When I say It’s Redemption Time, I mean I’m done with my 3 week journey getting my ash kicked by stacked players in World Tour using my weak, but fun SIM player, at least for now.
My setup is Stick Serve Berserker / Focus Service or Crushing Passing Shot / Instant Rocket. Disgusting isn’t it, but like I said, it’s my time or my turn if you will. So far I’m 9-0 and 3 of them forfeit on me and called me a cheater. I don’t blame them. My replay was, I agree, but it’s only temporary, I promise. I also apologized for my cheeseball players. These setups are so over powered it really does feel like I’m cheating. Why Top Spin even gave us this option is beyond me. Even though it’s the cheapest way to get wins, when you get the win it feels pretty good. Just keep in mind, your reputation is at risk. Because most Top Spin players are long time players and really do take the game seriously.
My custom players consist of 80% SIM and 20% cheese, and only because so many others use stacked players that there is no other way to compete. I just don’t like getting easy wins, gets boring. I enjoy fighting for my wins and having a close match at a normal pace. It seems anything above 85 power is just overkill. That’s why I prefer to use my SIM setups. If by chance I encounter a power player who is as skilled as I am, I usually forfeit. Otherwise I just get toasted. If and when I play with power setups I don’t blame my opponent for forfeiting.
Can anyone relate?
