    There has to be a better way of discouraging players from quitting a game.  My record of playing with quitters is 2 out 3 players quit during a game - this is very frustrating. Perhaps if these quitters were penalized - they would stop quitting - I have stopped playing with Foursomes - Hackers and Amateurs because of this issue. And the player that wants to play is penalized by not receiving Level points for the quitter and has to wait for 2-3 minutes to continue his game.

    So, what if the player that quits was penalized -150 points against their Level Score for quitting a game.

    And the player that continues to play the game out was awarded +150 points against their Lever Score for a quitter player.

    And the waiting time was discontinued.

    PLEASE HELP!!!!!!

    A Frustrated Player

    Dear WGT

                       Dealing with quitters would be easy if player quits for any reason to bar him/her for 2 hours of getting on the course.

                                                                         Thanks 18Bob18

    I can understand, this is your 1st post at the wgt forum. So if you had known you could have searched & found approx. 8762 Quitter threads (some spelled 'Quiter' or Queter or Queeter ect)

    I play with friends and it eliminates the quitting aspect of playing with others.

    WGT has stated that it would be hard to impose penalties for quitting because there is a possibility that the person did not quit because of their score. Some just get disconnected.

    I don't play the random multi-player games with many hacks or low tier either, half the time they quit & get discouraged so it's too much pain in the azz to try & finish a game(though I will say that some player will finish with a 42 or something) and my hats off to them.

    But when I do look for a random game, I try to look for tour Master and above to play because I know that they have a good chance of not quitting the game.

    I concur with most of your statement. But, when u say hackers and amateurs are quitters, u d me an Injustice. I agree there probbly are a higher mount ofquiters in those ranks, I am not 1 of them. And the ones who do quit, r giving us completers a bad name. because I'm a HACK. I'm beingdeclined quite often, by higher ranked players. If u look at my comp.%, you would  that I finish my games. I realize you ELITE layers don't like playing us new players. Butsome of u lke to play us, often handing out good tips, to help s play better. Newer players need to go to menu, and forfeit game, instead o disconnecting. You need 2 nt put us all in 1 basket.

    As a suggestion, one way to get help and learn through playing with others is to join a good country club. There you will find members of all levels more willing to aid a new up and coming player. Also there is a wealth of knowledge right here in the forums to draw on for new players.

    He didn't even hint that you were a quitter.

    You wouldn't beat him or anyone like him.

    I didn't detect testosterone, just a fairly reasonable point of view.

     Pay attention when reading and think before you post.

    3 swings, 3 misses but thanks for playing.
