Quoted from iceman44:

I don't like to watch Elwin play, it depresses me
Got my LE set up tonight. Zero clue what i'm doing yet but its phenomenal. 360k top score was wild after a handful of plays.

Quoted from Diospinball:

So... With any luck I should be getting my Prem next Friday... And if not next Friday then I should and by should I mean better get it the next week. And early into it. Can't wait to play it. Now... I just need to fix my breakshot again(got it all up and running and now the flippers suck again), and I still need to fix my hardbody flippers... I really wish there was a reliable and affordable pinball mechanic in my area. I paid about 184 dollars to have my breakshot fixed... And the guy didn't fix everything and the bankshot stopped working 5 minutes after he left... But, that is a diatribe for another thread... I'm getting my Iron Maiden. And its going to be sweet... But, sometimes I wish I would have just gotten a pro. But, I really do think in the long run the Prem/LE playfield is the way to go. Just more stuff, and I love the capture newton ball idea...
Stupid question. But, has that been done before? And if so on what pins?

I’m afraid you’re on your own.

I was fortunate to get my hands on one of the last LEs available and picked mine up in May.
I had really enjoyed playing the Pro model in Allentown for a couple of days (thanks Cointaker!!!), and still enjoyed it initially when I got mine home but I found it lost its luster pretty quickly. I had left it on factory settings and just found it too difficult I guess?
(Mostly, I found the shots were pretty tough -especially the left ramp.)
So that meant that most of the modes were more of a chore than fun, and rarely did I get through them.
Multiballs were "ok" but not as exciting as Blood Bath in TWD, or multiball modes on ACDC.

I've been playing it a lot recently and seem to have turned a corner; I can make the left ramp shot "well enough", and now understand most of the modes before they start. It's not uncommon for me to score a shard or two in a game depending which modes I get. As for the multiballs, I'm pretty stoked about Pharoah. Knowing what you need to hit to get the add a ball is fantastic. Unlike ACDC or Bloodbath, you have to really focus and make just a few important shots -flailing wont get the job done here.

Anyway long story short, this has quickly become one of my favourite games. A lot of people I've talked to haven't played it yet -and I expect that as more people get some time on it, that it will become more and more popular. I just hope that people play it enough to get over the initial "tough factor" that I experienced.

I hate to say it, but I don't mind the music anymore. Guess I'm completely brainwashed!

Uhhh... Up the irons?
