Ladder FAQs

Postby AvarN » Sat Aug 30, 2014 10:29 pm

LADDER FAQs

How do I sign up to the ladder?
You can sign up in this thread by following the instructions.

When will I start gaining/losing points?
As soon as you are added to the thread above.

How often will the leaderboard be updated?
The leaderboard will be updated every day from 8 pm to 9 pm PST.
If it ever fails to update, all points won or lost will be counted for the following update.

What do the three numbers besides each player in the leaderboard represent?
They represent their wins, losses, and abandons in this format (W/L/A).

How many points do I win per game?
The current formula applied is: (50 + 10 * winning streak).

How many do I lose?
You lose a flat 50 points whenever you lose in-game.

Are there any penalties to leavers?
Yes. Leavers will be punished according to the following formula: (50 + 50 * abandon streak).

Will I lose points if I get dropped from a game?
Unfortunately, yes. There is currently no way to differentiate apart leaving from dropping.

My game counted as a loss/abandon even though I won!
Let the game kick you to ensure that your victories are counted!

Will I lose all my points if I use one of Blizzard's free SC2 name changes?
No. However, you will have to notify me of this change through PM or this thread to resume gaining points.

When will the ladder officially start?
The ladder will start on October, 2014.

Will there be resets to the ladder?
Yes. The ladder will reset quarterly.

Are there any prizes to the winner?
Yes, the prizes will be forum-related and hopefully game-related.

If we use one of Blizzards free SC2 name changes, will that effect our points/rank?

odd question but what happens if someone reply's to the leaderboard?
also im assuming that the currently posted one is in beta and the odd values are just there as a reference right?

general question: will i have to sign up for each incarnation of the ladder? or will my signup just port over to the new incarnation of the ladder (when stats are reset)

Nothing happens when someone replies to it. The "odd" values are just for reference, right, and ladder participation will carry over to new ladder seasons.

Prizes will be forum related. Hopefully akuma or Nubbins can add game related prizes too.
