    The who coin games needs revamped imo. I been playing all week in a a league and was heading it having played at least 6 games a day. amassing approx 400,000 coins along with 2 other players who play regualr games. Then out of the blue in ONE game a player jumps from approx 220,000 coins to 720,000 coins. This should not happen and these leagues need to have alimit of say 20,000 coins that can be won in a single game. Otherwise any top player can scoop the prize by playing 1 or 2 games.


    I can assre you it just sickens people.I know I just thought WTF and felt like deleting the game and moving to another game.(pastime)

    This didn't work. It booted me out of the game, but I got a screen shot.

    I believe i just ran into my first cheater or at least the first one I've suspected of it. First hole I hit a 12' 3" right to left breaking putt and he started calling me a cheater. Was up by 4 after 4 then the guy went lights out. Over a 150' of putts over the next five holes with little to no time taken to read the putts. Sad that people have to ruin what I think is a solid game. It has its issues but if they don't address the cheating it will slowly destroy the game.

    Please WGT explain this to me. Decided to have a go at the coin league which I had not for some time. I was way down in the GOLD league and had only about 6000 coins. Got a bit of a run going and moved into 3rd place on day 2 and after 4 days I managed to hit the number 1 spot with 69,233 coins won. That was at 2.14 pm at which time a player paul21383 was in 13th position with 11571 coins won. I logged back in at 4.22 pm and  he was at number 1 with 171,999 coins won which means in just over 1 hour he won 160,428 coins. DO THE MATHS let's say he won a 9 hole game in the Shanghai Room his balance to find is 70,428. Then he wins a 1 hole game in Rio his balance then becomes 34,428. Where does he find 34,428 CANT be Rio 36k CANT be 2 games in Casablanca 18+18..I am not accusing Paul but would love to know how he did it???? for example if you buy coins that adds to your winning but something STINKS.

    I would appreciate anyone who can come up with an answer.

    I would add when playing in these leagues why on earth does WGT not set limits for each league you can win in one go.. As it stands some top player might drop by on the last day and play 1 game in Manhattan for 900,000 coins and scoop the pot others have competed to win for 6 days. Another WGT balls up

    I would appreciate anyone who can come up with an answer.

    1 win in the Tokyo gets you 450,000 on a 250,000 entry. It is 1 hole.

    When I played the "coin league", which catapulted me from Legend to Tour Legend, I worked my way up as you did and had the same results as you. After that, the next time I made it to number 1, I signed off and waited a while. Yep, not long after, I was no longer in 1st, this happened all the time and as I progressed through the levels, I noticed it was always the same guy.

    Eventually, I caught on. I got myself in 1st late in the week and waited for him to surpass me (btw, he was always in the millions of credits). I then played, and won, rounds in the Tokyo room and passed him and waited. We went back and forth for a day or so. Finally, I waited for him to overtake me and I did not play afterwards. I would always check to see if he had. It was apparent, he knew I was chasing him and only played to stay a few hundred thousand coins ahead of me.  Before going to bed on a Saturday evening, I set my alarm to get up before the week was "closed" and play more in the Tokyo room, overtaking him and giving him little time to catch back up. I assumed he was probably asleep at the time I surpassed him. Eventually, we became friends and chatted about it. He knew all along that I was chasing him and did, in fact, go asleep thinking he had won. Unfortunately, it turned out he was a "coin printer" and has since been booted from WGT.

    I only did this once, in order to reach the top of the league after working my way up. It takes way too much effort. However, the next day, not only did I win, but I was advanced to Tour Legend! Mind you, I had to work all the way up the ladder and stay in the top spots to keep advancing and had to win the last one.

    Last week I played every day, mostly in Casablanca and finished 2nd in the Plat 1 league.

    I was leading until a 143 ranked player hit 1.5 million coins out of nowhere.

    I was promoted to Plat 2 and played every day again most of my games again in Casablanca with a couple in Rio.

    I have amassed 988,000 coins and lead the field BUT suddenly today a Tour Champion. has appeared from nowhere with over 555,000 coins. Most likely by playing 3 holes in the Tokyo room.

    I expect he will pass me soon BUT ASK WGT wtf are you playing at? You want people to enjoy competition then you MUST restrict how many coins can be won per game in the coin leagues. Right now anyone with the coins and the rank could play 1 game in Manhattan and top Platinum 2.

    This to me is downright cheating and it is encouraged by WGT. Why have leagues if there are no rules? Coins are worth nothing but that is not the point. Players who are looking for competition are looking for fairness something WGT lacks badly
