Manu after playing the latest update with the new Player modelq i world way that the only thing that Will make the game perfect is adding animations. Sliding animations, back running animation and some approach animations. If you correct this the game Will be out of this world! Please make some extra animations!

Hi manutoo. Not sure if this has been suggested before, but will there be a practice option for the serve in warm-up? That would be a cool feature to add. Will buy the full game upon release, can't wait. Cheers!

Hello Manu.

Maybe they already consulted him, sorry in that case.

But it would be good for a tournament to play on auxiliary courts in the first rounds. Will it be incorporated? Or the possibility for 2D courts at least.

juanabolche,
you can see the auxiliary court in the screenshots here : topic15-30551.php .
I'll add the possibility to define additional courts (eg: 2D) for big tournaments.

Could we please bring a "reputation option".
Let me elaborate it.
I've been playing this game since a long time.
Still there is something super weird : some people give me a bad reputation, but keep spamming my games to play with me.
For example, on a regular basis, 2 guys called "wildheart" and "sales8BG" enter my game. They are slightly over 2k elo. I beat them like 95% of time.
After every single game with them, my reputation score decreases.
Funny fact right? I'm supposed to be a damn horrible player but they can't stop playing with me!
I would like to create an option which would block your possibility to give a reputation score to someone after you've already done it a short while ago.
Let's say : you can give a reputation + or - once a week?
I don't mind much about reputation since I've met super cool people with bad reputation and vice versa.
But I think some people sometimes don't join my games because they believe I'm not a fair player.

Hey Manu, been playing TE since 2011, almost entirely career mode. Thought I'd give some positives and critiques of the alpha so far from my own perspective.

Positives:

1) The slice and dropshot are much better than in TE2013. You can actually play a Feli Lopez type character now and slice most of your backhands with the right stats. The dropshot is also really good now for catching players standing too far behind the baseline.

2) I know a lot of people seem to disagree, but I feel that the slowed down side-to-side movement is overall better for the game. It makes the 40-60 shot rallies that were common in TE 2013, less so.

3) The shot system seems to be more realistic, with badly judged shots hitting the net and such.

4) The courts and graphics look really good so far. I'm looking forward to seeing the new players with facial customisation.

Suggestions:

1) The volleying system needs a big overhaul. It actually feels worse than TE 2013 currently. You need to make the volleys cleaner, there's too many mishit ones that just land in the middle of the court or go out. You also really need to add proper half-volleys and low-volley animations. Currently, if you run towards the net, and you aren't quite close enough, you'll be forced to hit a ground stroke which will go out. Having proper half and low volleys would solve this.

2) Return of serve needs to be made less effective, particularly on the second serve. Currently, you can stand right on the baseline and hit return winners off second serves with little problem. Same goes for the AI returning your second serves. This makes playing a serve-volleyer even harder.

3) Heavy topspin isn't as effective against backhands (particularly single-handed) as I was hoping for. My suggestion would be to reduce the efficiency of backhands on high balls in general (one-handed more than two) and add a talent that allows them to bring the backhand close to parity with the forehand in this regard (so you can model guys with strong high backhands like Djoko, Nalbandian and Guga).

4) It'd be nice to have a system where we can customise an AI player's behaviour a bit. For example, make a player who uses a lot of drop shots, or slices his backhand all the time. I think you might be looking into this already though?

Finally, I'd like to ask what some of the talents do. I haven't noticed any gameplay changes with the "ball feeling" and "early ball hit" talents. Are these implemented yet, or do they give only minor bonuses?

I agree with this 100%

Also, i think it would be awesome if we could somehow have a third animation for forehands so everyone can have a looping forehand, a flat one and a normal one for usual top spin type shots..

topspinbackhand,
4) I'll add the realtime coaching values into the Players.ini , at some point ; try to do a CPU vs CPU match to see how it works.

Note : don't ask stuff not related to suggestions here ; open another topic, it'll be fine. :yes: (I'm supposed to re-read the whole topic several times, so I'd rather keep it on point :fear: )

hey manutoo

will you add a button, that when you press it, it will show a replay of the previous shot with different angles? (highlight)

it is a feature in many tennis games, and it would be a lot more realistic! :P

yiph2,
press F1... ;) (I might add automatic changes of camera angles though, but only for 3D courts, obviously)

thanks!
this would make the game very realistic, just like on tv!

but what about mac users? we have to press 2 buttons (fn and f1)? could we change the button?
