I found this problem as well. I'm rated 516 but have only 2 rounds below it (297 [I was trying to learn a hole for the fun of it] and 509), with multiple 900+ rounds.

On another note, just got my 2nd ace earlier today.

And it's working. I'm going to try out a couple of Explorers now. I'm such a mark lol.

My biggest complaint so far is that sometimes you'll throw a very soft layup that skips 50-100 feet past for no reason at all.

Your issues with the Rec players notwithstanding, you still get the ratings for the rounds that you don't get XP for. In your case, that will be once they fix the Rec ratings issue with (hopefully) the update this weekend. For me, on the rounds that don't finish, those rounds still count towards my rating (I have a spreadsheet where I keep up-to-the-second updates of my ratings to double-check against the "official" ratings)

Ha I wondered if we would start getting DGV ITBs.

If you’re playing the Open (where you can repeat the round with the same holes and wind), you can switch out to a specialty disc when needed

Accurate/Glide or Accurate/Sticky Pure - all top players have one or the other (probably 2/3 prefer the glide)
Accurate/Wind Break Fuse - see below
Accurate/Wind Break Explorer - that particular Fuse and Explorer are both in every top player’s bag
Accurate/Extra Glide or Accurate/Wind Break Musket
The last two that are in every top player’s bag you have to play for a while to get (playing multiplayer is the fastest way to level up):
Light/Big Skip Ballista and Light/Extra Glide Ballista - these two make almost all of the Par fours reachable with the right wind
That is interesting. I'll try all of these eventually though I still have not been offered a Ballista (I'm Level 15 - will they eventually be offered on Multiplayer or do I have to do something else?). Been using the first Compass, Explorer and Musket I was offered as well as the Recoil, Pioneer, and Accurate/Glide Pure (though I still constantly 3 putt or slide into trouble when I try to throw them in).

Calculating your rating (a brief primer)

Under your "Player Profile" you'll see a tab for your previous rounds. Those 25 rounds (and those 25 only) are used to calculate your rating. Recent glitches notwithstanding, if you play at least one Pro Tour round (regardless of division), your rating will update at the close of that tour (every five days).

If all of your last 25 rounds are from multiplayer - your rating is a raw average of those rounds.
For each Pro Tour round in your last 25 - those rounds are counted twice. So if you've played 2 tour rounds in the last 25, the total will be divided by 27 instead of 25 (the pro tour rounds are entered into the total twice)

You start having Ballistas as an option for leveling up beginning at level 20

How do you factor in the wind?
I find myself pretty much ignoring it but Simon and you have made references to the 'right wind'. Part of my problem is the wind usually seems very low <5mph which is insignificant IRL but is it a factor in DGV?

I'm level 24 and have a couple of (so far useless) Recoils, but mostly just get offered more mids and putters. Still holding out for that Recoil or Ballista that will actually outdrive my extra glide Musket!

Think of the wind as a scale 1-5 instead of in mph where a 1 does basically nothing to the disc and a 5 has a high impact.

Don’t think of the wind in terms of MPH

5 is max and will really mess with anything longer than 20 feet - so will 4 for that matter

1 is barely negligible

Obviously 2 and 3 are somewhere in between
