# LaTeX Beamer - \beamer@centeringfalse does nothing inside \setbeamertemplate

I am trying to make a custom beamer title page which fills from the top down. I can use \beamer@centeringfalse to change this but this is a global setting for the whole document. When I put the command inside the \setbeamertemplate{titlepage}, the title page fills from the center.

Is there a way to fix this?

Code:

\setbeamertemplate{title page}%
{%
\begin{tabular}{l|c|r}%
\begin{beamercolorbox}[wd=0.3\textwidth]{normal text}%
\centering%
\usebeamerfont{author}\insertauthor%
\end{beamercolorbox}&%
\begin{beamercolorbox}[wd=0.3\textwidth]{normal text}%
\centering%
\usebeamerfont{institute}\insertinstitute%
\end{beamercolorbox}&%
\begin{beamercolorbox}[wd=0.3\textwidth]{normal text}%
\centering%
\usebeamerfont{date}\insertdate%
\end{beamercolorbox}%
\end{tabular}
\begin{beamercolorbox}[wd=\textwidth]{normal text}%
\centering%
\usebeamerfont{title}\inserttitle\par%
\end{beamercolorbox}%
\ifx\insertsubtitle\@empty\else%
\begin{beamercolorbox}[wd=\textwidth]{accent text}%
\centering%
\begin{tikzpicture}%
\node[draw, ellipse, minimum width=1cm, minimum height=1cm, line width=2pt, inner sep=2pt] at (2,0) {%
\begin{minipage}{0.25\textwidth}%
\centering%
\usebeamerfont{subtitle}\color{WhiteSmoke}\insertsubtitle\par%
\end{minipage}};%
\end{tikzpicture}%
\end{beamercolorbox}%
\fi%
}
