Again, the distain is pretty hilarions, I play on both and I like both and there is no reason they can't be part of the same game/platform.
This expectation that nothing, not even something like your player avatar (which has zero impact on the overall performance of the game) is not going to change at all is just funny, games change and update all the time for better graphics etc....WGT actually is probably long overdue for both platforms in terms of updating some of the graphics things.
But the "us" vs. "them" superiority attitude is dumb. We all want the game to be good and together we have a much louder voice with more impact. So rather than acting like mobile players are somehow beneath PC players why not respect the fact that we are all humans playing a game and work together to influence WGT to make the game the best it can be.
As a country club director who's heavily involved in running a club, it would be much simpler and more fun if there were no cross platform issues and if the best features of both platforms could be combined to make one awesome game that is playable by all without cross platform issues.
Very very well said. Can't possibly agree more!
I still remember even the mobile version looked pretty 'serious' and 'professional' when it first came out and that's the way I like it personally, too. I'm sure many mobile players including myself got disappointed when the company, especially after being merged by TopGolf, decided and started to turn the app version more into cartoonish arcade type sometime back in 2016.
Not sure but I believe the reason behind such a decision was to target and attract younger folks, rashly presuming that young people would always prefer 'light' & 'casual' stuff which is not true at all. Marketing people often make this kind mistakes. They categorize and generalize too much (and wrongly) while having blind faith in statistics.
Probably their marketing tools and stats indicate them that most mobile users, regardless of age and gender, prefer a casual game they can play short on the fly "en déplacement". Now the thing is WGT was not born to be and cannot be a casual arcade game to start with. Despite of it, mobile users WILL keep on playing if the game itself is really well made (which is the case of this wonderful game) AND even if it isn't what they were initially looking for. Trust me, I know because that's how I ended up with it. The mobile new WGT, therefore, doesn't have to look like some sort of casual arcade stuff as it is currently.
As pcastleberg mentioned, now it is pointless to divide PC and mobile, and it's time to stop the stupid childish superiority complex. The game will be evolving as it has so far and the best we can do is to provide our thoughts, suggestions, feedbacks and opinions to the company so that the game will hopefully become more like or lean towards something the majority of us want it to be.
Play well and above all, enjoy, everyone!
