Top Spin 4 – What a Shame..? It’s a shame after a few weeks of playing Top Spin 4 on World Tour with a SIM setup that I realize the only way to get some significant wins under my belt is to not play with a SIM setup.
Like I mentioned in my previous posts, the SIM setup I used for these few weeks I was only able to reach grade 14. That’s not too bad, but not too good either. Not when you compare yourself to the grades other players are getting. Keep in mind, they are using much stronger setups.
It gets frustrating trying to get wins off players who use these powerful setups like, stick server berserk / focus serve or 100 power. A strong baseline setup in this game is very hard if not impossible to beat. Does that mean you need to use it, absolutely not. Why, because it makes you look like every other insecure player in Top Spin 4 who is too chicken to play with a real SIM setup because they can’t take it when they lose. I say get over it.
My suggestion, if you enjoy the SIM slower style game play and you like to play World Tour, when you get connected to a top player who’s insecurity forces him to use 100 pwr, quit the match. That’s all, just quit! So what he gets the win and his grade goes up, what do you care. Otherwise you will just end up wasting your time again and get blown out by someone hitting the lines every time he serves and rallies because he or she has 80+ on forehand / backhand and 85+ on pwr.
It doesn’t matter how many times you lose as a SIM player, I love my SIM setups and will continue to use them because it gives me that realistic tennis feel that i’m looking for in this game (a realistic tennis game) I will beat who I can beat and not sweat it when I lose to a beefcake.
Remember, there is nothing we can do about it anyway. Half them players don’t even speak your language, so why bother fighting it. Besides, when you do get that win against a high ranked player who is using 100 power, it’s all worth it. 🙂
