    Does everyone now see why I think Masters of the Force blows? The scores seemed to indicate such...

    1. ThaShizzel420 63 million
    2. shutyertrap 41 million
    3. Henrikf 36 million
    4. Mayerinator50 19 million
    5. zmcvay 8 million

    Captain Marvel comes to theaters this week, so let's do a tie-in! We've already done Champions which features her front a center, but it's some weird teen version. Instead we'll play A-Force which is mostly about Black Widow, but at least has an image of Captain Marvel on it that matches the movie. Classic play, no upgrades, 5 attempts.
    I'm just sayin'

    Don't like Masters of the Force? I think it's one of the better tables in FX3. Good sound and at least the Illusion Multiball is fun to play. Just my opinion...

    I hate all the shots on the left side of the table. Visually the table on a whole is hard for me to determine what is elevated and what isn't (on quick glance) and certain shots just seem unusually difficult. It reminds me a lot of how I had problems with Plants vs Zombies until I played the thing in 3D. In general I just don't find it to be an inviting table.

    Yes, the left side of the table has a strange layout. Unfortunaly a lot of the Zen tables have this issue. Unrealistic ramps and lanes and often too much elements on the playfield. Williams is still unbeaten in table physics, design and geometric layout.

    Yeah, I don't nearly have a grasp on A-Force like I do on Champions:

    1. AcaDude 277 million
    2. zmcvay 263 million
    3. Klausinator 250 million
    4. jwillan 126 million
    5. XAF//SMerrell 115 million

    Just to be mean, nasty, and spiteful, this week's table is Party Zone with tournament settings and only one attempt. I wanted it to be the hard physics with only 1 ball and 1 attempt, but it wouldn't let me. *sad trombone*

    Noticed 'shutyertraps' name pop up in my PINBALL FX3 tournaments feed and had a go on the latest tournament for PARTY ZONE. I went to try again and hadn't realised it was only 1 ball, 1 attempt on tournament settings (which I've barely touched). Talk about hardcore, lol! Hopefully, you'll be more forgiving in future?
    Let's play pinball together:

    Yes, normally I’m not that mean and will give 3 or 5 attempts. Sometimes though I like to test people’s pinball metal.

    I came up with a plan of how to get 10M+ (had about 5 practice attempts first and got nearly 20M on one of them) on it just from using skill shots. Unfortunately however, when you get a skill shot it turns ball save off and I had 1 ball drain in 5secs and another in 10secs, then missed skill shot on 3rd ball (which cost 3M) so not a great score (although its less terrible than some others) - makes a massive difference from if ball save stayed active.

    The ball save turns off at a set points value, which you always cross if you make a skill shot. Therefore it's safer to full plunge or better short plunge so the balls comes out of the Cosmic Cottage.

    Here's how the nastiness of that last tourney with Party Zone turned out...

    1. XAF//SMerrell 33 million
    2. Henrikf 13.6 million
    3. Trozy 13.1 million
    4. Xanija 12.9 million
    5. Kater9753 12.4 million

    Normally I don't hop onto the latest release for my tourneys, but I can't resist. We'll be playing Theatre of Magic in classic 3 ball. You get 5 attempts and 3 days to get them all in by. Let's see who dares play in enhanced mode with the threat of invisible balls being out there. Mwahahahaha
