I really suck at this game!!!

Postby Rec1906 » 10 Jan 2017, 21:46

Hello!!! I play this game for less than a month now, i don't play a lot because I don't have time , but I'm terrible. I play at junior level 5. It's not like I'm being owned, because I beat my opponents many times. However I can't do the shots that the cpu does. For example: Slice- my slice is always the same and serves no use! But when the cpu uses it the ball comes with different effects and goes lower, making me actually work for the shot. When the cpu varies his shots I crumble!
I can't do a FH crosscourt short angle!! I know it must be a timming thing... Another thing: acceleration. though I feel like I'm doing it right it seems like the cpu acceleration shots go much faster than mine so I must be doing something wrong!! I have many questions... I feel like I'm wasting a lot of this game potential, because I can't bring variety to the gameplay. I'm a button masher and a bad one at it. I would greatly appreciate some tips to a noob like me that loves tennis but doesn't know how to play it

a quick advice : turn on the aiming preview and play a couple of hours in warm-up mode, and try to do all the different strikes in different situation till you start to get the hang on each one ; it'll then be easier to vary your strikes during the matches.

For the short acceleration, like other strikes, the most important is having a good positioning and an early preparation.

You can do short slice by the following combo: B2 > B2+up > B2
