Basically the best way to explain is that:
With goals, there are weekly and daily goals which you can always see what they are via the timer that's attached to them, complete those to get a higher tier to earn better rewards (plus and premier members do get more rewards)
Achievements are lifetime rewards that can earn your prizes by doing things by just playing the game a lot, you can take a look and explore the achievements tabs to see if you want to try and complete them, or you can just play the game normally and you'll eventually complete some over time.
This is also still an early version of G&A and we're already looking into ways to improve it as time goes on.
I admittedly don't remember if an achievement is still supposed to count if someone withdraws or not
Wow! A whole lot to absorb and get used to. Is there a simple guide to what it all means and what are we ultimately trying to achieve?
I played a few coin games this morning and I noticed achievements updating after each match. In one match I knocked a 3W to within a couple feet, an easy eagle, but my opponent withdrew. I assume his actions reflected on me not getting credit for said eagle?
If so, perhaps an option for the non-withdrawing player to finish the hole/match?
