Here’s the thing about playing World Tour in Top Spin 4. Unless you are one of the best players in the world, there is no way to really compete, unless of course you play with a stacked player. This is because no one wants to lose, end of story. When you do lose you have to deal with the winner talking smack that he beat your ass, lol. It’s usually some 13 year old from another country. It happens to me now and then. I’ll play a someone who is using Stick Serve Berzerk / Focus Service and I’ll play with my weak but very fast Diesel Return / Low Volley Specialist with 65 fh / bh and 60 power. While it will be a close game, my low power and fh/bh is usually no match for Stick Serve Berzerk / Focus Service. I will end up losing a close match and my opponent will talk smack at the end.
What’s even more frustrating is when you play someone who you know is very good who may happen to play in ITST, yet they are still using Stick Serve Berzerk / Focus Service or similar. I don’t get that. Then again, maybe they are thinking, since all the noobs are doing it I’ll do it too. The way I prefer to think is to set a trend of World Tour SIM players and forget the stacked power players.
My point is, personally I hate playing with these ridiculous stacked players or against them. I hate the movement and they are completely unrealistic to the game of tennis and I have no choice but to get my ass beat 6 out of 10 times I play these guys. It’s when I play with a stacked setup that I am able to hold my own and usually win… for me, this is boring and not what I call real tennis, yeah, winning is awesome, but at the end of the day, it’s a cheap win.
