    meter jumping

    sorry for your frustration, and I know this won't replace your lost balls... but here are a few thoughts.

    I can't really dismiss whether the game is at fault or not, but I do think it is also possible other factors can influence a jumpy meter.  

    even though some claim the meter is smoother on the new version or mobile I have not always found that to be true... but here are some things I suspect can also potentially impact a fluctuating meter speed...

    --- auto update of an app on mobile or tablet in the background that you can't see first hand, but ends up possibly being the factor that altered your meter and has nothing to do with WGT but rather your personal device.

    --- a possible call on a phone

    --- other processor related programs that unknowingly happen to pick up at inopportune times.

    --- your internet provider experiencing heavier service or factors.

    --- this does not include in game features or factors that may also apply or things the gaming algorithms may use

    --- WGT may also use an occasional jumpy meter to test or evaluate if a player is using cheat software that may help them ding their shots but give WGT more insight into whether the player is cheating - I don't know but if this is the case, I can live with some random miss dings if WGT is catching people using cheat software.  

    either way, while some factors can possibly be built into the game - some can easily be device or personal computer related.

    I have stated for so long that the only constant with WGT is it’s inconsistency and it’s jumpy meter but keep getting shouted down by the aholes who love and bow down to the gods at WGT - it’s a case of play games and accept the crap that we get served whilst the high and mighty you tube players say nothing is wrong with the game. 

    Unfortunately us lesser players count for nothing but, like the real world, the elite rule the roost.

    Play for fun and just accept our lot whilst the elite reap their rewards and bask in their self proclaimed glory - yawn, yawn, yawn.

    Wise words..  (this guy el3n1 knows his stuff) ..

    Many things can affect the swing meter.. a healthy PC certainly helps..i keep away from Facebook etc etc ..less traffic no ads or unwanted junk ..

    Good luck I hope things improve

    AnaNikolaj:
    them up towards the end of 2012. That was a part of the same system change that started artificially lowering averages for every RG win and when minimum required rounds per tier was thrown out the window for those players. Mind you, these changes were only affecting players up to Tour master tier and had zero affect for legends and above. 

     

      I don't know about the RG's . But the Match Play perk . Gaining up to a couple points lowering ones average by beating a tier above your own . Up through TM . Was a legitimate boost . Still had to play a couple thousand Stroke Play RR's . To continue to tier up .

    DodgyPutter:
    The fact that the people that started these accounts knew to do this usually meant it wasn't their first one (account).  So you have people that were a high tier with good equipment playing at lower tiers.  This got even worse with the new XP system when massive XP bonuses could be picked up simply for consecutive days played, there were also some glitches that helped those people along the way.

      There may have been some of that . IDK . It doesn't matter now .

      Anyone that has been here for many years . Plays well . The disparity is with the mobile players that weren't able to tier up through the normal system . They had no short cuts . They had no guidance to steer them in the right direction .

      Therefore the mobile players suffer now .

      No matter what route the Flash PC player took . Everything ironed out for them .

     

    AnaNikolaj:
    people were crying about L 90+ tour pros fleecing people in MP

    MP = Match Play?

    or

    MP = Multiplayer ?

    ranjet:

    In Match play I've never had the pleasure of a fleecing by a TP. i can imagine the tears of laughter at my own display on the course. But thanks for the info...   .id honestly never seen such high level pro - tour master players until these coin games came along.

      I would guess that means you have experienced it in Stroke Play .

      I would think most everyone has encountered some of these high level very good middle tier players .

      Who by no fault of their own . Have no clue about why there is all this disparity .

      That's what wrong with the app . It was developed wrong .

    Indeed wrong...but your guess was right

    coin games/rooms are Stroke play, im a 1 - 3 hole not too interested kinda guy on the phantasy golf.. its a carrot dangling ridiculous idea apparel assistance lure starting from hack onwards.. I never needed any special treatment to keep me keen over the years but I imagine that carrot works wonders at first sight.

    .lvl 0  Distance balls at stupid prices and let's throw the Newport putter up for 3000 credits at level 0.

    if you know golf ,the word Titleist at level 0 is a blatant money spinner.. I've just joined WGT and buy the full set..2 months later I might lose interest or life situations cause me to forget WGT for good..or I'm so hooked at hack look at my golf bag..   

    Its kids stuff a friend of mine once said then he gave up wgt in Jan due to his passion of matchplay and alternate shot on flash..I wonder how many jumped ship for the same reason .    

    a Level 100 Master crossed my path the other day..

     Until we reached the green.(tournament 12's).he looked cool but putted like a fool..All the gear with no idea,,,just plenty of yards to boast about...

      Literally 10's of thousands .

    ranjet:
    Level 100 Master

      Means nothing if he didn't tier up in recommended WGT PC protocol .

      Which he didn't . Not being in the proper higher tier per his activity . Nor having the proper equipment per same activity .

      Usually not his fault if he came up in mobile .

    True.. ..its wgts fault for the shortcut upstairs..

    I think learning the hard way pays off in the long run...

    Question 🙋.. Why can I no longer log in to the home page..my profile page...Google browser...    I fill the name and password correctly yet it comes up as an invalid log in attempt...?

    Only when I've logged in via the wgt launcher/app I then can gain access through my golf club..then my profile page...

    Before on PC this was never a problem.. Now days to read msgs,forum etc etc its a pain in the rear and slightly time consuming..  I wonder if its just me or not..?   

    Thanks.

    Ranj..

    Make sure that your keyboard is set to the correct language.

    In Windows 10, if you have more than one language installed, you can cycle through them by hitting the Windows key and the spacebar. You should get a small window pop up on your screen highlighting which language is selected when you do this.

    There is not much difference between the English UK keyboard and the English US keyboards, but some of the characters move to different keys. So if you look at your keyboard while typing, like I do, and especially if you are typing into a password entry field in which the characters are not shown, then you may not be typing what you think you are.

    It's a bit too easy to hit the Windows key and spacebar by mistake and change the keyboard language.
