There seems to be a lot of confusion on exactly what ways are legal ways to seek matches on the ladder. One would think that everyone would take the time to read the rules and understand them. Unfortunately, even when they are read, everyone has their own interpretation. In the hope that perhaps we might clear this up, I submit the following:
This means that if the number 2 player changes from day to day, try to play your different challengers every day. If you blow their doors off, you've earned the #1 ranking. If you lose, then someone else has earned the right to have the target on their back.
For players at any rank, it is your job to know who you are playing and their rank. If you are the #5 player and lose to the #7 player before you play the #6 player, you've just lost one day where you can defend your top ten rank.
As for other rules for our ladder, please use the frame at the left to select the RULES link and see what we have. They are designed to give us all a level playing field.
Thank you for your time. I know some of you hate my little "books" that I post on the forum, but the above data touches on what I see the most of in the mail room for our ladder. This will hopefully give us a point to start from. If I find that I am incorrect on anything, I will be the first to admit it and post a correction.
