Everyone is quite eager to boot JD and Davo out, but the ladder has only existed for 4 days. After 7 days, they should be put on notice if they have not competed in a match that has been posted. So, so far, JD, Davo, and Hero would all be moved down to the bottom with a ~ next to their name. Everyone would move up, and they have to compete with someone to work their way back up.

But it hasn't been 7 days.

And yeah, if you beat someone lower then you, nothing happens. But they should post that you beat them, as I did, so it will be recorded that you're still active and battling, so you don't get booted.

Booted to the bottom of the ladder for one week of inactivity? Very harsh!

I was just suggesting one rung down per week.

If that seems too gentle how about e.g. 1 rung every 5 days, or 2 rungs per week?

I think losing one place once a week would be more suited to most. Weekend players can still compete without being punished as I am a weekend player myself now and I am more than happy to lose a place if I decide to go for a dirty weekend away with Keira.

1 week of inactivity = 1 spot dropped, sounds good to me.

I beat Merc but he probably won't post it. TheRed witnessed it but I haven't much faith in him either.

No changes yet, but FYI...

Wasn't clear whether either of them wanted to join the ladder, but just in case I'll follow jynx's lead to post more 1v1s and log victories (both 1-0 on longish fights) vs. tinydancer and Icadil.

I also saw and challenged up to Davo who didn't respond and offered CaptPlanet a shot but we haven't been able to coordinate.

Also, I beat Icadil.

Congrats to hmmm for the top spot. Sadly I never see anyone above me in the ladder on but once a freakin blue moon. 7 is a healthy spot.

I haven't seen you on Perfect but if I am I would happily give you the opportunity as we haven't played yet.

Just to clarify the rules. If someone hasn't been active for a week they drop. What if posts are made regularly and that person has a valid excuse? (It's just I have a few things I wish to conquer in reality over the next month)

Also, if I win against the top guy I assume I go above him and not up one rung.

You play 1st spot and you win, you go to first spot. You have to defend the title though, or you drop.

If you are on vacation, we should temporarily remove you if it's gonna be a month or so. Then soon as you come back, you're put back on the list at the same number you were at. I think that would be the best route. You don't lose a spot, but you don't keep your current one.

FYI, another case where I'm not sure if the player is on or will join the ladder, but I just beat Furycan in a surprisingly long 1v1 game.

Beat Perfect, 2/1. Adding Furycan, if he doesn't play he'll just drop anyways.

1. hmmm
2. Furycan
3. JD
4. Davo
5. Liquid
6. Hero
7. Capt Planet
8. jynXXX
9. Perfect
10. PV_mercenary
11. Hallali
13. Icadil
14. Keira
15. osetsky
16. PV_TheRed
17. Roach

2 things I'm noticing.

Hallali has beaten me, but because she beat me before, not after, I beat Perfect, she is below me. Slightly misrepresenting.

Furycan has played one game against 1 person, and he is ranked 2nd already.

My proposal to fix both of these is that you must play people within 4 ranks. This will eliminate major hops and bops, and keep it a bit more realistic.

Then the second one would be anyone who plays their first game, i.e. not on a rung already, will be placed last if they lose.

yay or nay?
