Win point in slugger

I have a question as to how the win point works, and what it's for. That's pretty much my question. Any insight would help. I've been looking for info on this, and can't find anything. Also, how is it possible to hit a 500 footer? The best I've done is 456, and that's with hitting square on, and it only goes a max of 456. Help? I have the foam finger bat, also.

Win points help you rank up and to get longer range buy gear with more power on it (Red Dragons as an example though I'm wearing mostly Blue Lightning and I can get about 535 feet so far).

You gain or lose win points by playing the online matchups. I think the number of points actually won or lost depends on your ranking and also the opponent's ranking.

Its possible to hit a 500 footer by getting better equipment. Some equipments will increase your power and some will increase your accuracy. How each equipment will affect these 2 stats are shown along with the equipment in the equipment screen (where you buy hats, change hair color, etc).

Gotcha. I was just wondering how exactly the win points work, wasn't sure if it was what point value you had to attain in the matchup in order to win or what. Still slightly confused on what it is exactly tho. Where was this moved to, and can I have a reason? Just signed up for this site, and wasn't aware of where to post it. I figured it pertained to the iPhone game, and I thought it was in the right forum.

NVM. I see where it at now, what was the reason?

Hi KawiKami.

My apologies, Welcome to TA

We like to have general questions and discussions about games in this section of the forum. The main iPhone and iPod Touch games section is for game releases (e.g. when a new game or a new update to an existing game comes out). This makes threads more organized and its easier to see / look for new games without having to comb through questions / discussion about games.
