As usual, thanks for getting back! I played a few more matches yesterday after posting my comments and I must say, after tweaking the controls for serving, I'm completely sold now! We can go for a super safe, always in serve assuming the risks of returning, go for a middle ground with a flat/slice/top serve or all in with all we've got!
Going back to the controller:
1) I get your point about being easy, I guess I'm just an old gamer at this point
For me when I see arrows that indicate going up/down or left/right makes sense to use a symmetric combination of buttons like the triggers, L1/R1 (LB and RB for xbox) or even the dpad, but I get your point and it's not a deal breaker for me.
2) I don't want to throw my controller to the screen, so consider it a win
The hardest thing to do for me is selecting the players on the top left corner, since they are in between the back pane and the attributes screen. I know it's a lot to ask to change that screen but so far it's the only place I feel more comfortable with a mouse.
3) Regarding the pointer, my indication to know in which pane I'm in is that it has a different color, so I don't need to keep an eye on the cursor anymore
In a completely different matter, I'd like to make a small suggestion: Add values on the camera section. Sometimes I move the angle a bit just for fun (It's actually really fun to do it) so it would be nice to have values so I know 50% (or 0 or 1, whichever scale your prefeer to use) is no angle at all. The same applies for zoom, height and the other values.
Thanks and keep it up! Looking forward for the future of the game!
