How about an update .
In the last couple of months . There was an unusual show of interest . Approximately 50 recruits showed up . We kept about 25 of them . Starting at about 38 . We are now at 63 . With some good new young members . And a few oldies .
Mostly newer lower tiers . Several older upper tiers . All seeming to fit in well .
Nice to be back above 60 again for the 3rd time . Could use a few more . They will come .
What happened to the other 25 ?
Once a recruit is accepted . There are several easy tasks to do before they become full members . And a couple givens .
The givens are to friend myself and our tournament director . I will try a couple few times and then stop to see it they ever attempt to . Of course until we / they are friends . There are no PM messages going on .
The 3 tasks are very simple .
1) Respond to the CC forum welcome link that I post on their wall .
PLEASE WELCOME NEW RECRUIT BILLYBOB . It is our way of shaking your hand and helping you to feel more at ease . And at home .
Many members reply and welcome each new recruit .
2) Play a CC tourney
3) Register in our cool and safe website .
That's it . Do those 3 and you become a full member .
After that . I trust that they will be accountable to be somewhat of a visible good CC member . They are on their own .
But those 3 tasks . Lol . Some would rather die . They will do 1 or 2 of them in any combination .
Then there are those that never play a CC tourney . Never respond to my PM's . Much less one CC forum welcome . Never register in the site .
Obviously not good fits for the CC .
Once a player is in . If they are new or somewhat new to WGT or even CC's .
The first half of page 1 of the CC forum sticky threads are filled with dozens of topical links , and tips and UIRL's . With every thing one could ever want to know about WGT and tiering up . Ranked and non counting rounds . Saturation . Unlimited play tourneys , match play , stroke play , alt shot , etc .
How to get to your ACCOUNT SETTINGS and CONTACT INFO . To be sure that you have the right settings to enable communication . Because if it looks like this .
There ain't no connecting going on .
Some still can't find that page .
So if they want info . Page 1 in the CC forum has it up the ying yang . There is no search feature in the CC forums . So the only way to find a topic of interest is to copy and paste the link into the sticky thread for that type of topic .
For other new players that already got it like that . Been around you know . They can just start playing any of our various CC tourneys , Stroke brackets , CTTH brackets , CTTH challenges , Daily BLITZ , CC vs CC Interplay Or other formats and events . Enough to keep plenty busy and have fun .
Unfortunately I can no longer boast about all the fun interaction amongst CC mates in multi player matches . Practically non existent .
Back in the day . That's all we did . We / I loved it . Couldn't get enough .
Different group or generation or something these days . Don't know what they're missing .
Not a money CC . We have very few credit purse rounds . We could . We just don't .
Mostly a place to work on your game with the well made unlimited play CC tourneys . Made different every time . Helps to learn a course inside and out .
And many other formats and events to keep one challenged and busy .
Pretty simple casual environment . Where every member is equally the same with out regards to tier or , longevity , age , gender , hair color , or any hair . Everyone has a voice .
Hermits are not acceptable . One must have a minimal amount of visibility .
But that's not too hard .
