Is there something that can be done about this? I play for fun and I don't expect to win every game. I'm a level 52. I don't have a lot of coins - around 20,000. So I play the Beverly Hills 9 hole Stroke Play often. Lately I've been getting constantly paired with players in the 70s, 80s, several in the 90s, some in the 100s-110s. I played my best 9 holes ever I think earlier - going -4 and had to make several long putts to do that. The near 100 level guy kept saying he couldn't believe how I kept making these shots. And I was getting lucky I'll admit.
It took it to a sudden death playoff and the guy felt bad for me so he shanked it on purpose. He told me he was going to because he felt bad for me playing so far over my skis.
But I very, very rarely get matched with anyone similar in rank and almost never with a lower ranked player. Maybe it should be once you reach a certain level you can't even play in some of the low coin rooms? I don't know. I just know it's very discouraging when I keep getting my eyes dotted by guys that can hit heartbeat shots 90% of the time when they are within striking distance of the pin. And I keep losing coins because I'm getting smoked by these higher ranked players. It just doesn't seem right. Sometimes - ok. But nearly every game I play to be paired with higher ranked players?
Very good 1st Post . I think originally WGT envisioned that the tiering itself in the coin rooms would have a little more parity . And to offset any difference . The solution was to incorporate random green speeds in the coin rooms . That was/is a GR8 feature . For the most part it really works . I can see how some may not feel the same way .
Unfortunately the pairing is all over the place in the coin rooms . There is no way to play ones fellow tier peers .
But no matter . One of the most popular and stiil highly used formats in WGT ( much more popular than coin rooms ) . Are the " CREATE A GAME " and " JOIN A GAME " features .
Where as the host setting up the game and inviting the players . You get to choose the tier limits . And a couple other features .
This is preferred by many . As for 1 , you can have up to 3 opponents of your same tier . 2 , these rounds are Ranked ,3 , they count all statistics in your WGT profile . 4 They affect your average ( by raising or lowering your average dependant upon your wins at or above or below your current average ) . 5 they allow you to move up in tier much faster . 6 they are much funner , being 9 or 18 holes on the courses of your choice . Etc , etc , etc , etc .
Not to forget that WGT has made 9 hole stroke play rounds . Count as an 18 hole round .
18 = 72
9 = 72
So there is a very good solution to your concerns .
Good post .
