Adding complicated rules to a dying game? Doesn't sound appealing.

New AVA Ladders

Postby Lightfoot » Sat Mar 04, 2017 10:37 am

Hey kids,

I've been dicking around with the idea of firing up the AVA ladders again...

No, not the dirty "give myself a Master of Funk" type that was set up in the absence of sanity, but the real, live, gritty "you'll never get 10 wins in a row unless you're The Jaff 'cause you can't be challenged out of of your bracket or by the same person twice" ladders...

Since there's only a handful of us there's no reason why it can't just be in a spreadsheet with a couple of calculations in it:

Wins - Losses = Value; Value is sorted from highest to lowest with ties broken by number of matches and then date joined if the matches are equal.

What do you think?

...well, it kind of doesn't matter what you think.

The ladder page is already "live"...

but for "Same Setup Racing", I do if I agree...I prefer uniqueness.
if it is "Must DO 1 SSR" within 3 or 5 division match, I agree. ehm it must be too complicated.
anyways, I can do the match on sat/sun (It's friday night or saturday night for you guys.)

We need some more tests.

SSR is an event type, not an AVA sanctioned race or combat format.

The only constraints in a ranked AVA divisional match is how much you spend on you setup and that you not be hacked.

:mrgreen:

I'll add you to the boards!

...maybe you'll issue the first challenge?!?

I'd be more than happy to be the referee / neutral observer for Wayek vs. Tex - D7.5 Races.

All that needs to happen now is for him to accept, pick a map and then a date...

Um...do you really want me to edit a 13 year old, greyed out post?

:shock:

OK, as a side note, I edited the post.
