Tournament qualification.

Seems a bit unfair that if a bunch of people have the same score some qualify and some don't. I guess it's for them to keep the numbers even but still.


Spending Gems

05 January 2018 - 04:03 AM

So I've seen this talked about a few times but figured a full discussion might be worth it.

 

Questions:

 

What do you spend your gems on? Opening chests? Buying chests? Upgrading clubs? Balls?

 

If so which are worth the gems?

 

 

Speaking for myself as about a month old player on +/- 1450 trophies my earliest problem was playing people with way better clubs and balls than me. It took ages to upgrade my EM4 to 5 and face Sniper players with a BD4 etc. This has somewhat abated recently but it's still weird to get a 1200 trophy player match and watch them tee off with an Apo2 (which actually is quite common) So I thought they must be buying the chests as the ones for sale are from a higher tour than you are generally playing but still unlocked. I've bought a couple of Gold 8 chests and frankly got nothing so have given that up. Just to check I also bought 1 Platinum, but again nothing useful so unless I want to sink ludicrous amounts of money into a game I consider that pretty much a waste of time.

Opening chests I'll do to keep a slot open if I'm playing Tour 7 games to catch the extra chests, hopefully gold, but only open the silver with gems.

I buy Marlin balls but not any more expensive.

I've hardly seen worthwhile club upgrades but did buy 3 cards to get my EM4 to 5.

 

As for spending real money I only buy the Tour offers when you unlock the next one, and I have to admit the Year end cheaper ones :) 


Is this type of thing usual for the game?

First off hi! I'm a new player that has been pretty well hooked on the game in the last month since I started.

 

First of all everything went fine and i made steady progress to Tour 7 on 2 different accounts, one on my iPhone, and 1 on my iPad (yup...addicted)

 

Then it seems like in the last week or 10 days all kind of weird has started happening and I have no idea how or why. First it looked like more or less identical shots gave really, really different results. Sometimes what should have been a high wind - 9-10 mph just didn't make any effect. So yeah - I'm new so I told myself that it was just my bad play and just man up and do it again. Lost 2 million from 3 back down to 1 in a week.

 

And then this...which really shook my faith in the game mechanics being actually stable:

(I'm not quite sure how to post replays here yet so I hope the dropbox links work - basically 1 shows a shot clearly ending under the lip of a very high bunker (B), and the next shot placed on the fairway out of the bunker about 2 yards in front(a))
