    Haunted Showdown - 3 Bogies Still Not Addressed

    ..

    It has been addressed . Your only hope is if it is in the Qualifier round . Sometimes players will get several chances to restart the Qualifier .

    Other than that . What's done is done .

    Addressed in that they admit that it is an unfortunate glitch . One they have not solved .

    I've said this before and I'm going to say it again. Guys, do not play it!

    I played the 1st edition of it and as soon as the glitch ruined the fun, I haven't even given a hasty glance at it ever since.

    When nobody, absolutely NOBODY plays it, then the company will probably roll up the sleeves and do something about it.

    I love this game and have no intention of doing harm to WGT, but only try to send a message by boycotting it. You guys should do the same if you want to see some change.

    I have seen, multiple times, this very same comment about "the clash". Don't hold your breathe waiting for people to boycott anything here. It will only happen when hell freezes over. Cheers

    The problem with this is that the few who read the forum might stop playing, but the majority who don't read the forum will continue to play, therefore it will never really hurt WGT, and so the problem will exist for many more years to come, maybe even forever... just like all the other bugs they have, and instead of fixing those they will continue to bring out other crap like G&A.

    Well, it used to happen EVERY year (and I'm sure it still does now)... To me, Montreal was a hell when growing up there. LOL A freakin' boot camp...

    I hear you Mio and you're right on this actually. Me being nothing but one powerless user though, boycotting is the only way to express my discontentment and that's why I'm doing it. Me alone, it might be only a drop in the bucket but many drops will make a shower as they say it.


     ⇩ EDIT : There you go, Dodgy. Exactly!

    Roughly 26,700,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 google tells me.  That's more than play the clash!

    Edit: Seriously though it's not even on Nico's bug log.  I don't want to risk the wrath of Champ by speculating on whether the things on the log or those missing are likely to be fixed but I think (that's I think...not they are) wgt are happy with the current numbers in the Showdown.  As Mio indicated even if some on the forum joined you, say 20 which would be a lot, it wouldn't make a difference.

    I had my share of this in the 100c one and just play for 10c now, with the added bonus that even if you're hit with this in the first two rounds it needn't mean you don't qualify.

    Agree 100% Simon.  Once WGT fixes the Showdown Bogey Glitch, I'll start playing them.  Until then, I will not.  Why reward and encourage poor programming? 🙄

    I doubt it will be fixed anytime soon, though.  WGT has repeatedly claimed they can't duplicate the error, it's not on their list of bugs they're working on, and yesterday Nico posted in Discord that "the bogey glitch only seems to effect less than 1% of each showdown".

    It's a shame too . As the most passionate and dedicated and forthcoming members are a big part of that small minority .

    This though could be a larger % being that there are probably many silent victims . But still not enough to warrant serious attention .

    Disappointing .
