That's very true. Fixed.

For the individual tables there don't seem to be variants with EAB colors.

If there was demand for it I guess it wouldn't be too hard, could certainly benefit from the wider design at EAB.

I think they're fine, especially so late in the round. Wouldn't have noticed a difference anyway if Graham hadn't pointed it out.

It's fine unless you randomly boot up Fantasies or Illusions. The you realise the weight of the ball is completely improved...

NASG - Hi, welcome to the competition. Thanks for the video, I think this kind of rage is expected given the unfair game play. Sometimes there is no way to save a ball.

John - I notice the league table isnt in the first post, but I suppose as this is round 1, both game and league tables will be identical.

To be fair though, I never put the league table up either - as there was always a link to the results thread and to the live league ladder in the first post I felt it would get too cluttered if I added anything else.

Oh and welcome NASG

Yeah I kept Graham's format, but I agree it'd be handy to show the league table, too, so I'll add it.
EDIT: Since we never used it it's in Lemon colors. @mihcael: Could you create an EAB style-version of it, too?

Final day of Pinball Dreams!

Tomorrow we'll play F1 (unless there's some divine intervention).

I notice you try to 'save' the ball when it goes trough the sidelane, I also always try to do that, but that has succeeded like only once or so I was wondering if anyone is mastering this type of safe?

Don't think that's possible, the ball needs to have a certain speed. I have about a 5% success rate at getting it back into play.

I don't really have the scores to prove it, but it is indeed possible to do regularly
But it is harder on Dreams vs Fantasies because the ball sometimes picks up a strange opposing physic which cause nudge to have no effect at all!

That's a nice description I always tend to call this a 'bug' Really frustrating, sometimes you think you can 'catch' the ball with a flipper easily and then a mysterious opposing force causes the ball to fall down the drain...

Yeh it's very frustrating!! I've lost many balls trying to jump the ball from one side to the other, and nudge suddenly has no effect
