Quoted from WaddleJrJr:

Bombs dropping on the DMD? It's been a while since I've played a WPT, but I don't remember that happening. Where's it at in the game?

I was wondering the same thing. Perhaps deeper into the game than I've reached yet (?)

Yeah someone asked earlier about theme integration and I think that's hard to identify. Putting a dragon on top of the targaryan shot that shoots violently back at you is a good example I guess....but it's not like the right orbit in the game has anything to do with Martell. Does the stern with best theme integration have to have every single shot represent something from the theme?

And if that's the case, how do tron or wheel of fortune's orbits have anything to do with their themes?

It's not necessarily how a particular shot looks or acts on the ball, it's how the game acts on you hitting said shot. Like in my AMH example, the door isn't necessarily tied to being the morgue, the ball goes through there at many different times and the shot itself is tied to many different things within the theme itself.

In fact, if each shot were tied down to a specific thing, your games would be very narrow in terms of theme integration, because every element of the theme that can be integrated would be restricted to what items are on the playfield.
