post up those audits that show the % of drains to the outlanes vs SDTM. Would be interesting to compare them.

Seems to be about what I expected from the limited play I've had on the game. Curious to see if others have about the same distribution. For kicks and giggles I took 3 of my games and did the same to see how they paired. They all are pretty close with the exception of the right drain on my ST. That side is killing me

For my games take note that all my lanes are wide open with the exception of AC/DC. Tilts are super tight as I'm trying to learn to nudge without tilting on tournament type games.

Here is a spreadsheet I made to compare the games (yes I know that is borderline OCD/nerdy) and picks to show I'm not making this stuff up. I'll insert figures in for others if they would like.

***TWD is Stack15's audits as I don't own TWD.***

P.S. - Thanks for letting me participate in this thread. It sparked curiosity on if our perceptions are right about drain games.

Updated the chart with that and fixed my ST error. Shouldn't have been trying to do this so late last night I guess.
