    BirdieChaser2:
    I reread my original post.  You are correct.  My statement was too broad brushed.  It is based on  my experience and relatively small number of people I  play against  ( when you consider WGT says millions play).  My generality does weaken my position which was intended more to express a concern to WGT based on players I meet.

    Understood, and I appreciate you taking the time to reassess your original phrasing. My response wasn't meant to sound like a personal attack.

    The free credits are important to a great number of players, no doubt about it. And from that standpoint I understand your concern. 

    Nigel.

    Been limited to 4 or 6 credits per day (2 or 3 videos) lately, hardly worth the effort anymore.

    i emailed WGT something, and wanted to share it here.

    When I am not on WGT, I am playing TAP Sports Baseball, usually at night when I can't find a H2H game to play.  They have a similar "gold" system where you watch videos and get gold that can be used for player boxes and such.  

    In that format, it's similar to WGT.  They also have video limits of 500 per day at 5 gold per video and a random double value video.  What is unique is that the game is coded in a manner that will not allow it to be played on an emulator.  So if you want to watch the videos, you have to manually click videos, 1 at a time.  You are also not allowed to be logged into multiple devices at the same time.

    In this manner, I think WGT failed.  I can log into my ipad, my phone, and my work phone and knock out 75 videos in a matter of 10 minutes give or take.  

    My proposal was:  raise the number of videos from say 75 to 150, eliminate the ability to be logged into multiple devices along with eliminate the emulator access.  This forces the player to manually click if they want the videos.  Throw in a random double value video...have certain weekends where all videos are double the value (not every weekend).  This will promote video watching, eliminate the "farming" of credits.  

    I believe DonCaron said, people need to learn how to play a cheaper ball.  I have done that, moving from the 975 credit level 90 (now 87) Titleist to the level 40....but even further to the 450 credit Callaway.  The 300 credit callaway's have too fast a meter for me, and the 2.0 durability takes away...20 or so hits from the 450 credit ball.  It can be done

    Good suggestion , but can I point out the reason I would really like to see a slightly higher level of free credit videos , is that as an owner I gift balls , and I am a very small club , but it still takes lots of credits I also sometimes gift passes to try and win turf wars , and I occasionally like to make a tournament with a credit gift. These things cost credits , I cannot afford to buy them so I watch videos every single day and I play lower value balls in friendly games so I conserve my credits. 
    I am sure WGT has the ability to find those clubs and those players who have abused the system that now bone fide players are being penalised for .
    I know life isn’t fair , but I would have thought WGT could have found a fairer system to protect most of us and penalise the clubs and players that take the pi..

    They were well aware of who ruined it for everyone else, but for the actions of a few, everyone else was penalised.
