Ranking operates on a ladder-type
system. A win moves you up one place, a lose or a draw means no movement
up or down the ladder. Players can occupy the same rung as other players
at any time. An alternative tabling system will run in parallel using stats
provided by game logs. This will be ranked by ‘skill’ generated by GibStats.
(How it calculates it I haven’t a clue).
Games are to be played with
the Crystal duel mod on HoH vaq (126.96.36.199:27502) and at least one
of the players must make a client-side log, which must be sent to me. This
is done by putting ‘-condebug’ on the command line when executing qwcl.exe.
If players cannot agree who should do this, both must make a log! (This
is only a temporary measure until I manage to get GibStats to understand
a server log properly).
Duration is decided by both
players (minimum 10 minutes) on an agreeable map. If both players cannot
agree on game duration, 15 mins will be default. If both players cannot
agree on a map, a random choice will be made from the following list: DM2,
DM4, DM6, UKOOLDM levels 1-9, or QCON1. If you think I should include any
other maps in this list, please tell me.
Players decide whether quads
should be enabled or not. Again, if players cannot agree, a random choice
will be made (I’ll flip a coin).
Participants in this contest
can play as many games as they wish with any other participant provided
they abide by the rules above. Only members currently in Clan Pendragon
may participate. Players which defect to other clans will be struck off
the ladder just as if their games had not been played (cowards!).
