    Awesome! I won't win but maybe I'll get lucky bag a participation prize. It'll be a good reason to play PvZ some more too. Hooray for tournaments!

    I totally won't get anywhere near the winners but this will give me a good reason to play it & at least try. With the online being so dead I'm losing interest, I sit for hours switching back & forth from Vita/Ps3 to Xbox trying to find a match.

    Barb,

    Is the Zen Pinball 2 PS Vita Monsters Bundle (The Paranormal, Sorcerer’s Lair and Plants vs. Zombies) also coming to the EU? If so, what's the price? Plus discount?

    It would have been nice if the multiplier bug was fixed before the tournament but I guess its a case of take it or leave it

    Oh goody. Tournaments usually bring out the best in me. I feel my pinballing skills have improved since the last tournament so if I get into the top 1%, I'll be extremely satisfied.

    Tournaments do count towards Pro Score, don't they?

    If they stick to the MARVEL Pinball rules your best result will be added to your score.

    Another question:

    Can you start a game now, save it and finish it during the tournament? Would that count for the tournament?

    Can someone tell me what this bug is? Ive done a search, cant find it. Ive asked about it in the zp2 bug thread, no reply. Sat nite i was playing this table, and it seemed like no matter how many times i hit the bumpers,the multipliers would not advance. I even tried to just focus on advancing them, repeatedly hitting the bumpers, nothing. The whole night, for at least 4 hours, they only advanced for me in 2, maybe 3 games. Is this a common occurence for anyone else?

    Also, in the guide for this table, during zomboss final mission, sttc states you can hit the ice ball/fire ball with the same type of pinball(ice or fire) & itlll give you the right ball automaticaly instead of using the flowerpot sinkhole. First time i got to zomboss, i tried this, and it took 4-5 hits to switch the ball type. Second time i got to him, ball type changed on first hit of zomboss's ball, everytime. Is this supposed to be first hit change ball, or is it just random how many times you need to hit Dr. Z's balls (lol) to change your ball? (hope you guys can follow that!)

    Funny you mention that, one of mine likes to perch on the tv stand ledge and swat the ball when it comes down the in/out lanes.

    currently in 15 place , looks like long games of grinding to make it higher ,


    i think the bug is when you keep a ball in play during multiball lose one but it still counts as a ball loss , really fustrating , i was like WAARGHH

    So, no pro score for tournaments?

    If that's something which can easily be implemented in a future patch, you should consider to add tournaments to the pro score. It would encourage / motivate all of us poor souls which cannot win anyways to shoot for good scores during a tournament.

    That's happened to me as well. It was early on in my game though so it wasn't that frustrating.

    Not happy with my own performance at the moment. Currently at the top 7-8%, while I average 1-2% normally. It really is a test of endurance, more than any other table. That left ramp really is a killer if you don't make the shot. The most annoying aspect is that I beat the wizard mode for the first time, but badly fluffed the multiball mode straight after, partly because I wasn't expecting it.

    Must try harder!

    I experienced the game breaking one myself (mail box one). I played a second game and got 300 million and called it a day. I'm officially done with this table. It's way too grinding centric for me (like V12) and it gets dull rather quickly.

    Same here. I might have another go, but I really won't be trying that hard, considering how cheap/boring/annoying, and a grind this table is, it really gets on my nerves unlike any other table.

    I agree with you guys. I've played one tournament game so far, got 208 million, and haven't played it again. I just get bored with it so quickly and the ease of starting multiball and playing half of the game in that mode just doesn't feel right. I had the same issue with the Ghost Rider table. I hope I don't sound too negative. The table seems like it was designed with a younger audience in mind and most of us on here aren't that audience.

    to increase jackpots shoot the orbits then wait for a yellow star to appear and shoot that lane .

    for the bug best way to avoid it is to start zomboss without any balls locked in the mailbox , if you do start a multiball against zomboss don't lose any balls as that will result as a ball lost even if you lose 1

    I played Earth Defense last week and got 7 billion for the PSnation tourney and had a blast (took about 3 hours), yet I can't last longer than 5 minutes on this table without feeling bored. I praise Tenor for getting over 1 billion on this table.

    they did capture PvZ perfectly in terms of models, art, sound and music but it does feel easy tho each game i can get at least 200mill without trying too hard and 3 out of the four games i played i almost beat zomboss just needed hit him one last time ill get him soon enough it is a good change from some of the harder tables tho but dang that mailbox & zomboss multiball bugs are frustrating.

    congratulations on that Earth Defense score again Snakeman don't know if ill ever get that close but i'll certainly try

    AHHH. I saw the star light in a lane, but I didn't know what it was for. How much does it increase the jackpot base by each time?

    I also lost a few balls during zomboss because of the multiball glitch. And I wasn't logged in when I finished my game and my score didnt register. 700 something mill I think. Nothing to write home about. Lost 4 balls in last 5 minutes

    Heh I do like the theme but yeah this table is nothing but multiball after multiball. I tried to do missions mostly but even during the missions you can get mail multiball and that leads to the boring play because you can easily get the ball saves and kick-backs by shooting the orbits and that's what you want to increase your jackpots in the first place. Interestingly enough my game was a little more than 2 hrs or so. If it wasn't for the mulitball glitch/bug or whatever I would have had another ball to work with.

