Quoted from pipes:

If that's true, it doesn't say much for the all star team they assembled over there. It takes Cary Hardy to come in and tell them what they've been doing wrong for the past 3 or 4 years? Wow.

Well most of the all stars are gone. There's David Thiel, who I'm sure put an excellent sound package on the game, and Steve Bowden. Steve is a great player, but it is his first rodeo as a rules designer. Who knows, maybe Steve (or one of the many other team members) made the game too difficult or obtuse.

It's just insane that everything was fine before the media came, and now it's unacceptable to display.

Truer the deeproot delay all Stern Avengers pinball machines are now sold out.

Quoted from thedarkknight77:

Robert is a millennial caught in a grown man’s body.

You realize, of course, that millennials are 24-39 years old now...right grandpa?

#10355 36 days ago

How does this effect the people who signed the goodwill agreement? Weren't they owed something this month?

#10356 36 days ago

Ugh

That just makes me want to know even more about what exact feedback was given that made them change all their plans. It is presumably significant, and at the very least another symptom of fundamental disfunction.

B.d. - Bigger delay

Deeproot is the only company that can make JJP look efficient, competent, and reliable.

#10359 36 days ago
Quoted from JodyG:

I am calling it now...Deeproot folds by October.

The point of "calling it" is to do so before the the appearance of fact. I recommend you reread this entire thread.

#10360 36 days ago

As mentioned in the above announcement from deeproot, myself and other guests gave feedback during and after the event, and I definitely agree that postponing launch was the right decision.

#10361 36 days ago

Astonishing.

Even if you have to delay for some reason or other, show something today.

After all the jibes over the years, the teaser counts down to a big fat SFA

#10363 36 days ago

"in refining our platform to be the best it can be."

If you keep making it perfect, it will end up broken.

#10364 36 days ago

Deeproot: Hey we are ready to show you our surprise pinball innovations.

The best thing deeproot can do now is be 100% transparent, and discuss the concerns/issues brought up by the guests.

Stopping people from talking with NDAs is not a good look or good will towards the community they need to succeed.

#10367 36 days ago

So... is the right ramp makeable or not?

#10368 36 days ago

There's a limit to Patience, Jeez!

My fear is that Robert Muller, is now bored of pinball, and has moved on, classic cars, maybe yachts.

" Building pinball machines is HARD " Nate Shivers
That's a real dissapointment.

SPOOKY rules the school!

This is absolutely embarrassing. DR is not even a beta level company so they shouldn’t try and host beta events.

You would think that with all the experienced industry people employed it wouldn't take some outsiders to come in and tell them when they're ready to launch.

That is the astonishing part.

#10374 36 days ago

Pack it up, this ship has sailed.

#10375 36 days ago

At this point Homepin's Chinese Zombies has a better shot at stealing sales from Stern. Like two sales, but still.

#10376 36 days ago

What's in the box??

Mice ? They stick like Velcro who knew.

#10377 36 days ago
Quoted from halflip87:

I like this line:
We “hope” to update you during this process...
What the hell does that mean? Why wouldn’t you keep people updated, it’s your own damn company. Either you will or you won’t. So strange.

I can't get past this either.

Sounds kind of like a defeatist thing to say.

#10378 36 days ago

DR should have just made a reskin of Adams Family and we would all have been happy...........3 years ago.

If the employees all start selling thier houses, we know Mueller is closing shop.

If so, we can all stop hoping.

Quoted from brucipher:

You notice how this part wasn’t addressed right?

They just solidified the breach of contract claim if it’s even worth the f ing effort

Why wait almost a FULL YEAR to bring in some media beta testers!!!

Just more excuses and incompetence.

I live right here and buy a shit load of games.

I could have told them what they needed to know months ago

Just f ing amazing

#10383 36 days ago

Anyone think that more than 0 RAZA's will be shipped in 2020?

#10384 36 days ago

It’s only 1 employee but sheds some light

#10385 36 days ago

They didn't know that they had to postpone the launch until only minutes before?

For a company with so much brass and intelligence as they claim to possess, they surely don't know much on how to avoid bad PR.

#10386 36 days ago
Quoted from gonzo73:

I'm serious on this, is it Austin tx? Some pinsider in tx, find out where Bowden, popadiuk, and the others live, drive by the house's and see if there are for sale signs in the yards.
If so, we can all stop hoping.
Serious Message from the Freeeek Kingdom.

It is in San Antonio. Please do not encourage any harassment of Bowden. The dude is a treasure, and I can guarantee is more let down by deep root than probably anyone else.

#10390 36 days ago
Quoted from Mr68:

Come on Pinside. Cary Hardy, TWIP and others flew to Texas for the reveal. Its already happened, reports are being put together as we speak and will come soon.
Did you already forget seeing this picture? Seriously, relax people.[quoted image]

Hindsight... but man... A STABLE full of industry vets... given an extra 7 months.. on top of the extra years... is shown the light and put in place by a group of social media no-ones?

How can anyone take these clowns seriously? You goto the last minute of the eleventh hour, and this 'feedback' is enough to stop EVERYTHING? Hell, they didn't even cancel on time.

How do you invest years and hundreds of thousands of dollars... to be enlightened by a handful of podcasters who haven't even been around the block?

I don't even know how anyone can show their face again in the light of this kind of colossal f up. The dirt needs to come out.

No. Let's not take this to that level. Stalking is not acceptable no matter how much deeproot pile drove this shit show.

#10392 36 days ago

Wich one, or are you just late to the party?

#10393 36 days ago

Well if that was day 1 of deeproot, I can’t wait to see what day 2 brings us!!

#10394 36 days ago

Hmm deep root = derailed realizations... what a joke. And to all those championing this disaster. Robert just spanked on your faces, as Nelson would say Ha Ha...

I wonder how many of these "Dream teamers" are actually still employed and pulling a paycheck. You got that disgruntled Utah animation studio who posted here about the unceremonial end of their paychecks. Bowden posted "I MAY be taking a break recently." I'm sure Barry is off filming COVID Hoax youtube videos somewhere...is Deep Root a functioning company any more? I'm sure if all those dream teamers were around it wouldn't take a group of "pinball celebs" entering the building for them to figure out there were serious problems with the game design.

#10396 36 days ago

Do we have an updated launch date?

#10397 36 days ago

One (or all) of those streaming dudes finally convinced them to change the right ramp?

I feel sorry for those who are actually want this game. I lost all interest in anything Popadiuk after SW:ep1 and have been amazed he's still around after so many flameouts. At some point you gotta pack it up and just sell insurance.

#10398 36 days ago

We have seen this show before.

Didn't Nordman leave also? He left Heighway as a precursor to a shit show. Maybe his nose should be trusted.
