So angry about this run. Look at it!
*For Classic, the amount you receive on the roulette affects the next roulette. So while these are “missed”, they potentially would have negatively affected the total number collected.
**I was awarded the same new move twice.
Also, I always went to the most difficult path on Classic.
Other Section:
Home Run Contest: 5 Minutes (Was following a method found on a Japanese blog)
Missed 3 (over shot by a meter or two).
Smash Bomb: 5:22
Collected: 4  NEW MOVE
Missed: 2
Smash Bomb: 5:22
Collected: 5
Missed: 2
The good thing about clearing Classic is that it gives you a ton of coins, which can be useful for Trophy Rush.
Please note I have 6 more customs to find, so my data may be skewed.
For All-Star you are awarded the number of customs depending on your difficult level. 1 for Easy, 2 for normal and 3 for difficult. It doesn’t seem farming friendly at all.
EDIT, Monday 14:36: I have all the custom moves. Now I just need the hats. Runs not aiming for any custom moves will be added later.
I think Trophy Rush, 2 minutes is the most efficient way to farm right now.