    It might have changed but I was 3rd place for tourney I don't think it will hold though for top 3 and the code for Civil War. Kudos to those that stick with it and get over a billion. I don't think I will try to best my score unless something drastic happens in the PSNation league.

    Not sure how that could work, though.

    In the 360 version, your Pro Score was a straight 1 point per million, so it was easy to just consider "tournament" as a separate high score, and add points appropriately from your highest score in any tournament.

    But when it's based off of a sliding scale of 0-1000 points per table based off of rank, it wouldn't work. You can't have a separate pro score bonus for EACH tournament without annoying the veterans who miss a tourney, and if it "resets" with each new tournament it serves no point.

    It's pretty random though I think. At least before any Multiball I did notice the DMD say something like more coin, Sun, Jackpot value etc.

    Thumbs down No more for me.

    I think I've played my last game on this table. I've now beaten Zomboss twice now. The first time I wasted the Sing Along Multiball that followed partly because I wasn't expecting it. The second time I had a good long Wizard Mode session and posted a score for provisional 34th. That's good enough for me.

    I really don't like this table. Not because of the ease of winning extra balls and reaching the You Have Mail Multiball, but the concept just doesn't make sense. Sure, make a table on zombies, but why plants and zombies? It just doesn't make sense! Then there are the game modes: Most, with the possible exception of Going Nuts, is a bit boring. The soundtrack is very poor as well.

    Yes! Plants vs Zombies is a strategy game made by Popcap. The actual game is also available on the PSN for $15.

    I was wondering when someone would say this! This table is based on PopCap's hugely popular game, you can get more details here: http://www.popcap.com/games/plants-vs-zombies/home

    I think you can pick up the game for $0.99 right now on iOS (or at least you could last week, I saw an ad for a PvZ sale). It's a funky little tower defense game that is pretty addictive.

    Perhaps I've not explained myself properly. I know it's based off a game - I've played it, and found that dull and boring also. I'm not a huge fan of tower defence games anyway, but PvsZ was one of the worst I've played in my opinion, and I've played a lot of Tower Defence games.

    As a table, it just doesn't cut it like the rest of what Zen has created for the reasons I described above. I particularly cited the concept as poor but that also extends to the concept of the original game as well.

    But of course it is my opinion. Feel free to shout at me.

    Default Tournament Bonus Bug?

    I just played a game in the PvZ Tournament - Scored 176M. It gave me a tournament bonus of 176 as expected. However, when calculating my Super Score, my total Tournament Bonus did not include bonuses from two previous tournaments (Secrets of the Deep and BioLab). Is this a bug? Anyone else experience this?

    The tournament bonus is the highest score you have achieved in any one tournament. You only get it once, not one for every tournament. Also, what system are you playing on? The Zen Pinball 2 forum is for PS3 players.

    Thank you for clarifying! Makes sense now. And apologies - I am playing on XBOX 360, so should have posted in the Pinball FX2 - XBOX 360 thread (I'm new to these forums and didn't look closely at the thread titles...). Your reply applies to PS3 as well, so hope some others here might find the info of value.

    Yes! There's a whole forum dedicated to the 360 version and a thread on the same tournament there as well.

    No it doesn't! Zen Pinball 2 has a different scoring system, where it's called the Pro Score (from leader board rankings) and tournaments don't count towards it.

    Decided to have one more go tonight, ended with 499m, not even topping my previous high score...Also ran into the dreaded multiball bug during Dr.Zomboss, which is completely ridiculous

    The base jackpot gets reset, I believe after you engage in a multiball

    haha worst after each jackpot got , so from now what i do is when get to multiball i shoot anywhere , it augments the jackpot and eventually it will hit the flashing lane

    then it resets to 200000

    OMG!!! you got to be kidding !!! It makes no sense to grow it then, simply because getting 200K jackpots is probably more effective than trying to grow it, when you throw in the "plenty money" and such that you get in the mix of trying to grow the base. This is truly a downer for me...

    I am scared to jinks myself here, but I saved at 900M or so last night, 2nd or 3rd ball. No point in doing missions anymore since the zombies have all the head gear so the wizard bonus is pretty much useless since they block all the million-point lanes. Going to be all multiball now until the end... so mundane ....

    That post near the left (MAIL) ramp sure is a killer when it sends the ball back SDTM so fast you can't react...

    Yeah that post can be frustrating if you don't aim your shots. Even Random shots can mess you up.

    2nd or 3rd not including extra balls? That's impressive. I'll give it one more shot today to try and get top 3. I think I'm 5th or 6th now last time I checked.

    Maybe Zeb can give all the players that broke the billionaires club the code for Civil War? Well Barbie what do you think? Even if I'm bit top 3, I will buy Civil War Day one. Love Zen pinball.

    Today is the last day, but I'm not sure when it will go down, so you can play/enter until the tournament icon is gone.

    It's a good thing it's over because I was only 1 billion off your score and I think after another 3 years I might have gotten even closer!
