When will GC change their stupid unfair shootout format

25 January 2018 - 04:22 PM

There has been several shootouts where I went first, barely missed the island landing spot and ended up in the bunker, my opponent just needed to aim in the bunker a bit further than my ball to win, another one shootout when I got in the water and my opponent only needed to hit 5 yards to win.


I've submitted the following suggestion to them with no response:  In shootout, both players hit their own shots first, then GC can play the opponent's shot after, no one has the advantage of seeing how the other person did to decide what to do.  This is much more fair as both players must try their best because they don't know how the opponent ended up.


Another frustrating thing is the stupid random order of play. In the last 10 games, I had to go first on shootout 9 out of 10, and it didn't matter if I went first in the regular play or went second, I always ended up going first on shootout.   Be consistent, if I go first in regular play, I should always go second in the shootout.

Error #122 trying to run GC apps on PC via Bluestacks

09 January 2018 - 09:55 PM

I installed Bluestacks and downloaded GC with no issue.  Went through the initial setup, even connected to Facebook, no problem at all.  But I cannot start a game, every time I click on Tour 1 to start a game, the "Finding Opponent" window runs for awhile (scrolling player's avatars) then came back with a message "Your Connection is not stable enough to play right now. Please check your connection or try again later". Error #123 


My PC is connected on 1Gb LAN line to the router, speed test indicates 50MB download & 10MB upload, it CAN'T be unstable connection.


Has anyone successfully installed and run GC on Bluestacks (on Windows 7) and know how to fix this issue?




Correction: error #123 not 122.

When is the next tournament?

04 January 2018 - 09:58 PM

There has been 4 tournaments since I started playing GC, and I noticed that each of those tournaments were exactly 2 weeks apart.  It's been almost 3 weeks since the Christmas tournament, does anyone know when the next one is?

Warning! Shark-infested water in bay 9

19 December 2017 - 07:21 PM

After playing the last 3 tournaments reasonably well in the Rookie division, I decided to enter the Christmas tournament in the Pro division.


Even though I got through the Qual. round to make it to the W/E round, I had to scramble a lot on many holes (got a few lucky shots to save myself).  


So last night I decided to practice on Tour 9 (which had opened up for me recently) and discovered that there are a ton of sharks there practicing as well, half of the opponents I met were "Masters" (purple banner) and the other half were seasoned Experts.


Needless to say, my coin bank of 11.3 Mil got cleaned out pretty quickly.  It will take me awhile to build it back up.


Warning to all you Pros who want to practice in Tour 9, lots of sharks are snooping around there looking for baits.  :wacko:

Idea about shoot-out

12 December 2017 - 09:23 PM

Each player has to take the shot of his/her own without seeing how his/her opponent did.  GC should only show the opponent's shot after you take your shot.


This way the 2nd player can't mimic the first player's shot with a little adjustment to win.  Also avoiding the 2nd player take a 5-yard shot after seeing the 1st player going into water.  Very unfair for the player who goes first.
