    LOL what multiple format skills? There are only two that count: stroke play and head-to-head. Everything else is just salad dressings. I think what Mythanatos was trying to say is that top Mobile players are very, very good at hth play, something that Flash players might lack. Sure they’re very good during stroke play, but competing live against others is another matter.

    But in various formats, flash players play against each other all the time. So,I think most will have plenty of experience competing live against others.

    No shortage of "perspective" here... goodness people.

    pmm711 (paul) prefaced his findings on players with 150 averages. 

    That is a very specific subset of those who play WGT... it is NOT reflective of ALL mobile players, it is NOT reflective of those who play on both platforms, and it is simply observations he wanted to share about the different type experience these players have on WGT.

    Are his numbers exact... hard to say, but I did not read them as being exact figures but reflecting an observation of a very specific type of player he encounters in lower stakes coin rooms.

    I have actually encountered people in the mobile coin rooms that have read post I wrote in the forums.  I started out on mobile, but I was drawn to the forums because I wanted to figure out how people were able to score so crazy low scores in this game.  The forum is a huge resource for helping players advance.  Those who don't miss out on a lot of helpful tips.

    Mythanatos (Sid) reply was possibly a little harsh, but he was also speaking of an entirely different segment of the mobile players - the elite coin room specialist who have built up hundreds of millions or billions of coins.  Many of those players have extensive experience on both platforms.  

    As I see it, both players are referencing different aspects of the game.  Paul's numbers will not be reflective anymore of the players Sid encounters as Sid's observations of Bellagio are going to be reflective of the players Paul was directly referencing.  Has he encountered those players?  Yes, but he doesn't do so regularly anymore because playing low stakes would be wasting valuable ball hits for coins he doesn't need.  

    The game is very diverse so it is very challenging to find any statement that will ever fully encapsulate all types of players, except... people who are drawn to WGT are people who enjoy golfing games.  That may be all you find in common with all of them.  Every thing else could possibly be up to debate. 

    No need to be overly critical of one another.  

    I have noticed from a couple LIVE streaming events by WGT, more high profile, and even professional level players are interacting on WGT... We might all want to be cognizant of the image or approachability we present in our public discourse.   Just a thought!

    pmm711:

    Mythanatos:
    at least get to where you can play 10 games of Bellagio in a night every night and meet the top 200 or so people that play in it. 

    200 Top Players are merely a tip of the iceberg in terms of % of players in this game (.0002 or less).  The person who needs to learn perspective is you.  99.9% of players...well you’re obviously “too good” for them.  The view from the top...I thought would be a broader view and not one as a thoroughbred wearing blinders.  Elitism lives and breathes within WGTland.  My God.

    actually i posted it exactly how i did as bait. knowing you'd post that.

    See you just aren't thinking. at all.

    because it's not like you are playing with lower than level 80 players in PC version. It's not like you're conversing with them. You have no context to compare back and forth. and even on the extreme rare case that you do with clubmates that's not 30 different people a night.

    as i said perspective. Learn it before popping off. 

     

    incidentally the elitism is on your part. You are basing your judgments on playing with people lower level and skill than yourself. Im merely saying play with people of your own skill before being pompous.

    Wow, I can’t believe this thread. I’ve been playing on WGT for a year now, all mobile because I don’t have a computer to play the PC version, did you ever think maybe people like me are out there?

    Anyways, I’ll continue to enjoy this GAME with these other mobile players, as well as interact with PC players in my club and others who can look at us all who are just out here to have a good time playing a game.

    Peace out.

    Mike
