After a few years of playing. I started to watch a lot of competition pinball. I'm just a casual player. I can play a bit, I can live catch, drop catch, post pass and I'm finally getting comfortable with the alley pass. I can't tap pass to save my life. I guess I'm wondering what the top competitive players have that we mere mortals don't. I'm guessing shot accuracy is the most important thing, if you never miss a shot you'll win everytime. From what I have observed in top players like Keith Elwin or Daniele Acciari is their incredible multiball control. They don't call it the Elwin pose for nothing. I'm comparing these two players because they are very different and both very successful. Keith plays a controlled game, always cradling up and measuring his shots. The man has total flipper skills and sick control. Daniele is fast and loose, doesn't cradle much, doesn't tap pass but he is also very successful, he has amazing accuracy. The thing they both have in common other than ice in their veins is their innate ability to control multiple balls it's superhuman. Watch Daniele play Jackbot against Cayle George and you will see what I'm talking about. So I pose the question to our best players here like Levi and Colin . What is it that truly separates a great competitive player from a great arcade player?
