When is WGT going to change the way you rank up tier levels. WGT ranked games and other ranked games ,should be the only way to go up tier levels.
why do you care?
because really there is no reason to tier up. I made it a point for years to rarely play a red tee tourney. Concentrated on custom courses and Ready gos and other WGT tourneys. and alt shot games. The hardest conditions. with the express reason of staying a legend as long as possible to maximize my coin return.
I shake my head at the people that rush it and play thousands of red tee tourneys. They get to Champ and now Tour Champ and don't really have the game for it.
They recently bumped me from TL to Champ with only 69 RRs played during that time. Are they correct from a skill level? probably. I was happy where i was though.
Look tons of people have the title that took the path of least resistance. So if you're butthurt that your ego is somehow bruised if others get it too then don't be.
Tier doesn't necessarily reflect skill.
