Same here. We should do a 'collective'.

I reckon from the launch we should set up some sort of MTF gaming crew and have tournaments on popular games so several genres are covered instead of just tennis.


Do you know how fast must an internet connection be to be able to play online in consoles?

Re: MTF Top Spin 4 Tournament - PS3 and Xbox

Am I the only one who thinks topspin games completely suck? It is soooo slow, the serves are slow, the shots are slow and the movement is ridiculously fast. This all amounts to creating a "tennis experience" that makes me wanna smash my controller into my PS3.. Add to this the ridiculous sounding grunts (is it so hard to use the actual player sounds?) and you have one stinker of a game.

That being said, feel free to upload the matches to youtube, I'll have a good laugh

Thanks. My net maxes at 5 mbps. Yes I live in the wilderness almost.

And in weekends, busiest times, it drops to around 3 mbps.

Glad to hear I will be able to play online.

Agree with Johnbert. Virtua tennis is awful compared with Top Spin, the mechanics and lack of variety on your shots. ^The slice in VT4 is useless.

Grand slam tennis 2 looks good but I've never played.

Also has anyone played in the International Top Spin Tour? http://www.intertopspintour.net/?p=home&pf=xbpc&gc=XBPC
The rules of the tournament haven't been made yet, but in principle I see nothing wrong with using custom characters as long as they're not power bots ie as long as they are normal players.

MTF games titles:

Suicide Tennis (5): Wimbledon 2014, World Tour Finals 2015, Madrid 2015, Kuala Lumpur 2014 and Metz 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 WTF, 1 Masters 1000, 2 ATP 250; 2 finals lost

Fill-in-the-Draw (3): US Open 2014, Rotterdam 2013 and Geneva 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 ATP 500 and 1 ATP 250

Tennis Tipping (3): Veneza and Todi 2014 (with vn01), Knoxville 2015 (with Redkop) - 3 challengers; 7 finals lost

Re: MTF Top Spin 4 Tournament - PS3 and Xbox

Not even sure if this is completely accurate but I mentioned before 2K Czech (the makers of Top Spin 4) are helping Rockstar on GTA V (both Take Two owned companies) and tennis is a confirmed minigame which you would think 2K Czech are working on. Anyway within the last few weeks some people have been saying they had recorded motion captures of Djokovic, Nadal and Federer for the game. Assuming it is true it can only mean 2K Czech are going to then use them afterwards for Top Spin 5 because there's no way they would spend so much on that only for a minigame in GTA.

Grand Slam Tennis 2 is truly awful, you're better off keeping away from it.

Count me in.
No facebook but I'm on twitter

Would love a similar street fighter 4 tourney. More than happy to take anyone on against my guile

God is Love. To know Love is to know God. So ask yourself if you hold any hate for another in your heart how can you have room for Love, room for God

Re: MTF Top Spin 4 Tournament - PS3 and Xbox

What do i receive for winning this so called event?

Juan Martin Del Potro


But he lost 23 times against you.
's right. We have to also throw into the mix. But I do not think it is currently the decisive factor. But he has achieved in my opinion too much. Maybe this is crucial if I move him even closer after major victories. But 14 or 17 Grand Slam titles is a significant difference. At the present time there is no question that he must be the greater player than me.

I tried it once with Top Spin 3 and got matched with someone in Europe (I'm in the US) and it was so laggy that we couldn't even complete the match. I haven't tried it since but I noticed they have Tennis Elbow tournaments now (PC game) so I might give it a try again. Tennis Elbow has really great sim mechanics despite the cheap graphics and presentation. The gameplay mechanics are a step up from the Top Spin series in terms of realism.
