    Same here. I have experienced the Hawkeye ramp draining my ball down the middle (like Blade Citadel), but that's about it.

That doesn't sound like a lot but keep in mind you score 4 times as many points when you use the appropriate Super Hero ball to complete shots. So you can routinely hits shots on this table for 20 million points later in a game after reaching the jackpot max.
      Wait...... does that count during the modes themselves. Maybe I'm not understanding this. I know I try to do the repair mission with CA and IM. Shooting up the CA ramp with IM which nets at least 4m. I've seen 6m with the CA but not sure what I did to get it. Ramp bonus for using CA? I might be that I haven't reached Wizard mode yet (usually 1 shy) so the bonuses might click in then.

        I just tested it. My Mission Bonus value was 1 million. That's what it starts at. I started the Repair Engines mission and when I hit the Captain America ramp with his ball it was 4 million points. With other balls it was 1 million points. That's obviously a 4x increase. I'm not 100% sure that the Mission Bonus value caps at 5 million but I am pretty sure. I definitely remember getting 20 million points during Thor Vs Loki for each time I threw Mjölnir at Loki. This was later in the game so my Mission Bonus value would have been maxed most likely.

          "The Legend Continues" achievement

          SttC helped me get the "bangback" achievement on Avengers a little bit ago. He told me what worked for him and it worked for me as well so I wanted to share it with anyone else who's having trouble:

          Try setting your view to view 6. It zooms out the table so you can see everything including beneath the flippers. Whichever outlane it goes down, hold that flipper up and nudge the table upwards just as the ball gets to the top of the flipper (where the flipper connects to the table). It should nudge the ball back up onto the opposite flipper and pop your achievement.
          Wizard Modes Completed: Buccaneer (1-6-11) SotD (1-20-11) Agents (1-24-11) Biolab (3-31-11) MSM (10-8-11) SL (10-12-11)
          Paranormal (10-26-11) S-M (11-13-11) MK (12-15-11) X-Men (12-19-11) GR (1-15-12) CA (1-17-12) EQ (2-16-12) Rome (3-11-12)
          Pasha (3-12-12) NM (3-28-12) Extreme (5-16-12) Thor (5-22-12) SM (5-26-12) WWH (6-21-12) FF (6-22-12) Blade (6-23-12)
          IG (6-24-12) PvZ (1-7-13) ESB (2-27-13) CivilWar (6-22-13) BF (7-2-13)

            OK, starting to get the hang of this table. Just cleared 100M and I'm not trying, just testing out things.

            SKILLSHOT

            For the right, I have it so the 4th coil is just showing and then let go. I don't think there is a natural shot for the middle, do what I just said for the right and just give it a lil nudge at its apex. Left hole is just a bit back from full, 3rd coil showing.

            ORDER
            Here's my current order. Hawkeye to get the kickbacks going and increase mission bonus up widow's ramp (be careful!*). Then lock him into the Quinjet. Get Widow out and get more mission bonus from her ramp*. Start setting her mission up or go for the Quinjet.

            * this ramp does make you paranoid. You can activate caps ramp a few times for a ball save and then do it a few times

            If Quinjet breaks, Cap,Thor or Hulk lanes get you the setup to the IM ramp. With widow ball, complete her Interrogation mission. Max out her bonus from her ramp as much as your nerves can stomach (sooner or later, IT WILL DRAIN) and then change up. If you get near a Hulk/Thor completion, change into one of them. I go Hulk and then complete his mission afterwards.

            tbc...

            I'm still working out which missions score the most, and where the extra balls come from??????? and how do multipliers increase??? anyone??

                I Don't think it's a glitch . It happens to me several times on the PS3. For some reason if you shoot for that ramp a bunch of times trying to increase you jackpots it drains and doesn't pass the gate. the same shot same strength.

                Finally got to wizard mode for the trophy. It took me some time for some reason. I just miss it by 1 or 2 by the end of of ball 3.


                Anyone know how many times you need to go up the Captain America Ramp in order to activate ball save? I have a better luck shooting a backhand shot from the right flipper.

                  If you use the Cap ball, you will notice that there is a count, when you do combo shots. It starts at 8 and counts down. If you manage to get to 0, you should be able to pick up an extra ball from the SHIELD reward hole.

                  I have the same approach as you regarding Hawkeye and the kickbacks, but I try to squeeze in Cap for the extra ball. You need the Hawkeye ramp for the combos, so if you're at the point where you can already lock balls in the Qunijet, getting the extra ball is tougher.

