    Since the addition of the Tour Champion tier, the number of ranked rounds required to play as Tour Legend to lock AV has increased from 200 to 750. Does anyone know the new numbers for the other tiers?

    From what I can tell, the other tiers remain unchanged for number of ranked rounds to saturate.

    Yep, dumbest thing WGT ever did. You never know when you draw a champion in a round (unless, of course, you've played before). Some of them are really good. Some can't drive a nail in a snow bank .

    Of course - this is one of the imminent players' grinds that pay WGT's bills, in line with levelling up as a player and as a CC, and the recurring frenzy of "winning" the Clash events.

    Shoot, I just turned Tour Legend....  750 rounds really?  That means if I have a bad round my avg. jumps through the roof, and it's tough to drop it.  I haven't been playing certain courses that I enjoy because I'm lucky to hit a -4 on them.  Then I have to spend a couple of days playing courses I play well just to drop my avg. again.

    I remember when I turned Legend and my avg. got up in the 70 range.  It takes forever to drop it at only -.01 for a 6 or 7 under.  Guess I'll just have to deal with the old play a hard course, then play several easy courses.  I'm at 61.38 and I really don't want to go over 62.  It will be a real monster to get to the average of 55.

    Oh well!!

    @Syxguns 

    Just a quick note of clarfication, to go from TL to Champion tier, the required average is 59.00. 

    You'll need a 55.00 to go from Champion to Tour Champion (along with 200 rounds at Champion tier).

    @Syxguns

    (compensate high scores with low ones to keep the ave. down)

    No need to to so - saturation will take care of the higher scores, locking them out one by one, once you exceed 750.

    Eventually, all that counts is a number of scores (750 for TLs) which form an average of 59.000 or less. Those high scores afflicting you now will have been buried in oblivion. Dealing with more courses will make you a better, more versatile player!

    Sidenote: The following text, without the intermitting exclamation marks, provokes a "security alert" and blocked my post invariably:

    Yes, according to this player:

    http://www.wgt.com/forums/p/567054/3908684.aspx#3908684

    I advanced to Champion this morning.  I am prepared to declare that the advancement requirement to go from Tour Legend is 750 countable ranked rounds.  I had 753 total RR but 3 rounds were non-countable par 5 only rounds.

     

    Edit: I apologize for not being clear. The above is a quote from that player at the link I provide. I didn't just advance to Champion.

    I posted it somewhat hurriedly and didn't take the time to clearly say that I was quoting that person.
