A new ‘Worldwide Arena’ where all Shot-Online players will now be
able to record their scores of the World Championship and check their
ranking for the tournament has now been included. The ‘World Ranking’
records all of the scores from the World Championship and uses a
realistic method of calculating scores that was actually adopted from
the PGA tournament methodology. The world rankings for the World
Championship will be determined according to all World Championship
scores recorded in the Arena for the past one year.
The new ‘My Course Ranking’ will allow players to check their ranking
among all the players around the world. The average score of each
course is calculated and the ranking is determined accordingly. Course
records will also be updated every 6 months.
An updated Messenger will help players manage the friend list, guild
member list and graduate fellows list all in one form. A new note
system will be added and players will also be able to set their status
(online, busy, etc.). In addition, the friend registration process has
been changed, now requiring both sides to register. The limitation of
the friends list has also been set to a maximum of 200.
New upgrades have been made to sound quality and added sound effects,
including high quality BGM’s for the new course.

providing more realistic and stereoscope expressions for the
characters. The new multi texture will provide more realistic visuals
on all courses and more delicate and transparent expressions for the
characters. Enhanced face motion and animation are also included.
New Quest features with an NPC will provide quests in which players
need to complete a certain condition in order to gain a particular
item, EXP, NG or other special items. The Quests for lower level users
will help to educate the beginners on how to play Shot-Online and
newly added Quests for mid and high level users will provide new goals
to players who just aim to level up.
A new Caddy System will provide help and record player scores, with
additional functions following soon.
An enhanced user loading on the square will improve the loading time
when players enter the square, allowing for no delays.
The new In-Game Item Mall will allow players to use the Item Mall in
the game. A “Send as Gift” function has also been added, allowing
