I have to first ask a question about game rules on Guardians.
When in Groot multiball, is the drop target supposed to ever stay down, or does a hit immediately cause the drop target to reset in the up position? I’m not very familiar with Guardians, so we didn’t know how it was supposed to act.
We have one in leagues that’s been having random drop target issues. Once every once in awhile, the orb shot will grab the ball, refuse to drop and get stuck up. It happens very infrequently and the operator is attempting to resolve the issue. We’ve left it in play since it only happens once or twice a night.
With that said, we had a player in Groot multiball last night that managed to get a ball stuck behind the drop target. He tried a few times to release the ball by hitting the drop, but it just kept resetting. He trapped up assuming it was the drop target misbehaving and I removed the ball from the drop target.
My question is, if the drop target is supposed to stay in the up position during Groot, would that have been ruled a stuck ball?
