Topic Subject: RTWH Ladder III - General
posted 07 January 2011 11:40 EDT (US)   
This is the third incarnation of the RTWH multiplayer ladder.

Relevant threads:


Use this thread for general discussion about the ladder, to report problems with it or disagreements. We will attempt to resolve any disputes or errors as quickly as we can.

How Rankings are Calculated
  • Everyone starts at 0. A heroic victory earns you 5 points, a clear victory 4, an average or close victory 3, a draw 2, an average, close defeat or a clear defeat 1 (for participation), and a crushing defeat 0.
  • Bonus points are awarded to the winner depending on the differences between the two players' tallies before the battle. If the winner started with more points than the loser, he gains no extra points. If he started with 0-5 points less, +2. If he started with 6-10 less, +3. If he started with 11-15 points less, +4. 16-20, +5; 21-25, +6, and so on.
  • If the necessity of breaking ties should arise, other factors will be taken into account and balanced at the discretion of the Laddermaster - me. For instance, a greater total participation will favour you if you are tied with another player; however, if that players has defeated you before, this consideration will outweigh the former, etc.


    Suggestions for the ladder are always welcome!

    If you wish to contact the administration privately, please do not try to contact me as I am no staff. Email Punic Hoplite, or one of the other moderators.

    Time to sharpen our swords... And to find a way to get that wretched CD Key to bloody work.

    Hi! I was wondering, is there a way to change my gamespy ID because currently, it is totally unrelated to my forum name.

    Also fixed a dozen-odd links which only worked 50% of the time. If you spot any more, please let me know.

    Ladder Game Records and Standings updated.

    Oh, and I worked out how to change the Top 5 on the front page as well.

  • Punic Hoplite and Liamidas were tied for first place, but in accordance with 3) above, Punic is currently running champion.

    What would Average victory/defeat achieve?

    I don't think draws are possible in MP battles, at least I have never experienced one. So you may be able to sort something out there, unless you just classify it as the same as, say, a close victory?
    posted 12 August 2011 16:29 EDT (US)     9 / 13  
    Average is indeed the same as close. Sorry, missed that. It was in a previous draft though. I wasn't sure if you could have draws either, so I left them in just in case.

    EDIT: and Liam clearly takes the lead, shooting well ahead of the RTWH Clan Champion!

    I should have 29 points, not 30.

    And the games played- games won ratio doesn't add up

    I have recalculated all the rankings and they should now be correct. I will send you the spreadsheet Liam.
