Everything about your online tennis matches !

nope, sorry it's not possible...

I think no one should care so much about the ELO, coz it's really not that accurate... It's good for give an idea of the approximate level, but not to brag "I have a bigger ELO than u !" ... ;)

Lately, I'm even thinking about lowering periodically the ELO (likely every month), mainly to thwart the fact there's an infinite source of new ELO points coming from players testing the demo ; normally an ELO system should be done within a close environment with a defined number of players playing each other.

And if people want to be ranked on a real accountable ranking system, then the online ladder is a lot better.

Personally...........this game used to be so much fun when I first started playing online. There was no ranking or ELO...........you just hooked up with someone and played. Now with this ELO debacle.......if you go up a break early in the match........the other person retires. I won quite a few matches not even knowing there was an ELO........and when I did finally pay attention to it........I was around 1800. I still could have cared less.........but I did notice people bowing out of matches early on me........or going into menus after every point when you get into a groove. Then too........Im sorry.......but if my phone rings here at home..........Im clicking off to answer it. I dont care about how highly ranked I am.......nor do I care who,s ELO is higher than mine. I purchased this game to have fun and thats all. So may I suggest that for the 2007 version........those who want to live out their "Im Roger Federer" fantasies.......have their own denotation thats states "Playing for ELO points" and let them have at it.

Hello,

yup, there are really some bad consequences from this ELO score... Sometimes, I feel I should remove it and just keep the Club/Junior/Pro/Master/Incredible designations.... :roll:

I'll see how it goes and try to make it more fun for everybody in future updates.

By the way, the latest update didn't improve the situation ?
