Owner’s Objectives

It's been a while since I expressed some of my objectives for the CC . First of all I like and respect everyone that joins our club . I realize that not everyone knows what a CC is all about . Many have different reasons for joining . I really don't know how many of the other clubs are run . They are all different . What I want to emphasize in our CC is that whatever tier you are . That you feel comfortable here , part of a team of players that come here to find conditions that enable them to improve their game , hone their skills , lower their scores ,lower their averages , move up in tiers . Enjoyably and comfortably with the conditions that challenge them enough to keep that drive without the frustrationsof regular game play . All that is completely possible by either creating those tourneys yourself or by messaging me about it . Or someone else in your tier that has been creating tourneys . Any kind of information that you need to know should be provided here , any kind of appp , calculator , help , tutorial , tournament , statistic , message , opinion , gripe , compliment , etc , etc . Should able to be aqcuired here ( or in our website , as it may be easier there ). With your help , all of this can be done easily . We already have a good start . I am going to be here for a very long time trying to achieve all this . For any of you that think it's a good direction for your CC to go in . Then lets keep on keepin on . Sincerely , Your Co team member PDB1 , Paul ( sitting here on a rare rainy day ) May the SUN always be with you

GOLF WITH FRIENDS & MORE Golf_w11
  I have always said that golfing with WGT friends and players already on WGT . Is one of the GR8est features available .
  The myriad of people we have the opportunity to interact with . To share with . To learn from . To joke with . To converse with . To give and take . To learn about other cultures .
  People speaking other languages have instant translators now . One can have a conversation with anyone from all over the world . I can guarantee you will meet people from more places than you knew was possible .
  I suggest that people think a little harder before declining an invite . The chances are that you will not have another opportunity to play with that player again . The odds are against it . If you do not know the player .
  Try to invite more yourselves . You already know how fun it is .
  In the " JOIN A GAME " . You don't even have to invite . You just join on in with 3 or 2 or 1 new and likely unknown players . Play what will be a fun and inspiring round . With the possibility of ending up with 1 or 2 or 3 new friends or multiplayer mates .
  Keeping in mind that very soon . The already extremely difficult task of inviting , getting accepted . Or seeing and accepting an invite . In Flash because of the primitive means by which one is to be expected to be notified . By staring at a tiny little green blinking icon somewhere on a page that you happened to look away from for 45 seconds . Making inviting almost too hard to be worth it .
  Keeping in mind that the already familiar but excruciating invite system . Will not be around much longer . If you think it is hard now . Try it in PCEA . Lol . Nope not even almost worth it .
  With those dark days slowly but steadily closing in on us . NOW is the time to get those long procrastinated rounds with friends in .
  Maybe for the first time . Maybe you already do . But now realize it is time to step it up even more .
  This is absolutely intended to be a positive and encouraging post . But I shutter to think of what the future may hold for us .
  Invite today . Tomorrow . Everyday until the end of the year . Or until you can no longer . That is my advice .

It seems like for forever I have been referring to " the short lists " . I can see from the short lists that there is a lot of this or that . But to make the long list just seems impossible .
  One of those lists I have been reluctant to tackle . Is a list of my old CC mates from VOTSCC . I can't make them all trophies . ( i already have ) . But I would love to thank them . For being part of the funnest and most rewarding group and adventures I have experienced here in WGT . And a highlight of my life . It was that good . You would have to have been there .
  I figured out how to do that . And it is one of the long lists . For sure . This list will also include many acquaintances , friends , CC owners , multiplayer mates , etc .
  But mostly 90 % are VOTSCCers . I never counted them before . I still haven't . But I have always said if we had kept them all . We could have made 2 full CC's . That turns out to be true .
  Here is a list of 637 with all of the above . With over 500 ex VOTSCCers .

