    Never get anything but bronze when loss of match, I see gold and platinum when winning vs same tier or higher and silver for winning vs lower tier- Not saying this is how it works, just what I have seen happen.

    Here's a good thing in a loss.

    If you have level 10 Apparel in SE (Swing Edge), they guarantee there will be 1 SE item, even in a loss! So if you lose, and have all level 10 SE, since you cannot increase your apparel, you GET PAID 200 COINS PER POINT. Losses are either 1 or 2 points so for a 500 coin loss, you can get reimbursed 200 or 400 coins.

    Yes, I lose alot BUT got my SE level 10 apparel to CMA!

    Of course you are looking at it from the perspective of a tour champ, the players in Chelsea are more often lower tier players with less coins and therefore getting your stake or most of it back on a loss is worth having .

    bronze= a loss at any level. 2-3 points

    silver 10-12 points. most wins.

    gold 34-35 points

    platinum - somewhere around 110 i think.

    the level of room dictates gold and platinum drop frequency.

     

    the last 3 rooms, tokyo, manhattan and bellagio will drop gold about 1 in 5 wins and platinum about 1 in 20.

    Good point!

    Typically I stay to end no matter what- But if there is no chatting and I get to where I know I have lost I may bail to get another sponsor game in or screw the pooch on two drives in a row and knowing I am adding a lot of time to my quick game- I may bail, BUT I Never ever do this if the other person is chatting and enjoying the game. 

    Personally the coins to me are worthless and I dont base quitting or finishing on them at all.

    I'm just a mortal human hearing from Mt Olympus about how the gods play. Good to know! (If it comes up in Trivial Pursuit because I'd dread playing H2H with my hand shaking so much).

    I played 3 games in RIO one night, two of the "at random" games were against the same player. I lost them both.

    Yet I know coins are worthless. You can buy a million for $49.75, which is 201 coins for 1c. All you can purchase with coins is Apparel, and only when WGT says you've earned enough points to buy something.

    I guess I'm a "thrifty" person.

    It is interesting to see the various comments and opinions from the posters in this heavily posted in topic . Coins .

    Many preface their comment with something like " I know or Even though " " Coins are worthless " Then . " do not care about this format " . Or something similar .Still not willing to give the format credit .

    Yet we cared enough to post a number of times . The value is not in the coins obviously . Yet their fate controls your actions . I'm going to assume that most coin players do not purchase coins . They win therm in their coin room battles . Their own skills and strategies and whatever time it takes to attempt or reach their goal(s) . The journeys or battles whether 1 hole or 3 hole or 9 hole . Make the format valuable . At different levels . For different players .

    I'm going to assume that whoever thought up this format . Had the same sporting mind set as any has in all sports . To play fairly , quickly , maturely , sportingly , and with some regard to ones opponent .

    Somehow I don't think quitting and or forfeiting was ever an acceptable part of the game . Whether one values coins . Or values the format or not . Quitting can never end well in any format .

    Anything else that we think means nothing without a " Set of Rules of the Game ".

    Until then . I'm going to keep my values intact . And not consider quitting as valid .

    Edit :

    WGT in its infinite wisdom and success . Originally created a " FORFEIT " button . In other MP formats . Accordingly by their own rules . Suggest that action as acceptable in those formats . Still a personal choice . Evidently necessary in some circumstances . Not suggesting it be the norm .

    Similarly there is a " WITHDRAWAL " button in the coin format . To be used if one has that notion .

    I still choose not to .

    In the old days, we "conceded" the hole or match. I feel that sounds much more pleasing than "forfeit". It may be an euphemism, but a good one.

    Last April, when I was new to Topgolf, I wrote the following in the CC's forum...

    At first, I didn't think Topgolf would have anything better than what WGT Golf gave us...but they do. At least for me.

    I "love" the "Head to Head" competition that they have when you sign in to the WGT Launcher. You play with "coins" (that they give you daily), to buy "Apparel" with.

    This "apparel" increases in price as you increase your ability. You START at level 1, and can increase to level 10. The benefits you get at level 10 make you a TC even though your rank is TM.

    Also, as I'm playing I check to see if the opposing player is with a CC then send him a membership request.

    It's funny to see none of the players have ever seen a level 175 player (or a TC). Even for a TC, there's no sure thing for a win!!!

    Try it....but...

    DON'T GET ADDICTED!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Written on 4/29/21, and I still like H2H!

    Quitting , conceding , forfeiting is always a controversial subject .

    In the Stroke MP rounds . It is an out that effects no one else . One can exit at any time . The round continues . The other players are not going to complain much .And a format that does record all of the statistics one can imagine . Something to guide one through their journey to rise through the ranks . On a long term mutifaceted whirlwind of formats and challenges . Something that has unfortunately lost all of its thunder . In lieu of a newer platform . Made more compatible with running the new format .

    ( IDK if that is right . But I find no joy in pursuing a lower average as I did in Flash . I tried and tried in this new platform . )

    In the Alt Shot format . Also a format with questionable " value " . A format popular with the masses . Including myself . And like the other original formats . To be played in 9 hole or 18 hole rounds .

    Some say that quitting in this format doesn't matter . On the account that it records no statistics , And just like coins there is a hidden W & L column .

    But is a format with common invested interests . Related to enjoying the game of online virtual golf . Which includes having some regards for ones opponents . Therefore a mutually conceded match ruffles no feathers . And an abruptly ended one makes no friends . But can be blamed on an involuntary  disconnection . Lol .

    Coins opened up a whole new avenue for enjoyment and continued involvement and success for WGT . Just as valid as any other .

    That isn't confined to just coins . WGT should open a museum for oddities though . Lol jk not .
