    There are all sorts of bad breaks when it comes to pinball...but there's nothing I hate more than an up-and-over on the outlane. It's the absolute worst!

    I can’t play pinball with people that get pissed off when they play. It ruins the fun.

    #4 2 years ago

    Losing a ball from it jumping a flipper or a ball guide is bad.

    Draining the last ball when an Extra Ball opportunity is open on the playfield. Drives me nuts!

    That's why I said irritates. I don't get angry, but I may let loose a four letter word!

    So if someone picks a game up three feet and slams it down. Kicks the bottom of the machine hard. Knees the door in. You might not be able to play on ?

    Not being able to hear the game due to other games being played or music being blasted.

    #11 2 years ago

    Major irritation ball getting stuck and having to lower glass to free it.

    #12 2 years ago

    My bad play irritates me more than anything I'd say.

    #13 2 years ago

    *&^%$# outlanes.

    #14 2 years ago

    Power going out during the most awesome game ever!

    #15 2 years ago

    When I have to go to sleep

    #16 2 years ago

    A magnet flinging the ball SDTM.

    #17 2 years ago

    Missing replay by a few hundred points , then getting match while it’s on free play anyway

    #18 2 years ago

    Superbands.

    #19 2 years ago

    One shot left to make a .......

    My shots: brick, brick, brick, wrong target, brick, drain.

    Noooooooo!!!

    #20 2 years ago

    I heard there was nothing worse than a tote bag sitting on a pin or boogers on your flipper buttons! They can absolutely ruin an imamaculate pin

    #21 2 years ago

    Someone explaining the rules of a pin I’m playing for the first time. Half of the fun of pinball is exploring and discovering the wonders the designer built into the game.

    Nope, even if they owned the game, the childish display would send me elsewhere.

    #23 2 years ago

    * House balls
    * Bally drop targets that refuse to drop
    * A burned out bulb in a roll over lane that makes it challenging to figure out which lane to go for
    * Glare/reflections that camouflage half the playfield

    Unless it is sex, it can wait,

    Be up in a minute I need some “me time”

    #25 2 years ago

    a feed out of a saucer or a holding magnet that goes STDM, like a Mata Hari a The Walking Dead (Premium/LE) or even a Star Trek (Pro)

    #26 2 years ago

    When a game is set up incorrectly at a location which causes a ball that is suppose to feed to a flipper feeds SDTM. I’ve played a Fishtales that plunged SDTM due to poor leveling.

    Playing the best ball of your life only to realize you drained the first 2 in 20 seconds. The “what if” game.

    Quoted from Yelobird:

    Playing the best ball of your life only to realize you drained the first 2 in 20 seconds. The “what if” game.

    Usually for me, it's an amazing first ball followed by two immediate drains.

    The Walking Dead in a nutshell

    #31 2 years ago

    Getting an orb lock then having the magnet toss it into the left outlane on Guardians.

    Doesn’t happen on well designed games. Dump GB, problem solved.

    #37 2 years ago

    Late night, finally getting to relax, crack a beer, turn my game on and- credit dot error.

    #38 2 years ago

    In the middle of a good to phenomenal ball
    and someone says
    "Dude, you're jammin!
    A fast drain is sure to follow.
    Irritating to no end.

    #39 2 years ago

    Trying to re-assemble something and losing a screw below a ramp and two layers of plastics, then proceeding to lift the playfield to try and work it loose and make it fall in the to the cabinet so I can struggle to spot and reach it and try the whole process over again.

    Even more irritating is when they proceed to tell you what to shoot for when you’re already playing well

    #41 2 years ago

    When you George Brett your pants in the middle of a great game

    #42 2 years ago

    When you try to get so fancy with the flipper that you end up not even flipping at all...

    #43 2 years ago

    You fight and fight and FINALLY make your shot and earn a extra ball then it immediately drains.

    #45 2 years ago

    Making an amazing save that has a drain immediately afterwards. It’s like the save didn’t even happen. Haha

    #46 2 years ago

    Your opponent at a tournament begins the match by telling you how bad they are and how they have no chance to win. Followed by them getting every lucky bounce possible, and you get house balls.

    #47 2 years ago

    Hate (Stern) spotlight pops out in middle of game.

    Quoted from Rarehero:

    It actually happens on my GotG and MMr. Most often, it's when drop catching and the spin of the ball takes it up and over.

    #49 2 years ago

    Unlevel pins

    Playing next to someone with bad B.O.

    Dudes who take pinball too seriously and have tantrums when they drain

    Loose and sloppy lock down bars
