I'm not very well liked anymore, but I'll be glad to play on the trad team if it gets going :)

I can certainly get somethine organised for the Trad contingent of the game. Let me have a word with the other higher ups and start you off with somthing like a Trad Only Matchplay bracket. By doing it this way we can gauge the number of trad players actively using the site and preogress from there.

I bet I could do some traditional now that I have been playing OT2, so even us adv users would love to play.

I'd play, it'd be nice to have on my resume.

Yep, got 3rd to last all locked up here!

Seriously though I'd definitely get down on some of this.

I want in on this for sure, I actually played a trad only g0 tourny last week that actually filled with enough ppl and placed a decent 5th. It was fun and a change from advanced for sure.

I'm thinking like Yuna, so I'd probably sign up just to test that theory. ;)

Thank you Inter.. your efforts in this area are MOST appreciated...To all the adv. players showin interest...fabulous..great to see ... very excited to have a chance to play against the top level players in a trad setting. BTW.. not to be a "trad team" like PH mentioned....no team vs team...just peeps competing against each other while every1 uses trad settings... just throwin that out there now so NOBODY interprets this to be trad vs adv in any way. We have all argued plenty on that topic so don't rehash it here, that aint what this is about. Again thanks to Interyernin and those forementioned "higher-ups", look forward to more on this...

My bad Ed. I seen adv vs. trad somewhere in the original post, and thought that's what this was...I was wondering why everyone kept mentioning playing w/ trad. Anyways though, I'd still like to participate.

interyernan

Yep this will be a Match play bracket, were all players must used the Traditional swing bar. If a player who used advanced wants to test their arm and try participating they MUST use traditional. I will be setting the boards up in the next couple of days so look out for the thread and the sign ups.

Yes I was in that tourney too....is it possible to choke away a tournament after only 7 holes? -7 after 7.....finsh I think -8 maybe....so stupid

Never heard of Trad vs Adv tourney before, looks interesting.

Tried to set up a Trad only competition before but didn't work out though. (maybe will do it properly next time).

I sent you a message fox. If you can put together something and message me I am sure we can do it again. There will be more traditional players this time around.

I do remember u trying to do that Fox. Also I have sent u a PM as well about a Trad. Competition.
There has been a few ideas floating around and it looks like people are interested in playing. :)

interyernan
02-17-2009, 04:51 PM
An idea that i had which i have spoke to Shaq about is because there seems to be a lot of interest from not only the Trad players but some of the advanced player who want to test there arm and play as Trad is this.

A simple two sided Match play bracket, on the right side of the bracket all the Official Trad players, on the left side all the Advanced players who want to try a comp in Trad. The bracket follows it's normal formula - Round 1,2 QF, SF until you have the face off between the True Trad Champion and the Advanced/Trad Champion and they do battle in the Final over 36 holes of Match Play with each player choosing a course of their choice to play on.

How does that sound to everyone?

MasonR
02-17-2009, 04:53 PM
I think if you eliminate the chance of the best two actual Trad players facing off in the final you'll see some people disagree with the bracketing (as we've seen in BigCup and MotG brackets).

interyernan
02-17-2009, 05:04 PM
Fair point, but by doing the individual bracketing like this the seeding would obviously be discussed for both sides. I think we can safely say that BGunner would be Trad seed 1 so who ever Trad seed 2 would be placed on the at the bottom end of the Trad side of the bracket so in theory they shouldn't meet until the "Semi-Final" with the winner playing the victor from the advanced//trad side.

The winner from the Trad bracket would be classed as the Trad Match play Champion but it would be like having a memorial match to play the best of the "advanced playing as Trad".
It sounds right in my head, maybe its not, the best way i can describe it is to compare to our English Footbal League. Before the start of every Season over here the winners of the League play the winners of the major cup from the Season before in something called the community shield. Although it is a real peice of silverwear the comp is not considered overly importnant as it is used as a springboard for the up and coming season. I'm not sure what you guys have in America that is similar but i remember seeing last week on Sky a match between the two divisons/conferences in American Football (sorry if i have brutalised the terminology of your football league - i have no clue about it).

stillsing
02-17-2009, 06:01 PM
sounds great any which way to me... prefer mixed up seeds instead of adv vs trad... but again i would be happy with any of the above...

MasonR
02-17-2009, 11:06 PM
Good point, I can see where you're coming from and I guess it would be more in the spirit of Adv/Trad vs Trad/Trad.

OthersGirl
02-18-2009, 04:15 AM
Sounds like fun :)) I think it would be kind of interesting... Though i can't really see the Adv/Trad beating out the Trad/Trad side LOL, still, I'm interested in all of these crazy "online" tournaments and competitions. Anything to break up the monotony of the "same-old, same-old" :)

interyernan
02-18-2009, 04:39 AM
If you are interested in signing up for some of the comps check out the Match Play Premier League OG. The sign up thread is still running for that and the interst has been really good.

ElectroFox
02-18-2009, 11:30 AM
No opinion about the Adv/Trad etc... but for the Trad only competition, yes might need help from you guys - Shaq & Roughdawg. Will let you guys know when its to be rebirth.

And interyernan's match play league looks cool too.

Roughdawg4

Yeah, sorting by money earned would be great. That means we would be making money for playing. I think i could be a bit more serious about it if that was the case.











If you are wondering WTF was happening here, just imagine what RD is doing right now ;D

Yeah but that still doesn't prove the game developers <b>intentionally</b> programmed rabbit and turtle into the game. I think you're all cheaters.

Kbongg
02-27-2009, 11:22 AM
Well, they obviously intended for the turtles/rabbits to be there. But the use of them i think is what was in question. But i know you are against them and that is ok. Have fun in minna G0 without them btw.

uh, what's being discussed here?

cmonnnnn peeps, the group of nerds that programmed this game know every facet of it. This is a fact. They made it, they know about it.
They created rabbit and turtle icons to indicate that pi was missed, and that a shank will follow.
They know about alternate fairways because they kept them in bounds.
To state that rabbits/turtles are unfair is to state that water bounces and flag balls are unfair.
All were put into the game purposefully.

The other group of nerds that got paid to test it also know about it, because they play for a living.
I'm sure that those nerds figured it out pretty quickly.
They also figured out that skull shots are too far out of range and are of no advantage to try on purpose.
Ask any one of the many gamers on this site who have completed any difficult game 100% (or further, wha?) about all of the little intricacies that are advantageous which most people who play that game will never discover.

The problem is, this game shouldn't be compared to golf. It's not golf.
Some broad is flying around in the air on Euro 10. Not golf.
There are similarities, obviously, but my diaper would overload if someone posted a video of a riser chip they had on a real golf course.

or something
