Welcome to the Oregon+ Ladder thread!
Last updated 6/06.
This thread is for the organization and discussion of the ladder system for Oregon, centered on Portland and including all nearby cities, including players up in Southern Washington.
Oregon+ Ladder Player Rankings
- PDX Jive
- Metal Health
- A Murder of Crows
- KINUE acid
- de BLOO
Challenges to the tie are for ninth. The player not challenged becomes tenth. I hope this makes sense.
Please contact me by phone or forum pm to be added to the ladder if you are not yet a participant. You will be added to the bottom of the ladder, tied with the lowest other players that have not played yet, so you can challenge the four active players above you. (Ex: There are twenty players, and you want to be a part of the ladder. You become tied with last place, so as to give you any lowest level players to challenge, or the four lowest active players)
Players are free to challenge anyone up to four ranks above them (So first place can be challenged by up to fifth place, second by sixth, so on and so forth).
If Champion loses, he switches place with Challenger.
You may only play another specific player once per session. You may challenge once a session. You must defend up to two times if challenged up to two times, but you may go beyond that if you wish.
Challenges to first place through fifth place are first to three games, two out of three rounds. All other challenges are first to two games, two out of three rounds.
These numbers are Angel’s suggestion to keep the challenge time down, I think they are too short, but I’d like the community’s thoughts on this. My suggestion would be 1st-5th playing ft5, everyone else ft3.
Players are free to play their challenge game anywhere. It does not have to be at the Soul Purpose house. You can challenge anywhere you can find a station. Even GameWorks.
As a substitution, you can play challenges out during tournament matches.( ex: R_Panda vs Fatbear are up in a tourney match. R_Panda makes the challenge request to Fatbear before their tourney match. Instead of playing a FTwhatever, the tourney results will determine the winner.)
Matches may be played online, if both players accept that method.
Upon challenging someone via SRK, cell, in person, etc., the challenger has one (1) week to find time to make the challenge. If the challenge is not resolved within the week, the challenger automatically wins the match and moves forward. This is to keep the ranking chart fluctuating constantly and not bottle necking player advancement. It also forces top players to be active players.
If there is a station ready to use and both players are present, you CAN NOT refuse a challenge. Champion must always defend. These challenges override challenges planned for a later time.
There are not to be any challenges at Ground Kontrol. It’s a casual and intoxicated environment.
Any new player not on the ranking chart can freely enter their name at the bottom of the list and begin to challenge.You will be added to the bottom of the ladder, tied with the other lowest player(s), so you can challenge the four active players above you. (Ex: There are twenty players, and you want to be a part of the ladder. You become tied with last place, so as to give you any lowest level players to challenge, or the four lowest active players)
Please understand that these rules will change over the course of the year. We need to mold it to fit our community’s style in hopes to help improve our game. So please feel free to comment and make suggestions to make this system unique and solid!
Good luck, players.
