    I'm okay with this. 1 month per table is a hectic schedule and I'm surprised they've kept it up as long as they have.

    Plus you have to remember SPA will probably get a bit more support now too, just wonder how many tables we will see a year in TPA? Table every 2-4 months???

    Perfectly fine with me. A table per month was way too ambitious anyway. Having them taking the Zen Studios route is a much more feasible business route.

    I'm going to assume you meant "ambitious." If so, yes, I agree.

    I'll gladly pay ten bucks per individual table (less for an EM), more if it has a license. Then I can skip out on the mediocre Gottliebs that arrive, though I'll risk missing out on a pleasant surprise, like Big Hurt and Wipe Out have been.

    I wonder if the meant that they won't release every month because of the month off that they'll use to bug-fix.....Which has already happened before S7 started. I'm guessing we'll get consecutive monthly releases to complete a season, then a month will be skipped .

    If you listen later in the stream, someone asks if they will release a new table as often as every other month and they reply that they probably won't, but there could be updates such as bug fixes and new features that often.

    Also, unless I misunderstood them towards the end of the stream, (around the 45 minute mark) they say it's not the end of seasons, just their monthly schedule.

    No that’s not what they said. I got an Emil three months ago telling me this was the last season. I wrote an email and asked and that’s what they said back then. I posted it but know one believed it.

    Personally, I think this is a great decision. I started buying season passes with Season 6, and it's clear that the team is spread way too thin to put out a new table on every platform every month without introducing new bugs, and the fixes are hard to squeeze in with the next monthly release breathing down their necks.

    I really hope Farsight can make this work business-wise. I'm sure it is possible, if they were to put in online play, some of the features in FX3, and market the product well, they certainly should be able to.

    I would be thrilled to get more bug fix updates and re-tunings, getting SPA stabilized, and hopefully 3 or 4 excellent table releases per year.

    It would make sense for them to bundle tables into a season after the next 10 table packs. So I'd imagine there will be a "Season 8" but it won't be "Season 8" up-front for purchase. At least, I'd like to think that's what they'll be doing; it makes sense from a certain point of view.

    How about a "Mega Season Pass" that gets you every table for an even better discount than a single-season pass? There might be some takers. They could probably do that easily enough on Steam and Android; not sure about iOS and other platforms.

    I'd like there to be a way that allows me to automatically get every new table that hits Steam without having to go in an make a purchase. Can Steam handle a "subscription"-type thing?

    Ich hope they focus on bug fixes, tuning and VR now. Ball Rotation would be awesome. If they put a lot of work into tables, they could easily launch a remastered version for some bucks.

    A remastered version! I have $300 invested in this already for my iPad. They need to fix all the problems with this version.

    Thanks, about 90% of that table was me. I redid a lot of the textures we always use.
