With the advent of the LC Council, it's no secret that the LC ladder has slightly dipped in activity. Fortunately, last month, we had a good increase in battles, but none of us should be satisfied with that! Let's aim to increase activity on the ladder even more for next month! One of the best ways to do this is undoubtedly by incentivizing the laddering process. In other words, goodies! Starting today, anyone who posts their alt here and breaks the 1450 mark on the LC ladder will receive half-ops on #littlecup (for you daft ones, that's the little % next to your name!). Mayhaps you already have those, or maybe you don't, but we will also provide anyone who breaks 1450 points access to the LC Council chat on irc, which is currently a closed channel. We believe that even if they can't ALL be council members, the input from the community that has played the metagame extensively and proved that they know what they're doing should have the opportunity to participate in the Council's discussions. Who knows, in the case of an absence, you may even be called on for a last minute vote! A big part of keeping our beloved tier alive is laddering, as it vitally influences the usage stats we see along with being the most objective representation of who's using what and with what. Whether or not you've found the motivation to do so before, we encourage you to hop onto the LC ladder and show us what you've got!
