Patch Notes 1.13



Features
  • Added new swing animations:
    - Powerful strikes that allow you to punish opponents if they throw defensive lobs at you (often nicknamed “penalty” strikes).
    - Quick counters to add hard-hitting options when receiving a fast ball.
  • Hundreds of animations have been adjusted to feel more dynamic. The inertia of many animations has been reduced to allow quick come backs in the rally.
  • Added a new “3D View” to official players’ profiles that allows you to have a close look at their 3D models, outfits and animations.
  • Players will automatically let the ball go out instead of volleying it when they are close enough to the bounce.
  • New texture added for the clay courts’ grounds.
  • Added clay FX on slides and cutscenes on clay courts.
  • New cutscene animations at the start of points, some dedicated to clay courts.
  • Improved graphics (lighting and shading has been reworked for all venues).

Balancing (gameplay)
  • Greatly increased the overall pace of the game. All shots have been reviewed and tweaked to provide higher ball speeds, and speeds that are better suited to stroke motion.
  • Serves are more powerful and will pass the net at high speeds more often.
  • Smashes & volleys are much more agile and easy to use, and smashes are much more powerful.
  • Increased the sprint speed in all directions.
  • Reworked the lateral slice: it will now be applied to inside-out sliced forehand shots.
  • Reworked Madison Keys stats and skills to make her more of a hard-hitting baseline attacker.

Balancing (career mode)
  • ATP/WTA players ranking and performance has been tuned to match their current real world ranking in the Career Mode.
  • Tuned the ranking points earned each tournament to better reflect the real rewards and give more points for the bigger ones.
  • Opened 3-stars tournaments to players up to rank 20, making them more challenging.
  • Reduced the amount of Rest given by events, to balance the fact that you can choose 2 events per month.
  • Better seeding for the top players in big tournaments. Up to 16 players will benefit from top-seed positions.

AI improvements
  • New serve strategies for AI.
  • Tweaked AI’s response to serves, effectively enabling the player to serve Aces, especially on easy difficulties.
  • Improved AI positioning.
  • Tweaked the AI’s use of lobs (depending on difficulty).
  • Improved the AI’s behavior when a ball seems out of reach.
  • The AI will react more aggressively when taken out of position or running to a dropshot.
  • The longer the rally lasts, the more aggressive the AI will become.
  • The AI will more consistently break the diagonal rally, especially with harder difficulties.

SFX
  • Reworked most stroke and rebound SFX to make them sound more powerful.
  • Fixed a bug with backhand hit SFX, making them sound like they were played twice.
  • Reworked the crowd ambience and reactions.
  • Added new SFX to cutscenes, serve rituals, the training ball machine, and more.
  • Reworked groans types available (4 male / 4 female).
  • Improved the variety of audio commentaries.

Bug fixes
  • Fixed sidestep teleportation and sudden opponent sprints during online matches.
  • Fixed a bug where the player would be rotating during a strike, when they’re not supposed to.
  • Fixed a bug where the point could end as soon as a let occurs, instead of giving the players the opportunity to catch the ball.
  • Fixed the end of match cameras for left-handed players.
  • Reworked the transition between the rally and the end of point.
  • Fixed a bug that was penalizing accuracy in training mode, making all trainings harder to complete than they should be.
  • Fixed a bug that was generating unforced errors on charged slices.
  • Fixed a bug where two-handed topspin volleys could be used by one-handed backhand players.
  • Fixed a graphical glitch with Agassi’s 2018 outfit.
  • Fixed a minor bug on the display of community objective thresholds.
  • Fixed the shadows in the Mexico venue.
  • Fixed a texture on the Paris Major’s ads.
  • Fixed some small inaccuracies with London’s court lines.
  • Fixed the issue with reversed Yonex bags on the court.
