Post subject: Ladder Season 1 Registration **READ*** Reply with quote

I thought now things seem to be gloomy it would be a good time to try to cheer the place up with a bit of competition. Here you may register, but PLEASE read the instructions on how to register first.

First of this is called Open Ladder tournament play. It is known in the gaming world as the easiest way to maintain a consistent competitive and prestigious style of tournament.

Quite breifly, players in open ladders compete for the highest 'rung' possible. The greatest benefit of it all is that this is a continuous tournament that is scheduled by those who participate. Obviously if you are in 1st rung you are beating everyone in GM that is in the ladder. Initially, the order of positions will be done by whoever registers first.

You will get chances to challenge players for rung positions up to 3 to 5 rungs ahead of you (still deciding on official ruling). If the tournament has 20 people then the rung positions will be 1 through 20.

The season lasts from March 13 to April 13 at the end of the season the top 20% of players in the ladder(no larger than 5p) will play in a 4-5p match to see who gets points for being the top dog of the ladder.

It costs 5k to enter (your points will be deducted upon entry into the season) and you must have 10k to qualify. We will not begin the ladder until at least ten people have registered. ONE account per person is allowed into the ladder. You may register for the ladder at any time up untill APRIL 1st. After which ladder registration will close. Once you register you are put at the bottum of the ladder wiith a record of 0-0.

The official rules will eventually be posted in a sticky thread and PMed to all entrants.

TO REGISTER FOLLOW THIS FORMAT: (This is a sample registration)

Name(Gone by): Magflag

Account Name: Welstrum

Best method of contact: PM in the forum or email oks06a@acu.edu

Best available days and time to play: Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays 10PM GMT


PLEASE KEEP IN MIND:

- If you plan on being absent for more than 2 weeks at a time, it may be best to register when you get back or wait until next season.

- If you do not like 2p, then this is not for you. THIS IS A 2P LADDER

- If you have really bad connection problems and hate losing a tournament match because of it, you may want to reconsider.

- If you do not like having a good attitude and good sportsmanship do not enter this tournament.


REMINDER: A detailed list of rules and how to actually compete in this ladder will be given out to participants and will be posted with in a day or so.

Keep in mind that this tournament only requires you to be somewhat active, other than that there is no set date or time you will need to set aside to play other than when yyou can on your free time

I recommend you have diffent ladder levels for different skills. For a 10k player to pay 5k in entry fee is half his points. This is just too much, since he will likely lose them to some smurffy expert on one of his 15 different accounts. For a 100k player, paying 5k on a chance to win something like 40k after a month of play would be uninteresting. A top 10 player can win/lose that much in 1 game.

I propose 4 different levels. I also like an idea of prize funds being distributed 50% to 1st place, 30% to 2nd and 20% to 3rd. Based on 20 entrants, you could advertise maximum possible prizes as below. Of course, the top sections might not fill up, so prizes would typically be a bit lower.

Good call Eclectico, I was just worried that we would not have enough players to begin with, but I do have a compromise for that! We will have 3 ladders.

Ladder 1: Minimum is 15k entry is 5k

Ladder 2: Minimum is 45k entry is 15k

Ladder 3 Minimum is 75k entry is 25k


As for the prizes it will depend on how many entries we get, but it is likely there will be points added to the pot at the end of the tournament for the winners from mods. In light of this new method Eclectico has came up with, I will allow a person an entry into 2 different ladders. If you have an account that is 35k you can enter ladder 2. If you ALSO have an account that is 80k you can enter into ladder number 3.

I will not allow all three ladders to be entered, because scheduling matches would get too complicated.

Anyone like that or should I change the entry fees?

ALSO. A particular ladder WILL NOT begin until at least 8 accounts are entered into that ladder. So advertise if you like this idea.

When registering use the same format as above, but at the end add:

Tournament ladder #: 1,2, or 3.

And also add the amount of points each account has on the side of the name.

Not specifically one. You in all reality have plenty of time. Its just there is an advantage to early registration, and it will get the ladder actually started more quickly (because we will not start a ladder until the ladder has 8 members.) BUt if a ladder is started you CAN still join it, so long as its with in the first month of the ladder.

Shouldn't we have a maximum entry too? To enter 115k into ladder 2 seems a bit odd.
