    SamSpayed:

    IMHO, WGT should limit it as follows:

    Rookie:  Tour Masters and below only

    Veteran:  Tour Legends and below only

    Expert:  Open to all tiers

    the problem with this is that the labels are nothing more than WGT's use of terms that just differentiate the entry fee but really have no real relevance to the actual skill level of those entering each division. 

    Rookie will actually play more challenging than Veteran and Expert - especially when you factor in higher tier players are going to increase their chances of being matched up against a low tier player that is more likely to rage quit on them - but it is something they will risk for 10 credits but not 100 or 1000 credits.

    my only complaint is when I see a tour champ or any player possibly consistently dominating the Rookie tier - winning over and over again - but never moving up.  they are doing this while playing 1000 credit balls - they don't even care about the cheaper balls they would win because they are not balls, they are interested in.  

    My suggestion would be - WGT should impose something like a tier-based promotion system so that if someone wins a lower division X # of times then they are no longer eligible to play in the lower division.- they will have earned their promotion in essence.  just as they promote some coin room players based on their success in coin rooms without having ever reached the ranked round requirement.

    That way, tour champs that are still building their apparel and experience in coin rooms are not unfairly penalized and forced to play in higher divisions they would not be competitive in because they may even get beat by lower tier coin room specialist - but the players dominating - would not be permitted to continue doing so.  

    Given the range of skill levels at every tier - only forcibly promoting those dominating certain divisions should be forced to move up - otherwise players should play where they feel comfortable because not all tour champs play like tour champs.

    You have been around much longer than I so I respect your opinion, but guess we won't know for sure. However vast majority of Legends I see in game have avgs way over 60 which leads me to believe they are coin room warriors like myself

    Ever hear of Clash. Play some of those rounds with high winds, tournament greens and long tees and see where your average goes. Above 60 is the answer for lots of players.

    I play in the Veteran 100c section for 1 reason only. The Rand Dollar ecxhange rate makes 1000c entry for the Expert section a little too expensive for me.

    I do however agree that there should be limits, but how about splitting the TL's + into a 100, 500 1000c sections, and the same for lower tiers?

    I play in Veteran usually as well, I've played the expert one- but there were very few players and the cut line was obscenely low due to low participation.

    I dont care much about the Vet or Expert but I do think low level and newer players need a division they can compete in w/o playing TLs, C's and TC's....

    Exactly my sentiment, but.... then you get those sandbaggers. LOL. No way you're going to keep them out.
