      Whirlwind sucks.

      Lol

      That game was the toughest of all the games. The inserts were raised, the discs were raised, it was about 8 degrees ...

      Did you see when I smashed the top ramp for the 1 million points and it only went half way up? Grrrr.

      By the time I got to Road Kings, I knew I was out of it. I just had to beat a 7 to get into 7th place.

      At the end of the day, I guess you gotta be happy with 7th .. although those big trophies were looking pretty sweet!

      Thanks for the support guys!!

      Dave.

      Awe man, you were so close the being "Australia's own Rotor Dave". Never mind, bloody good result all the same.

      I sure did. You nailed that shot, and it still didn't go. It looked like a few of the machines had pretty serious issues, like flipper hop, raised inserts, or not being level.

      That Eric Stone is an absolute gun, and his self-commentary was hugely entertaining. He earned a spot in the IFPA Worlds for winning the US Nationals, right? Do you know if he's coming to Copenhagen?

      Massive congrats for coming 7th in such a strong field.

      Thanks Luke.

      Yes, a couple of the machines were a bit rough, mainly the Whirlwind.

      I thought most of them weren't set up much tougher than how I have my machines at home, except no ball save and no extra balls of course.

      The tilts were very tight on Aerosmith, Flintstones and CSI in particular. Aerosmith, a decent flipper push would give you a warning.

      The Sharpes always set up all the machines like this ... you're about to find out up in Denmark.

      I heard Eric talking to Josh, he is keen to come to Denmark if he can. His "self commentary" is quite amusing.

      Self commentary is the best

      Did they show many of our final groups games on the stream?

      Every time I looked, they were playing the other groups games.

      Except when I sucked on Whirlwind of course. Typical
