Well, guess its time to add my 5cents... :)
Though I didnt like EA when it first has been introduced I kept patient, watched the development of things, noticed the improvements (e.g. 'classic' greens) and finally gave launcher a fair chance.
Still dont like the state of the graphics (aka 'cartoon style') but already discovered some superior features as well like the approach grid and the smoother meter.
Most of the crucial To Do's have already been mentioned and are in discussion, yet I would like to add two more aspects that definitely need to be addressed:
1) Handling/ General Ergonomics:
far too much clicks needed to set up the shots. The options boxes (club selection/ shot selection/ spin) should close automatically when switching to the next one. The need for an extra click to close each window is annoying and time consuming!
the correct determination of the wind direction is important - so why does the wind indicator has to be that small and almost in triangle shape. Hard to get it at a glance and even under close observation it sometimes cant be clearly told if its e.g. a 6:30, 7:00 or 7:30 clock direction. There is enough space in that upper left corner, so please just enlarge that indicator an give it a more arrow like shape.
oh yesss - I do find playing at launcher EASIER than on Flash (thumbs up!) but...
the amount of lipouts is just ridiculous! Please correct me if I am wrong but compared to the flash gameplay putting seems to be far less forgiving. This is a true show stopper/ fun killer and very often leaves me with frustration rather than enjoyment. Taking a break often is the only option to digest the anger...
Wouldnt it lead to a win-win if the algorithm was loosened up a bit and leave the player with a positive experience rather than an exaggerated negative impulse?
Beyond all that I trust that Topgolf is working on the critical fixes and will continue to further improve the app. Like I said - I made my peace with launcher but am expecting further attention to make playing WGT Golf real fun again!
