Joining Up
Simply shout some [preferably comical] variant of 'in'. You will join the bottom of the table. Creative joining posts may well be rewarded with the rank of Jedi (see below). It is not too late to sign up. Don't join unless you are prepared to check this thread every other day, and are available for matches.

How The Ladder System Works
All competitors are ranked on a 'ladder'. Any contestant can challenge a competitor ranked one place above themselves; if the challenger wins the match (or the challenge is refused/the match cannot be played) they swap places on the ladder.

Rules
  • You may not challenge someone if:
    • They are not directly above you in the ladder
    • You have been challenged yourself
    • They have challenged someone else
    • You have played against this person in the last three days and neither player has played another ladder game since.
    • They have advanced past you by default in the last 3 days
  • When you challenge someone:
    • Say so in this thread
    • PM them with the times you are available
  • When challenged, a player:
    • Has 2 days to accept the challenge
    • Has a further 3 days to play the match
  • The challenger wins the match by default if:
    • The challenge is not accepted within 2 days
    • The game has not been played within a further 3 days (i.e. within 5 days of the challenge being issued)
  • Please PM me after a match has been played (or not, due to the 'deadlines' being missed)
Ranks
Every Wednesday, the player at the top of the ladder will recieve 3 points to their name, second place will recive 2 points, and third will get 1. 1 point will also be given for winning a match. The rankings are as follows (points subject to change):
    Jedi 1
    Power Ranger 5
    Pirate 10
    Mutant Ninja Turtle 15
    Stompy Robot 25
    Buddha 35
    The Supreme Buddha 50
Stuff
Please inform me if I have missed anything out, or if you have any objections/suggestions. If you would like, you can sign up to Defcon42 (some kind of ladder I think) here.

How are any of them superior to a Jedi, let alone a Buddha?

Fallingfear replied to my challenge and the game will happen (although probably not before wednesday), so I don't think I have won by default.

So please change mine and Fallingfear's position back.

Well technically if it isnt played before wednesday then you move up anyway...but then there is a gap in the rules where as you havent played in the last five days he can instantly rechallenge you and so on until you actually play. Anyway ill leave it as it is until i get a Pm from one of you.

I like the rank vampire...but how can a regular ninja compare to mutant nnja turtles and I never really liked ff7 :twisted:

Crap.
Me and whac were kind of waiting for the outcome of that game, as I'm challenging the loser of it. And whac is challenging the loser of that game.

I've been away for a couple of days but I don't think diomedes has challenged me?
I challenged him but he was away so I leapforgged...

I have defeated NukeLord, debrief and screenshot to come. This result sees me nicely placed in 5th, ready to assault the points-paying positions. This is mostly by default, though I have to say since I signed up early.

Edit: included screenshot

Edit2: Go here for the debrief: http://forums.introversion.co.uk/defcon/viewtopic.php?t=4883 Beware, it's a bit of a monster
