What is going in with matchplay. Been playing for months and see matches as a way of improving and earning coins and rewards. But recently I'm being matched even in the 1k and 3k games with gold and red star players with meteor clubs and I don't stand a chance especially on anything above a par 3. Fed up to loosing to opponents eagles on par 4 holes. Perfect swing is meant to be the most realistic game on their. But who knowingly would go up against a better player with superior clubs time after time in a real game. This is not the first time I've voiced my frustration about being constantly miss matched but nothing seems to be being done about it. Very disappointing and frustrating. Currently lying 70 th in the 2 star league. When I was before the changes a 3 star just on or around tier promotion. Giving up until get some answers and I suggest all of you in the same situation do the same.

Hi thanks for the feedback. Know I understand why I keep getting mashed by far better equipped opponents. Totally agree this needs sorting and quickly especially if you wish to keep the lower tier players involved and interested. It takes a lot of time and effort to earn coins to see them get eaten up in unfair match play games you have little or no chance of winning. I also will not be paying for the perfect pass to boost my club's until this issue is resolved. I feel your pick your opponent option to be a great idea. I'd rather wait and play a similar level opponent in a fair game than get pissed on from a height by a much superior player. Coins are to hard to come by. I will be looking for changes soon

Another reason for this might be if you challenge a friend to a match you can only play Tour 1, 2 and 3. If you lose, the gauge for that Tour drops below full and the only way to get it back is to play those Tours.

Nick - it's tough to try to pick up a game like this when it's been in the App Store for > 2 years. Unfortunately, with the changes PSG has made to the higher Tier matchmaking (mainly, two players cannot match in T7 until both have played 10 matches in between), it has pushed the top tier players down to low stakes to get those "in between" games in so they can head back to T7. To add to it, the players that don't want to go through the hassle of playing 10 matches in between have just stopped playing top tiers altogether, and moved down to the lower tiers to complete Perfect Pass (this is the majority of players).

I agree that the matchmaking system needs a revamp to take player level into consideration. The potential issue with this change (from the top tier player side) is that it will only add to matchmaking wait times in the higher tiers - something that will (and already has) cause the most active players to lose interest and go elsewhere with their time/money.

It really is a double-edged sword on the dev side - a change needs to happen, but no matter the change, they will be pissing off one player group or another.

I think a good compromise would be to have a "ranked" match lobby and an "open" match lobby; it could possibly just be a radio button added to the settings menu as well - where a player can check the "Ranked Matchmaking" box to be matched based on player level (at the sacrifice of longer matchmaking wait times), or can uncheck the box to be matched with the first available player (that also has the box unchecked) that enters the matchmaking lobby (at the sacrifice of potentially matching with a more experienced player).

The above suggestion gives the player the choice based on their preference, greatly reducing wait times for the players that aren't concerned who they are matching against, as well as protecting newer players from getting demolished in the lower tiers.

My $0.02 - I hope they can implement a change sooner rather than later.
