I just loaded up the game a few minutes ago after hearing rumors that Pinball was changed. From what I can tell, they buffed it. Pinball no longer accelerates slowly, meaning top pinball players can get even higher scores with lucky runs. The scoring potential has been raised. PIIIIIIIINNNNNNBAAAALLLLLL!!!

Pinball accelerates faster that's for sure but I also find it harder to keep it in play. Maybe I just need to get use to the new pinball engine. So dumb that they change a powerup's physics in a middle of a tournament like this.
Gee, that was unexpected(sarcasm). A bunch of pinballers telling me to get better, whatever. Like I said, do you guys really think you would be topping the tourneys if they, just for once, did not allow your crutch?
Additionally, for the most part, we were on the top before when we were using flame notes. We made the transition, and if you want to get back to the top yourself, you should too. Otherwise, sorry, but I don't think flame notes will be reverted.
Zage, Ketchup, and I have all made changes to our playstyles, and a lot of other ScoreHero members have all but given up with the game because they don't like the change.
As a wise man, Mr. Miyagi once said: Pinball yes; OK. Pinball no; OK, Pinball maybe; squish like grape. (I'm paraphrasing of course)
I agree, that is exactly the problem, NO OTHER loadout can touch even a decent pinballer's score. They might as well get rid of the rest of the secondary powers and just have pinball. They can call it Rock Band Pinball or Arkanoid:Rock Band.
To be honest, I cannot help but agree with tableist.
What do you mean "Is that Bibarel in my icon?" No it's not! Shut up! :P
