    Hi,

    After 200 rounds played, i thought that my avg score will only decrease.

    but since i was 59.6, my avg score plays with my nerves ; it increases when i am less than -5.  can somebody helps me with the wgt rules on this subject.

    many thanks

    patrick

    After the latest update, with the introduction of Tour Champion and Hall Fame, early reports have been that there might have been a little "tweak" to the process of tiering up.

    Nothing has been confirmed though... simply specualtion

    Patrick,

    Same thing is happening to me.  I had about 350+ rounds as TL and watching the average go down but since the upgrade it's mostly rising. I hope someone can figure out what the round count for saturation changed to.

    When I first joined Legend was the top tier and when they added TL & Champion the averages for existing Legends was adjusted and they had to play about 100 more rounds. (That's a guess from an aging memory.) Those who made Legend after that had the 500 round, 60 ave requirement for TL.  So maybewe're in a similar situation.

    Have fun and hit 'em straight.

    John

    Hi Don & John

    They won't reply with the exact criteria. I'm guessing here's the closest statement you'll ever get from WGT.

    http://www.wgt.com/forums/p/217899/1562306.aspx#1562306

    WGTadmin

    We use an algorithm to determine when a player is eligible to move to a new tier, which takes into account a number of factors including number of ranked games played.  These numbers scale by tier, so as it's necessary to shoot a lower average to advance and to play more games to reach higher tiers.  For example, when you reach Tour Master, you will need to play a larger number of ranked rounds than you had as a Master, maintaining a low average, to tier up to Legend.

    Additionally, in response to WGT player feedback about sandbagging (misrepresenting one's true ability to gain advantage by playing at a lower tier from closer tee boxes), WGT is  using more than just ranked stroke play scores to determine each player's average score and appropriate tier ranking.

    For obvious reasons, WGT is not sharing exact details of these changes, but they include factoring in scores from players who perform well in tournaments and challenge games for credits. We still encourage the community's feedback on Sandbagging, but believe this is an important step to reducing the practice and keeping the game fair.

    Nobody knows, perheaps as christmas gift wgt will give a clear explanation !

    It's sure that an answer containing  algorithm and "for obvious reasons bla bla .... " is not very satisfying.

    but thanks for your help

    Hi John ,Pat et Al , An explanation would be good  I'm in a simialr situation as a TL my average would go down once every few weeks  however  it has now gone up by 0.63 in the days since the update.

    I understand WGT is a business and profits are a neccessity .I wonder how WGT would feel if their profits suddenly went  down like our averages have gone up without any explanation i .

    Dear Patrick,

    Thank you for your message. Changing tiers is a combination of your scoring average, and the number of ranked rounds you have played in your current tier.

    Unfortunately we do not reveal the official requirements needed to change from one tier to the next, however you can find unofficial requirements posted by our users in our forums.

    http://www.wgt.com/forums/t/217060.aspx

    Depending on what game modes you play, your average and stats may not change. Your average and stats only change during Single Player ranked matches and Multiplayer Tournaments. Please Note that ranked rounds on "Best of" courses do not count toward your average.

    To play a single player ranked round, select the three white lines in the top left of the Main Menu and choose COURSES from the pop-out menu. Choose a course and how many holes you would like to play. When you tee off you will be playing completely by yourself. Keep in mind that not all courses have a full 18 holes to play, some courses only have short challenge games available. To ensure the round is RANKED, directly before tee off make sure that RANKED is highlighted on the left side of the screen.

    If you have any other questions, let us know.

    Sincerely,

    WGT Member Services
