    Default A Year Later: Let's vote on the New/Old Scoring System again.

    A year have passed since the adoption of the 3x21 rally based scoring system. every badminton fans should have enough exposure to how it works and probably have watched quite a few matches under it.

    So what do we think now? do we prefer the new or the old?

    NOTE, this thread takes over the old poll here:

    Still playing and hope to forever play the 3x15 system. It just allows for a much better game for both the players and audience IMHO because it allows for comebacks and psychological strategies.

    I'll put in the 2nd vote for the old system - I fully use the new system now but I liked how games were more intense near the end with the old system - now if the score is something like 18-14, there's a good 95%+ chance the leading team will win, it's just too hard to catch up.

    I still vote for old system. I feel one mistake should not decide the game. A player ahead of the game can just take it easy and win the game. It is more tactics. The leader can win on 2 points (1 for each game). No more dog fight...

    The number of women's players from China in the finals of the Asian Games.

    The number of times Lin took a game off of Hidayat in the past year versus under the old scoring system.

    New system gets boring fast.

    Old system is classic badminton.

    Old system overall, but I prefer NSS in singles!

    It all depends on what I'm doing.

    Watching a game? New system for sure, as it keeps the game moving along without stagnent score.

    Playing a game? Well then I prefer the old system (though the new system is fun to throw in some changes). Keeps the game a bit more on level ground, though stagnent scores still bother me.

    Edit: Oh yeah, in the end I voted for the new system.

    Hands down the OS. The NSS is just not for me even though it favors my game: panda dink attack!

    Officially, it is not quite one year yet. The new system was officially adopted by the then IBF in Japan in May of 2006.

    Though the new system is not by any means advantageous to me... I'm certainly a stamina player versus a speed one... I've found the strategic basis of it great. The added need for consistency allows the rallies to be longer, more fun, and more intellectually challenging.

    I'm definitely a convert.

    Plus I love that the score is now indicative of close games, when in the old version a hard fought game could end up beingi 15-7 and look like a pushover. Plus, I don't have to play to 11 anymore... BONUS.
