Completely different animals . Whether it is/was flash or PCEA or mobile . When someone leaves an alt shot , non ranked , non scored , non counting format . The game ends . No coins no points no anything .
But yes . I think the long time original mobile players . Are accustomed to just plain leaving when irritated . No matter what the format is . Not understanding at all the ramifications in the real WGT world .
Having possibly played for a number of years . Never having played a ranked round . Not even knowing what that means or what tiers are . Or how one would lower ones average .
In Mobile . There was never an attempt to inform or enlighten any players or new players to that format about the world of WGT.com .
It is unfortunate that there was such a divide in the information and communication .
As a result . There are many hard core very good and dedicated mobile players . That have been essentially spinning their wheels . After a good many years . Still having very high averages , middle tiers and Levels .
Some are very very good . But without any emphasis toward WGT.com . They have missed out on the opportunities to lower their averages , move up in tiers , access to better equipment .
Not to mention the wealth of information that most of the flash players had in the way of Forums , Country Clubs , multiplayer formats , various other interactive formats and multi media .
Although I am sure that there are many that could care less about any of that . You gotta believe that a majority would have rather had the access and opportunities .
So basically I am excusing some of their behavior as innocent ignorance . They just didn't know .
But that time has expired . At this point there is no excuse not to know .
