Looking good from where I'm standing.

Virtua Tennis and Mario Tennis are the only two decent tennis games I've played, so hopefully this one will fare well. I'm also hoping for a fluid and responsive control system - such was the downfall of many a tennis game.

--Same here! But from what I have heard and what I have seen, this may well be a Virtua Tennis beater! If it is, then its probably going to be one of my fav games ever, considering Virtua Tennis 2 is my fav sports title of all time.

I usually just block them, once on Mech Assault this kid kept whining, so feeling vindictive I shouted "Right **** you you little **** , I'm gonna blast the **** out of you every moment you're here" and then, in my maxed out Mad Cat, versus his Puma, proceeded to hunt him down for the entire remaining 10 minutes. He died a lot, and everyone else playing stopped firing at me and him so I could hunt him down :D He pulled after 5 minutes of death dealing :P

But ripping morons is fun! :)

Don't insult them just play along and gradually make more and more daft claims about your 'british behaviour'.

See how long it takes for them to twig. ;)

I never get wound up. It takes more than a pasty faced 12 year old sitting in his mothers basement, to get me wound up.

I tend to just block them. Believe me, I've tried insulting these fools back and telling them to grow up and stop acting like such a cockface, but only on the rare occassion does it make any difference. Most of them you could say anything to and it would go in one ear and out the other.

They won't know what hit them when I get live.

I agree with you about the Brits, 99% of the Brits I've spoken too online have been friendly.

There are quite a few safe American's online, it's just you need to sort through the crap to get to the good one's. If I hear another Yank tell me to "f**k off and eat tea and crumpets" then I might have to strangle someone.

The amount of morons online that use racial stereotypes is quite astonishing.

Aye to that, last night the host was dropped five times when the losing team had the server owner on their side and they were all Americans. Wouldn't be so bad if some of them were any good, I'm not brilliant at the game, but I can recognise decent players and all the really good ones I've been in games with have been Brits, and they're not morons like their US counterparts. I'm ginding generally that the Brits, whilst swearing more, are much friendlier than the Americans, heck even the French/Germans are friendlier.
