    Ladychipper:

    BlueEyes,

    The main reason higher levels play in the Chelsea room is to earn coins and to get experience playing.  Some of us are use to playing regular stroke play, alt shot, match play and CTTH games on a PC and are trying to gain experience in the coin rooms and getting use to the mobile version of WGT.  You can't play the higher coin rooms if you do not have the coins to do so. 

    I have been beaten in there by pros and such because they are more use to this type of play. Trying to earn coins to upgrade apparel as well. 

    So please don't be fussing about us higher tier levels just trying to catch up.  We all have the option to play any coin room we want to play.  Also, the higher tiers in the Chelsea room have to play from the very back tees so it is more challenging for them.

     

     

     

      She has the best and most clear explanation . Until one has vast experience with all the formats that develop ones skills.

    CTTH's

    BLITZes

    Alt Shot

    Match Play

      Are very important . But not as important as Ranked Rounds . RR's are what records the stats and guides and allows one to lower their averages to move up in tier to be eligible for more optimal equipment .

      Ranked Rounds record the stats . These stats :

    Stroke Play Score Average
    Best 9-Hole Round
    Best 18-Hole Round
    Total Ranked Rounds Played
    Total Holes-In-One
    Total Double Eagles
    Total Eagles
    Total Birdies
    Total Pars
    Total Bogeys
    Total Double Bogeys
    Total Others
    Par 3 Score Avg.
    Par 4 Score Avg.
    Par 5 Score Avg.
    Skill Challenge Avg. Score
    Longest Drive
    Avg. Driving Distance
    Driving Accuracy
    Green in Regulation %
    Avg. Distance to Pin
    Holed Approach Shots
    Sand Save %
    Scrambling %
    Longest Putt Made

    Putting Avg. Per Round
    One Putt %
    Two Putt %
    Three Putts or More %
    % Putts Made from 0 - 5 Feet
    % Putts Made from 5 - 10 Feet
    % Putts Made from 10 -25 Feet
    % Putts Made from 25 - 50 Feet
    % Putts Made from 50+ Feet

    Total Putts

    Stroke Play Score Average
    Stroke Play Top 10 Finishes
    Stroke Play Top 100 Finishes
    Total Ranked Rounds Played
    Skill Challenge Tournaments Entered
    Skill Challenge Top 10 Finishes
    Skill Challenge Top 100 Finishes

    VS. Amateur
    VS. Pro
    VS. Tour Pro
    VS. Master
    VS. Tour Master
    VS. Legend
    VS. Tour Legend

    VS. Champion

    Alternate Shot

      Most of this is only possible in ranked rounds . Which allow us to get MORE out of this experience .

      So Coin rooms are only good for practice and experience . As are CTTH's , Alt Shot , Match Play , They count for nothing but experience .

     

      Then there are hundreds more awards for

     

    Master Your Game

    COURSES

    MATCH PLAY

    STROKE PLAY

    CLOSEST TO THE HOLE .

     

      Sorry but there is so much more than coins . But the coins do attempt parity . With tiered rooms and random green speeds . Those do a GR8 job of leveling .

      I think the coin rooms are GR8 and I play them everyday . But I have no more I want to gain . They are just fun . All good all fun all the time .

      I also play at least 5 Single Player Unlimited Play Stroke Play rounds per day . But I never finish them .

    Berrima:

    Playing someone who out drives me by 100 yards and can stop the ball on a dime is totally contrary to the fundamental principles of golf, which uses a handicap system to allow fair play amongst players of all abilities.

    you're a Tour Pro at level 79. With an 84 average. Your driver is level 22. other gear is all hack and amateur level gear. 

    your Green in Regulation stat is an abyssmal 38%. 

    Sand save and scrambling stats are both equally horrid. 

    your problem is you are a bad player who also happens to have beginner gear. 

    Solution: put the time in to learn how to play. Join a CC that people will help you and teach you what you need to know. Ask questions on the various aspects of how to be better.  AND upgrade your gear to some solid gear.  you can have the best wedges. you can get drivers that only put you 5-10 yards behind. better 3w. almost to some really quality irons at level 84. and level up your apparel if you are playing coin games.

    i mean as bad as it sounds this is cold honesty. you're not losing because they are outdriving you by 90 to 100 yards. the rest of your game other than driving is in the crapper too.

    Fortunately it's all fixable. just takes time and effort.

    I have ONLY played WGT Golf for 4 Weeks (I did play Wii Tiger Woods for months and Real Golf for 45+ years casually).

    THAT Said; If all the above were TRUE, then "How On Earth" did I make the "Master" tier with ONLY;

    1. Playing WGT Golf for 4 weeks (I did play 5 to 7 hours a day), And
    2. Being Level 58, And,
    3. Only 14 Ranked Rounds

    ALSO, I emailed Member Support and asked how this happened with only this number of ranked rounds, and they replied; (I quote);

    "It isn't just ranked rounds that determine your skill level, but it was pretty apparent that you are a good enough player that reached the requirements necessary to reach the next tier"

    SO, bottom line, this would imply you don't need ranked rounds "PERIOD" to achieve any Tier.

    I'm very interested in anyone's reply here (especially Legends & Champions).

    Legend tee is the ultimate gap between average joe player and experimented player. That said, from Legend, it's much harder to reach new ranks. From Legend : 500 rounds to TL then 750 rounds to Champion, etc.

    I experimented the sudden jump when being a rookie and it's a real thing. I reached Master at L42 then Legend at L74.

    But i can ensure you that these ''gimmies'' aren't do a thing when you gonna reach Legend. You gotta work a lot from that point, even if you win plenty of tournaments and stuff.

    Other things are calculated behind the ranked rounds required. We just don't know exactly what are these.

    On the mobile game there have always been unpublished ways to progress the tiers, without having to play ranked rounds , often related to playing well in the coin rooms . The traditional game was always linked to ranked rounds and lots has already been published about this , the merging of the two parts of WGT , has made it more apparent that there are still differences. My advice for what it is worth would be just to play to enjoy , and hope you don’t get bogged down with the minutiae within the game . All the best

      Yes after dropping the ball . They had to randomly it seems find ways to advance these new players not playing ranked rounds .

      It appears they had no idea what to do . What ever it is . It is not consistent or reliable .

      All that being said . And now finding out the actual predetermined and general protocols that the still majority of WGTers have to use .

      There are now many less questions for you . As this is the only answer .

      This chart is as simplified as it gets .

    In addition to what bossbird said, for the first couple of tiers you can be promoted based solely on your Level.  The ones I am aware of are:

    • Hack to Amateur at Level 20
    • Amateur to Pro at Level 30
    • Pro to Tour Pro at Level 50

    Beyond Tour Pro, there are different criteria for promotion for players who play primarily coin games.  Only WGT knows what those criteria are.

    Im guessing that the 66 you shot on RSG on July 10 was a Tour Pro Ready go tournament. and you won it. Any wins in RGs will promote you to the next tier until you get to Legend.
