    Bang Backs (Death Saves) are still not easy to pull off on some of the tables (I'm looking at you V12).
    Haha, saw you on the Board there Mr Shogun! The trick to the bang back here is to nudge in the right direction, but I know what you mean. I'm stuck on 6th place since yesterday, played all day and wasn't able to better my score OR to complete the upgrade-trophy. I make 50mio on the the first ball consistenly but then it's like some switch is turned - and I get 2 balls drained in like 1 minute, my usual strategies just seem to stop working at this point (especially the death save). Very frustrating. I got f'ed like this 3 times in a row with only 1 ball left to lock in the upgrade hole for the the upgrade-trophy.
    I still feel that I have a realistic shot at 1st though - as long as nobody tops the 250mio currently up there (On zp1 my record was 270mio). Well it's only out a week now, if I remember right the top score on zp1 was something in the 20billion range, so better be quick if I want to strike that (Being 1st on a Zen table) from my bucketlist

      Yeah, it seems like gravity stops existing at this point, since the ball "creeps" up the flipper, and doesn't seem to deccelerate due to gravity as it should...

        I got the upgrade trophy on Sunday. I'm not focusing on scores at the moment. I'm currently trying to get all of the trophies (only 5 more to go).

        I did the tire upgrade and I just did the following pattern.

        1.) Shoot the ball up the left ramp.
        2.) Nudge pass the ball to the right flipper.
        3.) Repeat 1 and 2, until you hear "watch out" (final tilt warning).
        4.) Hold ball with the flipper, until I see the "status report" flashing on the DMD (tilt warnings reset by that time).
        5.) Repeat the above until the upgrade is available.

        It was a mundane process, but I got the trophy on my third attempt.

          You may be able to avoid the warnings by using a lighter nudge

            I did that for the first game and it just didn't work for me. I got a couple of ball drains and I had to start all over again.

            I went with the way that was most comfortable for me and got the job done.

              I used to love this table. But i had some control over this table. The way i look at it is if its not broke dont freaking fix it. What makes a table fun is being able to get the cool things a table offers. I used to be able to hold the ball and go back and fourth on ramp combos getting a extra ball. Now that is completely broken. It would be one thing if it was a bit harder but its almost impossible. I load this table up everyday now that i dl zp2 i even deleted the old apps thinking theres no need for them now this answers everything all my tables one game and im thinking the new v12 will grow on me but its not. I dont like the table anymore and i refuse to load it up. Crank shaft is impossible getting combos is impossible table is broken in my opinion it was designed with the original physics so leave it the hell alone. I realised the way i played the table before i couldnt do so i tried new ways to score points realizing that the new way i could score wasnt even fun so why play the table. Please fix this or patch it. Make the right combo ramp bigger and easier to hit if were not allowed to grab the ball and make it so the ball travels a bit faster around the ramps expecially on the left side. Fix the crank shaft it sucks now.
