that's likely the "Service_TopSpin" talent in Players.ini , coz topspin skill doesn't influence the serve.


Indeed...it was 100 :shock: I wonder why

It doesn't seem so to me...it's more sliced than kicked

Lucian86,
I just checked and it's kicked (at least it was a few years ago, maybe he changed since then) ; both kick & slice serves give curved trajectory, but the kick breaks the curve on bounce, and it also gives a higher bounce => https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ijLU5PB44tc ... The ball bounces super high and the curve after bounce isn't in the same direction than before bounce... And it's labeled "Slice serve" by the TV broadcast... ':D

Can you create the texture for wood rackets in the next update or in TE4, please? More types for shorts and cuffs will be better imo. Hope you'll consider this, thank you! You created the most realistic tennis game!

Rotating animation (e.g Megyaem's Nadal defense anim).
Was playing warm up and I actually see that in certain situations, it will already happen as in

But it's not the general way it works

Forgot about it, but i'd like to second this.
Making it a game optional feature, would be nice (imo it could stay active for net play the way it works now though. as it's not as effective as it used to be).

What about the option to have a random opponent for Training and Single match modes? Like it would choose randomly from the Character Sheet.

I don't know if anyone suggested this already (there are 45 pages of topic, and I ain't reading them all lol), but I think a nice addition would be the possibility to call a LET to replay the last point. I was playing now and my computer had a small stuttering freeze when Federer was about to hit a forehand. Obviously, I couldn't reach the ball, and this point led him to break my serve and ultimately win the match, knocking me off of Masters Cup round robin. So I wish I had this option to replay just the last point, because it is frustrating to lose like that. This would be useful in situations like this.

Not sure if this has been mentioned but my suggestions for updates are:

-being able to choose what kind of celebration/anger animations you want
-having less bad line calls in elite controls i.e in every single match I play there are several balls that are clearly on the line yet are called OUT (I'm also in the right position to hit the shot too because the danger zone appears in green and not red).
-more variety of clothes/tennis rackets/shoes/hats
-changing the colours of the court surface (when I change sides in a match, the colour of the court changes and it becomes more difficult to play on that one side).
-stop the umpire shouting OUT when the ball is hit in the net

Heather Watson,
2- in/out calls are always perfect ; if it's not the case for you, it may be from a Mod that changed the court lines size

5- Sound Options -> Fault Calls -> Realistic

I think you should add the possibility to play the offline tour starting with the stats of the players used in the training/online games... so that you don't need to spend too much time to improve the player

Some/most of these might have been mentioned.. but i believe these are key improvements TE4 MUST have [not mentioned in TE4 planning]

Gameplay:
Shot varieties > reverse forehand, half-volley, swing-volley, running behind chasing lobs (now my player always have to back pedal first), angled cross court drop shot of drop shot (ie: djoker fav) etc.
Fancier varieties > not sure if possible, but maybe even leaping volleys, tweener etc? XD
Unpredictability > mis-return of heavy serve for example.. where serve returns pops up high due to miss-hit and not intentional lob
'Smarter' cpu > knows how to guess a put-away shot of opponent, instead of just stupidly waiting in the middle every time
Others > sliding on clay~ maybe even occasionally on hard court,

Also, would be nice if the game is more user-friendly.. modding is still difficult for me and many others, and online gameplay is huge headache with all the port or connection or whatsoever.. despite all the help available out there

Really hope all/most of these will come true!! Thanks manutoo!!
