Quoted from yancy:
Yeah, the part where he starts yelling & swearing, pretty cringe-inducing. "Next week I could die in a fiery crash down the highway, and I'm not worried about, ooh, my brake pads have a little bit of residue and cracking, no!" A better cargument would be, what if the paint was flaking off around the door handles and a car salesmen yelled at you on a podcast to just keep buying cars, don't worry about it.
At one point the guest says "no else cares about that little ding but you." Here's the thing: I pay for my games, so my opinion is the one that matters. You know who else cares? Every guy I might ever sell it to.
Oooh good, I am just glad you guys aren't pissed off at me! My opinion on the clear coats was very general though, as I have no clue what Mirco or any other outside vendor uses for clear coats. My opinion on the coatings are 100% based on the issues everyone here is experiencing. It IS a product failure! No doubts about it. Whoever is mixing these clears is VERY inconsistent with the batches (Or they are using just junk products). I just hope that Stern and JJP spend some much needed resources and do the clear coats in house. That way they can control what clears they want to use, and they can test them as much or as little as they want before just slapping them on play-fields. Just like they would do with Mechs... I assume (like we all do) testing is done to exhaustion before customers receive their games.
Hope I helped shed a little light on the industry... good luck out there guys. Sorry again this is happening to you. It sucks!
