Yeah I considered excluding all cases where members play persons from their own country but that eliminated quite a few games, particularly in the USA. :p
Well i would think considering the Size of the USA and its huge population, Especially compared to other countries it wouldnt work..USA wins everytime regardless purley based on a massive amount of players. Current system is probably about as fair as it can be...yes players from each county play agasinst each other but i would think its all relative to player numbers and ends up even enough

Sounds like a best of three in the offing to me. :p

It would be fun to have a knockout tourney for the Top 10 ladder places to sort out the men from the boys, although that might well take the rest of the year to complete!

I would be delighted, but really surprised, if this worked @Stafford . My experience on CM ladders going back to CMX1 is that the higher you go on the ladder......the more cagey the guys get. Just taking it way too seriously and trying desperately to tilt the playing field to their advantage.

The stories I could tell......

Agreed, that does seem to be the case. Egos get delicate at the top. :p

I think there is a bit of a flaw in this ladder however, as a result of it being fairly simple, in that guys can farm green players for points without repercussion.
At a certain point beating a player a significant level below yours, say 50-100 points, the formula should diminish to zero - incentivising players to seek opponents closer to their own skill level.
I know the current system does have diminishing returns, but from what I can tell, even the highest ranked player beating the lowest ranked player will still reap at least 1 point.

As for the end of year tourney, it could be an 'invitational' of sorts, in that the first ten places are automatically invited - if someone in the top ten chooses not to partake, the 11th ranked player is invited, and so on.
Winner is crowned ladder champion - sort of like the finals in sports seasons. (Minor premier for ending top of the ladder, Major premier for winning the finals). Just an idea anyway.

I agree, although I do LOVE it when a new player is good right out of the box. People try to farm that person and get hammered. It happens rarely, but it is so great when it does.

Accepting bribes from either Titan, Nemesis or both and agree to throw a number of matches :ROFLMAO:
I read this quickly. Actually, I thought that you meant that I would get paid if I threw a match to a new player.

Yes.......I will throw matches for money!! Accepting payments on PayPal in USD!

The invitational concept sounds cool! If only already for reading the AARs :)

The fact that it would take a long time doesn't even matter that much, for example the football (UEFA) 'Champions League' is also based on the winners of the last season. Anyway not sure how realistic it is, but I like the idea :)

Desperate stuff!!!! those were almost two and a half years ago...This reminds me of the behaviour Deontay Wilder when he got destroyed by Tyson Fury and lost the heavy weight Title. He struggled to accept it. As I said yesterdays home runs mean nothing in todays ball game we have all evolved since then. You are not the champ anymore!!! I am:) Forget about reliving the glory days of past big fella its today that matters. Im on the throne with the Crown..thanks for keeping it warm you were never going to hang onto it with me around :)


I would like to take this opportunity to resurrect an old thread and point out that I beat Titan for the FIFTH time.


5 wins over Titan with 0 losses.

Slapped that crown right off your head, didn't I?

LOL....You got a marginal victory just for the record far from an ass whipping, and our previous game whilst it was not a ladder game it was still a moral victory in which i bascially ripped your arm off and beat you to death with it. So it does not all smell of roses in Nemesis country, you got given an absolute hiding hanging over your head...just not for the record books thats all.
