    Robbo81303:

    Gee, I withdraw from coin games fairly often, but it's usually because I've received an invite from a friend to play a ranked multiplayer round.

    Coin games are really just a sad joke, not much more to me than a way to pass the time when I can't find a multiplayer ranked round. Coin games are by far the most overtly manipulated format on WGT, especially when there's a large disparity in the opponents' tiers, and, as a result, sandbagging runs rampant. If the morons-in-charge think so little of the format and the folks who play it to allow (and encourage) this to happen, it seems silly to expect the players to show anything other than a similar level of respect for it, either.

    Just saying...

    You have to remember , mobile players dont have the same options as the PC players for multi player and alt shots , our choices are play alone in ranked rounds or practice , play friends or play coin rooms . There are a lot of mobile players who would gladly give up coin rooms in favour of multi and alt shots.

    I like to think that they are down by one and their 30 minute clock is about to run out and would to start one more game for a new chances to win.

    This is by far the best description of the coin rooms I have ever read. I agree 1000 percent. Coin rooms are a complete joke.

    As far as mobile. I started on mobile. Still would play it but I switched to PC about 5 months ago just for these reasons. 

    WGT does not seem to care about mobile at all. My old club was mostly mobile guys and they were always emailing and asking WGT for answers and never got anywhere. 

    The PC gave me new life in WGT. I probably would have stopped playing. Maybe this is what WGT wants, for everyone to just play PC. Who knows.

    Exactly. You have to play so fast to get a good few games in but are stopped by slow players. I don't why the bleep they take so bleeping long. The distance isn't going to change or the hole get bigger. Worst is off the tee. Small tail wind and wide open fairway but they still take 40 bleeping seconds. Should have 60 seconds to complete the whole damn hole.

    agreed..

    should also pair up like or more similar players.  Not sure how WGT/TopGolf thinks that pairing up a Tour Champ with Master on Olympic is anything but a guaranteed loss for Master.

      Shockingly enough many of us players are not here to see how many games we can play or how fast. Whining about someone who takes the full 45 seconds or maybe even on occaision gets a warning seems senseless. Many here to relax. If you don't have that much time well don't know what to say.
