    Default Trying finding a median...

    Lately I've been wondering. I've seen that a lot of players like the old rally system and a lot of other players like the new rally system. Sensible enough right? So what I'm thinking is that like we try to find a median between the rally systems. I know that die hard fans love to watch long and intense matches, and I know that players tire out a lot after half an hour or so. Why not try to balance? I was thinking maybe like there would be 3/5 games. Or there would be like 31 points instead of 21. I'd like to read other people's perspectives and inputs on this. So, what do you think?

    Shortening the game is one thing. The other I suspect is the distribution of match times. The old system definitely produces greater variation in match length.
