    I'm proud of my 73 million score on Spider man.. But I get quickly humbled when I check the leader boards.. Even though I'm ranked around 4,000 out of 48,000, I still feel like a bad player looking at the top 100.. I really feel insignificant. How someone scores a billion is beyond me.. Would love to see it done on youtube.

      Check for hypno74 in youtube... Spiderman then is a tricky one. The bugger keeps memory of the best multipliers for each mission, the ones that are used in Chaos (the last mission but before starting multiball). So let's say, hypno74 upgraded JJ to 204 (that means he did 204 JJ missions in a single game). That gives him 64 million points per JJ orbit hit whenever Chaos is on. That level stays in every new game. He made 1 billion in about a minute and a half.

      But sure.. to level up to 204 it may take days. Obviously to me JJ is the hardest. I can't manage to hit the JJ ramp to start the mission.

      PS: Cap America is a great table. The rules are easy to understand, not hard to accomplish, still fun and diversified. And the ball doesn't bounce much like for example in Fantastic 4 (God if that drives me nut!!). I don't see what's to complain.

        Same here! Out of all of the missions, I have a hard time activating JJ's the most. That loop shot (not really a ramp) is a pain to hit for some reason. I almost always hit the Mary Jane's ramp instead.

        Personally, I'm better off completing the Doc Ock or Mystero missions 204 times.

            Like many, I'm loving this tabe so far. Very well put together a more 'forgiving' than some other tables. I managed a score of 101k the other day and it wasn't that difficult really as completing the various missions gives you some very high scores (17m for completing Death Ray for example).

            I've only managed one trophy so far but not far off getting the other two but I have a couple of questions:

            1) Has anybody managed to light up ASSAULT yet? Pretty difficult, I just wondered what it did when once you had all the letters.

            2) A similar thing, when your ball comes down the ramp towards the left of the table, it hits some bumper and lights up something like SOLDIER SYMBOL but I've not managed to get all of those either! Any idea what this gives you?

              It activates the Castle Zemo mini-game. It's the same one found in the Resistance mission.

              From my experience, each complete word lights up the Supply Drop target (near the Howlers Hole). There are four words in all and after that the bumpers are worth 10,000 points each, instead of the typical 7,000.

                I did some testing on the 360 version, and couldn't replicate this reliably. It would appear that, at least on the 360 version, the Supply Drop lights randomishly when targets/ramps are hit.

                  StOrMtRoOpErMx19 and I have just finished our trophy guide for this table. Well, it started out as a trophy guide, but we added most of the other info about the table as well. It's illustrated with a ton of videos, so be sure to check it out!

                              Fantastic 4 drives me crazy too, it's way to unpredictable where that ball is going to go. It's almost like super sling shots next to the outlanes.

                                Ditto! That's one table I rarely play after getting all of the trophies. That table is just too frustrating with its glitches and ping-pong ball physics.
