  • Personal Goal - 100m on every table=Doable?

    I set myself a personal goal of getting over 100m on every table and I Finally Did It!. I am no Pinball Savant but I am decent. I am happy if I break top 200 overall on any table. So, breaking it down (I guess it is more of a how balanced is the scoring thread?) Wizard Reached = * Wizard Beaten = ** All Achievements Acquired = AAA

    1. Pasha - (126m) Done, 100m would be top 920 ** AAA
    2. Blade - (143m) Done, need to be in top 180. *
    3. Excalibur - (119m) - Done, Top 200 Needed. AAA
    4. Bio Lab - (130m) - Done. Top 750 score range. *
    5. Rome - (219m) -Done. 100m would be top 450.
    6. Wolverine - (235m) Done, Top 600 score needed. ** AAA
    7. Spider-man - (2.61B) Done, Top 3800 score needed. (Note- 1 Billion puts you roughly in the top 100) ** AAA
    8. Nightmare Mansion (422m) - Done, Top 315 needed. ** AAA
    9. Earth Defense -(178m) Done, Top 760 needed. AAA
    10. Secrets of the Deep - (267m) Done, Top 750 needed. AAA
    11. Ironman - (127m) Done, Top 40 overall score. *
    12. Buccaneer - (154m) Done, Top 30 score needed. ** AAA
    13. Street Fighter II Turbo (144m) -Done. Top 275 score needed. AAA
    14. Agents - (107m) Done, Top 129 Score needed. ** AAA
    15. Speed Machine - (104m) Done, Top 70 score needed. ** AAA
    16. Extreme - (102m) Done, Top 22 score needed and a desire to play this table. ** (Extreme has NO Wizard Mode) AAA
    17. Rocky & Bullwinkle (157m) - Done, Top 110 score needed * AAA
    18. Mars - (711m) Done, Top 3,200 score needed. ** AAA
    19. Fantastic Four (2.3b) - Done, Top 1500 score needed. ** AAA
    20. Captain America (306m) - Done, Top 570 score needed. ** AAA
    21. Ms. Splosion Man (413m) - Done, Top 9000 needed ** AAA
    22. Sorcerer's Lair (383m) Done, Too 3200 needed ** AAA
    23. Paranormal (173m) Done, Top 410 needed AAA
    24. Epic Quest (3.28b), Done, Top 4000 needed ** AAA
    25. X-men (115m), Done, Top 2600 Needed A
    26. Moon Knight (486m) Top 2000 Needed ** AAA
    28. Ghost Rider (236m) Top 2000 Needed * AA
    29. Thor (151m) Top 2000 Needed * AA
    30. World War Hulk (392m) Top 190 Needed ** AAA
    31. Infinity Gauntlet (137m) Top 120 Needed * AAA
    32. Avengers (131m) Top 410 Needed
    33. Fear Itself (154m) Top 700 Needed
    34. Plants Vs. Zombies (544m) Top 4500 Needed ** AAA
    35. Civil War (547m) Top ??? Needed

    Hardest to reach 100m = Extreme (Followed closely by Speed Machine and Buccaneer, showing the score adjustments on these were a bit too tight)
    Easiest - Spiderman

    Also worth noting is that both Secrets and Biolab have much better scores logged due to the Tourney. Note that Zen- People play them much more for a tourney.

    Edit - Threw in some scores

    I want to accomplish this as well... Just need to finish up a few of the classic tables. Extreme is going to be the most painful. I can hit shots on that one but still can't manage to break 20 mil on it. It is by far the lowest scoring table. I assume if I knew the rule set a little better and did missions and competitions my score would rise.

    I have a good grasp of the rules on all the new tables and a few of the classics. Ones I don't have completely figured out yet are Extreme, Agents, Speed Machine, Excalibur, Nightmare Mansion, and Buccaneer.

    I would say definitely doable... with a killer game on Extreme.

    I wouldn't worry about breaking 100 mil on Blade, once you get the missions down and get to the wizard mode you can easily earn 250+ million during it. Iron Man is another tough one although I have already gotten 136 mil or something like that. Good enough for 11th on the LB. During that game I got to Ultimo twice and failed miserably both times, but still put up an awesome score doing missions. That was without any extra balls because it was played before the friendly bumper update. Might try to improve on it now that the bumpers are a little more bumpy

      I dunno if aiming for 100m is the right way to go, but maybe shooting for top 100 would be a better idea.

      I have 5 tables over 100m

      193m Secrets of the Deep
      102m Bioloab
      820m Pasha
      400m Wolverine
      239m Spider-Man

      My worst score is on Extreme which is still under 10m. My next closest to 100m is Blade on 85m so I may get that one next. I'm also aiming to get 1bn+ on Pasha which I'm confident I can do.

      The tables I think I should get over 100m on with a little effort on are Rocky & Bullwinkle, Earth Defense, Excalibur, Street Fighter II, Iron Man and Rome. The others, Speed Machine, Extreme, Agents, Buccaneer and Nightmare Mansion may be a struggle.

