thanks for your quick reply.
2. I'm not sure what you mean with "hard data". I just played a set which went into tiebreak, in which I served every first serve as b1+b2 flat serve (without spin). My fastest serve was 220, average serve was 190 and slowest serve 157. No real life player, who is able to hit 220 would ever fail in hitting only 157 when trying to hit hard. I tried to make a screenshot of the match statistics, but unfortunately it didn't work (because I only have the demo-version yet??).
I have two further things, which are bothering me:
5. Playing with low skills decreases the pace way too much! I criticised the same thing years ago concerning TE 2013, because it makes matches too predictable and the game unrealistic when skills are low. Now I noticed, that the difference between high and low skills is even more drastic. That definitely went in the wrong direction to my taste.
6. I hate the "wrong guessing" when the own player hits balls which would go out. It does make some sense in situations when standing at the net and having very few time to decide, whether to take the ball or not. But in the game, it happens, that one is standing behind the baseline, and the player takes a ball volley, which is already long. Not even a recreational player should be that idiotic!
