I like to know how other ranks the importance of each tournaments. Yes, i had said a win is a win and technically it shouldn't matter u won it from OC or a lower star open. However, because of prestige, prizes, sponsorship, the winning record of significant tournaments still apply to the general population. How do u see the order of significant of these tournaments, and i don't mean just going by the number of stars. Here is my first pass.
1. olympic game
3. Asian Games, All England, TC/UC
4. Indo Open, china open, sudirman cup, Dan. O, JPO, MAL Open
5. KO, HKO, Aust. O, US open, swiss open, dutch open, german open, SG open, commonwealth, china masters, European championship
6. MVP cup

My 2 cents..Originally Posted by cooler
As for the 1st three on the list, i think they are more to do with prestige/history. Personally, I would even bump up the Sudirman Cup to be in the same group as #3...
If you have European Championship, then how abt Asian Championships(ABC) or SEA Games??..

Undisputable top tournaments:
2. World Champs
3. Thomas and Uber Cups
The usual ones:
4. all the Opens (ranked according to prize money, except All-England which is regarded as one of the important Opens irregardless of its prize money)
5. Sudirman Cup ranked only slightly lower than All-England
6. Asian Games - the premier Asian event
7. European Champs - lack of quality
8. Asian Champs - a joke, no one really takes it seriously
9. Commonwealth Games - lack of quality
