    We're getting ready to play the next SHOWDOWN "Under the Stars Showdown"... great name BTW... 

    Something I've noticed too often is that glitches occur during showdowns when some players "QUIT". More than once, while playing for showdown points, a player will quit, and rather than moving on in solo, for some reason the game totally miss-scores the 3-hole set. I've played one hole with a "QUITTER" and been given three bogies in a row. Say what?

    I have a suggestion. Why not put in a concede button? Or does that complicate things? I've had matches where I know I've lost, but I don't QUIT. IDK - getting ready to play another showdown and my only concern is the quitters.

    These ''quits'' happen to me every showdown. But no story about bogeys and stuff. So why it does happen to some players and not to others?

    If someone quits, dont click the cancel button, always click retry button.. Cancelling takes you out of the game. Retrying, the game continues as long as you do not click cancel.

      What is a showdown ? Is it like a CLASH or Turf War ? Between CC's ?

      I found a lot of threads on the subject . But nothing about what it is .

    this happens to me all the time in the showdown.  

    For example, round 2, I am 1.4 yard from an ace.  I get the spinning wheel, because obviously the other player has quit out of the app.  about 4 minutes pass, and I get a popup saying "Saved Game No Longer Exists".  

    I go back in and sure enough, I went 1.4' from a bird, to 3 bogeys.  

     

    EVERY showdown this occurs.

    This has never happened to me and I've played in just about every showdown and except for two times when i was with family and couldn't play the last round, i played all 3 rounds.

    Once again...

    If the player closes out their game and doesn't actually hit forfeit about 45-60 seconds will go by then the game should reset back to the loading page and they will have 45 seconds to return. (which they almost never do).  This happened to me maybe 4-5 times this last showdown. And every time I was able to  finish playing solo. 

    what to do if it takes longer than about a minute to realize that the other person is gone. or what happened isn't that the other person quit... maybe you are the one that has a poor connection:

    The safest way to handle this if it happens, which is rare, is to load up the game on a second device.  This will kick you off the first device. And it will be a smooth transition into the game. Finish out the round then go back to your preferred device for the other matches.  Maybe once every 4 showdowns i might have to do this. Maybe not even that much.

    So if you're getting saved game doesn't exist every showdown my logic is that your connection is probably part of the problem.

     I know you weren't responding to me . But your answer is the right one . And usually uncovers all the information one wants to know .

      In the case of my questions , there was nothing .

      When I finally was able to enter a Showdown . I found the rules .

      Member services has admitted that these are glitches . And not the intended outcome . As there are several scenarios exiting players , forcing forfeits , producing false bogeys , etc .

      They indicated that these are priorities to them .

      The BeachBum showed some improvement . I had no forfeit/bogeys myself . I played like crap . But for me it was glitch free . In the one incident that I encountered . It appeared that my opponent left . I was able to continue and play the 3 holes solo .That was a first .

      That to me was an improvement . If there were fewer players reporting problems . That is an improvement .

      I submit screen shots of every glitch and error I encounter . And I explain the details of what occurred . Hopefully this and other data will help them continue to narrow down these errors . What causes them . And how to avoid or eliminate them .
