Yep it's true I haven't been around these parts in nearly a year and a half.
I do on rare occasion like today just pop in to see who's around, if the ladder has grown or if it's the same $hit as always.
I saw a bunch of posts regarding Rank Defense. I didn't read enough of the posts to get to the reason why it is or was an issue.
From Day 1 of joining the ladder that rule has been in effect. It used to be the top 10 that had to have rank defense and then this ladder had it changed to top 5 due to the lack of players back in late 2013 if I recall.
My two cents: if you can't play your rank defense then either take the penalty per the rules or take a voluntary rank drop.
This rule should not be removed as it has been the standard bearer of all ladders since inception of cases.
Nothing more, nothing less.
I hope ya'll are doing well and healthy as can be.
Keep on crushing!
