I couldn't agree more. Since the VEM has been implemented, the game has gone to hell. I have played 2 9 hole rounds today. The first finishing +5 because of inconsistent shot distance on putts and breaks lying.
The game is so ridiculous now, it falls far beyond " Like real golf". I think you need to have a few Pro Golfers back to try it with the VEM on them and see what they say.
The second round was with a Tour Pro and a Legend. The Legend finished at -4 for 9 holes on ST Andrew Back 9. The tour pro +8 and me +5.
How many complaints is it going to take to get you to get rid of the Virtual Ethernet Module and put the program back as it was. We made suggestions to you through the years on things to change or fix in this beta program.
The 5 minute wait i suggested change to 2 minutes and you changed to 2 1/2 minutes. Oh fine. I never suggested put in a Novus 1000v VEM that would alter all phases of the Virtual Switching Module and therefore create ridiculous situations to the game.
I think you need to really listen to your golfing customers an heed their complaints. We knowyour using a VEM because you copyrighted the use of it a year ago. Thats public record. So don't try to lie about it. It comes on when anyone comes online but may not show up until the 3rd or 4th tee. That's when shots go wrong , Meter slows down near the ding and speeds up past the ding. Space bars freeze so that your conversations all run together. Other things like green speeds vary. For example. today on St Andrew playing on Tournament Greens and with a downhill putt of 37 ft I hit 23 and the ball rolled 23ft and stopped. So the next time i had a similar situation and I hit the ball much less and it rolled 20ft past the hole. What is it. How are we expected to understand how hard to strike a ball in any situation when you control the shots?
I bet if I bought new R11S clubs and Nike balls, I could have a normal game. Without the VEM screwing up every shot. thats what it's for isn't it. To sell products. Well good luck say goodbye to your best golfer friends who are just plane fed up with the crap.
I would think by now you WGT would get the picture but I get it's on deaf ears and blind eyes. I think I will continue to play and continue to complain until you do something. i don't care what my score is. It doesn't matter if i can play until the free balls come in and continue after that until you see that I don't care any more.
What WGT has done to me is make me look like a complainer when I side with the other people who are not happy with the game and not afraid to voice my opinion.
So WGT, you have a nice day as your people begin to drop off your roster and new people find out what happens when they achieve Pro level and their starter clubs and balls are no good. But it doesn't stop there. Later when they have upgraded but not in a while, they experience inconsistencies, they will be here on the forum voicing their dislike of the way WGT treats them. Good Luck your on the way down.
