I know of at least one player who plays both coin games and ranked rounds. He was promoted to Champion after only 60-something ranked rounds at TL. So his performance in coin games was obviously the primary factor in his being promoted, but it was not the only factor.
Sam . I have to at least say that you are on to something . We do not know by what basis or means WGT decides when and how to determine . The original exclusively coin playing . Mostly all Mobile players . Are to tier up . The how , when and why .
No statistics are used or saved on the players statistic record in those rounds .
This just doesn't make any sense .
can someone explain how one can reach
master tier at level 90+ and have a scoring avg of 150 but beat me like
a drum in the coin rooms with me at scoring avg of 67? I understand
how the scoring avg is calculated but you have to play ranked rounds to
move up tier. right?
Robert says :
WGT has a separate set of criteria (based in part on levels) to tier players up who play only coin games. I once saw a Tour Champion with only 6 ranked rounds.
What all the criteria are and how they are related to tiering up coin players, no one (outside of WGT) knows.
Bottom line is that, for coin players, average is totally irrelevant and not indicative of player's ability at all.
Which could be true .
With an emphasis on " exclusively playing coin games . "
Which at this point and for the last over 2 years . Is not a likely possibility . With as many PC players playing in the coin rooms .
Not to mention that Mobile players have been able to play RANKED ROUNDS . Since the beginning nearly a decade ago . Many have played both all along . Tiering up the proper way . With no regards to coins . There can't be any regards to coins if they are playing ranked rounds .
WGT may have a way to distinguish the exclusive coin players . Which I highly doubt . What happens when that player plays 1 or 10 or 100 ranked rounds . All exclusive coin calculations go up in smoke .
I think they do bong hits and roll the dice one day . Do paper scissors rock the next day . Coin tosses on the third day . To determine how they tier up .