  This list is not even close to all of the acquaintances ,friends , CC owners , multiplayer mates , I have had the pleasure of meeting here in WGT . I don't plan on making that list . 
  But it is the most complete list of VOTSCCers I can come up with .There are even more than this list shows . As there were dozens more that I never shared a message with . I have no record of them . As when they closed the CC . With it went an astounding amount of information . That is gone forever . All good on that . Ancient history .
  Sincerely though . To all my old VOTSCCers . Thank you for all the GR8 times we had . Brief or long . Through all of the intense events ,
Challonge embedded brackets for a year . ( lost that link will have to recreate it ),
VOTSCC vs CC ,
WGT CLASHes ,
in CC tournaments and competions ,
Desert Blitz ,  

VOTSC KICK ASS IN CC STROKE , MATCH & MOBILE CHALLENGES

etc , etc , etc .

Our CC Forum . Our comradery , dedication , interest in others . Willingness and eagerness to help . 
  Though we kept the roster at around 50 to 60 . The main group was there for years . This small group fought tooth and nail in every event . Mostly underdogs because of size . But we had some wins and some formidable players .  
  Very high turnover rate . By my choice for the most part . But others chose other paths as well . I really think we saw more than 600 players go through over the years .
  Still for many years we had a GR8 thing going amongst us . The best Tournament Director . Many GR8 tourney makers . Stroke Bracket and CTTH Bracket Directors . Blitz Directors .
  All very professional and willing to put it out to ensure that they were fun an organized events .
  I asked a lot . Never demanded . But I did want to do everything . Even more than we were doing . I/we had so much fun . I believe that most members would feel the same and agree .
  I just wanted to be sure . ( after I left ) . That we were still all good . We parted on good terms . Even though it was tough for both myself and them . Eventually they moved on . That is totally cool . All good . I hope all are happy and enjoying where they are .
  This is my chance to reach out to all those GR8 VOTSCCers . Many of us were together for years . And say thanx for the good tomes and bad times and all the crazy times .
  May the SUN always be with US .

subject title HOW TO JOIN OR CREATE A GAME W/ FRIENDS OR RANDOM STRANGERS

Post by Paul on Sun 27 Sep 2020, 09:22

Unlike WGT or CC Stroke Play rounds . Mobile or PCEA Coin Room Stroke Play are not Ranked Rounds . They do not count .
  It seems to me that there is rarely any parity in the coin games . May end up losing a lot of coins there .
  There is/are other ways to play stroke play amongst ones peers and tiers .
  From your home screen choose
GOLF WITH FRIENDS & MORE Pcea_g10
Then choose Multiplayer Stroke Play
GOLF WITH FRIENDS & MORE Pcea_m10
Then you have 2 GR8 options . CREATE A GAME or JOIN A GAME
GOLF WITH FRIENDS & MORE Pcea_c11
CREATE A GAME . You choose all the options . The course , front 9 , back 9 , or full 18 . You choose max tier for your opponents . You choose length of the shot clock . You choose number of timeouts allowed per player .
hole locations , tee locations , green speeds , wind speeds .

GOLF WITH FRIENDS & MORE Pcea_c12
FIND A GAME
GOLF WITH FRIENDS & MORE Pcea_f10
FIND A GAME .You choose all the options . The course , front 9 , back 9 , or full 18 . You choose max tier for your opponents . You choose length of the shot clock . You choose number of timeouts allowed per player .
In Create a Game . After you set up everything . You click CREATE GAME .

GOLF WITH FRIENDS & MORE Create10
 Then you start inviting players . Either 1 , or 2 , or 3 . From the available for a game list of your friends .
 
  Or
  You click ANYONE . Random players no higher than TOUR PRO will start showing up at each opponent .
  In Find a game you get invited to another TOURPRO's game . And become one of his opponents .
  These games are very cool . Players of your tiers and peers . 1 , 2 , or 3 players , And these rounds count . They are Ranked Rounds . 9 or 18 holes . You will become a better player while lowering your average .

