Galloping Ghost thrown under the bus?

Curios how the GGA feels about billy blaming his lack of skill on their shoddy workmanship. We've heard its the board, its the tilt of the screen (omg i love that one, does the screen tilting make pacman go in the tilt direction faster cause of gravity lol), its cause of the joystick, its cause of anything other than billy mitchel's lack of skill. I cant clip audio bitching of mitchell best i can do is whats presumably his son verbalizing how it must be the machines fault.

so i guess i'm curious. what is the ghosts standards on machines about to set a record? Have they learned their lesson that everyone who helps billy eventually gets thrown under the bus by him? Cause maybe i'm just not smart enough, but either billy who the gga is hosting is a skillless sore loser, or hes telling the truth and their maintenance sucks. (honestly the gga is awesome, i think hes just a sore loser and they're hosting someone who is giving them bad press but what do i know).


just curious how gga spins the guy their hosting constantly talking about what a shoddy arcade they run and how its all their fault he cant do it. I dont get what they get out of it

    Is it wrong to hope that the next Pac player to walk up to the machine and 1-shot perfect. :P

    I'm actually pretty disappointed in GGA for hosting this altogether.

    Part of me hopes they are on our side and did mess with the machine somehow, lol

    They're a comercial entity & BM still attracts a crowd, so I believe there's nothing wrong in their actions: maintaining an Arcade when most have gone under.

    I can understand the business side of it for sure (ignoring the fact arcades aren't allowed to be open in Illinois due to that virus thing!)

    Doesn't sit well with us arcade purists though and unfortunately I can't support them as a result.

    It definitely gets views, but will it get donations ?

    I'll leave it at that because I can't afford to be sued

    I've been there. As embarrassing as this is, it was the buttons. And remember that I only need 1 good button to get 92k+ any day, no practice, anytime. I tried all 4 and this was from the best one they had. Everything else I played was run down and poorly maintained as well. Waste of a trip.

    did you plan ahead of time?

    when i went i absolutley noticed a lot of machines needed work. some seemed fine, but at top level play the ever so slight lag in inputs mattered. but i didnt plan ahead of time to go for a record i just showed up and played for fun.

    i dont expect the place to always have every single machine in top shape. I do expect though, when they're planning a high profile event to have the machine worked on. granted i cant vouch for them, just something i'd expect

    i guess if it is their fault thats pretty funny and they should've known better than to host mr. high profile if they didnt want the bad press getting out
