World Tour - More experience points in challenger?

Postby iLoveRF » 11 Mar 2017, 23:52

Hi Manutoo,
I'm playing in world tour mode (full career) and I've reached at the end of my second year. Something I've noticed now is that I get more experience points playing in challenger tournaments compared to ATP 250 or 500 events. This really doesn't make any sense to me, why should I get less points playing against higher level opponents? I still want to improve my character's stats but because I'm in Top 5 I have to play in all big tournaments. (Difficulty is at Master 10)
Thanks.

Hello,

you get less points in qualies, but you get the same amount on XP in main draws of challenger and 250/500 and up.

This is not true for me. I just tested again to make sure that I'm not mistaken. I saved my game and loaded it twice to play in two different tournaments in the same week.

ATP 250
Exp points before first match: 66
Exp points after first win: 74 // This was the 2nd round because of my ranking.

Challenger
Exp points before first match: 60
Exp points after first win: 76 // This was the 1st round in the main draw.

Is this supposed to be this way? I'm confused now because in the documentation it says that I should get between 10 to 20 points for my wins but I only got 8 points when I played in the ATP 250 event.

Also can these values be changed with Mods?

It is because you have a bye on 1st round, so the game thinks you already won a match and give you less point for the next victory. It should be fixed in the patch here => topic15-27288.php .

You can change the points like you want ; see here => topic1-472.php .

Thanks for the response, I downloaded the new version but when I tried to install it says that I would lose my saved games because they're not compatible. Should I install the patch or the complete setup? I don't want to lose my saved games.

Also I'm a bit confused because I'm on this version now: Tennis Elbow 2013 v1.0h (Build 114-2016.6.1) but apparently the latest version is Tennis Elbow 2013 v1.0i (Build 114-2016.6.1), so why are the dates the same if they are different versions?

You might have reinstalled Windows or something like this, to get this message.

You can normally safely install the patch over your current version. If you have some doubts, just backup this whole folder 1st, to be on the safe side : C:\Program Files (x86)\Tennis Elbow 2013 .

For the date, I didn't update them since a while because there's no big change, only few small things.

hi, so I've recently got a chance to test this issue again. I installed the latest patch with no problems (v1.0i) but it seems like this problem still exists.

ATP 250
Points for 1st win: 5 // 2nd round
Points for 2nd win: 4 // Quarterfinals
Points for 3rd win: 3 // Semifinals
Points for 4th win: 20 // Finals

Total points for winning the tournament: 32

Challenger
Points for 1st win: 16 // 1st round
Points for 2nd win: 8 // 2nd round
Points for 3rd win: 5 // Quarterfinals
Points for 4th win: 4 // Semifinals
Points for 5th win: 10 // Finals

Total points for winning the tournament: 43

So I'm still getting fewer points because I'm getting a rest in my first rounds which doesn't make any sense.

PS: I'm using my old saves while playing on this latest version although I don't think it should matter.

Thanks for the fix but this new patch made all of my saved games invalid :( And I didn't backup my install folder this time.

Ooops, sorry, you "enjoyed" a new feature of TEM2/TE4 a bit too early (I changed the saved game format to allow easier change & addition).

Anyway, I just fixed that and you can download once more the patch.