      Try to invite more yourselves . You already know how fun it is .
      In the " JOIN A GAME " . You don't even have to invite . You just join on in with 3 or 2 or 1 new and likely unknown players . Play what will be a fun and inspiring round . With the possibility of ending up with 1 or 2 or 3 new friends or multiplayer mates .
      Keeping in mind that very soon . The already extremely difficult task of inviting , getting accepted . Or seeing and accepting an invite . In Flash because of the primitive means by which one is to be expected to be notified . By staring at a tiny little green blinking icon somewhere on a page that you happened to look away from for 45 seconds . Making inviting almost too hard to be worth it .
      Keeping in mind that the already familiar but excruciating invite system . Will not be around much longer . If you think it is hard now . Try it in PCEA . Lol . Nope not even almost worth it .
      With those dark days slowly but steadily closing in on us . NOW is the time to get those long procrastinated rounds with friends in .
      Maybe for the first time . Maybe you already do . But now realize it is time to step it up even more .
      This is absolutely intended to be a positive and encouraging post . But I shutter to think of what the future may hold for us .
      Invite today . Tomorrow . Everyday until the end of the year . Or until you can no longer . That is my advice .

    Sad, but true.
    Country Club communication is a big issue also. I tried to get players to use discord, teamspeak to no avail.
    No sense in country clubs anymore.

    Well said ....Just another reason PCEA is just no good ...And the Country Club (at least for me) Is by far the BEST aspect of WGT ....Without the easy access to the club the already high non participant numbers of club members will only grow exponentially ....I have beat this horse to death but I will say it again....Please keep flash AVAILABLE for the members that want to continue using it PAST 2020!! ...Many of us already have ways to continue on flash indefinitely....Like Dr Malcolm said...... "Flash players will find a way"

      I feel you Don . I battled that for years . My members were hard core dedicated to the CC . Playing in everything we could create .
      But to get them in multiplayer matches was not an option . Much less Skype or any of the others .With the exception of a very few .
      It was very frustrating for me . I had no right to complain . Because they were playing everything . CC tourneys , CLASHes , CC vs CC interplay .
      Multiplayer isn't for everyone . But I sure love(d) it .

    Players play the tournaments fine. You have to have communication.
    You know what it takes from EA to get to the forums, and you know the drill trying to get them to read the forums.
    Your friends list works on flash, so that's gone. I can send a message on the webpage, but they wont get it on EA.
    Frustrating to say the least.

    Think about it, there were thousands of us playing TOGETHER on PC each in our homes .... Now we can be TOGETHER in the same room with our mobiles playing ALONE.

      Lol . Yes in the same room playing alone . That already happens all over the place .
      When it comes to online golf . WGT PC Flash has kept ahead of others . By having as good of an accessible multiplayer as is offered .
      I really oppose letting that interactive link fade away .
      Once it is gone . Once PCEA becomes the main concern . Multiplayer will become obsolete .
      I think it is a big mistake . I think it will be missed . Solo online playing is not enough to make a GR8 site .
      5 years ago there was an estimated 60,000 plus Country Clubs on WGT . If there were only 10 players in each club . That would be 600,000 players .
      I think the numbers are bigger . But I don't see those CC's migrating to PCEA .
      Doesn't it appear to us that most long time players are opposed to the PCEA program ?
      Have you heard me say that in my recent search through 2500 profiles . I am astounded at the high number of players that have stopped playing in the last year . Long time players . That played steady up until this last year .
      Have you heard testimony from PCEA advocates . That sounded more like they were just settling . Which is exactly what they are doing .
      Have you noticed the GR8 number of established players ? That are not happy with PCEA ? That feel cheated ? That will not settle .? That cannot believe WGT has gone this easy route ?
      WGT only investing enough to match the mobile platform .Taking 3 steps backwards .
      Not pursuing a state of the art program . Still heavily multiplayer compatible . Going beyond what flash did . And then some .
      That decision will take the World out of WGT . W who ? People will say .
      To make a decision like that . Must mean they had already given up on WGT . As having any sort of positive revenue . They must have taken their money and invested it in something else .