                    Multpliers are from the Iron Man ramp/loop. I'm not sure how many times you need to do it to get it but with Iron Man it clicks much more quickly.

                    For me I try using IM or CA at the start. Lighting up Ball save is much easier with CA and much of the Repair Ship mission requires you to hit the CA lane for the second shot.

                    Then I try to change heroes in that sink hole shot. Change to Hawk and do my best to look him up while shooting the BW lane for jackpot increase. Lock in the quinjet and get BW do her missions and in some cases shooting at the spinner/Thor loop and Hulk bumpers help get to Hulk/Thor mission much faster. Lock BW up and either use Thor or Hulk to finish the last missions.

                    It's amazing how much your score sky rockets after Assembling the team. I wen from 140 to 349 with just the wizard mode. After that jackpot scores rise real quick.

                      Just wanted to share that on my second play of the table, I got to #12 on the leaderboards.

                      Not boasting, cause I know it wont last long! Perhaps this is an easy scoring table like Ms Splosion Man? Or I was just lucky. Cause normally, I cant get a good score to save myself!

                      Really enjoying this table. Especially the way there is a different ball for each Super Hero. Awesome!

                        Was still trying to figure things out and before I knew it I was at the Wizard mode and my score just shot up to 800mil. Freaked out a little bit and botched the rest of the game so did not make a Billion. Also lost the ball twice inexplicably when shooting up the left black widow ramp... don't know what is going on there but there must be something wrong. Quite a fun table and it will be interesting to see what the top scores are eventually going to end up being. Like the table but yet again it doesn't have the complexity that Fear Iself has so must still rate that higher than this. So with out having really played Infinity Gauntlet (which seems to have a bit of a learning curve) I would rate Fear Itself 1, Avengers 2nd and Hulk 3rd out of the three I have played.

                        Strategy is key to this table it seems and if somebody can unlock the right sequence of doing things they will be able to put up a major score in a very short time. Jackpots and skillshot keep on building but I forgot to see if it is per ball or per game. The multipliers increased by shooting the top-flipper orbit a couple of times... got it up to 10x only one time. Also got some extra balls but not 100% sure what I did (except for the Captain America ramp one and the Wizard mode one... both explained in the rule sheet).

                          .... or am I really this bad?

                          It tok me five games to get over 5M... yes 5M on this table. Don't know what my problem is... it takes me forever to start missions and then I don't complete them. I like the dark look of this table, and I'm not blaming table design... I just wanted to pipe up and mention that this table isn't as "easy to score on" as you folx are letting on. For perspective I got Fear Itself and Infinity Gauntlet in the top 50 (on day one) on the boards (still haven't had time to really get down on WWHulk), and I still suck donkeys on this table.
                          Thanks to everyone who posts on here explaining how to get real scores, the old trial&error method I normally use isn't working for me on this table at all.

                            Don't worry, you are not alone. I was embarrassed to put my initials into my local high score the first few games I "completed" on this table. I guess it really follows the "It takes a team" theme to extremes and rewards you for using the right ball/person for the right mission.

                              I got a quick question. Have either of you found that your achievements for the new tables are barely registering? Let me explain. I got both the WWH and Infinity Gauntlet cheevos fairly early before anyone on my friends list. This is was Wednesday morning. Now yesterday night I got the "bang back" cheevo for The Avengers and that one is the only one that shows. All I have left is the Fear Itself one, but the others aren't showing. I just wanted to know if I was the only one experiencing this.

                                Yeah still a lot on this table I don't seem to be getting. Hulk ball seems to net the most points for me as bumpers and slingshots score is greatly increased also seems to be the easiest to start his own mode with (tracking down the duplicates) each duplicate hit nets about 4.5 mil.

                                Still lost as to what the ramps do apart from swapping the game mode under Loki. (Tho hitting Cap ramp with Cap bqll seems to start ball saver. Also started Hulk vs Loki and didn't seem to get anywhere despite hitting the flashing ramps.

                                Multiplied seems to be connected to the short orbit just left of the bumpers. I've managed to swing the ball around it about three times in a row (points value increases every time) I think that every orbit past the first adds 1 to the multiplied.

                                @Rafie. All my achievements have registered on my game first time. Even the Avengers Cap DeathSave/ Bang Back popped first time too and I know others have had trouble with it...
