    Paul, take care of yourself. I have a torn left rotator cuff, it is very painful but I refuse to get cut.

    This is just a game, worry about yourself and get better. It will still be here when you come back.

    Clashes and turf wars are just another marketing scheme to get you to play more and spend more.  Winning a clash is no more a "status" of being better than anyone else than buying the best clubs the game has to offer is going to make you a better player.  You have to put the work in.  Owning the best clubs alone doesn't make you a better player, no more than scoring the most points in countless rounds played makes one club better than another. 

    Playing countless rounds...is strictly based on volumne and paying more to play more.  There isn't a single member from the Georgian in the top 50 on the current earnings leaderboard.  I got tired of looking past that... but simply playing more and paying more doesn't make you better than anyone else, delusions of grandeur maybe, but not better...

    This doesn't mean there are not good players there but they obviously don't invest as much of their time in events that bring out the best players because they can't keep playing ready go's over and over and over until they accumulate the most points.  

    Keep feeding WGT your credits and cash though they like that.  It makes the game more affordable for the rest of us to play because they can continue to offer a virtual game at a relatively low cost because some clubs have deluded themselves into believing they actually "win" something that has virtually no real value.  

    Feel free to "defend the absurdity" of it all, I have yet to hear a single rational or reasonable explanation for beating your head against a wall just to show that you could make your head bleed.  I have also heard from members that have left the "G" because of all the in fighting and bickering in their forum.  Sorry, but it doesn't sound like a very healthy place...

    Just making a blatantly contradictory statement does not validate your claim in any way whatsoever, but sounds like your meds kicked in...sorry that could come across rude but it isn't meant that way...you, yourself referenced meds of some sort.  you may not be thinking clearly.

    otherwise provide a single piece of documented evidence if you are going to make a valid counter argument.  All you are doing is throwing out a "straw man" argument with no foundation whatsoever, no logic, no reason, no facts that validate the mind numbing pursuit of nothing that has "real value" beyond a position on a leaderboard, which is at best merely an egoic pursuit!

    LOL. Seriously?

    Well it just so happens I have books full of documented evidence to argue my position.

    I am going just to choose that you did not just say that.

    As my reference to Med was an indication that successful yet difficult rotator cuff surgery underwent just a couple hours ago.

    Some of the numbness has begun to wear off. Marking a good time  to gulp down a couple Percocets.

     However. Regarding the nerve block. That the anesthesiologist performed.

    Which is a extra Mega Numbing procedure. In which through the Wonders of ultrasound. the anesthesiologist Views the nerves in my neck Shoulder and arm and selectively Num's each one.

     That portion of my body is going to take a couple days to feel like it is back attached to my body.

    But the rest of me is going to need some assistance.

    And in a couple days if you are still up for a good healthy Discussion I'll be Ready Willing Able Equipped and gung ho.

    Till then Be well.

    Please have fun.

    I did not know that that was a prerequisite here in WGT.

    News to me.

    Sorry to hear about your medical issues, be well get some rest.  

    Since your actual position is unclear i havent read this entire thread just the last few pages, i dont really know you or your sincerity to genuine dialogue.  You could mean well and you could just be someone that enjoys talking nonsense.  You can find all types in message boards.  

    You do realize anyone can create books to validate their own views while ignoring the facts that suggests otherwise...you only have to look at common controversial topics that are often "substantiated" or validated with their own selective facts.  Any genuinely honest and open minded person can recognize that.  If all you want to do is spew your own views without acknowledging another perspective then your position is more likely biased based on personal opinion than documented facts. 

    If you can provide documentation that is also rooted in and derived by wgt stats and reference material disproving my statements feel free to provide the source material and references with links.  A simple discussion thread or opinionated statements are not facts.

    OMG.

    Use the awesome search feature that these WGT forum have available. Type in any topic and or my name if you want to hear a few opinions.

    I may have posted one or two along the way

    18,470 posts

    Probably several hundred on this topic alone. Probably enough to write a small book. LOL.

    So please don't tell me I don't have a stance on this please don't tell me I don't have documentation

      Do you know that I have recorded every single CC every single Clash every single participant every single score and every single points of every single one of 66 Clashes ..

    And in 60 of them I have sent a thank you to the owner of every CC we have ever played.

    Not to mention the amount of interaction and friendships and discussions that has been generated between myself and these hundreds of CC owners and their thousands of members. But also an extremely long CC forum thread specifically for each and evrery one of those clashes of as well.

    Now I don't think you could possibly imagine that amount of documentation or interaction or even action. It is hard for me to visualize but I'm telling you I can and it is so massive I even can't believe it

    So Mister E whatever. Please do not think for one second that I don't have something to say about this and documents to back up what I say whether or not it's to or for something regarding these clashes.

    I have been there. And I have done that. And I have a very strong opinion about it. Whatever it is you can bet on that.

    But right now I don't want to talk about it.

    pdb1:
    There isn't a single member from the Georgian in the top 50 on the current earnings leaderboard.

    That is because we all play for our CC and not for ourselves in the WGT tournaments to win credits.  Well, except one of our members, who I believe has close to $30,000.00 in winnings and contributes little to our CC except for his close to 5 million xp.  We have plenty of really good players at The Georgian.
