Using chainsaw on branch 1 = Texas Rangers 12 strikeouts vs. Milwaukee Brewers (Feb. 24)

https://www.mlb.com/gameday/brewers...745#game_state=final,game_tab=box,game=566745

Unless pitching doesn't count for the chainsaw [MENTION=3744]cjedmonton[/MENTION]
Confirmed. You're on branch 2 as of Feb 24th (the 2nd chainsaw does refer to pitching).

Glad you're enjoying the game. The branches themselves vary in difficulty, for sure. Unlikely for a player to K 5+ batters in a spring training game, but you only need a single hit each if you go the batter route (that, or wait for a chainsaw).

The good news is that you only have to wait one more day before the 3rd chainsaw kicks in.

3 of 6 on hits so far. Best was 4 of 6 2 days ago. Chainsaw will likely come out tommorow LOL

To use the 3rd chainsaw, dates, does it take effect at the start of the day or do we have to wait till the end of the day to use it?
It comes into play at the start of the day and you can start working on the next branch immediately, starting with the first game of the schedule.

Branch 1 has been cleared! Everyone can move on to Branch 2 today (unless you're already beyond that).

Further clarification:

Once any of the 3 chainsaw options are used, you can retroactively use any game on that day toward your next branch.

Example: You need Seattle to hit 3 homeruns to clear branch 4. However, they play the last game of the day.

If they hit 3 home runs, not only do you clear branch 4, but the entire slate of games that day are available for branch 5.

Seattle, Wa
[MENTION=3744]cjedmonton[/MENTION] I was able to get two branches chopped prior to the February 26th date :) Since KC got the 3+ HRs for the first branch chainsaw style, that opened up the Team Pitching which I was also able to cut down on the same day:

Branch 1: Completed 02/25 via chainsaw as Kansas City had 4 home runs
Branch 2: Completed 02/25 via the WSH vs ATL game (Nationals pitching allowed 2 doubles) and the CIN vs SEA game (Cincinnati pitching allowed 3 home runs)

Confirmed for branch 1!

However, the Nationals allowed 3 doubles to the Braves on Feb 25th. Each scenario must be an exact match. Since your Washington scenario does not say "2+ Doubles", that branch is incomplete through Feb 25th.

However, the Nats did allow exactly 2 doubles to the Cardinals today (Feb 26th), so branch 2 is complete for you!

You are now on branch 3 as of today!

Marlins had 12k today i think? So I'm good to move on eh?
Not quite.

Everyone is on branch 2 starting today. Your branch 2 chainsaws are Minnesota with 3+ HR or Pittsburgh with 12+ K (or the regular scenarios in branch 2).

Hope that makes sense!

Perfect. Everything has been confirmed.

You are on branch 3 as of Feb 25th.

I'll try to confirm everything the best I can...but the more info you can provide on your branch/chainsaw, the better.

It takes a village, right? ha

Good work, everyone.

Both objectives need to be met to move to branch 3?

Yes, everything on the branch needs to be completed before moving on. They can be completed on separate days, however.
