Sure, it isn't easy to play with and / or against top spin players, but at realistic mode, we would have no defenders anymore. Just power baseliner and counters.
If realistic mode will come, I wish all players good luck in 2014.
Yeah, I have to agree with you Heinrich. Now, we don't have clever playing anymore, what to say.
I played this game for a 2 years and i my opinion is that fair style is the most realistic, but also I want to say that fair mode have a few bugs (my opinion) :
- Counters should have same stamina like other styles (this style is already overuse)
- Spin effect must be reduced on hard surfaces, it's a little bit overuse now
- Like spin, volleys should be reduced (depends of surface), on grass it must stay on current level, but on other surfaces must be harder to play especialy on clay. Why? Last year we have semi final on Roland Garros where winner rushes to the net 76 times in one set. I don't remember reallife clay match on this condition.
With this changes game will be the most realistic ever (all styles will be more balanced). This is just my opinion.
Realistic mode is not good balanced for all styles, so i think that you will have more problems during season to balance this. Maybe game will never be on good level like now.
If realistic mode will come, I also wish all players good luck.
