Sorry. Wasn’t trying to take you out of context, I was simply emphasizing the aspect to which I was responding.
I understand your disagreement. I understand your points. I still disagree. I don’t see it as a beneficial malfunction.
Did the pin create/initiate the multiball play state (multiple balls in play) through a malfunction? If yes, then follow beneficial malfunction rules.
If no, then play on – the player is already being penalized enough with loss of the multiball rules scoring opportunities… if they are able to use the multiple balls they earned to score or make some sort of progress in single ball rules/scoring, then it’s a nice offset to their loss of multiball rules/scoring.
