In-game online tournaments?

Postby Sukuth » 06 Oct 2011, 19:11

Hello.

Don't know if this has been discussed here already or not, if so, please excuse me, to be honest I didn't browse through the whole forum. I was just thinking about the idea of implementing on-line tournament system in some of the upcoming TE editions... in other words - to move the tournament system, which works here on the forum and is just played in "exhibition" matches in-game, into Tennis Elbow game. I mean, from my point of view, it would be very challenging to play online tournaments simultaneously with the real tennis tournaments, but I think it would be so much more comfortable if the system was implemented into the game itself (sign up for tournaments and play the matches within some in-game section of online tournaments). Do you developers consider this an option, or are you sure that you will never implement this feature into TE? I think that it would put the online gaming of TE into brand new level, and, frankly speaking, I as a great tennis fan have never played a better tennis simulation so I would really love to see the online aspect of the game growing. :) Thank you very much for any reply. :)

Hello, developers? I thought that when I bought the game, I became your customer, or something like it :P I don't want to be impatient or something, but I would really love to know your statement about this feature. Anything like "In years to come we'd like to do that" or "No, don't ever bug us with this, it is not our plan" would be enough ;)

Hello,

sorry I'm visiting family, so I'm away of my PC these days... ;)

About the tournament system, the Forum system has been implemented only on last June and it's still not finished (it still misses automatic rankings as main feature, and a lot of little things as extra features).

I won't move the whole system into the game, but I'm always thinking about integrating it a bit more into the game ; u'd link your game Key to your Forum account, and then the game would detect if you play against the correct opponent for your tournament, and auto-fill the score (but let you confirm it or not). But it's really not on my priority list so it might not come before long time (hear year or more, here ;) )...

Ok, thank you very much for the answer, sorry for me being impatient once again :) good to hear that some progress is planned :) I really like the online gaming of TE, been playing single for some time and just tried online recently and I'm really happy about the gaming level :) looking forward to any improvements concerning the tournaments system :)