        Hey, that is my first goal as well, but only for the tables that I feel is worth playing. Will also be using Rapiers key: Wizard Reached = * Wizard Beaten = ** All Achievements Acquired = AAA


        Wolverine - Done ** AAA
        Spiderman - Done ** AAA
        Blade - Done ** AAA
        Biolab - Done ** AAA
        Secrets of the Deep - Done ** AAA
        Pasha - Done ** AAA
        Rome - Done ** AAA
        Earth Defence - Done AAA
        Excalibur - Done AAA
        Mars - Done ** AAA
        Fantastic 4 - Done ** AAA
        Captain America - Done ** AAA
        Ironman - Finally DONE!!!!!!! ** AAA. My original score that I was stuck on was 99 850 000!!!! - I kid you not. With that game I celebrated too soon and in a moment of premature e... jubilation the ball happened to slip through the flippers.... it took me almost 5 months to finally better it.
        Street Fighter II - Done * AAA
        Nightmare Mansion - Done ** AAA
        Ms. Splosion Man - Done ** AAA

        The table that took the most effort for me to get to 100 million (apart from evil Ironman!!!) was Rome, it was also the first one where I was able to rise to the occasion and I believe that all the effort put into it made me a much better player (but I will never be as good as I would like to be e.g. Blue).

            One of my mates got a score of 520M on this table and he was only playing for 6-7mins. Something to do with multipliers, or being blessed, and completing Romulus mulitball (Only once though). How did he get that score? Glitch or luck or what?

              Pick a table, choose leaderboards (You must be connected to Xbox Live to get the global leaderboards). You can use the LB/RB to scroll through all-time and weekly leaderboards for that table.

                Sure he wasn't just finishing a game he had saved? Even with romulus this seems pretty close to impossible. The EOB's arent that big in Rome. The only other MB (other then Wizard mode) takes awhile to start...

                Also I think this goal is possible for all the Fx2 tables for sure. Iron man and excalubar would be the toughest. Blade isnt so bad once you get the hang of it, the EOB's are sickness (check out H.S's guide). I think I have 140-170M on that table, no wizard mode yet (oh so close though!). As for FX1 the scores are nerfed, bigtime. Agents isnt so bad but seriously just try to break top 300 or something, on fx1 I had 200M + on bucceneer and 500M+ on Speed machine, I don't play them anymore but the few times I did I couldnt break 50M. Go figure.

                  1. Pasha - Done, 100m would be top 800
                  2. Blade - Going to be hard, need to be in top 150 overall.
                  3. Excalibur - Need to be in the top 150 but doable with repeat missions granting up to 20m (Joust-Intermediate)
                  4. Bio Lab - Very Doable, I have not touched this since the tourney and I sit at 91m. Top 750 score range.
                  5. Rome - Doable, Big payoffs for missions, 100m would be top 425.
                  6. Wolverine - Done, Top 500 score needed.
                  7. Spider-man - Done, Top 3500 score needed.
                  8. Nightmare Mansion - Done, Top 300 needed.
                  9. Earth Defense - Done, Top 500 needed.
                  10. Secrets of the Deep - Doable, Top 750 needed.
                  11. Ironman - requires a top 40 overall score. Should be possible if you reach and even lose to Ultimo twice. Hard.
                  12. Buccaneer - Done, Top 25(!) score needed.
                  13. Street Fighter II Turbo - Hard freaking table, need to do the fights to accomplish this. Top 250 score needed. So, doable if I can make myself play this table right.
                  14. Agents - Doable, Top 125 Score needed.
                  15. Speed Machine - Very Hard, Top 50 score needed. I reached wizard twice and still only got 50m.
                  16. Extreme - Yea, right. Top 15 score needed and a desire to play this table.
                  17. Rocky & Bullwinkle - Doable, Top 65 score needed but that is a bit off do to the recent reset.

                  Note to Zen - Don't touch Spiderman, no matter that this little breakdown shows, I like the way it is now.
                  Hardest to reach 100m = Extreme (Followed closely by Speed Machine and Buccaneer, showing the score adjustments on these were a bit too tight)
                  Easiest - Spiderman

                  Definitely doable. :-p

                    I'm nowhere near as good as some of you guys, but I have to say, reading your bolded statement, makes me feel good about posting 114M today. It's #2 for the week and #124 overall. Was a helluva round. Took down the castle with the crossbow, did the damsel in distress video mode twice, took down the Sir Kay, King Arthur, and Sir Lancelot tales, completed the beginner and intermediate Jousts, completed Questing the Beast twice. Amazing note... I had 36M after 2 balls, and never did achieve an extra one. I should have gotten a lot higher. I had the extra ball lit, and had the battering ram on the doorstep of the castle when I accidentally tilted doing an excessive number of flipper passes.

                      its doable and would be super impressive

                      wow i was just telling a friend of mine that 100 million on ANY table is incredible. the benchmark of a spectacular score. of course there are a few exceptions(cough-Spiderman.) but 100 million on EVERY table is quite a commendable goal and would be an achievement to proudly hang your favorite(Wizard) hat on... good luck!

                      Ironman & Rome would give you the most... pause, if u will, i would think. then again there's ALL of those pesky original tables(Extreme.) wow good luck. LOTS of luck haha...

                        And for the record, I can't wait until you have 100M on every table except Extreme. Just knowing you'd have to put serious time into that POS would make me smile for weeks.

                            A few freakish scores at the top (60 Billion, 57 Billion) then it drops to a more 'reasonable' scores from 15 billion and the top 10 is rounded out by none other than our own Heathensauce with 4.3 billion.

                            Edit - That was just the scores for Spiderman, I misread the post.

                              Umm I guess it depends on your friend list, 100M is Par on all the fx2 tables, like to be in the top 5 w/ my list. If I dont break 100M I feel like I did bad (baring iron man and excalubar) Although my iron man score is 4rth I think at 50M+.

                              UranusisBroken - Nice job, I think I've completed just about every mission on that table but never in one game. TBH I dont play it that much anymore, but I remember draining alot off of the Arthur mission from near misses on those combo shots.
