I have never personally have never used special chalk. I would not use it online either.
I've been playing through career mode and am now stuck on Professional league. Some of the matches without lines are really challenging and I usually run out of credits and have to do some trick shots or something to get up to enough to attempt it again.
Same here. Boring to make ten times in a row the 580.000 HKC trickshot (when you success, you can't redo the trickshot directly, you have to go to the menu and load it again each time...)
I should consider buying chalk to help get through career mode. Does this stuff really help? Does it work on the matches without lines?
I don't know how special chalks work exactly, but I guess it adjusts automatically the perfect "insane" shot for you. You just have to push the button.
It works on the matches without lines. Before the patch that allowed to adjust the use or not of special chalks in online match, I've encountered some players using special chalk (the green one) in no-line online match. I think it's the same thing for career no-line match.
Buy stuff to clear a game, I don't accept this. Especially when it's near impossible to clear the game without this stuff.
On the other side, I was an early buyer of the Snooker pack. 25 free chalks uses should be in it, but there has been a bug, and, like a lot of others early buyers, I've never got these free chalks (I counted on it to clear the carreer mode).
And Voofoo has never done something to compensate us.
