In my humble opinion a seasoned player would be one who achieved rank and stats by playing ranked rounds which was the ONLY way to improve on your average score, when i started playing the game in 2011, but that all changed with the introduction of the mobile game, i have asked wgt several times how players with little and in some cases zero ranked games achieve an ave score of 64.00! to be told by wgt that players averages are adjusted according to there scores in coin games! yet if I score say a minus 4/5 and on a few occasions -8 in coin games my average does not move by a single decimal point.
So when I speak of seasoned players I mean no disrespect to anyone who plays the game but I do take umbrage at this who manipulate the standing by making no attempt to improve on the ave instead happy to remain at tour pro level yet continue to gain level by level until you get to (as I encountered one night) a level 135 tour pro with all the top equipment and ball to match, needless to say game was over by the 5th hole I couldn't even compete.
So to sum up the seasoned player doesn't need seasoning but a level playing field one were 1 rule applies to all would suffice, but no doubt in your EXPERT opinion i will be wrong
It is this simple . Early on in this Mobile/Coin play . A new algorythm was applied to those players that played extensive and exclusive Coin play .
Nothing was mentioned to them regarding any ranked rounds or the WGT.com protocol .
Those players with the Mobile/Coin algorythm progress and promote according to the number of Coin rounds played and played successfully .
It is of no fault of the players that that is their method .
Your observations are not wrong .
This has been/is/will be a problem .
I have no idea how it will be sorted out .
The Mobile/Coin algorythm does not apply to players already playing ranked rounds .
And for Mobile/Coin players . Once they play a certain number of ranked rounds . Their algorythm no longer applies .
Meaning eventually they will end up playing WGT.com ranked rounds protocol . To be able to continue progressing .
I'm sure many of those will be none too happy . Having not been informed about this .
But this also means that there are " seasoned " Coin players with high numbers of Coin rounds . But their tier , average , or Level or score history will not reflect that .
Not their fault .
