Got it, thanks Lee.
Nivlac echos the thought of promoting from average or tournament scores, a good thought and a practical means to reduce any sandbagging.
Though I do not necesarially agree with counting only tournment rounds for an average. There must be some challenge for people to play on a daily basis.
I, like nivlac, also would like to see various leaderboards; average score, tournament average, and a "world" ranking in some form as suggested prior.
So what has this debate brought for WGT to consider?
1. Additional tier brackets
2. Promotion to next tier on ranked average and/or tournament scores.
3. Promotion to next tier on an unknowing (to members) varying average.
4. Additional leaderboards of ranked average, tournament average, and an overall ranking system that penalizes for withdrawing and not getting regular ranked rounds in.
5. Greater discrepancy of tournament prizes between tiers.
Ah, you want to get on this Alex by Monday? Seriously, some good insight from your memebers for you folks at WGT to consider in the future.
All of this, I believe, will create a more competitive and truer experience. Though it is pretty great now, it is to bad we must exert this energy for a few knuckleheads.
