    Imahacker58:

    And the average mug playing this game and paying for their gear and balls has absolutely no chance in this tournament which will end up being between the same few who play on pc with their charts and calculations, yet they are still griping about using a standard set of clubs. Should be using standard wgt balls too. I’ll stick to see ball hit ball and have fun, it’s just a game. In the real world 5 or 6 under is a good score, yet all these “champions” going around in sub 60 scores and still whining about having to use a virtual set of clubs out of their comfort zone is pathetic.

    I watched Young46 play his 3rd round bracket match earlier. Now his opponent, MattMaher35, ended up winning comfortably. And he is not PC. I know most of the big comps the PC players win time after time but it has been great to see a mobile player get through qualification and be only 1 win away from a trip to Abu Dhabi. Matt plays on a small iPhone. He doesn't have rulers or other gizmo's to help calculate distances amd elevation and wind. It's all feel. Great to finally see a mobile player challenge the PC guys.

    This ETour are gona have lots of new faces, I believe, especially from Mobile platform.

    Undoubtedly mobile players are going to be a competition to Desktop flash players n iam very much looking forward to it. Personally speaking, I find it little extra strenuous to adapt to new WGT Launcher especially the current ETour being involved in.

    So probably will take time n it is never too late if you have a heart to do it :)

    Having said that, at least from Round 2 Qualifications onwards, Hoping WGT will find a way to tackle the hapless WD scheme that is been happening, which obviously are troubling certain players, being a misfortune and also tearing down the spirit of this wonderful generous ETour.

    Cheers to all positive changes :) 

    Good Luck to everyone today as the Abu Dhabi ticket is waiting to reach the doorstep of yours ;)

    Not sure there's much WGT can do to prevent WD's.

    I think that onus is on the player's.  i.e.  If you can't and/or have no intentions of travelling to the venue should you qualify, then use your brain and don't take a spot from someone else who would. 

    There's no 2000cr for qualifying so really qualifying means nothing -- unless you plan to see it through.

    I have always been a firm believer in that these "major" tournaments, that have a qualifier, should be setup as a Multi-Round tournament right from the get go.

    The tournament can be setup as a normal multi-round event with cut line after the qualifier. If a player qualifies, said player MUST complete the remainder of the tournament in order to receive the qualifying credits.

    And PLEASE, I do not want to hear excuses like "incontrolable things happen" causing WD's. You know what... IT HAPPENS. Regardless of what the cause is, if you WD, tough diddy... no credits.

    Please feel free to crucify me over my comments as I am quite sure there will be plenty.

     

    Carry on

    which is why I believe a lot of players withdrew, they saw this advertised and automatically without thinking assumed they would receive 2000 cr as an ‘appearance’ fee.

    Obviously this tourney is taking place at and concurrent with the IRL tournament.

    Any news yet on where we may find it to watch it on stream - or am I asking a bit early?
