Welcome to the fifth edition of the Monotype Ladder Tournament hosted by Havens and Decem
Monotype Ladder Tournament is a part of the 2019 circuit, meaning wins in this tournament WILL count towards the Monotype Ribbon (

This tournament will consist of two stages:

1. The first is the actual laddering portion of the tournament, which will last an entire month. The eight participants with the highest ELO at the end of each week will be entered into the playoffs. If a player "won" for multiple weeks, the next highest rated person will be admitted into the playoffs.
Tiebreak Ruling: If two players were to have the same ELO for 8th and 9th place, the player that progresses will be the user with the highest GXE for example:
#8: MLT5B1 Havens - 1949 - 85%
#9: MLT5B1 Decem - 1949 - 84%

Tiebreak rules will declare MLT5B1 Havens as the 8th place user of the cycle.

If two players are tied in both ELO and GXE, then a best of three of SM Monotype will serve as the tiebreaker.

2. At the end of the laddering stage (stage one), the playoffs will start with the 32 top ladder players of the month. Pairings will be randomized. More information on format and rules are listed below. Since there is a possibility we will need substitutes for the tournament, we'll take the 9th and 10th people in each period and randomize them as subs if needed. If you qualify as #9 or #10, you are still able to participate in other cycles and try to qualify for the top 8 of a given cycle.
  • Before you start laddering, you MUST create a fresh alt and post the name with the tag for that cycle (don't forget to register the alt!). YOU MAY HAVE UP TO 3 ALTS PER ONE CYCLE.
Cycle 1 Tag: MLT5B1

Example nick: MLT5B1 Havens
  • This will allow us to track who is actually entered into the tournament, and more importantly, that everyone starts on fresh alts.
  • In regards to discussion in this thread, I will allow discussion of what you guys see on the ladder. This can be anything from ladder trends to who's making a large push on the ladder. This is meant to be a competition of sorts, so compete and talk about it.
  • You can sign up at any point during any cycle, but you must use new alts with the correct tag for each cycle
Your rank on the ladder "resets" at the end of each cycle. You must ladder with a new alt each cycle and post it on this thread before you start laddering.
Cycle 1 ends at Monday August 19 at 12am EST

Before participating in the tournament, take a moment to read the tournament rules:
Good luck and happy laddering!
