Coaching Spotlight: @vreleventabletennis on Youtube

My Brazilian friend, real life table tennis coach Wlad is making some amazing FREE training tutorials on Youtube.

In the videos, he covers all the basic techniques, teaches you how to handle the spin or the speedy serves, and even goes beyond that to teach you different ways of handling certain spins in the advanced training programs. All videos come with downloadable ball machine drills!

I think it’s wonderful that ElevenVR is bringing table tennis to a lot of people that have never or rarely played the sport in real life, but I also think it’s extremely important for such players to at least try to learn the proper TT techniques: Good TT techniques are more efficient, lead to less injury. Together with good adapters like SolidSlime, they are the keys to easier real life<->VR skill transfer.

So no matter what your level is at, please check out his Youtube channel. It can be the key to the next jump in your Elo rating.

Tip to strengthen haptics in Eleven Table Tennis

This is a cool trick that not everyone knows, but it’s an extremely important one, especially for adapter/paddle users.

To boost the haptics, open Menu->Settings, click the “carrot” icon on the top right to open the advanced menu, open “controller settings” and increase both haptics sliders to the right most position. The first one increases the rumbling strength, and the second one increases the rumbling time. Both contributes to the feeling.

While you are in there I’d suggest to enable “catch haptic feedback” too. That one makes the non-paddle controller to rumble when a ball is spawned.
