Too many retired players

Postby Spicer » 07 Jul 2018, 20:16

The game engine seem to be too eager to retire players a bit too early.

Here's a quick sample of big names who retired in 2018 in my game and not in real life:

Maria Sharapova
Carla Suarez Navarro
Timea Baczinsky
Sam Stosur
Andrea Petkovic
Sara Errani
Sabine Lisicki (well almost but not quite yet)
Alize Cornet
Varvara Lepchenko
Pauline Parmentier
Vera Zvonareva
Mihaela Buznarescu


And in 2019:
Serena Williams
Dominika Cibulkova
Agnieska Radwanska
Angelique Kerber
Elena Vesnina
Viktoria Azarenka

I know we can manually add years to the RankPerYear variable in Players.ini but it's cumbersome to do that on many players and estimating their ranking is not easy.

Isn't there a global variable that could be bumped up a bit to make players retire 3-5 years later than currently?

Oh, and by the way: Looking at the list of Retired players, we can select the age column to sort the table but it doesn't actually refresh the list

Hello,

I'll raise by 1 the average retiring year for the women, but some of these women retire at an exceptional age so they'll have to be manually handled if you want to see there for more years.

For Cornet, it was a bit strange though as she's only 28, so I checked and found a bug that prevented her to go on till 30 like wanted. It'll be fixed in next update (when starting a new game).

Sorting by age the retired list will be possible in the next update.

Great, thanks.

Could you expose that variable in one of the ini files?

Ok, for next update, you'll be able to add these lines in your Tennis.ini :
[WT_WTA]
MinRetiringAge = 31
(or [WT_ATP] with 32)
And change it to whatever you wish... :yes:
