Well, not sure about it, but there may be some 'issue' with this one :
- Gameplay : the new Auto-step back feature makes you start to run in the opposite direction a tiny bit faster ; this is especially useful if you use a gamepad that is slow to change left/right direction, but has low effect for players with a good keyboard (2)
Some guys around reported about some 'sliperiness' feelling / lack of control. Difficult to put a word on this, but, if most of the times it's ok, sometimes the autopos / auto-step back seems acting akwardly when i played some match-ups. It's like sometimes the game gets it wrong about the direction and just hesitates and instead of helping, just drags my char into the ball and mess ups my positionning. Last time i was like pretty well positionned to hit some FH short cross and it litterraly dragged my char to the ball, probably thinking i should have hit some backhand, resulting in some complete misshit. Not sure when it happens, maybe when turning around the bakhand quickly, but overall, i felt more constrained in my movement and positionning, and like 'praying' it wont happen the next shot again. I think this is something that will be difficult to be used to if you have to be sure to be really far from the ball for the game not getting it wrong on wich side you should hit, it's too much preventing quick positionning moves then. To be tested more still.
One detail though is that this awkward behaviour happened in a match up with a ping around 250, but pretty stable. But i didnt had this playing with the same person using 1.0e.
Besides this strange behaviour wich deosn't seem to occur to often, the slow-autopos feels more like a medium autopos for some reason, dunno why, its seems moving more the char, wich is maybe causing this slippery feeling ?
i would be glad to try a zero-autopos option, in the rallies, with just a medium autopos only active when in return serve stance, for some seconds after the serve, nothing better than full control if you ask me
Btw it's with buid 92 but i couldn't find a thread corresponding so i posted here.
