We are pleased to announce a new real-time ladder which features a variety of amazing templates. This has been created using the CLOT framework provided by Fizzer.
Please check it out @ http://real-time-ladder.appspot.com/
If you find any bugs, have any suggestions or just found this cool, please drop comments our way on this thread :)
Master of the Dead and I will respond as soon as possible
Q)What is all this about?
A)This is a custom ladder, themed on Fizzer's real-time ladder. It was created due the current limitations of the RT ladder.
Q)Why should i play here?
A)The current RT ladder has a few luck based templates. If paired with a lower rated player, you could end up losing all the points you have gathered over weeks because of just one game. This ladder aims to address that by removing templates such as EA&O :).
We also have some really cool features lined up (coming soon!!)
Q)Can we have more/different templates?
A)You are welcome to suggest new templates. We would like to keep replacing templates frequently so as to keep things interesting.
We will have a round of polls within a week, where the community decides the next round of templates.
Q)Will you be making other ladders or team ladders?
A)We can make one, if we can get a sizeable group interested.
Q)When will the ladder start? Who will I get to play with?
A)It has already. Games are allocated amongst players currently joined on the ladder. The ladder tries to pair similar players together.
Q) How often can I play the same opponent?
A) You can play an opponent once every four hours.
Q) How are players ranked?
A) Players are ranked on this ladder using the TrueSkill Ranking algorithm. This system awards points only at the end of a game and does not make any further updates based on future results. This is similar to the current RT ladder.
Firstly, we would like to say that the work Fizzer has done on Warlight, is truly outstanding. The fact that he has provided a framework for others to extend, and create ladders, shows that he cares for what goes on around here :)
This ladder is in no way intended to be a competitor for the current RT ladder. Fizzer has many worries at the moment and must focus on monetizing/marketing so as to ensure Warlight's servers stay up and running. We view our efforts as something to better Warlight and help Fizzer.
