Can we all admit that it is in need of an update? Especially for Royale.
Here are the main complaints with slug fest in regard to Royale:
1. The rewards suck schweddy balls.
2. The only way to get the bonus player is to go through 50 levels of crap.
3. The points are terrible.
So how do we fix it? Glad you asked!
How To Fix Slug Fest:
1. Can the 50 levels of crap. Nobody wants to do 50 matches for a 5,000 point bonus player. That suuuuuuuuuuuuuucks! Instead, change the format to mimic an actual Homerun Derby. We pick a hitter, do a round of 10 pitches and compete against 5 other hitters. Top 5 move to Round 2, then top 4 to Round 3, then top 3 to Round 4 and then top 2 for Round 5.
Round 1: 5K cash for win, 2K cash for loss.
Round 2: 7500 cash + 2nd Round Slugger for win, 2K cash for loss.
Round 3: 8K cash + 1K XP + 1st Round Slugger for win, 2K cash for loss.
Round 4: 10K cash + 1500 XP + Slugger Box for win, 2K cash for loss.
Round 5: Bonus Player + 2500 XP for win, 2K cash for loss. (after cycle, switched to Slugger Box + 2500 XP
This would also open up the possibility of a Derby Day Event.
For normal homerun battles, just bring back the gold battles permanently.
