SOWC - Questions and answers

Date Feb 14, 2017 Views 3,648

Hello Shot Online Community!

We know you still have many questions relating to SOWC, so we decided to gather most of them together.


1. I scored -3, my opponent got -1 and i still lost? What the...!!!???


SOWC is scored on hole by hole basis ( Very much like Match League). Its not your overall stroke count, but score for each hole that matters. You score better than your opponent -  you get 1 point.  So it is possible to have less strokes, but still loose the game.

Here is an example of such a game


Hole 1 2 3 4 5 Overal Strokes Overal score
Player 1 -1 -2 0 0 0 -3 2
Player 2 1 1 -1 -1 -1 -1 3

2. My records had changed, and I didn't play any new qualification rounds!

Do not panic. Round recorded on Monday is just a base for the SOWC. It will be initially used for your opponents in passive ( AI/ghost play). However, whenever you play SOWC actively, the holes you play will overwrite the record with most recent score. Here are some examples:

Game recorded on Monday:

Hole 1 Hole 2 Hole 3
0 -1 1
Hole 4 Hole 5 Hole 6
-1 -2 0
Hole 7 Hole 8 Hole 9
1 1 -1
Tie-Break    
4.2y    

First game in competitive round on Tuesday:

Hole 1 Hole 2 Hole 3
  0 -1
Hole 4 Hole 5 Hole 6
0 -2  
Hole 7 Hole 8 Hole 9
-1    
Tie-Break    
5.1y  

The record screen after that game will look like this ( red shows values that had changed):

Hole 1 Hole 2 Hole 3
0 0 -1
Hole 4 Hole 5 Hole 6
0 -2 0
Hole 7 Hole 8 Hole 9
-1 1 -1
Tie-Break    
5.1y

This also means that the most recent results will be used for your opponents!

3. My Qualification round was quite poor. If someone plays against record when I sleep, will I lose points?


No. You only lose or gain point while playing actively. You never lose points if someone defeats your record.
It does not mean record is not important: If you don't pay attention in qualifications, your opponents will have easier task of scoring points!

3. Its all fine and dandy, but what's in it for me?

In short, EXP.

First, all SOWC games are counted as 4 player game regarding basic hole EXP rewards.

Additionally, all EXP events, EXP items, Happy Course and such work for SOWC matches!

When the championship period is over, you get the appropriate reward, depending on your rank (please note that the S rank and better and awarded golbally, and there can be only ONE player with Champion rank, 1 player with SSS+ rank, 1 player with SSS rank, 6 ranked SS, etc. for other ranks there is no limitation)

Rank Place/points Prize (Box)
Champion 1. Place 50.00%
SSS+ 2. Place 35.00%

4. So how do you gets those ranks?

You get WP (World Points) for playing active matches in SOWC during the competitive period. The better was your play and better point difference, more WP  points you get. But be careful: if you lose a game when rated at least rank D, you will lose some points! (you don't lose points if you're under rank D)
