    Would you guys rather play with the Tennis Pros from the game, or would you prefer to play with your own custom made guys? I personally have no preference, though I can see how an inbalance/advantage could be created if we decide to go with custom guys. A custom guy's skill is directly related to his development, which is a direct result of time invested. Not everyone has time to do that, using Pros would negate that.

    Please let me know what you think.

    custom, make it more personal

    This is a small league, so it would be a real good way to start off the league to build an identity for everyone

    I too like the individuality/identity aspect of it, despite the fact I pretty much need to create a guy still. I voted for custom guys.

    Ok, I created a custom guy last night. I was very original and went with a bald guy named Pete.:roll:

    He's somewhere around level 3-4, currently working on the advanced drills at the Tennis Academy. I've played some tournaments (singles and doubles), and am currently ranked 207th, though I seem to have hit a ceiling there as additional wins have not resulted in a better rank. Going to work on some more drills later tonight and see if I can't figure out how to break through that ceiling.

    As far as skills, most everything is in the 15-19 range, though I need to work on volleys and my backhand a bit to get them up to speed. I've earned an upgrade or two in the racket department, so I'm actually hitting stuff with some speed now.

    All in all I played for a few hours and had a great time developing my guy. I'll leave this poll open a few more days before deciding which way to go.
