Welcome to the seventh edition of the Monotype Ladder Tournament hosted by Bondie & maroon

Monotype Ladder Tournament is a part of the 2021 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 for four weeks. The four 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:
#4: MLT7C1 Bondie - 1749 - 85%
#5: MLT7C1 maroon - 1749 - 84%
Tiebreak rules will declare MLT7C1 Bondie as the 4th place user of the cycle.

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

2. At the end of the laddering stage (stage one), the Playoffs will start with the 16 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 5th and 6th place users in each period and randomize them as subs if needed. If you qualify as #5 or #6, you are still able to participate in other cycles and try to qualify for the top 4 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 1 ALT PER CYCLE.

  • 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 the 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.

Before participating in the tournament, take a moment to read the tournament rules:
Tournament Rules
Guidelines

Any person found cheating will be subject to strict punishments.
To add onto that: if we have a reason to believe you forfeited or tied a game that you don't believe to be lost or endless respectively, you will be sanctioned.

BE WARY TO REGISTER YOUR ALT BEFORE LADDERING. Any alt caught laddering beforehand WILL NOT QUALIFY FOR THE CYCLE, EVEN IF IT HAS ENOUGH ELO TO DO SO!

ALL GAMES WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY PUBLIC! This is so spectators can watch high levels of ladder play.

Cycle 2 Tag:
MLT7M2

Deadline for Cycle 2 is Monday August 9th @ 7 AM EST (GMT-4), good luck and happy laddering!

Good luck and happy laddering!
