    el3n1:

    I am not a big fan of apparel, especially from the forward tees - BUT, I use it because I can still play a much cheaper ball with maxed out apparel pretty much the same as I would a much more expensive ball without apparel.  

    Yup that is also true. There's plenty of holes where you're dropping strokes from the back tees if you don't use ball attributes, those little things are absolutely stacked.. probably because ball sales are big. Both the driver/3w distance and even iron spin allow me to close the gap a little bit, I'm able to compete against tour champs playing 1k cred+/sleeve with the rock. I don't mind my opponent hitting 2 clubs less than me if I'm hitting a decent club instead of a scuffed 3w or not even reaching, the tees have not been balanced around these boosts.

    I'm not the only one either, if I drop to Rio or under I start seeing a lot of decent players with the trusty rock or maybe wgt SDs or some 33 callys etc. I think apparel helps people playing with subpar clubs or ball in this case more than maxed out players.

    el3n1:

    so apparel may end up costing WGT in the long run with ball sales.

    Shhh.. They are watching, don't let them know

      Yes . That and CLASHES .

    Do people actually use creds on passes? I see like 2/3 clubs going nuts for the golden putter but the rest don't care too much because there's no prize incentive at all, just stay in the top 100 and you're done. I had never bothered with clashes but I thought the deer statues on this last one were cute.

    I was able to place my club of inactive members in the 80s just by playing 9 out of the 11 games possible and posting some superpass rounds on each that were not impressive at all. Used free passes to fish for the bunker save% and long putt/approach holeout. It was very clear to me that players in almost all clubs didn't care in the slightest, I both understand and share that sentiment.

    EDIT: Now that you saw that . I can delete it .it was for others as well .

    Oh I didn't check when you wrote that and I don't have e-mail alerts or anything, mostly come here to update info...damn I missed a secret message =(

    pdb1:

    He said:

    I was pants ( he was pants )

    Forgive my ignorance . But what the hell did he mean ? Was it some excuse ? He was a mid level Tour Pro 80 something average . Quite good . As most of them are .

    Humm that's quite the riddle indeed... I was pants implies that, at the time of typing that, he was no longer pants. But the fact that at some point in that game he actually was pants has to be relevant to the result of the game, or otherwise he wouldn't have mentioned it. Was he already pants before the game started? What stopped him being pants? Is there a pattern behind prime numbers? We might never know but these are definitely important questions for humanity, this man could very well be a mad genius

    Going by your "was it some excuse?" approach, I'll say he forgot to type the word down. He was pants down, taking a dump while playing, not fully focused, hence why he lost... He felt compelled to type it because his bowel movements might have ruined the greatest wgt match ever played. Coins were lost, lives were ruined

    Yep. That's what I thought it must be. Thanks for the clarity.

    Are Apparel Bonuses Added Together?

    I will use putting forgiveness as an example.  If my hat gives me 32% forgiveness and my shoes give me 22% forgiveness, does that mean I have a total of 54%, or does the higher of the two override the lower?  What I am trying to figure out is if I get 32% from my hat can I forgo the 22% from the shoes and pick a different pair that gives me more distance on my driver.

      Yes . For a good many years ( the first 100 Clashes ) . There would be between 4000 & 5000 CC's participating in each Clash .

      It was a little different from the weekly tight nit fight for the top 100 .

      In the Clashes though . The top 100 was insignificant in as you say there were no prizes .

      Even the hard fought battle to place 3rd . Only offered a set of balls . I know a couple few CC owners that were shocked to find that out . Once they had achieved 3rd place . Suddenly realizing how not worth it all the passes , balls and rounds were .

      The weekly and the bi monthly Clashes . Demanded extremely enormous , high pass purchases from each CC to maintain the high status . The more passes , the more rounds . The more rounds , the more balls . Resulting in excessively high points .

    222/500, or 500/222?

     

    What do these numbers even mean? I was pretty sure that I knew what was going on until the front number started getting bigger than the 2nd number. I see these Apparel items leveled up during sponsor box opening, but then they are completely different when you go to your Apparel...

    There has got to be somewhere explaining all this, as that seems to be the only damn thing coins even are used for...

    These fractions don't seem to make a bit of sense as they are thrown all over the game, and in different quantities as if only random numbers to only look at.

    Anyone know?

    The "quote" feature left off which question I was replying to, sorry about that... This is what I'm curious about...

      My question is . How is it they ( WGT ) can manipulate with the forgiveness %'s like that with any degree of seriousness . I don't think they can . Not that much anyway .

    VEM does its own adjusting automatically . Based on the frequency and success each player has on each shot .

    Forgiveness is based on how much distance and precision one loses when one misses the ding .

    Drivers and Irons range at somewhere between 2.0 & 5.0 forgiveness .

    22% & 32% seems like an awfully high percentage to be playing with .

    I'm just saying . WTF are they talking about ?
