Hi guys,

I think I found a way to create some new stuff at the qm ladder. The question is now what do we want to do.

Please share your opinions here and justify your vote.

I voted for option 1.
Anyway I guess some QM tournaments can be fun but a whole month seems too long for me. When I think back of cw months the enthusiasm was lost after the first two weeks most of the time. I guess sometimes a two week tournament or something like that can be fun thought. But need a general ladder in my opinion.

2v2 Qm October is active for this month so let's see how it goes first.

Afterwards you could do the same thing for new nicks again for a 2 week period instead but at the right time so it doesn't interfere with the general rankings.

After 2v2 Qm Fiesta we could change nothing and it would leave a nice level of competition for Qm to continue from the old names. Like a higher league within a league and take it from there.

It would be a shame to reset the old stats and the new now because it shows players win % but after comps we could reset the entire 1v1, 2v2 ladders in the summer next year so every player then has a chance to start again.

Timing is the key.

Well, the algorithm of points is more important in a "ladder", more than anything..

What is the purpose?
-To Make people play more?
-Find out the new skills?
-Polishing ancient players, whatsoever?
-Find out enthusiastic players? Depends an alot.

How should a player lose/gain points depending on opponent rank?
-Whatsoever..

IDM for me.

However may have suggestions; Is it possible to make monthly ladders, however, keep a overall one, too? Make a monthly ladder, and add the results every month, to an overall ladder. Could be interesting. Or Leave everthing else and make a League: suggest everybody play vs everybody in same counts, and in a certain time period, and even predetermine mu's.

Addition made on november 3, 2018:
Spoiler

I don't like the dual existence of cw and qm. Should come down to one qm, and automated in the future. CW site doesnt help anything else than keeping the ladderage records with a pointing algorithm of its own. also, dualims is not too good in such a small community, too.

What is needed to make it atumtically recorded? A html embeddble "software algorithm" that can read the victory signs, time stamps, & record the victory/loss from the replay file.

I am not a programmer but this shouldnt be too hard for a developer.I am just guessing, have not given much idea on what else it requires.

LOL it makes no sense not to add a weekly/monthly ladder... Have people lost their minds or what

I guess folks prefer static ladder as opposed to dynamic one which is quite surprising.

And bad timing for this poll tbh. We already have an active october qm ladder, why remove the spotlight from that? well, i know why tongue.gif

How often will the ladder be reset, should you start a new one?

Option 1 I guess. I would vote for a monthly ladder system, but it all depends on the activity. Either way, I think it's time for a new ladder/reset.
