Stern have released a code update for Game of Thrones to fix some stuff. So go ahead and bug your operators to update it. Unless you own one already, you lucky son-of-a-gun.
It appears some scoring exploits were fixed, but maybe not all of them. Perhaps those billion-plus point shots are still out there, waiting to be claimed.
Also, it seems I will still need to have some sunglasses ready, since less intense lights were added to casual mode only.
How about a word of appreciation and encouragement to Stern pinball for keeping things updated and fixing exploits as they are discovered. This game is good, but it will get even better with further score balancing. There must be a way to give a strong reason to go with Stark or Lannister as the starting house. Greyjoy’s Hyper combo of Martell, Tyrell and Baratheon with Wall multiball is just too strong, if you can make it work.
