Counter Skill

Postby Stajus » 21 Jun 2017, 22:51

Hey manutoo, can you please clarify the Counter skill (not the counter style)...I forgot the details :sweat:

1) Does the counter skill affect b1+b2 shots in rallies?
2) Does it affect the b1+b2 return of serve?
3) What are the benefits of having the counter skill for acceleration shots?

4) Or does the counter skill only affect normal b1 shots, i.e. if my opponent hits a deep fast ball I can counter it with b1 back deep and without making an error :fear:

Found this:

"The counter skill is the ability to use the incoming ball speed to send it back faster. So the counter skill gives you a speed bonus of up to 7.5 km/h on your normal and topspin strikes when the ball is coming really fast."

"Moreover, the higher your counter skill is, the less you are constrained by fast incoming balls, but the slow incoming balls are also a bit less easy for you."


4) So, the counter skill doesn't affect acceleration shots at all?
5) Just the normal and topspin strikes?

Hello,

1) Almost not

2) Same

3) If you do an acceleration on a very fast ball (because you take it early), you lower the handicap to hit it; ie: your acceleration will lose a bit less speed from hitting a difficult ball

5) Mostly ... ;)
