If memory serves me correctly, HK was on 74mil earlier today on the ROTJ table so current friends leaderboard is representative of how well each of us are going.

It's not that hard of a table... I was struggling with hitting 9mil for most tables and just got 36.9mil one or two games ago.

If you can get the story elements going and hit the right spots it is easy to rack up a few million...
It is a matter of hitting the right spots... I seem to be able to hit 1 or 2 of the points, but not all of them.

Slowly getting better though. Thinking I need to go to my mates place and play his actual Star Wars pinball table, haven't played it in ages...

Yep, that's how I got up 36mil+. You need those events to rack up big points. Depending on your play style and skill level, some events are better than others.

Also last night I started playing with the X360 controller rather than the keyboard... SO MUCH NICER!!!
Felt a little more natural, especially using the triggers for the paddles, joysticks were for tilting if required, A button for starting and choosing things...
That was when I got my 11mil score, hopefully I can better that during the week.

I struggle in Jedi mode, I haven't finished one yet, I get close on a couple of them but have never finished them, the way I have found to get the points is getting jackpots alot and doing other table challenges, the death star gives a big bonus but you need to lock 4 balls before it pays out.
Also for some unlucky reason I get most of my points in ball 3, ball 1, 80% of the time I struggle to get 2mil.

LOL. Ironically, I started doing the same thing yesterday since I had hooked up my controller to play Life is Strange.

Totally agree that the 360 (or even XB1) controller makes the game so much better. With the KB, I kept getting right shift and enter confused if I took my hand away for a sec and didn't press right flipper several times due to that. No such issues with the controller and the triggers are more intuitive.

I play with a controller too (PS3 pad) as I play my Steam games on the TV now. Works quite well for this :)

OK, this table is wierd... I got 18mil+ from a single point somehow. I gotta find out how to replicate this ;-)

Another day, another few mil added to my best.

Ugh@over 100 million! HA!

I am at something like 31 million so far, but getting better each time I play it. Trying to narrow down which missions give the best points. I'm sure I should be able to at least double my score by the end of the week, but 100m+ ...no way!

I dont mind the table but there are a few things that annoy me, every time I try for one of the events I never get to finish it.

The way I earnt most of those millions was the jackpots, I just kept getting them while under multiball and kept it going for a while too.

Looks like you're able to sustain multiballs and jackpots better than I can mate.

41mil is my best to date I think. My last few games have been bad with balls being lost left and right.

I'll just leave these here:

Keep at it kharis. It's not hard once you know which events give the big points... you just need to always hit the required spots then.

I need to start doing the Jackpots. I normally do Scene 4 which is the multiball scene even... that's how I got my 41mil. But the jackpots give more.

WOW, see where he gets super jackpot at the ring ramp to the upper trigger paddle, you need to keep hitting that to unlock the death star multiball, then once you do you go for it.

Thats what gets me the points.

I also found that I did better with the controller over the keyboard.

Yeah, I noticed your score is now up to 150mil :-P

I can hit the spot for the Scenes easily enough but still getting the hang of aiming for the ring ramp.

Maybe we should do Space Cadet next... I was good at that back in the day - lol

Well, I think the friends leaderboard is giving a good indication of our best score for this week. Don't think any of us will be beating HK's 159mil.

I have sore trigger fingers, lol.

It seems I wont this week.

So whats the next table?

Kharis, the best thing to try for is the deathstar which is the ring ramp above the top flipper, you need to go around that ramp to spell deathstar to unlock it, then I found that unlocking the R2DR jackpot ramp and the other round thing on the right ball return all while completing the deathstar challenge unlocks alot of points.
