Eagle, you all really have to do something about the yardage of holes during the match playoffs. Having 350-yard Par 3’s is just unrealistic and is really frustrating many player’s into quitting your game because of this. This is the most realistic golf game as for as gameplay, but when you make it unrealistic and unfair in the playoff system for many players it disgruntles them and is driving them back to your completion like golf clash, gold star and golf king. These games are similar to arcade games which is fun for kids and just to joke around with, but with your game one can experience the similarity to a real round of golf and with clan play makes the game very enjoyable. Unfortunately, most players mainly play match play and probably 85% of those matches end up in a playoff. So, you both birdie the hole and here comes the playoff with a 350-yard Par 3 and a new playing person gets up and can only hit the ball 250 yards so he will pretty much instantly lose the match without even having a chance. Just not cool guys, you should at least put the match playoff with a maximum distance of 200 yards so all players have a chance to win. I am telling you, people are quitting and deleting your app due to this. So why ruin the realistic part of the game by making the playoff holes so unrealistic. Just a thought but I can assure you I speak for 99.9% of the people playing your game at entry and superior levels. Fix this mess please…..
Good afternoon! I fully support Gypsy on the match play being unfair with the long par 3s to determine the winner.
That being said, I think a way forward to ultimately determine the better player, a point system should be implemented. Here is my suggestion:
Every match consists of two complete holes and each player is awarded an additional point per GIR and FIR. Their end scores will always determine who wins but the points will be the tie breakers. If after 2 holes, both players are tied in both score AND points, they will play a closest to the pin on a reachable par 3 to level the playing field between all players.
Yes, this will lead to longer matches but will more accurately determine who is the better player and awarding the win to them.
Plus, if this point system is added, so many more things such as statistics/achievements/badges can be implemented for FIR/GIR percentages. There’s a lot you can do with this idea if there’s a way to work it into the game.
Let me know what you think! I’m always happy to give you all promising ideas. This is by far the best mobile golf game I’ve played and I hope the continued support and suggestions from the game community will help to steer the ship in the right direction!
So are playoff holes always par 3’s? (Sorry just started playing match mode only about 20 matches under my belt and few playoffs...)...If so why only par 3s? That’s what all those other games do, as Gypsy pointed out, golf clash (where I switched from), etc. If going for realistic a medium difficulty par 4 should be used. But it could be a par 3 too or even a par 5. When is the last time watching pga and they announce “ok closest to hole wins”...
Have now played quite few playoff holes now and wow Gypsy you weren’t kidding. But it isn’t just the absurd length of holes. Playoff holes from what I’ve seen are decided by clubs almost every time. One player has club that matches the distance and the other has a driver (example) that will go over green and 3 wood that won’t make it to the green. It really is just a roll of dice and hope hole matches your clubs. Not really enjoying this aspect of game. Would really like to see these “implemented” club distance gaps reworked somehow. Max distances I get it is the MIN distance I have issue with. Almost everyone’s club setups there is a distance that player cannot hit to. These par 3 playoffs are not a good way to determine the winner. Par 4 would be much better and if still tied how about a closest to hole as Gypsy indicated no longer than 200yd so all players have a chance at least.
Good day everyone! Please know that we are reading all of your comments and we appreciate each of you who shared their thoughts and ideas here in this thread. This is noted. We'll discuss this matter with our developers and let's see what we can do about this. Have a Perfect day all! Thank you for your continued support!
Thanks for the response support I am crossing my fingers a solution can be found! I have been experiencing first hand in what Gypsy posted (having to try to land on bridges looking for some kind of bounce because holes are 351 yds over water with 8mph headwind). Getting quite frustrating and even though I really do enjoy playing very much the 0 chance of winning playoff hole is getting me close to jumping ship. And leveling clubs up as of right now it would take me close to 3 weeks (not kidding) to evolve one 4* club. Then I still need to level it up....
Please Eagle support. Please change the match play format. If we are tied on hole 1 then let us play another hole and on until someone wins a hole. Closest to hole is so not a good Solution at all. So please please can we have a change
While I am new to PS, I can hold my own until the tie breaker.....I hit 3 better shots and make a short put, then we go to the tie breaker and I am 12 ft and opponent is 2.5 ft. Where did this newly gained talent come from??? AND. ..........WHY do we have to go to a tie breaker on the mound par 3 surrounded by water. My 3 wood is too short and my driver goes over the back. Yesterday an opponent and I hit 6 balls in the water on that hole. Lastly, if I have 922 trophies why do I get matched to a 1136 trophy player with gold clubs, how is that fair?
