Quoted from PanzerFreak:

Here's in my opinion the ideal solution.
One giant disk looks out of place and doesn't appear to represent anything from the movies. 3 smaller disks that could fit within the same playfield cutout would mean no major playfield changes. Heck, this would probably be even better then the original design for customers seeing that the map would still live on through the LCD, 3 spinning disks could represent something entirely different adding yet another layer of depth to the game.
3 of these motors and disks could be used in a triangle configuration where the current disk is. A bracket that would hold all 3 would fill in the entire cutout area which could then be removed for easy serviceability.

how many different places you going to post your brilliant idea?
you know you're going to talk yourself into buying it either way.

Quoted from solarvalue:

Very poor mock-up of 3 discs (a-la-Whirlwind) with pointers for the award feature:

Is this a joke?
Why does everyone think they have a solution to, what appears to Jjp as, not even a problem.
Jjp addressed the issue and made the changes according to their designers and professional staff. If you don’t like it, don’t buy it.

Quoted from Guinnesstime:

These suggestions are wildly entertaining.
Kinda disappointed no one suggested a live fish tank. This is JJP people!

Did I miss the press release where JJP is asking the public for suggestions to replace the disks?

I would not be surprised at all if Jjp releases the three spinning disks as a mod or in a LE version in the future.
Probably aready plannned but they’ll say they finally got the mechanics to work properly when sales start to slow.

Posting this here again.
I don't think that's fair based on what Jack said in the interview. I just started listening and to be fair Jack does apologize right off the bat and says the days of JJP showing a game that isn't ready to be shipped are over. Jack also said the mechanism wasn't reliable to be put in games and they don't want another light board fiasco. He said he rather endure criticism right now to make a bullet proof game. Makes sense. Jack said pre-orders are not sales, well he's right. He also said he's respectful of his customers opinions, said the negative reactions come with the territory, etc. Jack also mentioned that the 3x disk will not be in a future version of POTC, maybe in another game one day if they can get it to work.
Good interview and feedback. I think POTC will stand on its own when all is said and done.

You can never post the same thing enough times! Keep it up.
