    Who actually watches the highlight videos by WTT nowadays?

    I used to be so up to date with all the ITTF matches, that I would be running out of ITTF highlight videos to watch when there aren't any competitions happening. But with the change to WTT, and the side view camera angle, I simply can't bring myself to enjoy watching them even though I know they are great matches.

    I know this probably won't change anything, but I am curious as to how many of you feel the same way, or perhaps I'm the minority and most people are coping fine and continues watching the WTT highlight videos.

    I wanted to create a poll, but I can't find the option to do so with this version of the website.

    So the question is:
    Who actually watches the highlight videos by WTT nowadays?

    The possible answers are:
    1. Yes, I do
    2. No, I don't
    3. Only in the late stages where they show more diagonal view instead of the horizontal view.
    4. (custom answer)

    Cheers.

    I do watch them and prefer the new camera angle to the old.

    Does the camera angle affect you?
    Or you don't mind what angle but just want to see the whole match?

    Fans: WTTC forever!
    WTT: Chief, the fans are not buying our "angle". What are we gonna do?
    Chief LGL: Not to worry. I've got your back.
    CTTA: No ML, no XX, no LSW for WTTC 2021.
    Fans: *Bleep* I'll stop following table tennis!
    WTTC: Throwing us under the bus, chief?
    Chief LGL: This is win-win. You'll have 2 brand-new World Champs and fans will not have to choose between WTTC and WTT.
    WTTC/WTT: Ah, genius!

    It's not the camera angle but the frame rate is really disturbing. It's very hard to follow what's going on with the ball when it's jumping like quantum particles.

    That is true too. It is a pity that they upload low frame rate highlight videos yet in some of the top 10 videos, they are so much better in video quality.
    If you have the choice, what camera angle would you prefer?

    A thing I'll remember forever is when they said that one of the reasons they'll change the size of the ball, was to provide a better viewing experience for us-the viewers
