      Below there are 9 different match or game formats listed . These are all very fun and exellent formats for us to enjoy here at WGT . Each one of these formats would not be one that would have any way to record a round that would be able to a effect ones average in anyway .

    **( of course with the exception of match play rounds up to the level of Legend  . After which point would no longer have any effect one way or another , up or down on ones average ). 

      This is all correct ( above ) 

      I have been asked this question frequently . The above is the only way I can figure out to explain it .

      For instance . If one decided to play any one of those 9 formats for a period of say 1 year exclusively . During that year , said persons average would do nothing . Neither go up or go down .

      Does not affect me at all one way or another . Just trying to confirm this to be true . FYI

     MATCH PLAY

    MATCH PLAY CHALLENGE

    ALTERNATE SHOT

    BLITZ

    BLITZ CHALLENGE

    SKINS GAME

    HOLE-IN-ONE CHALLENGES

    CLOSEST-TO-THE-HOLE CHALLENGE

    PRACTICE ROUNDS

    *BO PAR 3

    *BO PAR 5 * MOBILE COIN ROOMS

    * can be included as rounds that do not effect ones average , but are stroke and ranked , but not counted toward saturation .

    ** 

    pdb1:

      Try this tip . Up until the level of Legend . The fastest way to tier up is to challenge players of any tiers above your own to a scored match play round . You will win some . Some may even let you win . WGT  scores you with the highest margin of points on your average when you beat a tier above your own . Depending on the tier and margin of win . You could gain 3 or 4 points that would drop your average 3 or 4 points right there . It is the only way match play can effect your average . Like i said . The quickest way to tier up . 

      Not to mention . You will meet obscure players with the " find a game " feature searching for higher level match play opponents . Players with 15,000 match play rounds and 10,000 stroke play rounds . One right after another . It is incredible . 

      Other than that you could waste a lot of time if you were to play 11 shades of grey

    PD I do think you are over complicating this:

    The known:

    RRs count for average (exc BoP3/5 as all done);

    MP (scored or challenge) will zoom you to Legend, but once L they will not zoom you to TL.;

    Earnings also affect your progress, but sadly WGT seem to choose to leave MPC earnings out of the equation.

    The X Factor:

    WGT will not, for good reason I think, share more.

    After that just chill.  Go have a smoke, play some guitar or even WGT :)

      Lol once again my approach to to what I am inquiring couldn't be clearer to me . Again it obviously evades others as I did not really go into detail as to why I wanted confirmation that the 9 games above do nothing to decrease or increase ones average one way or another . 

     As also is my clear awareness of the various types of games that actually do move ones average one way or another . Lol not concerned about those in this thread .

      FYI my quest to inform  various uninformed CC members I keep running into little issues that are stunning to discover some members ( WGT & CC ) that just don't know some stuff . In that quest to inform . As I have found and mentioned before . There just may not be any information written specifically pointing out what could be crucial facts and or general knowledge . I don't think any of it is written . We just have to wing it or guess . Because whatever it is sure ain't written in the FAQ's . Lol . NVRFKNMIND.

      I'm just sayin

    I just unexpectedly went to Championship tier (thought I needed a 58 average, but it was 59). What is the saturation number of games?
