    Did somebody say rigged Barrel House…..🤷🏻‍♂️
    I'm confused by what you mean by 5.7 and 5.8.  You mean the round and level?

    I don’t quite understand how to score more points, but getting through it isn’t too difficult and there is PXP so I like it. I did notice that the first pitch skill on your player doesn’t appear active, but you can select it as a skill for the event. That seems a little odd.

    Yeah, quite easy to get through. I didn't realise the rewards were one off so paid gold to do it again. I also thought scores accumulated, but it is just your high score that counts.

    It’s like WOH on HGH. I like the strategy, and not sure about anyone else but I saw way more fastballs than a typical woh round — 104 mph fastballs, not that Lester BS.

    Just something else that they probably poured hundreds of man hours into developing that 99 percent people just play a couple quick rounds then forget about it (like EB).

    It would be cool if playing more than once was actually worth it.

    I like it. At the very least it’s relatively easy for a a nice little award. I was confused with the skills stuff as I don’t like to read directions lol. Now I know to stack certain skills so it gets more points. If you’re willing to spend some gold on re entries and shuffling skills seems like decent awards.

    I messed with it a bit. First pitch doesn’t work at all and leadoff is always on……only @ the barrel house! 😂

    Barrel House... sounds like name of a skeezy dive bar to me.

    I really appreciated knowing who the pitchers will be for each round as well as their stats and their handedness. Wish they had this feature for WOH.

    fun and easy way to get a couple thousand pxp. I like it better than EB and seems to be quicker to get through than Payoff Pitch

    I honestly kinda enjoy it.  Especially since it saves your progress.  For someone that doesnt open the app a ton, its something cool and lowkey to do without worrying about time

    I would rather not spend 100 gold and not get more XP

    I’m not receiving any rewards for beating the levels. Took a resource screen shot before and after and exactly the same. None yesterday either and not sure have actually ever received any.

    You only get the awards 1x a week. Not everyday.

    Hmm. So the only reason to play more than once per week is to improve score ? Lol. Might be able to break into top 6000

    LOL, i was excited to add this my daily routine (achievement videos, what ever is on the daily challenge ...)  Now no reason to play more than once a week.  Have they ever posted anything about how to score more points?

    It’s all about the skills selection. After you complete a round you pick a boosted skill. The strategy(from what I gather) is you want to stack a skill so the boost is higher. HR count for more points that singles etc. The one thing I’m not sure on maybe someone can clarify, does the skill need to be active to get points? Like if I have lefty pitcher skill boosted to 20% but it’s not active do I get the boost to points still?

    I just added a guide that was shared with me to the charts thread.

    I only got one level worth of XP and PXP meaning a few hundred of each. I beat all the levels many times so should have been thousands of each.

    I got it after the extra bases collection. Not sure if there was a bug just for this or if it was somehow tied to extra bases inadvertently. Either way, I got my reward now.

    Okay, I see it now. Rewards are there if you scroll down past pick a skill after each level.

    I've reached out to the owner and asked him if he would be interested in suing glu....essentially for taking the name of his bar and shitting on it, and associating it with world renoun hideousness.

    Get the other 900 bars named Barrel House across the country and have them file jointly.
