The list is old a needs a bit of housekeeping, I'll be doing some pruning as I go along here, so please post if you're still active. Also, please review the rules everybody, I'm making some adjustments to reflect current atmosphere of the community, which is quite a bit different than when this was initially written.
Also... This is actually going to be the first time I've put myself in charge of the battle ladder, which is kinda fun.
WHAT IS A BATTLE LADDER? A battle ladder is skill ranking system, where players fight for higher spots. Its a lot better at determining skill than a traditional tournament, It keeps itself up to date, and its a lot of fun.
WHY SHOULD I ENTER? Firstly, its going to be crazy fun. A competitive level adds a deeper level of play that enriches the gaming experience. You will have to opportunity to add skilled players to your friends list, and expand your own skill. And it will likely not likely be too demanding to participate in.
HOW DOES IT WORK? 21 people are divided into tiers, and ranked according to skill. People challenge for positions they want, but are only able to challenge people on their own tier, or on the tier above them. Here is an illustration: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v331/chainmaillekid/Challengepyramid-1.png
HOW DO I ENTER? In order to participate in the ladder, you will normally need to challenge and win somebody in the bottom tier. However, occasionally there may be open spots in the bottom tier due to players leaving, in which case it goes to whoever claims it first. If there are a lot of challenges going into the bottom tier, another tier may be added, which will open up a whole slew of new spots.
WHERE CAN I FIND THE CURRENT RANK LIST? A ranking list will be posted on this thread whenever I update the list, you can also check the latest posts on this thread for changes that may not have been published yet.
WHAT IS THIS THREAD FOR? This thread is for publishing results, and for discussing rule the sets/restrictions. In order to make it easy to keep the ranking updated quickly and accurately, This thread is NOT for announcing challenges, or for organizing matches.
1. Challenge the current holder of the title that you want by PMing them. Itís not a challenge if you donít PM them.
2. Wait for them to respond (If they do not respond in two weeks, they forfeit, and you win)
