how is it that a rock can curl 4 feet with big weight,then going on another line it falls off,such inconsistency is frustrating,maybe you guys should do some consultation with real curlers,so funny on how players from countries that dont even have curling clubs can do so well,i know its only a game but hard to enjoy it when there is such a difference from 1 rock to another,never mind the change of ice conditions from end to end

I agree with danddo, sometimes it curls a lot with big weight , it never happens in real life. More adjustment is needed

It's not "curling" when you throw big weight shots. The computer is messing with your aim. It either kicks the broom out or inside a few movements. So it's just ruining the shot. The rock goes straight but not on the path you chose.

In curling when you throw the rock outside/ inside with your arm, which seems to be what's being simulated, the rock just keeps going in that direction. So it isn't curling like a normal rock thrown properly, it's sliding sideways down the ice.

You're wrong. In real curling draws are much harder than takeouts, they curl more, slide a lot longer and are more subject to ice conditions because they are sliding twice as long etc. So in this game, it's flipped.

We aren't talking about giving too much ice by judgement or anything like that. We are talking about throwing the rock outside of the broom or inside of it with a lot of weight. If you can't distinguish between the two then I'm not surprised.
