I thought interesting situation during SST at the CNEPC yesterday. Mostly it is a lesson for TDs to disable you interlocks and turn off chase balls. But that asside, I am curious what others would have ruled. 2 things happened.
Player 1 had a ball fail to launch in multiball. And when he drained, the game went into ball search. It eventually sent a chase ball and the player craddled up. The ruling was made to play on.
Later during P2 ball, they were playing multiball and when they has 2 balls left, the game ended multiball because it was acting as if one ball was missing. TD tried to open the game to remove one of the balls, but interlocks were not disabled. Ruling was a compensation ball.
It would be best to not get into this situation, but how would you rule?
