How about fixing career mode randomizing leaderboard s instead?

I played a round last night after installing the update.  I couldn't tell any difference to be honest, but from what they're describing in the the smattering of update notes and clues we've got thus far, I didn't expect to.

The first thing I did was go into the graphics settings options and see if they'd added an option to turn vsync OFF...  they haven't :(  That would be a great option for PS5 and Series X owners who also have a 120 Hz, VRR capable display.

Thanks, not sure for me. I may end up with an Xbox due to its upcoming game exclusives.  Might also wait for the pro versions since I have a gaming PC that will run all next gen stuff out there. (Just speaking for myself).   I also wonder will this console generation recover if you can't get one at a store for say another 2 years or so and, most all games are being made to PS4 /Xbox one specs due to the short supply.

Or.. maybe I'll just stay with my gaming PC for next gen.  Everything that's on x is on pc with the exception possibly of PGA tour
 EA is just not very pc friendly. No hockey, golf and last gen for Madden.  Meh
  Thegolfclub /pga 2k will prob continue on pc. So golf is covered

I miss the days and wish HB would openly communicate with us their ideas for things to come.

Yeah I mean surely they are in the middle of the next game if not near enough to a build where they could start promoting. I see Tiger is up and about now practicing (they shared it on Twitter last week I think) so must be getting some input from him.

I want news!

interesting today 2k/HB advertised on twitter and other sites about a Course Designer Job....(level Designer seems wrong to me) only thing which bothers me a little says still using the Unity Engine which i feel has not really moved on over 4 games physics and gameplay wise . Also you would have thought the courses would have already been planned for the next game, just hope HB/2k not moving away from real courses in the future.

I’m not sure I know enough about Unity’s engine to say it’s not good enough for a AAA sports title but the experience I’ve had with the Golf Club from the start is it’s an engine that’s consistently underwhelmed.
That may be a developer skill issue combined with a poor server build, to be honest I don’t know.
What does come across from HB is that the willingness to fix glaring bugs is not there & that reflects on their overall reputation. Of course when they started out it didn’t matter but they’re out in the bigger market now so they really need to up their skill set & get some serious QA testing done on the lead up to release.
They are not alone as many games are getting pushed out unfinished due to the pandemic but HB haven’t really had that excuse to lean on. In my opinion now is the time to stand out for the right reasons & push for a high quality finished game that the end user can be satisfied with.

I feel very much the same as you, With the last 3 games tgc2/tgc2019/2k21 i feel they released a product which could have been so much better with little improvements here and there just to make it better. Got to say as well with 2k21 the last few months since Divot derby and community course content was added it's nothing i want from a golf game i am sure 1000s love it but the golf game i want is playing real courses and really 2k21 was designed perfect for how real courses play just a real shame HB/2k moving away from those. That is where the designer is perfect really you can design what you want to play, just a shame real course content seems to cause real issue's for 2k/hb at the moment.

They know who the most talented designers are. I'm sure one of them would take the money on the side or full time.

Damn these randomising leaderboards in career. Just come back to play a little this weekend because I finally have some free time, hit an -8 1st round yesterday to lead by 1 from Patrick Reed at the Zurich Classic. Now after 3 holes I notice JT is above me by 1 (I dropped to -7).

JT was on -1 yesterday at the end of the round. Today he's -1 after 3 and -8 total. Patrick Reed is now -4 after being -3 for today so it's clear they e swapped around. This is another reason why JT is so OP. They just need to keep randomising so JT is at the top always. It's so F***ING annoying HB. Sort it out for Christ's sake.
