my opinions about 1.0b

Postby Cenc » 02 Mar 2008, 22:15

well actually i like this one much more than previous version and many things are much better so thx manutoo (i have tested the game yesterday)
few more suggestions:
1) tiebreaks are more unrealistic than before-usually no breaks until 65 and then in 90% of ocasions people lose serve points-far from real tennis... please correct it asap
2) why do players get nervous when serving to stay in the match?! i am a tennis player myself and know tennis psyhology quite well and only moment when player feels nervous is when playing against match point
3) just please add possibilty to play LONGER career if you want- for example if im good enough why shouldnt i play until 35?! (look at santoro). i think it would be better if u gave US chance to decide when we are going to end career even if we want at age of 50 although the longer we play the weaker (physically) our player will be

thx for thinking about these ideas :) and please respond asap

i forgot something:
4) stats is not realistic
especially the part where we have ACES and DF
number of aces is too little and also its weird that ivanisevic hits about 6 aces/match and many others hit 8-9
dont u think so?!

i think it's quite normal. i myself sometimes can't hold serve while trailing 4-5 in the final set. not everyone can hold their nerves in important games, no matter what you are serving or returning.

I have to agree with the guest, it would depend on the occasion, the opponent and the score. You're more likely to be nervous at 4-5 in the final set then at 0-6 0-5

1) I quickly looked and there are approximately 30% of Tie-breaks finishing with 4 points, 30% with 3 points, and the 40% other ones a bit of everything.
If I remember well, last time you complained about something similar it was coz you modded the game in the wrong way... :?

2) In real life, I saw a huge number of sets where both players were more or less equals till 4/5 or 5/6, and then the server did doing stupid faults & lost the set...

3) Longer career = bigger file size for everybody, so it's still "no"... But I may change this in the future...

4) Number of aces has been tuned a couple of weeks ago, let me know if it's better or not

Dear Manutoo here is what should be added to the game.

More things to do with money.

I would like to buy a house like you knopw a rags to riches story. Like at first I live in a little apartment then slowly work my way up to a gigantic mansion. But make sure I pay the rent!!!!

Another things is can we get records of how we did at certain tournaments. Like when on the planning screen I can click a button beside the tourney and it would come up in which years I've played there and my results and my record like 16-0.
