The Ladder Topic

Hi, everyone

Since I haven't enough knowledge to create a real ladder, I suggest to do it with this topic.


It works pretty easy :

You don't have to join, you just play a 1 versus 1 to 20, win by 2, with the player of your choice, and report the detailed score here.

 

You will earn : 

- 4 points for a win

- 1 point for a loss 

- 2 points for a "loss by 2" (from 21-19)

 

I will make a ranking and update it weekly at least.

Every month, there will be a champ', and the scoreboard will be reset.

You can play the same player twice a month at most.

 

Remember : the more you play, the more you get points...

 

Hope to see a lot of games, have fun.

 

Greetings, Achille.

Re: The Ladder Topic

In the old days with TetriNET, I remember there was a ladder game hosted at Case's Ladder. The loser had to report the score. Maybe we could use something similar, or create one from scratch.

Btw, is there a way to turn spell checking of in this forum (and I don't mean in the browser where it's already disabled).

Re: The Ladder Topic

Yeah it is perfect. Although we don't really need evidences ;)

 

Since noone else has played yet, you are the current leader of November !

Re: The Ladder Topic

I think this is a great idea.  This would help  more accurately show players rating relative to each others skill rather than our current leader board based on a wins/points system.  I'd be down. =P

Re: The Ladder Topic

Im currently working on a ladder website using joomla and a chess league manager component which does exactly what we want. This component can be used for other games too and i already contacted the creater of it and hes willing to help me customizing it to make it work for cultis. The thing is, the whole thing is in german and the creater is willing to help if I can translate the component to english.

Now my question is is any1 willing to help me with this(cause my german isnt that great)? and if possible does any1 have a host where i can setup the website?

Re: The Ladder Topic

Achille that point system isnt going to be a good one i think. I think there should be some sort of formula because if ranked 1 player plays against a ranked 100000 player it wouldnt be fair if the ranked 1 gets 4 points.
