I just tried with the new system just now. Less than 10 minutes finish one set!. And counting a bit confused. just feel like weird.

I like the old 15x3 system better but I think for marketing and advertising purposes, the new system will work better.
Time will tell.

I voted for the new system, my two main reasons being:
(i) I think the scores from matches will more accurately reflect the difference between players.
(ii) It suits my style of play better!

IMHO. 15 point system was perfectly fine.
I tried out the 21 point system a few times and it was irritating how the game is over in about 30 mins.
This is because it takes me a few good rallys before I can get my engine going.
Now due of the rally point, by the time I'm pumped for the game the first set is nearly over.

- The game is too fast and relies mainly on accuracy and mistakes of players (maybe this is the intention but takes away the tactical & strategy part of the game)
- Players tend to be too cautious and play a save game
Maybe its my first time using this point system and may change my opinion after a few more tries.

Actually.. till now.. i still really get it how the proposed new system works.. but as humans.. we tend to stick in our own comfort zone.. including me.. so i vote for the old system as I'm pretty used to it..

Actually and interestingly the IBF is experimenting with another scoring system- 11x5[5 games and each game being 11 pts ,rally point scoring].i found this info on the official Badminton Association of India website-
So i think this poll can have 3 options instead of 2[the 3rd being 11x5].Details of the scoring of both types 21x3 and 11x5 [with examples from the WC]can be found on this exact homepage-
I would like to see a new scoring in Badminton,preferably 11x5.here are my reasons-
1.let's stop being stereotypical.the present scoring is not exactly a smash hit so there should be room for something different.
2.in the present scoring,the score can tend to stagnate while rally point scoring ensures that the score is always ticking so audience do not get bored by the monotonous scoring[which can happen,let's admit it] and are always interested and are on their feet.
3.IBF infact is giving a good reason why changing the scoring might actually favour the players.they claim that if the matches are made shorter then in the long run a player's carrer may be prolonged.while this sounds funny if thought about actually makes complete sense.So if changing the Scoring can make Taufik or Your favourite player play for 2 yrs longer,then why not.however none of us would like to see the duration of the matches drastically reduced.that is more important.reduced by 5-7 minutes or so would be okay.
4.if we employ 11x5 kind of scoring there will be more game pts,which might arouse even more interest.
5.Probably most importantly if IBF do employ 11x5 or 21x3 then this can only be better for TV commercials and packaging.A 11x5 scoring system offers the luxury of 5 breaks instead of just 3.And if the 21x3 scoring system is imposed then if i am right a player[if he wishes]can take a one minute break at the 11th point which is also good.
Lastly i narrate from my own experience that rally point scoring is infact much more enjoyable to play and also definitely more enjoyable to watch as compared to the current scoring.so if u have not, maybe you should try playing/watching once with this sort of a scoring.
i know a lot or most of us like the present scoring.but having said that why not try the rally point scoring and THEN give your feedback.atleast I liked it after I tried it.
