And somewhere men are laughing, and somewhere children shout;
But there is no joy in Pinball - mighty Harmonix has struck out.
Though I never used them I will be glad when they bump the flame notes back. At least you are still playing the song with flame notes. If I wanted to play pinball I would play one of the numerous pinball games available.
I enjoy playing the music so I stick to more conventional power-up's. I am number 13 on Tuesday's Gone with 847.289 using Jackpot/Blast Notes/Keyboard. Blast notes are mostly useless for this song so it took a near perfect run and a bit of luck with blast note locations. While it is too late after release and no patch in sight, it would have been great to have a Trials Evolution style leaderboard. Even without repaly's just the ability to see what powerups were used by the leaders. I would like to have seen how the 20 or so people who have been able to gold star were able to accomplish it. Especially those like myself who were able to GS the song since the flame notes points were reduced.
BDSooner72 - Top 50 on 360 who has never used flame notes but shamefully used pinball on one and two instrument tracks.
