Everyone is playing on the same courses
under the same circumstances, so does it really matter?
I will always agree there is deviation; VEM obviously exists. And IMO, it does differentiate this game from others, as it keeps the game from becoming the same old "learn what to do where & all will be aces". If you want a game that once you learn what to do, when & where to do it, & you get the exact results you want, there are plenty of them out there. They are boring after a time & this would be too if not for VEM.
My point is that some here feel that we are not all playing under the same circumstances. Some feel wgt is out to get them, targeting their specific shots & games. Some feel that if they begin to shoot too well in a given round that wgt will screw up a enough of their shots to bring them back to earth. To me that just doesn't make sense. What would their possible motive be? I've yet to hear an answer to that which makes any sense, other than they deviate shots into the water or weeds to sell more balls. That one makes sense, but I don't believe it. Not that I would put it past wgt to do such things however. They are all about the almighty dollar to their own detriment.
I've even heard the suggestion that wgt targets the ones who spend the most here & screw with them the most. An absurd notion to me; if they wanted to anger & run off players, it would make sense to do so to the ones who don't fill their fat pockets.
I am aware of unsavory things this company has done & may still be doing, but targeting specific players for various reasons & messing with their game individually isn't one of them. Heck, maybe they do it just to keep the forums lively! LOL
If these opinions & feelings put me in fantasy land, so be it. It's pretty nice here, & I enjoy myself, so....
