    Hi WGT,

    There are lots of Top players especially who joined before 2010 and made this "Simple Game" a "Great Game". Having said that, they are also still full on with the latest Etour n other live formats, if in case that's a standard procedure. Hopefully you will recognize them as well n give them the credit that they are merited for.

    Naming a few will be one-sided n will be considered as partiality. But let's not forget them. Looking forward to see the future chosen list of players.

    Ty

    - Carl

    Casey - Really? This is the same player that came to the forums complaining about the previously mentioned Hall of Famer showing absolute disrespect on something he knew nothing about. Not to mention several months ago, this player was in the Forums threatening to shut down GOGF simply because a gift recipient did not thank him. Oh sure, that sounds like someone deserving of a promotion.

    With all due respect Don , I never disrespected the previously mentioned Hall Of Famer , Nor did I threaten to shut down the GOGF for someone not posting a thank you  . I do however think it is appropriate for someone to post a thank you for receiving gifts  I am not asking to be in the Hall Of Fame . I am not a Tour Champion and I consider myself an average player . I rarely play red tee tournaments .

    Young46 is one of the best players out there and I applaud his success . I have several of his videos on our web site . There are some others who should be considered for the Hall Of Fame , I am not one of them . When I seen the post that mentioned me I expected to see comments like yours . I understand where you are coming from and you have a point . I don't need to be a Hall Of Famer . I'm happy where I am .

      As to the below .

    TopShelf2010:
    Casey - Really? This is the same player that came to the forums complaining about the previously mentioned Hall of Famer showing absolute disrespect on something he knew nothing about.

      I don't know what that is . I don't disrespect players / members . At the most I mildly defend myself .

    TopShelf2010:
    Not to mention several months ago, this player was in the Forums threatening to shut down GOGF simply because a gift recipient did not thank him.

      Never happened . Wasn't me .

    TopShelf2010:
    GoFund_PDB - 'nough said.

      My GoFundMe . Completely legitimate . No shame . Nothing to apologize for .

    <><><><><><><><><>

      No need to defend the remarks on Casey . His merits and honor stand on their own .

    TopShelf2010:

    Nancy - for her astonishing amount of XP's

    Henry - For his relentless pursuit of friends

    Deena - for her natural ability to over analyze everything from making a bowl of cereal to quantum physics.

      Valid points . There are many others . WGT is waiting for your list .

    " I am not asking to be in the Hall Of Fame"

    ...I agree that no one should ask for such a prestigious honor...it cheapens it for everyone.  But Champion said the criteria has not yet been set. If the HOF is just for TCs that win majors, then it will be easy. I am merely suggesting that other important criteria should be considered....criteria that Casey meets in spades. Integrity, helping others, giving back to the game, selflessness, etc.

    Oh really?

    CEverett12:
    Great event and fun to watch . However it seems they bend the rules for some guy who show up late , Obviously an attempt to showboat . Hey if you cant make it on time then you should be disqualified . This is not the first time he has done this . Clearly a move for attention .

    Hall of Fame?  Which players have really excelled at this game, who do we miss from the forums, our clubs or just for a friendly game?  

    Andyson is gone and remembered through players' efforts. Most of us know of someone they played against that has died, some we knew well some only by username but all are missed by other players and ignored by wgt.

    There's all those who have given to others so that less fortunate players can enjoy the game too.

    ScottHope has helped many, certainly hundreds and probably more, play the game smoothly often when wgt threw obstacles to that in thier way.

    The measure of excellence must surely be the major flash-based tournaments that have been what the game has been about for the last 13 years. A Hall of Fame, in all cases (except one) I know of would reflect on that period.

    The main tournament winners are listed below and there are some that really stand out for me. 

    Fmagnets started playing shortly before the 2013 VUSO  yet managed 13th and since then has finished 2nd, 2nd, 3rd equal, 5th, 4th, 5th and 1st by a record margin. In the VT Mags won about twice as many times as the next best and was never out of the first three on the seasons list, usually winning. A win in the VUSA, three (or is it four?) World Cups, certainly never in a losing team. Top earner and lots I can’t remember right now.   

    Poldimaier won the VUSO in 2014 and 2015, 2nd this year and third equal in 2016. .  There’s also JoeMaverick with his back to back wins and other prominent finishes, StoneColdKiller, BolloxinBruges in 2010 won the VUSO and was runner-up in the Virtual Open. AgentBrown always seems to be there or thereabouts. Great names from the early days like AvatarLee and on and on.  Then there are great players who don’t play the Majors as they’re not eligible for the prize, Ujjbnjk would be prominent among these. There are many more and those above have won more than I’ve mentioned but the point is there are many that have really achieved in the flash game.

