Agree, definitely time for a change on clashes, they're tedious at best in their current state and only the top 3 clubs get rewarded...to any value.
Lack of variety is the biggest issue and when we're involved 48 hours every two weeks that lack of variety makes clashes very boring, very tedious and just a struggle for about everyone.
I'm good with really, really fast greens and high winds, but every round, 48 hours straight, twice a month! What would be wrong with a little mix, make it like real life, make it like WGT? In every other aspect of WGT you get a mix.
Seems there's 3 to 4 courses used for each clash, so why not 3 to 4 conditions? High winds and standard speed greens for one, low winds and tourney speed greens for another, etc, etc. 30+ mph winds on Royal St. George isn't a lot of fun...real life, I'd go to a movie instead.
And there seems to be very little VARIETY in the clubs we face...how are matches decided? We're a level 10, a little over 6 months old, yet in the last clash the lowest level clubs we faced were a 10, a 14 and a 16...the rest were 18s, 19s and one 20 and we played 11 clashes. And this was not an anomaly...just the worst of what's become a routine. Is that how the top clubs manage to always be on top...they get loaded up with clubs half their size, half their level? Someone has to be playing these lower level clubs as we're surely not. Lol.
And this adds to the tedium...along with every round a struggle, every clash is a struggle. We don't mind playing 18s, 19s and 20s, we even win sometimes...but every clash! How bout a mix?
The rewards, unless you're in the top 3, are a joke. If WGT would fix the other things, I wouldn't care much about this...we play mainly for pride as it is. While we're now starting to play in the top 100, we'll never get to the top 3.
The CC passes you win just aren't of much value as you cannot hang onto them...save them for when they can be best used; as in a turf war or the next clash. As long as you have any CC passes in your possession you won't see another every 12 hour free one until you're at 0 again.
COURSE BUILDERS maybe I need this one explained to me; I see very little value in these. I heard using these in a way to benefit your country club (in XP) was a glitch that WGT solved recently. Only thing I'm certain of, but could still be wrong, tournaments built with course builders don't count as RANKED ROUNDS to those who play them. if that is the case and there's no XP value to the country club...why bother.
