I have been playing the game now for getting on for 9 years. This account I post under was as a result of losing everything when I changed PCs and using FB as the platform to play through. WGT wouldn't - for some reason - allow me to link my original account to FB so I had to start another. They resolved this issue when the platform changed, but it was as the new account and none of the old account was taken into account. If you have a problem with this, because you seem to have a problem with most things I write, I'd be happy to show you an audit trail of emails I had with WGT prior to creating the BrianCheese account. But, don't let me stop you from being Dr A Hole, eh?
My argument, which has been consistent, regardless of peoples' lack of understanding of basic English language is now - I still believe the game is fixed, but in a way that either forces you to spend money or makes you accept that where you are is where you are going to be without the finances to 'improve' your game by improving your clubs.
As someone ages ago on this thread mentioned, I'm doing ok considering I had just one premium club; well through surveys, etc, I have managed to upgrade 3 clubs and subsequently have quickly gone from Tour Pro to Master and closing in on Tour Master. I have even managed to place in a couple of tournaments; my game has improved through spending money more so than practice.
I also pointed out elsewhere that as a (former) 4 handicap golfer who played with a makeshift set of clubs cobbled together, a person is able to attain a certain level of play - a 4 handicap in my case - through knowing your clubs and this aspect is removed from WGT to a certain extent because the model of the game is for them to make money. Let's be clear on something, which Wupta failed to understand - I'm no longer complaining about the game being fixed to this extent, I have accepted it and will enjoy WGT through gritted teeth at times because it allows me to play golf, something I can no longer do in real life - it is, AFAIK, the only game in town and with my limited time and resources I will build my clubs up and hopefully continue to improve, to make my enjoyment less frustrating.
What I fail to understand is the elitist attitude of certain people, yourself included, who feel they have the moral right to be mean and discourteous to people who maybe aren't in the know as much as you, or, more importantly, making snide comments about something you don't have the full knowledge about - people in this case. it paints a rather unfortunate picture of the kind of person you might be.
Thanks to El3n1 for at least understanding the motives behind my original post and for defending me while others found it gleeful to be horrible; some of you could learn a thing or two from him, not that you'd be inclined to though.
