Ladder?
« on: July 05, 2014, 03:29:36 pm »
Pmprog suggested holding a ladder or tournament way back in 2012. This is an interesting idea. The problem would be having rules that manage all the variability in starting conditions, not just difficulty but all the mods that are available. I'd like to participate in something that compared our progress game-month to game-month.

Anyway if anybody has ideas about how this might be organized, please post.

Eventually I suppose there could be in-game support, uploading scores or something to a friendly site such as the mod site.

I actually thought you wanted a suggestion of soldiers being able to use ladders :( Should be possible though, would just be like a grav-lift tile drawn completely differently.

As to a ladder/tourney here I'm not sure how you want it to work, I suppose you could say pre-determined list of mods and then provide month by month reports via End of month council report and maybe graphs.

I like the idea of uploading scores, maybe something for the suggestions forum?

For a game heavily based on luck, this would be interesting. Make sure Sup posts this in the front page when it's ready to go on.
