Thread: 21-point is better
03-21-2006, 11:54 PM #52
better my ass -- all the best matches i've seen in badminton have been long ones... and now they have made the game shorter... call it shortminton
there are far more people complaining than complimenting the new system
and there is virtually nobody who wants to play the new system over the old outside of pro badminton
The new scoring is just a random change to the game they made with very little forethought in my opinion .... as far as my experience, I've played since I was 13 i guess thats about 12 years since i'm 25 years old now ... I haven't once in that time heard a single player complain about the scoring system ..nor anyone from other sports who played badminton - from like tennis or whatever.. yet it somehow needs changing?

I was there too. He gave a charity point I think....... Way too good!.
If there is no tie break at 20 all......then the maximum rallies possible in a game to 21 would be 41 rallies. if there is a tie break of 3 points then 46 rallies maximum in a game.
Stuart Brehaut was one player I could never beat in junior tournaments, there was another guy but can't remember his name.
I stoped playing for 6 years.... I should have kept playing maybe I would have been a substitute or their water boy--------->lol

Come on guys, how can you be in favour of the new rules
Fend. have you played a lot with the new rules yet, it sucks (can't find other words)
Badminton = 15*3 without rallypoint!!
Using the rallypoint rules it feels it ain't badminton anymore
Funny..nearly 80% of the people who participated in the polls are against this all (also on the dutch forum)
And still we are afraid to have to deal with new regulations..
If 80% of badmintonlovers is against all this, there's no way Punch will get his 2/3 of the votes, right?
(wish it was this simple )

Actually the Commonwealth games badminton matches do not have to use the new system. I wonder why they chose it? Is it indicative of the wishes of the majority Commonwealth countries? If so, there goes your 2/3 majority. Also China has officially backed the new system, and China is not without influence over most Asian and third world countries. The vote will be a battle royal. It is going to be much closer than the seemingly impossibe 2/3 hurdle.

I just hope it will all be somehow democratical, it's ok to influence small countries in my eyes..
but if there's any money involved in 'influencing small countries' that'll be a bad thing!
ps. I think the poll is clear about the 80% though (at least last time I checked it)

Also real leadership is called for here. The acid test is not whether the majority is for or against it; neither is it a popular vote. The results in the years to come will be the real judge as to whether the new system is good.
Just like in France now with the mass demonstration against the new labour law. I salute the PM of France for his leadership and far-sightedness.

Except for shorter matches (and of course, the confusion in doubles), there is no difference between the two systems. Whether you or your opponent serves, you try to win the rally regardless of the system (serving to the net is equally bad in both systems). So, the only major change is that the new system favours the player with less stamina.
Sometimes, it is really exciting to watch the service keep changing without any points scored. Sometimes, it is downright boring. Perhaps, it would have been more fun to see the players play catch-up on points, like table tennis.
My own preference: 5 x 15 PAR (point-a-rally)
Why? Well, I think the game should not be shortened. In thrashing games, the length stay about the same (42 points in 21x3 versus 45 points in 15x5) but in tight games, when it all goes down to the fifth game, it will be like the previous 15x3. I prefer PAR because there is a certainly that a point will be gotten. I only see server-gains-point in women's squash now. Other sports have adopted PAR.

The good thing about the new system is that the game is shorter and the players thus expose to lesser risk of injury. Furthermore, shorter play time is in favour of players with less stamina. Future badminton will not be a test of strength but a test of tectical game play. As a result we can see more older players stay in their careers, making the sport more competitive.

I prefer the older system myslef, higher chance of come backs. I have had a few where i looked to have lost the game but come back to win, you take away the chance of these with the new system. Although it is not not impossible it is much harder.
On the plus side, however, games are shorter so players are able to play well at the end of the game, because they are not as tired, cutting out tired mistakes.

The new system skews the scoreline slightly in that you no longer have to win 2 rallies in a row to score a point, so you have much more chance of winning points. I think that the new score system actually gives a more accurate reflection of the match as everything is recorded and everything counts.

Depending on the player tactics will change , it will for me and many others.
The new system favours the player with less stamina?
How can this be a good thing?
So players who are unfit will benefit?

It's not exactly that it favours players with less stamina. More like, a player with less stamina would like the new system rather than the old because games will tend to be shorter. There is no disadvantage to the player with more stamina. Stamina still plays a vital role, but not as big as previously.

I know you didn't say it was a good thing........It was more a question that was not directed at you . More of a statement than a question, like: how can this be good?
Yes, players who are more 'unfit' will most probably prefer this new system.

the new scoring system is excited to watch when both of the player are trailing almost the same point such as 19/17 etc.. But, they is no way or very hard for a player to come back when they are trailing behind eg. 11/19, because a single mistake will add a mark to the leading oponent. So, the leading player is for sure will win.
