When avoiding starting HOTK in order to start it with an add-a-ball available it's really tough to know what else you can do while flailing around avoiding the center ramp because that's the only thing explicitly lit.
Does anyone know what's actually available?
As I was spinner-all-day'ing until I lost the ball, I accidentally had a shot fall short and stay up in the top lanes, and it ended up making progress towards Wall MB. With that gate open, the ball rarely didn't make it all the way around, so instead of I shot the right orbit to see if that gate was closed. It was open, BUT, that shot started Winter is Coming. That then led me to believe that you could actually make progress on other non-center ramp shots to start Winter Has Come . . . and you totally can.
Obviously Blackwater is out of the question because you have to shoot the center ramp, but I believe that WHC and Wall MB are both still available while you are killin time. Anything else available to work towards?
Also during Iron Throne, since you can play it in single ball play, can you wait to use your Add-a-ball when that last single ball drains? I used it when I drained down to two balls thinking the "multiball" still had to be going, and I haven't been back to IT since.
