Grrrr!! Jung Soo strategy needed
I'm playing the Pro Circuit on default settings, with Jeurgen and I'm up to the semi-final of the last round, so one more match after this annoying Jung Soo.
I've got the ace serve down, but he still manages to return it quite often.

I really need some tips for his service though, I've tried all sorts of spins etc but he always seems to pull something amazing out of his bag of tricks.

I'd rather not go back to the beginning and use another character as it does let me "rematch", although will that still unlock the "Competitor" achievement ?

Lonsta DaMonsta 11-01-2006 10:39 PM

My advice is to try and pull off the Ace serve as much as possible, and also to do button combinations, such as X + A and X + B (top left spin, top right spin), usually if you can rotate those, you'll eventually get a point. There's no point in starting all over though if you're that close to the achievement.

Webb 11-01-2006 10:45 PM

Well I'm on bloody Mark and have been for the last few months!

Semi Final of All Star on default! Argh! So close, but yet so far! lol

Lonsta DaMonsta 11-01-2006 10:51 PM

lol, well Mark is a power hitter, so instead of hitting fast balls back at him, hit some slower ones with some spin (such as the Y + X or the Y + B combos). If you just can't seem to get it, try the very boring strategy of constantly hitting him backspins (Y button), and eventually he might mess up... heh.

Webb 11-01-2006 10:54 PM

Just back spin with no direction?

I usually get bored and try and clip the net with backspin, but winning that many points like that is solid! lol

Lonsta DaMonsta 11-01-2006 10:59 PM

heh, yeah... it'd be worth a try. You can press down on your directional pad (or joystick, whichever you use) a very little bit, but be careful or you'll hit the net, and then get aggrivated, and then throw a controller and scream I HATE YOU MARK!!


Webb 11-01-2006 11:01 PM

Oh, my, how I've shouted that very loud in the past! lol

If it wasn't match 8 out of 10, I'd have given up a long time ago :p lol

Cheers man, I'll try that next time then :D

I did manage to beat him in the end and beat the final opponent but I didn't get the achievement. I'm 99% positive I had default settings on. Does selecting rematch (when I lost to Jung repeatedly) affect the achievement?

Webb 11-02-2006 10:11 PM

Nah, I had a problem character on Pro and eventually got past him and got the achievement.

Lonsta DaMonsta 11-02-2006 10:27 PM

Nope, doesn't affect the achievement.... maybe you had something goofy changed such as a camera option or something, which would then actually prevent the achievement from unlocking.

LeiChat 11-02-2006 10:36 PM

Thanks. I'll give it another try. I'm almost positive before I began I pressed the button to reset to defaults. Another thought... I did give up and return to it another day, not realising it saves your progress. As it allowed me to continue I did. Next time I'll try and do it in one session.

Lonsta DaMonsta 11-03-2006 03:09 AM

You shouldn't have to do it in one session...

just make sure you reset to defaults before you start, and accept/save those settings.

LeiChat 11-04-2006 12:01 PM

arggh, I can't stand that shot cam it really puts you off your rhythm. :(

LeiChat 11-12-2006 03:53 PM

I'm back!!
I'm now working through All Star tournament on default settings (aside form the shot cam, which I'm hoping won't count)
I'm through to the third stage, second round and it's Jung again.
This time I can not do an ace serve! I've tried various distances from the table and various speed and spin combinations but no matter what I do he jumps round the table at the last moment and fires a return back that I don't stand a chance of getting back for.
Also, what's his weekness when he's serving? Most of the others you can use yellow backspin drop shots against. I can't find anything that bothers Jung in the slightest.

Lonsta DaMonsta 11-12-2006 09:39 PM

Wait, you turned off the shot cam?? THEN YOU WON'T GET ANY ACHIEVEMENTS!!

As far as Jung Soo goes, I usually rotate button combinations, such as a top left spin and a top right spin (rotating each side of the table), eventually you should get a fast enough hit that he can't return.

Webb 11-12-2006 09:54 PM

Are you sure? Cause I swear I beat Pro with the shot cam off and got the achievements :confused:

Lonsta DaMonsta 11-12-2006 10:10 PM

I can't say 100% sure... but I'm pretty for sure.

Are you sure you got the "beat Pro circuit on default settings" achievement?? Because you probably got "Unlocked Soloman".... just an idea.

Webb 11-12-2006 10:12 PM

I got both at the same time if I remember rightly, need this confirming really simply because the current All Star tourney I'm on, match 9 of 10, I have no shot cam on. I hope this doesn't affect the achievements :(

Lonsta DaMonsta 11-12-2006 10:18 PM

Hopefully LeiChat can finish up his current tournament to let you know...

Webb 11-12-2006 10:22 PM

Yeah, fingers crossed. Go LeiChat :woop: My All Star tourney is riding on this ;)

LeiChat 11-13-2006 11:38 PM

I guess mine too. Doh. If I can just get past Jung...
If I don't get it I think I'll forget that achievement and work on the non default settings All Star with all players instead.
Jung Soo AND shot cam is just far from my idea of a fun challenge.

LeiChat 01-16-2007 11:09 PM

I gave up on default settings, thought I'd try and get the All Star with all characters instead, but even with a one game, 7 point, 5 serve points setup I still can't do it. I'm stuck at match 6 against Jeurgen this time. The ace serve is just not working and even if I get past him there's another 4 matches to play!!!
I'm amazed how anyone has pulled off those two achievements. Especially the default settings one.

Webb 01-16-2007 11:21 PM

I'm so close on the default, I'm against Jung Soo in the semis! Still can't do it, kinda gave up though TBH :(

Wiggum 01-19-2007 01:17 AM

Don't worry i'm on match 9 of 10 on pro and can't beat him either.

arun 05-16-2008 07:58 PM

I am stuck with Sung as well. He is damn good returning serving.

Damn Sung, why don't you die? :mad:

all star achievement, good bye

SenSporky 08-11-2008 02:58 AM

i need help beating jung soo on all star with haley if anyone can help

GTAmissions1 03-01-2009 03:48 AM

I hate All Star. I am currently using Solayman and I'm against Juergen. I hate this part, even though aces go through. I only beat the All Star with 4 characters. But I'll take the advice the number one 1000 legit in Table Tennis gives.

Also, I nearly broke the game.

Elekid 03-01-2009 06:59 AM

Usually I try to corner them using a right or left spin shot. Then when I've got them all the way over, I'll either spin it the other way at the opposite corner, or top spin it in the opposite corner. Usually works for me.

jwprice1974 04-02-2009 12:50 PM

Here's the strategy I used to unlock the all-star and savant achievements fairly quickly. I managed to pull off the ace serve against most players but it never seemed to work against Mark or Jung Soo and sometimes Juergen. So what I did was served straight at them using the Y button then when they returned it I pushed diagonally up and right and tapped Y. They never seemed to return my lob shots with a lot of power allowing me to get a bit of focus power. After a couple hit they would hit the ball to the left side of the table and I would return it using focus power (RB), hitting A & B and aiming directy for the right side of the table. They would normally pop the ball into the air allowing me an easy smash shot which I aim right until the controller barely started vibrating and hitting the A & B buttons again. Hope this helps.

GTAmissions1 04-08-2009 12:37 AM

I hope it works man.
Because I want to get all the achievements and throw it in the garbage.
