    Playing the Tie Dye Showdown, three under through 15, I went to play the last three holes.  It spun its wheels while trying to pair me with an opponent, then shut itself down.  I did not abort or cancel.  It counted it as my forfeit!  Now I won’t make the cut.  I have demanded reinstatement.

    EZCupps:
     I have demanded reinstatement.  

      Because of the high number of players in your exact position . Myself included . Reinstatement will not be happening .

      I know you are new to these forums . These glitches have been known and occurring since the first ShowDown .

      Anyone plays at their own risk . And must accept any unfortunate outcomes .

      Technically . I think that this PCEA is even more of a Beta program than Flash was its entire life .

      All of this is in the testing stage . As these are 1st time runs for every format . Until they get it right . Which may be never .

      I stand corrected .

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Hi,
    Thank you for your message. A Showdown game is supposed to let you finish your holes and keep your score when your opponent forfeits. It should only give bogeys if you forfeit a Showdown game, or have unplayed holes when the leaderboard closes.

    I refunded the entry fee credits back to your account for your trouble.

    Our QA team is looking further into the issue and we hope to have it resolved for you soon. Thank you for your patience.

    """"""""""""""""""""""""""

      Very cool .

    That IS decent of them.

    I had the same thing happen, but didn't know which thread of the hundreds here to reach out on. Instead I posted on the general board and now have a user telling me what I did wrong.

    Thanks for updating. I feel a bit smarter for a Monday. LOL

    So what happened is some type of communication error between you and the WGT server.

    Most likely it's on your end. or somewhere in between.

    Here is the question.

    How is WGT to know that you didn't quit (voluntary) vs your connection getting dropped. (involuntary).

    They matched you. You just never saw it.

      Dude . Please stop . These are all well known glitches in the programming . None of the players are to blame .

      You have no clue what transpired anyway .

       Please just chill .

    Network logs and simple scripts.  But in their minds they probably have better things to do.

    oh there are definitely glitches in programming. i got bogey bugged in one of the first showdowns and then the next one when i figured out a work around I shared it with everyone including these forums and do so every month. month after month. 

    all those other bugs. avoidable. the spinning one is too. fairly certain we talked about it in public forum before as well. 

    yes they are work arounds and we shouldn't have to but they exist. how many showdowns are there now? has to be over a year and i always seem to avoid getting the bogeys.

    luck? or i know how to avoid them?
