    This is an article about the GO Ladders feature.

    What is a ladder?
    • A ladder is a system that keeps track of peoples scores to games. Using these scores, players get a score starting at 1000, which goes up or down. This means players who lose a lot will be below 1000 points, and players who win a lot will be above 1000. This number is called your ELO score.

    EL...what? How exactly is it calculated?
    • I'd really rather not try to explain complex mathematical formulas to the internet. Instead I shall reference you to the source I use on all my papers, ect.
      Elo rating system - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

      Basically it takes your ranking and your opponents ranking, and if you had a way lower ranking and win, your ranking goes up more. If you beat someone way lower your ranking hardly goes up at all.

    How do I start one of these fancy ladder things for a game me and lots of other Ogres play?
    • Simply go to the ladders page (click Ladder at the blue bar at the top), and click New Ladder to the left. Then choose either Players or Teams. I REALLY RECCOMMEND players, as it is pretty unlikely for enough people to be interested in joining and working together with a team to get enough teams to have a real competition. Also, scheduling with that many people really sucks.
    • To join a ladder, just click Ladder List on the left and find your ladder. Click ladder links at the top right and click Join Ladder.

    Cool. So how do I challenge someone?
    • First, PM them and schedule a time to play. Once you beat them, click their name on the ladder page and click Challenge This Player.
    • Wait for them to accept the challenge.
    • Go to the Your Challenges link on the sidebar and then click the link under status. Enter your scores. Your opponent must also enter the same scores.
    • Once this is done your rankings shall both be updated.

    This can be used for almost any game with PvP. Rock paper scissors even, if you assign 3-1 points for a win-loss, and probably 2-2 for a draw.

    Any other questions can be asked in this thread. Please rate this thread and thank if you found it useful. :)

    No problem! Do we need one on Tournaments as well? I figured they are much more self-explanatory, but I can do one if we need it.

    OK, we are going to try to use this again:). It looks like permissions are the biggest problem, but might can solve that via user groups.
