i emailed WGT something, and wanted to share it here.
When I am not on WGT, I am playing TAP Sports Baseball, usually at night when I can't find a H2H game to play. They have a similar "gold" system where you watch videos and get gold that can be used for player boxes and such.
In that format, it's similar to WGT. They also have video limits of 500 per day at 5 gold per video and a random double value video. What is unique is that the game is coded in a manner that will not allow it to be played on an emulator. So if you want to watch the videos, you have to manually click videos, 1 at a time. You are also not allowed to be logged into multiple devices at the same time.
In this manner, I think WGT failed. I can log into my ipad, my phone, and my work phone and knock out 75 videos in a matter of 10 minutes give or take.
My proposal was: raise the number of videos from say 75 to 150, eliminate the ability to be logged into multiple devices along with eliminate the emulator access. This forces the player to manually click if they want the videos. Throw in a random double value video...have certain weekends where all videos are double the value (not every weekend). This will promote video watching, eliminate the "farming" of credits.
I believe DonCaron said, people need to learn how to play a cheaper ball. I have done that, moving from the 975 credit level 90 (now 87) Titleist to the level 40....but even further to the 450 credit Callaway. The 300 credit callaway's have too fast a meter for me, and the 2.0 durability takes away...20 or so hits from the 450 credit ball. It can be done
