    So i can now only play one daily tournament a day?
    One season = 6 daily tournaments from Tuesday to Sunday.

    You play one daily tournament and your score goes towards your season total. The season champion is crowned on Monday and the next season starts the following day.

    But i can't play a whole season worth in one or two days, then not be able to play again for a few days?

    In the past, i could play three in a day, couldn't i, then would have less open to me the next day.

    Which seemed a bit better, to me.

    You used to be able play up to 3 rounds a day. Of course you could play one or two but the highest players always played all 3. They always cycled each day regardless of whether you played one, two or three rounds the previous day. So every day you always played up to 3 different rounds. A little known fact is that the tournaments cycled at 11am each day in the UK, not midnight as stated :p.

    In the new format, you play a single round each day except Monday. So, one round on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. This makes it much easier to jump in and out of the daily tournaments as if you missed a day in the old format, your rank would plummet and it'd take you ages or an exceptional day to catch up.

    So to recap, you play one round a day and it goes towards a weekly total. On Monday, the weekly results are announced, archived and then a new season starts with everyone at 0 on Tuesday.

    Hmmmm...i'm not sure there were many people that arsed about losing rank through missing the odd tournament, because most of us mere mortals were posting embarrassing scores of round in 9-holer in a measly 3 under. :D

    I just preferred to be able to play more than one round a day.

    Well, there's always the graded tournaments in the Online lobbies. Of course we'll be setting up games over here on EG at some point as well.

    ...and if all else fails, Stroke mode is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year*

    * Unless you don't have your Vita with you, it crashes and can't be recovered etc.

    Heh, I'm second on the EG leaderboards, some 500k points behind you ! :o

    Fired it up last night to see the new changes, new tourney style, and a few random games. Quite good, although there were far too many die-hards blocking the ranking positions. Seems the G1/G2 players were having to fill the GF games because there's wasn't many folk online last night. Booooo.

    Needing 10 players from 15 to validate a ranked match is a tad too high methinks.

    @oldschoolsoviet

    Is that the Shot Ranking? I barely look at that :p

    Until all the G3 players get through the filtered G2/G1 tours, the G3 rounds will be full of big winners. Just be patient and keep at it. I'm still trying to fight my way up :)

    Are there any videos online of these people going round 9 holes in 10 under etc?

    How the hell are people getting around without making one single error?

    It's ridiculous.

    Practice makes perfect (most I've managed is -12 but I'd have to fluke at least one more eagle and a perfect round to get it).

    Takes a lot of consistency and a few lucky breaks to crack the -9 barrier. You'll find that using the expert characters can help you get the eagles on the par 5's a lot easier.

    Thought I'd give this an hours play at lunch time. It's good fun, although I can see very little difference between this and the last version I played on PSP. One thing I noticed was that the brightness slider on the Vita wouldn't let me go to 100%. I wanted to, because I was outside and it was a bit sunny.

    Anyone else had that? Tis a bit annoying.

    Is there a character beyond Yuna that's got better impact stats?

    I'm really struggling with impact - I dunno if it's just because I've switched from the circle meter that I use on PS3 to the swing gauge instead, but I've had really good rounds go to pieces due to early/late impact.

    Whilst drunk on the train home on Friday (!) I bought Lani, but failed to realise that her impact stats were worse than Yuna and playing with her has been a disaster. :o\

    @binky spent all weekend fiddling with my Nexus 7 so haven't been on the Vita. Will pop on tonight.

    Let's pick an evening, a time and a lobby and see who shows!

    Re: the Daily Tournament stuff does anyone know, do I have to be constantly online to play them or can I stick my Vita on now to start the tournament and then go outside?

    Not sure - as long as it's able to upload your round at the end it *should* be ok, but don't take my word for it!

    I believe you only need to connect once to get the tournament information and then once to register the score.

    At the end of the round, if you're not able to upload the score, another visit to the Daily Tournament page after the round should give you a sound prompt to register your score later.

    hmm, not sure it's uploaded. It's detected that I've played the round but I'm not sure it's submitted a (rubbish) score. Next time I try that I'll turn on Personal Hotspot on my phone. Instant-Vita3G! :D

    I had a horrible round on the daily tournie today, double bogeyed the first two holes. The Vita is too expensive to hurl against the wall unfortunately.

    Bit like me, -3 on the last hole when the average was -1, I thought to myself, this could be a good score here! Oh wait a minute, TRIPLE BOGEY the last hole!!! Even par for me then :(

    If anyone finds themselves bumming around in a lobby waiting for a game just post it in here and maybe we can get a game going.

    Hope to get some dlc soon; new courses wouldn't go amiss.

    Right - yesterday's tourny was set with 'impossible pin' - and people are still posting -12.

    Finding it a little hard to believe.

    I posted a -10 - which is about all I can do on that course's back 9 as I can never figure out the correct position for the 18th hole 2nd shot.
