Ok, so since i can't play tourneys now, i'm playin in some gamerooms. Before or during the game, when in between holes shouldnt we be able to hit the triangle and see the level of the other players? When i toggle through triangle, i think i come to the screen where their level is supposed to be, but all i see is japanese characters, not numbers.

do they have a different number system? I know this is a dumb question but I know absolutely nothing about the japanese language.

No, their numbers are the same....at least they are for the stroke count and points, and the ranking of players in a tourney.

The levels are names rather than numbers, eg level 20 = "MR".

Lv.01 - 初段
Lv.02 - 二段
Lv.03 - 三段
Lv.04 - 四段
Lv.05 - 五段
Lv.06 - 師範

Lv.08 - 奉行 : Magistrate
Lv.09 - 将軍 : General/Shougun

As a side note, the way levels are displayed in the game appears to be abbreviated. For example, I can recall from memory that level 15 is shown as a single character while level 16 is shown as two characters. For level 20, only the "MR" is shown.

Yeah, the みんごる is omitted, instead of "Level ___" they just show the last one/two character(s), which is the level title, instead of saying "Level Mr." or "Level Samurai."

*likes his God of Heavens title*

Updated, thanx.

I guess it was just hard for me to see it through the other characters before, but those levels look much more familiar now.

Now that so many G0s demote with the new grading system, it's nice to understand what level they are. Makes me feel a bit better about getting edged out for first in a 50 person tournament last night by a level 18 "Man".

Wasn't "HSG Man" like the uber title in either HSG3 or 4?
