Can anyone explain why forfeits are not recorded in the H@H record?
I think there are a couple reasons . The first and most important is the lack of a need to record many actions and features of the H2H mode . Especially negative ones .
The other reason is that the forfeit system is a big glitch . Most forfeits are false . It is a current system problem . Forfeits are often given to the slower of 2 computers . When the faster computer initiates the forfeit . Quits . The slower computer does not cycle the reconnect as fast . The system then determines that the slower computer " did not return in time " and assigns the forfeit to the innocent slower computer that didn't initiate anything .
Even if they fix that . Which is a big can of worms . And has them considering new codes that instead of one player receiving a forfeit . If the end of the round happens before the first tee . The change would return the entry fees to both players .
I think this platform has trouble discerning accurately between the 2 opponents . The coders are equally as inept in assigning the triggers the codes need to discern these differences .
Going back to the first reason . It is a negative statistic . Not necessary for recording .
The third giant factor is the high number of quitters that exit the game at every part of the round .
It has them considering things like this letter I recently received :

Thank you for messaging us with your concerns for the game and the overall community of players.
We understand the frustration caused when players leave games before
they are finished and we are developing a resolution for this.
The development team is currently in deliberation about the decision of
whether or not to add a penalty system to the game to increase game
It would enforce a strict punishment on players that
leave games, and reward players that choose to stay until the games full
I cannot tell you when it will be implemented, but I can tell you that it is being considered as a possible solution.
Your feedback is greatly appreciated as it helps create an optimal experience for our users. Thank you!
If you have any other questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact us and we will be glad to help.
You Know Who .
Of course that would be disastrous . And not a good solution at all .
Being a free and voluntary format . One cannot be punished for not doing any monetary or status changing actions . Needless to say . We would not be happy . And would cause a GR8 uproar .
But the current forfeit system is broken and has been all along . Forfeits will not be a recorded feature in any non counting rounds ever . And probably forfeits will not be counted in any format eventually . If they are actually counted in any formats .
We are asking this basic platform to perform and discern and separate and record and calculate many variables that were not considered when the decision was made to go forward with the platform .
It is not just that the techs haven't figured out how . I think it is beyond the capacity of depth and capabilities of this platform . It's maxed out . And actually getting corrupted more and more .
This is only my opinion based on many dozens recordings of frequent and illogical results . In the 100's .
