>> I feel it gets worse
considering the list you did, I cannot find anything that got worse in these points since the game release... Maybe you're growing more exigent with the time passing...
1 & 2- I just lowered self esteem loss against better ranking opponents, and totally removed it against very better ranked opponents
3 & 4 - There's already a topic around about injury and the limits to its current gameplay mechanisms
5- you could see that as meditation, introspection, spending time thinking & feeling about your past matches ; the idea is to spend your XP points earned in matches, it's not 100% realistic but it's a nice gameplay mechanism
6- I just lowered topspin training speed by a bit more than 50% ; it's still quite unrealistic, but it should give a big enough handicap to players wanting to change their topspin all the time
7- French Open 1996 : Pioline beats Berasategui, a clay specialist, and falls to Stich, a fast surface player => http://www.atpworldtour.com/Share/Event ... 520&y=1996
... Really !
8- Just found out Tie Breaks had a major flaw ; I tuned a bit, and it should now have more mini-breaks during TB
9- not sure on this, you should send me your saved games if you want me to check more in details
10- Gambill game is bad for your player
11- Partying too much ? Or maybe already a bit too old...
All changes listed above will be in the next update...
