    BTW, this will just be a low key, casual league were yoiu arrange to play anyone on your schedule whenever u like. There will be "play by" dates as a guideline, but it will be up to you guys. I am thinking maybe 8 matches over 2 months?

    Oh, by the way, my GT: x 7he7rooper

    It's seeming more likely that I'll get TS4, and I'm sure my opponents will enjoy it because I'm only really good at Virtua Tennis :p

    Once we get everyone in, I will make up a schedule and you will contact your opponent to arrange when to play. I am thinking one or 2 matches per week and lasting for 2 months. It will be very casual and low key. But I only want guys who plan on playing out all the matches. I don't want to see a lot of forfeits.

    OP think you should get a list of users willing to participate on first post. Get an idea of how many people are already committed

    Please let me know if I missed anyone. We can play some practice games this week after the game comes out and then start the real season the following week.

    So has anyone played any online games yet and what were they like?
    I have only played offline so far, but haven't had much time yet to dive deep into the game. I would like all of us to use created characters that we model after our "real world tennis self's". I think that would be cool. But we need to figure out a limit for character points so that we are all on equal terms here. Anyone have any suggestions?

    I did. It plays well online.

    We do need guidelines. For all 4 styles. Otherwise we will be playing level 20 Offensive Baseliners all the time :)

    I propose the following, a maximum of Level 11 and a minimum of 3 in all categories.

    Question.....how do you keep from going over a maximum level? Is it in your control?

    Yes. There are 20 total levels to allocate to 3 categories: Offensive Baseliner, Defensive Baseliner or Serve and Volley.

    Each level adds stats across the border to your character, making that particular style stand out more.

    OK, so if we use your rule I could do any combo of 3-3-5
    or 3-4-4? I like that idea.

    So everyone who wants to play in this leage, start getting your created players together and max them out at 11 points, with a minimum of 3 in each.

    We can start doing some practice matches pretty soon.

    Max of 11? I don't think there should be a max...as long as everyone is balanced it shouldn't matter what the level is.

    No, no. Once again, let me explain:

    Total levels to allocate - 20

    Maximum in one category - 11

    Minimum in one category - 3


    Example or a valid player:
    John Doe
    S&V - 3
    Offensive Baseline - 6
    Defensive Baseline - 11
    --------------------------
    Total 20


    Example or a valid player:
    John Smith
    S&V - 10
    Offensive Baseline - 5
    Defensive Baseline - 5
    --------------------------
    Total 20

    It's better than TS3, not arcady and goes for realistic shots. If you like real tennis, you will like this game. Not perfect, but definitely the best TS to date IMO.

    Dont u think 3 to 11 is a pretty big range? Maybe it should be more like 5 to 9? I think if we leave it 3 to 11, everyone will set it up 4-11-5.

    I like the idea of Max of 11 and Min of 3. Would make everyone's player more unique if they made it the way they wanted to

    Also, can you give your character 20 points immediately and go play? or are the points "earned"?

    This game is amazing.
    I played my first final tournament in World Tour Today and lost
    a heartbreaker:
    4-3 0-3 7-10 But I will return!
    I'm level 14 now and it was against a 20, so I felt good pushing him to the limit. Would love to play/practice with anyone on here

    Yes. We need some time for everyone to get the game and create their characters and get their point up. If we are going to make the points limit 20. It will take more time for everyone to get there. Does everyone want it at 20?

    I might jump in if it's 20 since my guy is a 19 already. It only makes sense to be 20 because you still have coaches that can change your ratings dramatically also. My guy is balanced fairly well..9 and 9 and 3 on S&V.
