    Yeah, Excalibur is quite an easy table in respect of the various modes and challenges. The only one I'm not very good at is the beat the champion mini table game. All of the other modes are fairly straight forward. Of course the challenge is putting it all together in a single run.

    @rice_sandwich I swear that has become more difficult, too! I used to be able to defeat the champion and retain the crown on numerous attempts.

    It definitely has got harder. Well a combo of that and me just being shitter. I used to regularly get 50 mil + and now I can barely get 15. I've lost my mojo on that.

    All I've done in this thread is moan, but I really like the game on the whole. I swear! I should find out how many hours I've sunk into this today!

    It's a great game but I am limited to docked play. I genuinely find it awful and far too slow in handheld mode. It honestly is the first game I've encountered where being 30fps has effected me. It normally doesn't bother me at all. I really like the iron & steel tables. I need to spend more time on them though.

    Just had one of those random, completely out of nowhere games again. This time on Son of Zeus.

    146 million.

    I figured out how to activate the kickbacks, but for some reason I was offered extra balls like crazy. I must have had about 15 chances in total (including ball saves). I played, if not beat all 8 challenges, which then sets of a crazy multiball not to dissimilar to Sorcerers Lair (although not as bonus heavy). The challenges themselves offer between 4 and 8 million and if you can activate the volcano, scoring there with a multiball is 4 million per shot!

    There was a fair bit of slow down during the storm sequences though, which resulted in me losing 2 balls. It also still irks me that until things get rolling, that table is really hard!

    Son of Zeus is my current fave table, although I've only managed 46 million at this point!

    Thankfully, that slow down issue doesn't seem to be present in the PS4 version.

    Any new highscores? I've been separated from my Switch since Friday. No access to the leaderboards. :(
  • Deleted user 27 December 2017 12:08:08
    Not been on it. I'm too hooked on the end is nigh and enter the gungeon.

    Have the leaderboards been sorted so I have more than 1 friend?

    I don't think so. We're still waiting on a patch. Given that they're trying to include 1080p support when docked, and 60fps when portable, it might be a little way off.

    I'm waiting for the leaderboard patch before putting in any serious efforts. I haven't had that many good scores yet anyway.

    \o/ I won a gift card in the Wild West Rampage tournament. Unfortunately, not because of my score, because I'm shit, but because I was one of the 5 participants drawn at random.

    How long does it take to sort the poxy leaderboard thing out. It's made me lose interest and probably along with quite a few

    @rice_sandwich Nice going! Will have to see how that compares to me. How did you do it? I think my highscore involved completing two challenges. Its so hard keeping the ball in play to achieve much more than that, though.

    @DangerousDave_87

    I got 10 million somehow and just kept on chipping away at various small bonuses. I got 21 million from the first ball. Unfortunately I played on the non-classic mode so it doesn't really count.

    140 million on the Mars table, number 11 in the rankings. Took me about 40 minutes!

    Hmm... Tempting to pick up some more tables, but may wait until this patch is ready. Its not like I've got many at the moment.

    Managed 90 million on Excalibur this afternoon. My shot was miles off towards the end so failed some big score challenges. Could have surpassed 20 million, me thinks.

    @rice_sandwich Apparently a performance update for Nintendo Switch is hiding away in the recent Jurassic Park update. All players should be able to see all friends. There's video capture as well. Not sure if the framerate/resolution upgrades are present yet, though.

    Any switch owners fancy adding me to see how bad I am at this?! Is there a thread for swapping friend codes and stuff?

    Just checked, Switch version still very much at 30 in handheld mode. I just can't play it like that, I can hardly follow the ball.

    @rice_sandwich Yeah. I can finally see you on the friends list. That's two Switch games that launched with leaderboard issues.

    @Cadence There is a Switch friend code thread, which I went link to from my phone, but you could always put your code in here if you can't find it. :)

    As far as I know other platforms also suffered from the leaderboard bug. I think I'll have a few games tonight to get back into the swing of things.

    Friend Tournaments should be a lot easier to access with the leaderboard fix.

    @uiruki Disappointing news. Hopefully they're still working on out. They promised to! They've still yet to acknowledge this patch, which is odd.

    The Switch frame rate and resolution patch has allegedly been cancelled due to the devs not having the resources to put into it at the moment. According to Twitter, fwiw.

    How nice of them. I guess that might mean it hasn't sold as well as they'd hoped? Disappointing, either way.
