We're not all stupid, we can sometimes actually tell when a risk shot is being played
It's been a pretty thoroughly discussed topic in the past but just to summarize the rule, if we all agree someone is cheating and doesn't stop, they will be banned. Banned being from tournaments, they can still play duels and what not but the tournaments are really just for fun and when people take winning so seriously that risks become a problem then there's not much we can do about it.

Discuss please :tears: I don't want to be a dictator here.

It's sad another topic has to be created about this but I have to agree.

I don't want to wonder each match I play if someone is going to use a risk shot or not during a point, it's just not allowed, and there should be a consequence for using them. I don't want to play in a tour where people can't even follow a simple rule.
I agree that it is nearly impossible to tell if someone is using a riskshot during a normal rally. But when someone is hitting hard winners from difficult angles on the run or making unusual errors out of nowhere, than that's a different story.

I can't really say much about the drop shots, I haven't faced that many yet.
hold on... we ARE allowed to use L trigger shots in rallies? :speakles:

i wish i had known :bigcry:
Me too, I've said several times in topics that no risk shots were allowed, why didn't anyone speak up and say that the L trigger shots are allowed?

I thought it was NO trigger shots during rallies :confused:
So did I.

Why the hell would the other trigger shot be allowed? There are both risk shots :eek: :eek:
I say we ban all risk shots during a point, since I actually thought that was the rule in the first place.

I do agree though, using a risk shot would add realism to the game because you could make more errors, but that's just in theory. You can master the risk shot and never have it go out. Then there is no risk, that's just not how the real game works.
