  1. Someone put up a vid of my OLD Korean TT Club - new location

    Looking good, already wearing the brand new Xiom shirts.
  2. Sanwei Fextra & Chinese Rubbers on AliExpress

    Playa PingPong Store is reliable. I buy rubbers and glue there. They have stock in Europe and so shipping is usually less than 2 weeks to me (Netherlands). They are also easy with restitution. They once sent me 3 wrong hardness rubbers, and when I filed a complaint I got my money back so I got...
  3. Help!!! I'm being bullied!!!

    By your description I am assuming you play Barbarian. If you Rage you gain resistance to bludgeoning damage, and of course you can pummel the ball through your opponent with additional damage. Since you said you got a new feat, I am going to assume you have your subclass feature already, dont...
  4. Why do people say LP's should be banned?

    I wasn't trying to make a point for or against pips. I just wanted to clear up a potential misunderstanding. To answer your question, personally that sounds like fun.
  5. Why do people say LP's should be banned?

    The text in that animation litterally says that the stroke reduces the amouny of spin on the ball. So while your topspin gets returned as backspin by the LP, it is less spin than what you gave it. Of course if you gave it topspin from hell, it'll still be a lot of backspin you get back. The...
  6. Why do people say LP's should be banned?

    Just stop with the gay joke already. 10% of the world is gay, and so is the TT community. Be more respectful.
  7. WTT problems from players

    I'm so glad everyone sticking up for poor old ITTF. Need to show documents that you're pregnant or else get fined? Of course, because you are their employee and it's in the contract. Need to drop your league games to travel around the world? Of course, you can also choose to not do...
  8. fixing the bad habit of straightening the upper body during looping

    While implementing the techniques mentioned here you will probably still stand up a great deal more than you think you do, because your feeling for height isn't good. For immediate feedback have someone stand next to you and hold their hand (or broomstick or whatever..) above your head in a way...
  9. What table tennis players are mentally strong and what table tennis players are very weak mentally

    Genuine question: what is in your opinion mentally strong? If it's for school it's probably good to define what is and isn't mentally strong. In this thread I see a number of ideas you can use: Emotion during games: 1. Keeping emotions under control, and 2. Not showing any emotion at all. (I...
  10. Why do people say LP's should be banned?

    Oh abstract human physchology, I'm in. Imo this (quote) is a too narrow iew. "You only get..." To get definitions out of the way: moral conflict comes before the decision/choice/moment of truth, not afterwards. Afterwards there's pride or regret and such. So in extention, everyone...
  11. Why do people say LP's should be banned?

    Yeah but sponsored athletes always get the best gear before everyone else, to build the hype and boost sales etc. In football sponsored players for example got shoes with build in spring soles (Adidas Predator) to shoot much harder. And when the shoes finally end up in the store, it's not the...
  12. Why do people say LP's should be banned?

    Definitely. Maybe much moreso than boosting. If I understand correctly, boosting is a soluable process that turns solid sponge into liquid and adding air pockets. As the oil very slowly evaporates, the dissolved sponge particles become solids again, squeezed in the shrinking sponge. That's less...
  13. Why do people say LP's should be banned?

    This seems a bit harsh. It's not Vipers fault that the rule exists in its current form. I like Vipers adherence to clean logic, I was just late to like his posts ;) This discussion is about many things at once: - Is boosting allowed? - Is rubber cleaning allowed? - Is the rule clear? - Is the...
  14. Why do people say LP's should be banned?

    Unless you partake in corporate espionage, you can't prove you 'restored' it to factory spec or made something new altogether. So you'd need to get LARC approval for this new invention. And yes, also every time you sweat on it. :)

    Wonderful solution :love:
  16. WTT problems from players

    Any athlete who takes his sport seriously, would love to show up a few days early, to get acclimated to the timezone, temperature and rest from the trip. The TT players we're talking about have dedicated their childhood and adulthood to this sport, so I'm going to assume that they take their...
  17. WTT problems from players

    I don't know about this, and how long ago you are talking, but that's good. Sporters are workers and have rights. It likely involved the introduction of payment, which was recently increased...
  18. WTT problems from players

    Exactly, 10-20 matches that only take one day, vs. 10-20 tournaments that last 3 to 7 days each. Not to forget: none of it is mandatory. None of it forces pregnant and sick players to repetively supply medical files or else get fined. In fact, the only non-sick exemption made is for 'maternity...
  19. WTT problems from players

    Bad comparison, but it proves the point exactly. FIFA World Cup is once every 4 years. Continental Cups (UEFA European Championships for example) as well, so that is one international championship every 2 years. The calendars are the same for every player in the World, so planning is easy...
