I am a Director at The BattleField CC. We are one of WGTs top 10 clubs in both Turf War and Clash. I completely understand the need to eliminate excessive abuse of free credit advertisements. WGT must perform their due diligence or risk being held legally liable for being complicit in defrauding the advertisers. Being fully transparent, I am not innocent in this matter either.
That said, limiting free credits to only 150 per day (75 videos) without lowering price points on country club passes, equipment, and balls is asinine. Does WGT have any plans to make the game we all enjoy affordable?
One sleeve of top end balls costs $13 for about 300 hits (assuming you don’t lose a ball). 50 passes costs $17.
For the best players, one turf war is roughly 2 sleeves and 50 passes. That’s $43 every couple days offset by a measly 300 credits.
Then there is clash every 2 weeks. The top clubs play hundreds of country club passes and countless sleeves of balls. The clash awards, quite frankly, are horrendous and I am a member of a club that finishes top 10 every clash. It is easy for one player to expend well over $50 on a single clash.
This doesn’t even count general play in tournaments, spending passes to start a turf war, and non-sanctioned matches between clubs/friends.
How does WGT plan to address the price point issue? Without the ability to watch videos for free credits at an acceptable rate, the game is no longer affordable for the vast majority of people. I thoroughly enjoy Clash and Turf War, but my participation will now be scaled back significantly until WGT begins thinking of their customers rather than greedy, ridiculous profit margins.
