View Full Version : Skill Level for Online Matches

Is everyone evenly ranked with skill attributes or does it vary depending how much tranining you've done within the offline mode.
e.g. If I've completed all the training and games and have the top goundstrokes, footwork, and serve/volley skills will that improvement carry over in my online matches. Thus a rocket server will have a faster serve than a rookie. Or a powerful strokes person will have stronger strokes than a fast runner and vice versa.
Thx in advance.

I would like to know answer to this as well (Ruby?) when I play online in world tour you can tell from some players by their hair, clothes etc and available playing style that they are further through the offline game than you. would be curious to know if that carries into online game,as clearly if that is the case you are better off ploughing through offline game before you go online.

I'm ranked quite high, I keep getting rookies. No idea why. My skill level is All round +, some of the rookies are quite decent though.

i think it does as i have now aqquired quite a food racquet with alot of power through playing offline.
My serves as a rookie was 205 but now i have this racquet its hitting 212 ?
So yeah i think get your player stlye as high as possible then take your game online.
Just a tip , playing pratice matches increases your groundstrokes, footwork, and serve all together rather than 1 at a time in the acadamy or playing the games, so it goes up alot quicker

I think it all depends on the racket. If you have a rubbish racket but are a good player you will lose when facing a player with the best racket. You need one that has a lot of power with angle and you'll win. I played a rookie and he had the best racket and he was really good, don't really think the playstyles make much difference.

So what's the consensus on this? If you develop your player skillset during the offline mode it does carry over in the online matches? Or it just depends on your racket...or both? Or skill level is even during online play?

Yeah it does carry over into online play, the only match I played the guy saw my clothing, racket and skill set and quit in 12 seconds. I got one ace and then he quit.

Seems to be case that online is affected by how good your players is, im staying offline until Ive got a better racket etc. The best example I can think is if you play someone who is a rookie and looks from their appearance as if they have just started out in the game - when they hit the ball back to you it is slower and seems to bounce up in front of you enabling you to hit back with full power.

racquet is the difference. I just upgraded to a 5 power, 3 accuracy/angle and I'm beating folks and or competitive online.
Is there such a racquet that has full power/angle/accuracy? Do you get that if u are in the professional circuit? I'm like ranked 44 amatuer offline circuit.