    There’s Finny and all he’s done with the WC. Simon with the Ryder Cup as well as being one of the best players, winning a VUSA and many good finishes in the events the best players do want to do well in, the etour.  Which of course brings us to golfx3, what he’s done in that is remarkable. Apologies to the many not listed. 

    The CC’s that have been at the top forever, set up (I think) by Farfoo, Beryman and BolloxinBruges.  Dazza, Bubbs and various people at SEL and lots more in other CC’s have done great work too. 

    These are just a few of the many who could have been chosen for the hall of fame honour but what do we get?  They announce during the final game of the live series  

    WGT Champion

    ​Congrats Yiannis on the win today. Congrats Young46 for winning the season and becoming the first ever Hall of Fame player in WGT

    Who knew this was to be part of the live series before it started?  Who knew this was to be part of the Live Series before Young46 had already won it?  Was it decided when it was seen he couldn’t be caught?  If it had been Yiannis would he now be the first Hall of Fame player?  Hmmm.  Young46 was certainly not surprised at the news. Did golfx3 and others know when he/they missed some events?

    To be fair Young46 did also “win” the VUSO.  Weeks and weeks of qualifying, four championship rounds and he finished nine strokes behind Fmagnets. All of these rounds could be played on flash. Yes, wgt said there would be a single round between the top 10, they didn’t say it would be on the unfinished EA platform only.  When did they tell the 10 players?  Well that probably varies, a lot.

    This from Poldimaier’s status  “ USGA Open: NOT 1 word in the rules concerning a mandatory use of the new EA version! Just 1 day to learn it....impossible”

    Yet Young 46 has shown the commentators the course sometime before, surely something that could be done by someone not playing in the tournament, seeing the pin positions etc.  If he is to have the (slight?) advantage of seeing and playing the course then it should be limited to that and not be a tournament set up to run until the shootout and be unlimited play. I noticed during his Hall of Fame interview he said he spends much more time practicing than playing.  I’m also undecided whether the chat there is about him always playing last in this sort of event is relevant.

    So Poldimaier had a day or two notice and Young46 had a month or two; that means Young46 knew before the championship rounds, I bet Poldimaier wishes he did then he may not have bothered.

    Someone with three Monthly wins in the VT, a couple of 5th’s in the VUSO, and a win in something some of the best players pay little or no attention to (why would the best players spend lots of time on a tournament that gives credits as a prize when wgt have taken away any opportunity for them to get anything from these credits?) and a shootout in a game that isn’t the finished article when he may or may not have had advantages. 

    No offence to Young46 he’s a very very good player, and seemingly an ever better salesman, but all of the players mentioned for their playing skill could lay some sort of claim to be the best in the flash game at some point, I can’t see when he could do the same.

    I’m not objecting to wgt using Young46 to promote their new game, that’s nothing to do with me, I just don’t like how they are doing it. Hall of Fame means something to some people; true legends of the game who have left their mark on it in some way be it through their play, their words, their kindness, generosity, etc. etc.  If you had done this by calling him WGT Young46 that would have been fine by me. 

    VUSO Winners

    2011 StoneColdKiller  (119 at RSG won it by 1 shot)

    VUSA

    2018 Fmagnets

    2019 Birchi

    The Virtual Tour Summary (Full results on a seperate post)

    Between 2014 and 2019 there were 72 monthly tournaments in this as well as championship events, the full list is in a separate post but, as a brief summary, here are the players that won at least three of these.  Again apologies for any I’ve missed, misspelling or mistakes in general, I don’t want to spend more time checking things again.  Some other players may have also excelled in this but not at the top tier (which is all I included). There’s only so much that can be included.

    Fmagnets:  13 monthly wins.  Also won the 2014 Tour Championship and Live play off, and three of the four 2015 quarterly Championships.  I think it's one sp playoff and 5 out of 6 MP games against the other top players.

    Ujjbnjk: 7 monthly wins.

    Dansamcan: 5 Monthly wins

    JoeMaverick: 4 monthly wins

    Andivo: 3 monthly wins.

    Young46: 3 monthly wins

    (I've not included banned players in the summary)

    Only one person mentioned in this, far too long, post is honoured with being in the Hall of Fame, why is that? I think it’s what wgt want is the short answer but I wonder who the customers would like to see in a Hall of Fame?

      This is the most comprehensive list of accomplished WGT golfing GR8's I have ever seen .

      These would have to be very high on the list of criteria as candidates for Hall Of Fame consideration .

      There are also many other WGT long time GR8's that have other outstanding contributions and achievements . That should also be in the criteria as candidates for Hall Of Fame consideration .

      GR8 list DP .
