Let me back up a little . I was very open minded and intrigued when PCEA came out .
I came away thinking they did a very good job transitioning the Mobile platform to PC . Some features like the photo-realistic landscapes of the courses are every bit as good as the Flash . If not better .
So . Good job .
Having been a somewhat Mobile player for years . I find personal issues with PCEA that I had with Mobile .
One of the big draws in Flash for me . Is the ease of interaction between players , CC's , events and the whole multimedia process that allows such fast and thorough communication and interaction . That is big for me .
It doesn't look to me like any of that will be happening in PCEA . Unless of course I happen to run into players from Flash that are like minded . So far that hasn't happened at all .
I have mentioned that I now get some small responses from the players I come across on PCEA . Really a big turn off for me .
Okay . So that is out .
Next . I thought I might have a chance at Tour Legend . Eventually in Flash . Concentrating . Getting within 1/2 " with my putts gives or gave me hope .
I really tried a lot of solo rounds on PCEA . All of them to be ended before the end of the 9th hole . More strokes over par than I would be in Flash .
So not enough friendly interaction .
Not able to continue on my path to Tour Legend .
Oh yes . I almost forgot . Competitiveness . I like good healthy , positive competition . What's with these snippy , arrogant way to competitive young players in the coin games ? Lol .
I will not be playing a lot of PCEA . I will see what happens after December . Maybe another golf program .
Blink of an eye . Nothing to persevere . Persevere is what all of us that have been playing since 2012 or before . The " TRAILBLAZERS " ( pre 2010 ) have set an over the top example of perseverance .
For myself after investigating PCEA open mindedly . I have not found that HOOK .
Earlier in a post I mentioned a " dramatic change " . I was not referring to Flash to PCEA . But rather
when I lost my hardwire ethernet high speed internet
landline COX cable in 2016 . I had to switch to wifi .
That was the game changer for me . And still is a big problem for me . Where I live wifi is essentially dead 90% of the time . It doesn't effect posting . But it most certainly effects playing .
I actually am happy for PCers that have found PCEA will suit them .
My disappointment is with WGT . I feel they failed a large group of players . Players that feel this game is coming to an end . If Flash is able to continue . It will likely be dead in the water . No updates or improvement , fixing of glitches .
For many . A better alternative has not been offered .
