Ladder Rules and Regs

  • You may issue 1 challenge at a time
  • You can only be challenged by one player/team at any given time. This prevents outstanding challenges from accumulating against you
  • You may challenge up to 5 spots
  • If the challenge is successful, you will take the spot of the person you challenged and your opponent will be bumped down 1 spot
  • Everyone starts the competition with a wildcard
  • If you hold a wildcard, you may challenge anyone above you
  • An additional wildcard will be granted after 5 matches have been played
  • If challenged, you will have 7 days to "Accept" or "Deny" the challenge or the challenge will be considered a "forfeit" and the challenger will be granted the win
  • By accepting a challenge, you agree to play the challenge within 10 days after the date of acceptance.
  • If you cannot play within 10 days, simply "Deny" the challenge
  • If a challenge is accepted and not played within 10 days, it will expire and the challenge will be deleted from the system and will have to be re-issued. Of course, since rankings continually change, a re-challenge may not be possible
  • Your ladder admin is Ben Stickney and can be emailed at benstickneya@gmail.com if you have any questions]
