Tennis RPG is a new type of game where you slowly develop your player into a match winning machine. You will start a player from scratch, and if you're lucky and skilled enough you will soon be a Grand Slam winning billionaire.
When you join Tennis RPG, you automatically become a full time player. Each week, you automatically enter a tournament, and the results are automatically simulated. So you could play this game without doing anything
However, if you want to succeed, you will need to get involved. Your player has a total of six "stats" that you will want to upgrade:
- Serve (increases strength in service games)
- Return (increases strength in return games)
- Attack (increases overall strength, shortens rallies)
- Defense (increases overall strength, lengthens rallies)
- Stamina (determines how quickly your player tires)
- Status (indicates how much your player has achieved and can intimidate the opponent)
The start value of each stat is 100. You can earn stat points by doing well in tournaments, and also by getting involved in Tennis RPG quests and events, which range from guessing tournament winners on the real life WTA tour, to battling wicked monsters from the depths of hell.
You can't upgrade your Status yourself; you earn this when you reach certain levels of total prize money, or when you win important tournaments.
These are small tasks that will get you a reward, usually in the form of stat points. You can only do them once, but they remain valid indefinitely. So new players should immediately finish all available quests to become as strong as possible!
These are tasks that can be repeated weekly or monthly.
The tournament schedule is similar to the real life WTA Tour. You enter tournaments automatically, and you're ranked based on how you perform in them. You don't have to send in points or do anything to play them; your matches are simulated by a computer program, and your chances to win are based on your player's stat points, and equipment if you have acquired some.
An event occurs only once. New players can't participate in past events. Events can be additional tournaments with special conditions, the rising of a monster that needs to be defeated (on court), etc. You should always check the forum for new events, and participate!
Tennis RPG is a game that will be constantly in development. Because of the nature of the game, new things can be added all the time. I am also working on a website that will make it a lot easier to view draws, rankings and character profiles. The more people play, the more motivated I will be to bring you new features!
Even if you don't plan to actively play, I would love for you to sign up just so the draws can be a little more full. All you need to do is pick a female celebrity to represent you, distribute some stat points, and you're good to go! Head to the forum
