EA recently released a major update for PGA Tour titled Season 8: Patch Notes 9. With the update arrived new features, bug fixes, and gameplay enhancements. One significant change made was the reward system for skill points. Below, I’ll discuss the new reward system and what it means for golfers.
EA Sports PGA Tour: Has the Reward System for Skill Points Changed?
Yes, the rewards system for skill points has changed drastically. Instead of 200 XPs being the threshold for one Skill Point, the new limit has been set to a low 50 XPs.
This means it will take golfers, new and old, a shorter time to register a Skill Point or more, and they will be able to upgrade their self-made Pro quicker. However, despite the great news that it won’t take long to level up your Pro, PGA Tour players will still be unable to max out their Pro.
Why Has the Rewards System Been Modified in PGA Tour?
The reward system has been modified in EA Sports PGA Tour due to the massive number of gameplay changes that came with Season 8. The putting system was changed, and some of the shot types in the game were modified. Recently updated in PGA Tour was the following:
- Pick Shot,
- Blast Shot,
- Finesse Shot,
- Knock Down Shot, and
- Stinger Shot.
I’m extremely in favor of the reward system changes made to the EA Sports PGA Tour. It maintains a uniqueness amongst all golfers in the game, existing Pros and Pros created by players.
It also allows your Pro to excel in specific areas of the game, but not all. This keeps the game of golf exciting and forces you to play to your strengths. As we’ve come to see in real-time, no golfer, or a very select few, has the perfect all-round game. And that’s the way it should stay.
This is all the information on the Reward System for Skill Points being changed in EA Sports PGA Tour. For more on what’s new this season, read about all the Massive Gameplay Changes Implemented With Season 8: Patch Notes 9.0.
