OTOH, badminton serves puts servers at a slight disadvantage due to the lower than waist+wrist requirement. While the server still dictates the placement, the server is placed in defense whether he serves low or flicks.
The current service rule does in fact balances the game by giving the side that lost the last point that slight advantage.

Your suggestion is fairer only due to elimination of a variable and the said pressure point only arises from introducing changes in the game. This pressures both server & receiver. Your 21-0 match is boring anyway you change the serving system. IMHO, a balanced game is more exciting. A fair game of me vs. Lin Dan will be devastatingly boring. A much more exciting match if I play in a much smaller court (balancing).
The current service rule creates more pressure on the winner of the point due to that the server is essentially defensive after the serve. This balances the game making it slightly easier for the receiver to get a point. The victory is then more convincing if you switch your perspective from raw counting (the total number of serves) to that the winner survived an "unequal" odd by serving more times. In a close match, the ratio of service is evenly split anyway.
OTOH, if you are sure that the change is inevitable, this entire debate is pointless.
This discussion is off topic so this is the last I'll respond to this thread out of courtesy to the thread starter.

Sorry about bringing up this old thread again, but I was wondering if it's possible to create a poll of the current scoring system (rally point vs old) people are using at the moment, regardless of what they actually prefer (e.g. club rules)?
I don't seem to have the option of creating a poll.
