|@Red_Bool Accepted your friends request. I think it is only fair to point you to page 16 of this very thread. Where a competition was running to score the highest score on the Rome table. It was one of the happiest geek periods in my life.|

I have to say, I feel a little bad about this. The polite Red_Bool sent me a FR. Introduced himself as well. Just like you should do, when you send a person that you have never interacted with a friends request. Everything that he has done, points to the fact that Mr Red_Bool is that rare thing on the internet. A polite and well-adjusted individual. It's a shame that he sent a friends request to the most competitive gamer on EG. He had the audacity to post a decent score on one of the new Star Wars tables. I can't have that, can I now?
I look forward to your response, Red_Bool.
Most impressive vice.Destroyer.
However, not as impressive as the 117M I just got on the clone wars table.
The ball is back in your court Mr destroyer...
Don't worry. Things will change soon.
Downloading the Star Wars tables now. Time to upset a few scores on the leaderboard.

How much are the tables on XBL? I've bought the Ep V table on Android for £1.37 (or there abouts).

Winner of The Hot Air Award 2014
800 points for the set of three.
The star wars tables are 800 points for all 3.
Just got 61,997,899 on the Empire table.
Without the benefit of punctuation in the number, I thought for a second that @Red_Bool scored 4 billion points. Which would have meant that I had antagonised yet another pinball wizard into wiping the floor with me. (That's how Alipan got on my friends list).
Booting up Pinball NOW!
My camera phone sucks. But it's not really the quality of the image that we need to worry about. Only that I booted Red_Bool into second place again.
That's actually quite impressive that you beat my score within 10 minutes of getting online. The "HAHAHA" at the end of your message brought a smile to my face
I'm just childish. And a bad winner. And an even worse loser.

Ha, great vid
Loving these new star wars tables. Glo's Clone Wars score is rather good, going to try and challenge it today.
Shook my fist at your ESB a few times last night Franko, but I have a juicy score growing on ESB, which I had to save part way through last night as I went off to play some GRAW2. Can't remember the exact tally, but think I'm in the high 20m on Ball One.
Not that that means anything!
I have Duallusion on my list too, so as well as everyone else has done, I think he tops the Clone Wars and Boba Fett tables for me atm.

Hopefully they'll do the other 5 films as well. Would love to see Indiana Jones ones as well.
"Fortune and glory kid. Fortune and glory!"
The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

There's another 7 Star Wars tables to come.
164m on Clone Wars It took quite some effort to beat glo's score! Hopefully Mr. Destroyer can keep up
Damn you to hell red_bool. I thought that score might last a few more days at least.

Fucks sake, you lot are too good. At least the baby seems to be keeping Local off, she always kills my scores...
I have a new mortal enemy. The polite assassin. Red_Bool.
I'm going to picture this image. To fuel my revenge, etc.
Yeah saw Bool's score last night and it raised an eyebrow. That table throws the ball away for fun. The amount of times I've kept the ball alive for ages only for it sink as soon as a mission activates is insaine.
I'll keep at it though as I am becoming more and more familiar with the missions.
The table indeed has a tendency to loose your ball at the stupidest moments (but perhaps that's just me), but luckily it will also throw millions and millions of points your way
I'm pretty confident someone will beat my score before the week(end) is over
Damn you Franko! That was quick!
Nice score! b*st*rd

Heh, I had a moment where everything just clicked last night. It was actually the third ball that did the most damage as I lost the second one when my score was miles away from you and I was close to giving up out of frustration of losing another ball just as I was about to finish a mission. Glad I kept going because I ended up completing 3 missions (the one when you have to take down the shield generator with bombs, the weapons factory and the other was taking out Darth Maulís brother) as well as pulling off some other stuff I had never been able to do before.
It is a score that can be beaten for sure because once I got to your score it only took one more mission to get to my final score, plus maybe one or two million from other bits around the table.
Great table though, I am really enjoying the missions now I know what is needed and once you get the hang of activating the ball save it can really increase your play time.

I actually got most of my score on the 3rd ball as well. That and somehow I earned an extra ball. It's a funny table: On the first ball you might get 5 million and loose the ball due to something stupid, then on the 2nd ball you take a glance at the score and you're already over 40 million. I think for my score I only completed Darth Maul's brother mission and the one with maneuvering the gunship. Getting far in the training also helped, plus I got the 4- (or 5-) ball multi-ball, which is mayhem
This is definitely one of my favourite tables.
Played my first couple of goes of The Clone Wars last night - only hodge-podged together a paltry 49m, but this is because I spent the majority of my time fighting my way to 74m and change on ESB.
TCW seems quite nice - faster and less simple than I was expecting from evilashchris' review, and sort of reminded me of Spiderman crossed with elements of Blade and Biolab, but smaller and faster than all of them.
I'n in love with ESB though - my score is easily, easily beatable - there are still missions I haven't even triggered yet and loads of stuff I haven't unlocked that must have some nice scores behind it. Loving the JEDI TRAINING minigame, although a bit confused about direction and timing sometimes. Also did my first Tie-fighter multiball, managed to complete Scene 1, and completely wasted a STAR WARS FRENZY.
It's a lot like The Avengers table really - there is so much content to do, the 'roll speeds' are similar and it has loads of brilliantly realised special effects and sounds. Also, because I gravitate towards it, it is making me ignore the other tables in the same pack.
Ah, looks like I'll be spending a bit of time on ESB tonight then.
Because of the Clone Wars table and trying to beat Bool I have been ignoring the other two tables. Gots to get my Jedi on!
Good, good...You do that Franko
I saved an ESB game earlier where I'd already tipped 30m on ball 1 though, so there's promise there.
Starting to get a feel for it, although the number of games I've restarted because the bumpers autonomously send the ball down a side-drain... grrrrr.
