Tip 3 Completion
Game Completion %
Are 2 different animals .
Multiplayer Game Completion Percentage
The colored ball you see next to player names in multiplayer lobbies
is their Multiplayer Game Completion Percentage. It represents the
percentage of the time the player finishes a multiplayer game. Green
represents excellent completion percentage, Yellow represent good
completion and Orange represents below average completion. The value
are determined by the player's last 100 multiplayer games.
As EVERYONE knows by now that the color of ones ball is personal consequence . Major contributing factors being high numbers of involuntary disconnects , server errors and unstable connections , etc .
It DOES NOT mean you are a quitter . No one thinks you are .
Game completion is only recorded in multiplayer rounds ( including match play and alt shot ) . Period .
Single player rounds are designed with a restart option available , also
an end game with no consequence option . That is the whole idea of the
single player round with the restart option is to play as many times as
you like with out affecting your average or game completion in a
negative way (aside from completing with a bad score )( essentially
not hypothetically you can or could play until you better your last
score and only that score will count ) .
Also another reason WGT leaves you green while playing these so you
may have the option of exiting at any time . If for instance you were
to get an invite . You accept the invite with no negative consequence
The exception to this is single play rounds . which do forfeit the
match . And of course if you do not complete . You wasted a pass . I
was only commenting on the raising the average by not resuming a single
player match . Which is not correct .
Now mister " never leave a game " Another very popular format here at WGT is the multiplayer stroke play matches
. In these matches game completion is absolutely counted . As is not
completed games . And a very big deal for a lot of people . And not so
much for the bigger majority of players as there isn't any moral reason
or legal reason to worry about it .
In fact . WGT already knows this and
has made it an option in the game by providing the forfeit button . It
is part of the game . It is a game . There are actually millions of
legitimate reasons to exit a game , whether it be personal , medical ,
domestic , occupational , psychological , comical , legal , spousal ,
fatherial , motherial , child related , irrational , unsportical ,
embarrassment , fear , even no reason at all . Are all legitimate and
viable reasons to exit a game . happens all the time every minute of
everyday . No reason to give it another thought . It is OK .
I don't mean to repeat myself but . I'm just sayin
More commonly ( for many , many WGTers ) . In all other types of
matches unlimited play single player ( NOT SINGLE PLAY ) very big
difference . In the menu WGT provides an option called restart . This
option is available in all WGT and CC unlimited play single player
Since game completion is not and never has and never will be a
concern in these matches simply not in the format . This restart option
means that at any time during that round 1st , 2nd , 3rd , 4th , 5th ,
6th , 7th hole, etc , etc you can click that restart button . Restart
your round and then play a couple holes click restart again and again
and again as many times as you want until you get the score you like .
That will be the only round counted or recorded even if you restarted
100 times . The ranked round that you finish with will be the only one
counted . No change in your average unless it is lower than your average
. Of course if you are saturated nothing will happen if it is over your
This is why CC's are so good for honing your skills ,
lowering your average , moving up in tiers . You can control and
minimize your unfavorable scores ( with out playing off the red tees ) .
Just restart until you get the score you want . Lol blows you away what
I am saying if you didn't know this or never thought of it that way .
There is no forfeit or WD in these games and are what a majority of
members spend their time in .
