I must admit I've gotten used to the side angle. It still sucks when they place the camera too high, but the Singapore example is actually rather good.
guys, I found this petition on youtube from a famous table tennis channel.
Please if you really want to change the camera angle you should sign this petition.
Thanks for your attention!
Thanks very much for posting the petition link TTLOVE
Everyone, momentum is building slowly but surely, please take a minute of your time to sign the petition if you wish for things to change !
Does anyone here still believe that ITTF cares about what we think, like or dislike?
Perhaps they don't even know that fans are unhappy.
Perhaps they know but don't care.
It seems like it's a question of priorities, and fans are not their priority at the moment, clearly.
The funny thing is the WTT Feeder series that just finished a few days ago actually has a good angle.
Yep, that's exactly right. The feeder series has better angles than the top class series..
And did you notice how the top series is made to look like a MMA show?
This might have been my first ever match of Ma Long that I didn't finish watching and stopped watching somewhere half-way through. Not because Felix Lebrun wasn't good enough or interesting enough to face Ma Long, but because of that damn angle.
I found myself just staring right at the center of the net, the entire time, I guess I'm a bit tired to keep chasing the ball left and right. But even if I wasn't feeling tired to keep looking left and right, there's nothing really to see there, when looking at either Ma Long or Felix Lebrun, I'm not able to feel their energy generating from their movements the same way I would feel if the camera view was behind them.
If I could I would probably post hundreds of puke emojis to describe the feeling of watching TT in this disgusting angle but I will only post a few -> 🤮🤮🤮
They're really ruining the sport with this angle.
I'm not a massive fan of the side angle but is it really the end of the world? The side angle does also show details that the old view didn't. I personally prefer the corner angle which is being used by wtt more now, but I really think you are being dramatic if you can't watch a match because of the angle. Do you actually enjoy the sport or do you only watch for aesthetics? So while I agree that it isn't the best angle I don't agree that it is 'disgusting' or bad enough to put someone who loves the sport off it.
