Little confused because in game documentation i can read this:

...When you serve using b1+b2, you try to do your fastest serve possible. If you power is equal to your consistency, then you have 70% chances of success. If your power is above your consistency, then you have less than 70% chances of success, and in the opposite case, you have more than 70% chances of success...

in this changelog about service manoo wrote this:
....
Gameplay : Percentage of B1+B2 & B1 serves in slightly lowered when having the Service Consistency above the Service Power ; this should noticeably raises the number of double faults for people not using the Button 2 to do their 2nd serve...

Due to text from Documentation I always thought that service consistency above service power gives more chance for 1st service to be in, now in changelog I read that service consistency that is above service power gives less chances for service to be IN, or in other words more chances for service to be out.
Is that some error in this change log text, maybe service consistency below service power makes less chances for service to land in the service field ?

I really would appreciate if manoo could explain more about service consistecy. Maybe I don't understand that in proper way. I understood that if service consistency is same as service power then strongest service has 70% chance to be in, and higher consitency than power raises that chance for some percentage while lower consistency than power makes that chance lower. Is that correct ? If it is correct way that I understood this then I don't understand this change that should raise the chance of sending service to out with consistency higher than power. Maybe is error in this snetence in manoo's text and that sentence maybe should be opposite (that happens in case consitency is lower than power).

One more "role" of consistency stats parameter is that it is involved in calculation of service speed. Upper limit in service speed is determined with service power (ie in fair mode with 70% service speed max speed should be around 208 kmph +- 2), there is also probaly some lower margin for strongest service speed. What service speed will be in some particular service is calculated with statistic formula that has difference between consitency and power as variable. I would like to know does higher difference between consistency and service makes avg. service speed higher or lower, or what we should expect in average service speed with consitency higher than power and vice versa ?

online experience is better than ever I think, I should play with someone with 300ms or more but so far with ping 220 and 260 is almost the same, that damned turtle doesn't appear as much as before ':D

I like most of the changes...Very nice. Positioning is very hard and I hit incredible awful errors or just a bad shot as soon as my opponent hits a bit better shot but I guess just takes practice. Also in all matches I've played so far the game has been like slow motion, even though the ping has been okay. Wonder if this is some unintended side effect.

Bug 1 (I guess): in world tour, I tried to take control of player 2, and I can't move it. It's Okay with player 1.

Bug 2: kicked serve to the side with b1b2 is always a let ball, both for left- and right-hander.

i feel really sceptic (as always :o) after playing 3 sets with sylvie this morning. he can confirm i had difficulties and he almost won this match.
firstly, the serve is really ridiculous sometimes. i never had the feeling to have the slightest precision. my serve percent wasn't bad, but it was never on a line or so. slice serve is now almost useless, always out. i think it's the real weird part of this update.
concerning the defensive game, it's ok, i was able to defend very well, and he was defending better than me (we both had 0 topspin). but it has to be tested against a pure spiner (hello tog and schmith, i play you when you want :D).
i was doing unexpecting errors when i wanted to hit an acceleration, so i am a little bit confused.
the net game has been lowered as expected, but the problem isn't the volley, it's clearly the smash. with 40% in smash, i was almost unable to hit a clear one (always out or totally unpowered). i think sylvie can confirm it was often pathetic.
i am surprised to see manu obeyed at every point serena pointed (no offense guys), but one more time, he decides to add all this things during a great tournament (after the ao, it's iw :s).

The worst update ever in TE...not much else I can say. Doubles are unplayable, and volleys are totally retarded...it's random luck. Manutoo needs to fix thhe doubles volleys to what they were as this is absolutely meaningless. No matter how skilled you are...Singles seem so so, not that bad.

Also, what is the random slowness in matches with decent ping...while it's slightly improved compared to before for high ping matches...

For playing against the CPU, I like the new update. I like the new anims. Though, some things I'm not sure of. I thought the kick serve was good like it was before. I don't know if it's supposed to be that short in the service box, with the new update. Seems a little too short. And, I really don't think the short shot is all that useful. The accelerated short shot is fine, but the slower short shot seems useless, to me at least. I don't use it, and wish the CPU didn't use it. I think it should be replaced with a Fernando Gonzalez-type shot that is super fast, but with very little precision.
Also, would be nice to see a dedicated/separate Nadal-shot button via the CtrlExtraButton parameter, like how the topspin and slice shots can have their own buttons.
