    The cliffy on Creature is an obvious necessity. Still, when I get that bounce out on a Super Jackpot shot to the snackbar scoop, you better believe I will blame him for it.

    Quoted from littlecammi:

    If a ball gets nicked up from hitting a metal protector (and you don't notice the nicks and remove the ball) it can travel around the playfield inflicting other damage.

    If you think the impact of the ball hitting a cliffy is enough to create premature ball wear then consider the same impact force is at play on the playfield hole, which is why a protector was necessitated in the first place. The right course of action is to just inspect and replace your pinballs as needed, which in a home environment is still probably only once every few years.
