I try as often as possible to place the shuttle at specific locations: corners, just after the net, ... Hitting hard on it doesn't bring a lot of things, except when you are smahing. It's a bit more intense also when both players play more tactical.
What about you ?

Ah! You are one of those guys that I hate to the core. I just can't play a game against them; they're too good.
I generally defend these placement gamers by giving most of my shots at a high velocity such that it would be difficult for them to place it tactically. They will have to give a weak return for me to smash.
I ought to agree, there are people who are too good at placements. But hey - I'm good at smashes.
