    I think 5 games is too intense especially for tournaments. It would be a lot of fun to watch but if i were a player and had to play multiple matches at 5 games a match i would be hating life.

    I think the game would be more attractive if we played best of 5 games, with rally-scoring just like the ping-pong players...

    Do you think they should have some sort of mercy rule? Like in baseball, if the losing team trails by more than 15 runs, or 10 runs after 7 innings, then the game is over.

    So in badminton, possibly 15 runs behind or more before 21 is reached, then the game goes to the winning player, and a new game starts.

    Just a thought - please don't grill me ... It means it'll help players out who play a lot of games, it saves them from tiring out in latter stages of tournaments.

    Advantage of a shorter game is that it gives a player much more credit to having a good run of points that the audience can understand.

    Is 7 games better than 5? Looking from table tennis, I'm not so convinced.
    I think 5x15 would be good. Its very easily implementable as to win a game comfortably, one only needs 45 points compared to 42 of the 21 point system. It means that for big games, it'll last longer and place more of a psychological emphasis. If you lose one game in the new scoring system, then u either win the next or get knocked out, however, if u lose 1 in this new scoring syetm, you still have a great chance to win.

    For the 5x15, cheung, would it have the same rules as the new point scoring system or does the point only goes to the serving player?

    Keep it short its no fun for me to watch when the games are draged out so long. 3 games makes it the most interesting.

    Since now its the 21 point system where every point counts. Players will be giving it their all to win the points. Is it was stretched into 5 games then its more of a fitness test towards the end and the match may last about 100 minutes. Good games may last up to 20 minutes per game. So I think it should be left as it is.

    i think 5X15 with new point scoring system would be good. and the player leading in 2-0 for first 2 games wins. it will make the game more exciting, and not wasting time if two players are not in same level.

    i can't stand 5 games. Too tired, especially for singles.

    Agreed.. 3 games is sufficient for all the needed sweating... 5 games is way too much for an amateur as us...

    For the professional game, leave it at 3. The 'Chinese Walkover' strategy is already a big advantage. A best of five would make it worse.

    People seemed to have forgotten when the OSS was in effect, stamina was a major factor. Since the NSS was implemented, it's been less of a factor. With a 5 x 15 system (rally point), it allows both the excitement of the NSS and the energy sapping requirements of the OSS. I've always considered stamina to be a huge part of badminton so it should be brought back into the fold.

    I vote for the 5 x 15 point system but only with rally point scoring. For all you whiners who are complaining it's too tiring, it's time for you to hit the gym

    i like the old system...15 points...
    because it is possible for a player being defeated 15-0

    now, the players at least can get one point...
    there would be NO 21-0
    too easy to get points...

    am i wrong?

    I'd like to see best of 5 in big tournaments like World Championships and Olympics, maybe even All England and the Sudirman, Uber, Thomas Cups. These are arguably the most prestigious tournaments and making them more challenging would add to their allure.
