I own a club and set all my tournaments this morning 7.45 am GMT there is nothing saying about pick when I want them to start. They all have starts in 8 hours an I have no way of changing it. You say we won't get the updates now until next week but obviously some of it is there !!!!.
Why not leave it to start when owners set them but if they don't want it to start then they can change it. Surely that would then leave it up to them, and those who are happy with as they set them would not have to worry.
A lot of people go to the old side to sign up for tournaments as they can enter them all at the same time but can play them at their leisure, which is exactly what I do. As it is on the new side if you click enter you have to play them right then which I know from my members they don't like that that way.
Why does WGT always mess with things that are ok but don't touch the things that really need doing. You do updates and then do more updates to sort out the mess ups the first update did. Don't you ever try it out before telling the world just in case somethings wrong ?????, which seems to always be the case.
