This thread was in deep sleep until someone wanted to check out the ranking site to presumably rank himself/herself? So somebody do give a hoot.

It's not really important but it's interesting.

Not that I give a hoot really, it's just that if I play slow w ppl, they say I don't play serious and pang chui. If I play serious, they can't take serve. How la, like that?

Can you not play seriously without your super awesome serve? You do have other not so wicked serves don't you? May be you should just play seriously & adjust your play level to suit your opponents' standard. Of course if your opponents are of higher standard than you, you've got to play to the best of your ability.

There's nothing wrong with ranking ourselves. We should care & be interested. If you use the self-ranking to rank yourself you're actually trying to determine or rate your skill level. Skill level is important to some players. There are some higher level players who refuse to play with players of lower level than them & there are also low level players who refuse to play in tt sessions filled with good players because they think their skill level isn't up to it.

I'm sure I've read somewhere in this forum or in the previous older forums where some forumers organised some tt sessions & they mentioned that the session was for players of certain skill level. For me I can accept this as I know what to expect if I join the sesion. May be some may treat this as discrimination towards certain players.

So your rank or skill level can actually determine who you play or practise with apart from your own decision (whether to play with certain players or not).

I can play seriously without serving my best, but there's another problem. They think that I'm mocking them. Screw o empty ball I deliver, as long as over their baseline, they'd top spin. Most of the time, ball flies long. So, generally they'd prefer I serve my best bcos if simply serve and they swing out, ain't that more teruk? Is it true that coach nowadays are teaching students to whack as long as long serve? Better die attacking than die being attacked? Unbelievable!

Really? Wat's so power w t64 anyway? I kinda regret w my expensive custom made bat. I tried playing w friendship 2040, premade, think it's got Ritc rubbers, can loop, can chop, good control w good feel, and u know Wat's best? Rm40 nia. F!

actually u think too much and feel too much about opponent feeling.
u should play according to your mood.
u should play according to your objective.
u should play according to your standard.

playing with 0ff-set standard only for fun and that doesnt make much tt process.

If your opponents think you're mocking them than that's their perception. Their problem. We have the right to use whichever serves we want to use.

Actually the best is to play your best. I personally feel I'd rather get thrashed from my opponents playing their best. At least I know where I stand & hopefully learn something out of it.

The RITC Friendship 729 2040 is a very good premade bat. I got the black 729 Tackspeed 2000 rubber on the forehand (very tacky & spinny) & a red 755 on the backhand. My first long pips bat on my journey to the darkside! I strongly believe I could still perform well with it now.

I spoke with Daniel (he was on the same course as you last week) at 5T session this morning about Richard McAfee. I told him that Richard was a very good long pips player & a long pips master in the US. Had I taken the course I would have learnt something from him!

O incidentally , i think many came to the Course lookin fwd2 learn skill and tactical training lessons from Richard McAfee ,but not to be as he was here to teach the ITTF format of coaching principles, systems in conducting of coaching for Beginners under the ITTF manuals and in the Course Conductor lessons, on how to teach Coaches to conduct lessons/courses based on ITTF training formats . So it was quite a long 30 hrs + 15 hrs over 2 weeks and 1 weekend for the complete course .....well learnt somethings tho it was somewhat close to the NCAP lessons i hv taken previously , but i still sweat when it came thru presentations and demo assessments .... , atlas yesterday, i am glad it was over.

Skills and Tactics lessons were only for Level-2 onwards .