      For the CC advocates . Which I am one .
      CC's are all completely different . The owners , the players all have different values and agenda's . None are the same .
      That is what is so valuable about CC's .
      WGT will find that CC's will be very disappointed if WGT doesn't accommodate all the different needs that CC's will require in PCEA .
      That is quite a lot .
      But the multiplayer players . Are going to also be disappointed in this platform . Multiplayer seekers do not need to be in a CC . Or they can be . But if they can't invite . How will they play ? I know they can invite . It is just much harder .
      I just don't get it .

    With the changes that have come to the game, having a method of communication outside of WGT is vital. All the more reason to have programs such as Discord or TeamSpeak or Steam in everyday use by WGT golfers.

      Yes those programs are very helpful . When you have a network of friends that agree . When those friends are on and green and responding . Then it may be easier to invite and coordinate games .
      But if those friends are not available . Or not available often .
      Then multiplayer will be difficult . And will not have Discord or TeamSpeak or Steam communication .
      I do not know why more players are not on board those communication devices . Except for everyone knows you talk funny . Lol . No matter so do we .
      But still the invite system . The ability to invite and notify , and receive and accept invites . Is a weak effort at best .
      Notification could be improved . By having a notification message at the top and bottom of the screen . Or a pop up message in the middle of the screen .
    GOLF WITH FRIENDS & MORE Invite16  orGOLF WITH FRIENDS & MORE Invite17
      Instead of the invisible little green icon first . That are most often missed . Or not clicked in time . By the time you get through the game client they have already given up on you . You just wasted the round you were in . If you were playing .
      If you were playing . You will see a pop up . Or a notification at the top and bottom of the page .
      If you are green . And not playing . That probably means you went to take a leak . Or bang the next door neighbor . And you won't see a pop up no matter how big it is .
      But if you are just writing a Forum post . Or checking a leader board , etc , etc . You will see the pop up .
      But you won't see the tiny green icon . And miss another invite .
      Shouldn't be that hard to make a better notification . From my experience this would almost fix the invites . Making it so easy . Even a red headed step child could do it .

    I am probably missing something here as I am a mobile player , but why can’t Wgt make the country club chat available to all players to use ? Why do we need an outside chat forum , when there is already the cc chat, all it needs is opening up to all users.

      Hi bossbird . Is the CC chat you refer to . A text chat ? Unlike the text chat in multiplayer mobile game mode ?
      I think part of the benefit of the voice chats . Are the notification bell or ringer . Usually on and louder than any WGT notifications . WGT volume and sound settings are usually turned down all the way . On account of that annoying ear  piercing theme song in the game client . Lol .
      The ringers  gets ones attention . That little green icon does not .
    Edit I remember the CC chat in Mobile now . If I remember right . One had to scroll through the entire list of chats . To the bottom . Then post a reply . Then repeat .
      But no . This thread is about the ability to actually notify a player of an invite and on the reverse , a player be able to accept invites . From any player . Whether be CC mate , friend , or not .

    Because outside chat programs like Discord have many more robust features (including voice chat) and are much easier to use while playing a game than WGT's cc chat.

    Discord is by far the best app out there for all games. I have had discord, teamspeak and telegram. All I get is excuses why they won't use it. I setup a facebook page and only 1/2 the club is interested enough to use it.
    If WGT was smart, they would setup a discord on their old servers with all the space they have now from Early Access. Discord is free.
    I don't see this happening, but we can dream.

    .
      Another GR8 suggestion from an experienced long time study of the particulars of this game .
      Who knows why these well thought out , efficient , improvements fall on deaf ears ?

    Self-hosting is not available for Discord.  And even if it were, based on what I've seen, I seriously doubt WGT would have the expertise to maintain it or deal with all the support e-mails they'd get from players having problems with it.

      Good point . Throughout the Flash Beta era . 2007 til the present . They have never wanted a support role . Whether it be discord or some other voice program . I think they would avoid adding programs that would require support .
      We can dream about how we wish the direction of WGT will go . But it is just a dream .
