    Default Badminton Secret Help

    Somebody that trains me sometimes train other people and told them something and they got much better I dunno what but he wont tell me till later

    Well what you can do that is sort of cheating put your hand as a out signal and when it is really low hit it so they would think u wouldn't hit it and if they say u cheated just say u didnt know

    Not a good secret though

    I think it would be more worthwhile to training winning on merit and effort, rather than resort to those kinds of antics, but that's just my opinion.

    i failed to comprehend the long and punctuation-less sentence.

    the gist i got from it is that the method is cheating or borderline so. i strongly think we should encourage honesty and discourage cheating in badminton.

    Ya i didn't quite understand what you were specifically talking about either. Cheating in general is not how winners win. Especially when you get to higher levels and cheating is essentially impossible.

    i think this method would force a fault to be called... i remember a rule where it states that a player may not say or make any weird gestures that may interfere with the match or something... so i dunno.. this one is in the air i guess. and yes, its a cheap way to get a point.

    Nobody... nobody likes playing with cheaters. If you're a newbie, better get this in your head soon.

    That's a move my friend used to make in high-school. Sometimes, he would let the bird drop at the back of the court when playing XD, as if the bird was landing out. Then, he'd go for a very low drop shot, which could work if his opponents stood back waiting for the bird to drop.

    Is it cheating or cheap? I wouldn't say so. After all, it could be an honest mistake.
    Is it effective? Not really, and against stronger players your partner will be very pissed off at getting smashed in the face.

    I don't understand the description... but I also agree with woodchuck, not worth wasting the time, just do the proper training...

    Are you going to trick your way through matches or play badminton?

    I mean, to me, the outcome of a match isn't important. As long as it's a good match.

    Any kind of trickery unless it's a trick shot just ruins the game for everyone.
