My one piece of game play advice:

You absolutely MUST learn how to make your "throw-in" shots from 100 feet and in. I mean like make 95%-plus of everything under 60 feet, and around 2/3 (or better) of the 61-100 footers. It takes a lot of practice, but eventually becomes second nature.

Is the game putting you at a single aimpoint that's pointed at the same spot every time, or is there significant variation in the starting point and you need to totally eyeball it every time?

I don’t count on the default lineup being correct - although it often is - and set up my aim (eyeball it - to use your term) every shot

Gotcha. I wasn't assuming it was correct necessarily by default - for example maybe it is set to aim at the bottom of the basket every time, and the adjustment is on you or else the wind and angle could save you if you leave it. I've had the app for a few weeks, still like level 1. Do you ever switch to the putting mode?

Inside of 30’ (mostly) unless I have to go through a tree or precisely aim it.

I’d rather have a 40-45 footer to throw in than a 30 foot putt, in most cases.

Gotcha. Thanks for the tips. That's all really helpful - tells me a lot about where its plausible to get on that particular part of the game. I was trying to focus heavily on driving to score, but clearly the throw ins are what need to really get hit. I was also trying to focus on slowing down the throw in all the way to the tap-in instead of switching to the putt.

I'll definitely keep this in mind later. Tis appreciated.

Pretty addictive! Still unlocking discs, but will definitely start trying to play other people once I have a decent bag

Seems like the money putter for throw-ins is the Pure but man the blow-by results can be brutal. Do any of the really good players use something else?

Sure that reward is always a Recoil?

I unlocked one at about level 12, after doing all of the stars except Crow's Nest and Grizzly Gulch 3rd stars.

The best way to grind levels is multiplayer btw. But it's sometimes glitchy when players drop. Also, people have been hacking the hell out of the scoreboards and tournaments lately and it's quite annoying.

Definitely need to get good at throw-ins from 50-100 ft. That was good advice.

FB page says that the exploits are supposed to be fixed this weekend so that should help.
