    Play fast..??  Please stop rushing other players..

    Set-up and play games with 30/45 sec clocks, there IS that option~~

    BTW-  Solo rounds are great too..

    People playing the shot clock is annoying, however it is not outside the rules.

    Also you may see the shotclock counting down, but the other player may have a frozen screen or the great "loading shot complete" on their screen. If you don't know what that is, get an iPad and you will see.

    I haven't played any H2H matches with a long clock.  I've only played the coin games with a 45s clock.  Nevertheless, I get slagged fairly frequently for slow play.  (Typically, it's when I forget to note the remaining ydg after my shot and thus can't do my wind calcs while the other guy/gal is hitting.  When that happens, I might take 30-40 seconds to plan the shot.)  I figure if the game is set for 45s shots, then that's the limit:  not some arbitrary lesser duration imagined by my opponent.  I just block the complainers, and then I never have to play them again.

    In fact, I block anyone who spouts any negativity whatsoever, even just griping about being robbed by the WGT.  Life is too short to get into an argument or be made to feel uncomfortable over a video game.

    And I have NEVER hassled an opponent about the clock.  I feel it's poor form to do so.  If he/she uses every last second on every shot in a 9-hole match, I might block him/her, but that's it.  I've never gotten anything good in life from being mean.

    I prefer to play at a quicker pace, & when i set a game up i have 45 sometimes 60 second clock. Saying that if I join A game & the player has 90 second shot clock i can either play knowing the player may use all of it or i can choose not to play. I understand all players can,t or want play as fast so if i do play a 90 second clock i take the chance players may use it all. I just play & don,t worry about it.

    I just don't play anybody without a 90 Sec clock. I'm very slow at the new game

    90 seconds isn't an option in mobile.  all :45 seconds.  

     

    I personally don't care, you want to take 45 seconds+, that's fine, have at it.  gives me time to check up on Penn State football, or text or check facebook.
