OMG...I know we all like to play these events, and I have played
in all the Showdowns, if possible and, from time to time, if needed, Turf Wars
and Clashes....but sheesh....is this a racket or not...consider a Showdown, 3
rounds, 1st round is 9 holes, the next 2 are 18 each so...the average ball, that you pay for, last for 2 or 2 1/2 rounds, assuming you do not play like someone who will remain nameless (but you know who you are), and don't lose every watering hole you come across, the average
player will use up approx. 1 1/2 - 2 balls..
(what is 1 1/2 ball you ask...ask the last coin hustler to tried
to beat me in match play)...
anyway, those balls cost $$$ and WGT gets it all...
With Clashes and Turf Wars, lets add a pass (if you don't stick
solely to the freebies each day) and, yes, balls, but more than showdowns
because there are many battles so, balls, balls, balls (and in nameless' case....that could be an awful lot of balls)...all $$$ to WGT..
Now, what do we win?
In Showdowns, more coins to use to play in more showdowns. You may
win clothes, or get gift boxes of clothes, from sponsors, so you can earn more
coins to enhance the clothes, which will allow you to earn more clothes.....other than that, coins do absolutely nothing...…
In Clashes and Turf Wars...if we our club is lucky enough to place in the
dismal tier of 250-500 (which we usually do), and mind you, it cost a pass to
play a round, we win extra passes (which we will get to below...cause I am just
gettin' started....), you also win club XP which in turn can level up the club
so you get more passes to use in the Clashes and Turf Wars or otherwise use to,
yep, earn more XP for the club...Now, follow me here....as the club levels up,
each player, in turn, gets an increased XP bonus each time they play...you will
see this at end of each round where it shows your club level bonus XP.
Your XP is what moves you up to the next level which allows you to spend even
more money for better clubs and balls so you can Tier Up, by improving your
average, and then move back to farther tees, which then requires your to
upgrade your clubs, so you can reach the fairways, in order to improve your
game, and thus average, so you can continue to Tier Up and get better
clubs...(for more info on this cycle....see Chapter XXIX of my soon to be
released novelette which covers why staying a Pro, with starter clubs leads to
a Happier, Healthier COVID free lifestyle in the modern world), ok, so where
