    When i finished the last few Alt Shot matches...The message comes up that I have forfeited the match.  My team won the match,,  When someone disconnects too fast they are credited with a forfeit whether they won or lost.

    SOS   This needs to be fixed WGT

    They haven't fixed it in years - what do you expect now?

      This is really just a nuisance . Alt shot games are non counting formats . They do not record rounds or statistics  . They mean nothing .

      However . If you are going to leave the game early . The bigger consequence is the chance that you will be charged with  an incomplete round . And lower your game completion .

      Then your completion icon will turn from green to yellow and then to orange . That is also insignificant . But some people don't like color changing icons for some reason .

      That can happen from just the disconnect glitch alone .

      My suggestion is to slow your exit from the game a little . You might get favorable outcomes .

    Top golf should be a professional enough company do make an update to fix this problem.

    Or do they just not give a crap?    If we lose we should get the loss but not the forfeit.   If my team loses and my partner disconnects too soon, i should not be penalized.

    I'm sure your computer specialists will be able to correct this injustice.

      With all due respect . You mention your partner . It would seem that you are referring to likely an alt shot team or maybe a match play ?

      No one is penalized . No loss is any better or worse than a forfeit . If the round ends that is just unfortunate .

      If that is the case . there is no reason to think that anyone won or loss in the way of any type of statistic .

      Alt shot rounds and Match play rounds . Do not record any statistics that would benefit or be an advantage or disadvantage .

      In this WGT online virtual golf game . The term " forfeit " is not supposed to be a negative term .

      In all multiplayer rounds . And only in multiplayer rounds . There is a forfeit button in the drop down menu .

      Being that most of these rounds do not count against you .

      With the exception of stroke play . Where if an opponent forfeits or exits the game . You have the option of continuing with yourself and or the remaining players . The forfeit does not effect you .

      But WGT having a rare bit of foresight in this case . Has recognized that at any moment for millions of legit  reasons . Any player may have to exit the game .

      Knowing this . Knowing this is just a game . Knowing we are human .

      WGT provides a forfeit button in all multiplayer matches . It is acceptable . And forgivable .

      May not be recommended . But it's in the game .
