Introduction | [Week 1 | Week 2 | Week 3 | Week 4 | Week 5 | Week 6 | Week 7 | Playoffs] | Spreadsheet


Welcome to the second (GSC OU) week of RoA's fourth Ladder Tournament!


Weeks 1-7 will consist of qualifying by obtaining top 8 ladder positions in Gens 1-7 OU.
The week number will be equivalent to the generation's number.
For instance, week 1 qualifying will be on the [Gen 1] OU Ladder, Week 3 on the [Gen 3] OU Ladder and Week 6 on the ([Gen 6]) OU Ladder.
The following points are awarded the same across each ladder:

Points Per Ladder Position
2nd: 9
3rd: 7
4th: 5
5th: 4
6th: 3
7th: 2
8th: 1

If there are n ties for a position, additional positions (n-1) are filled beneath the tied position and the points are averaged out, according to the positions that are replaced by the tied position. E.g. If 4 players are tied for 6th, they earn 1.5 points each since 6th-8th offers a total of 6 points, which is shared between 4 players.

These points are collected for all 6 weeks into a qualifying leader board, the top 16 of which, at the end of the 6 weeks, qualify for the 16 man play-off stage, which will be seeded conventionally according to the leader board. Positions #17, #18, #19 and #20 will be listed as substitutes and be substituted in, in that order.

Good Luck. The final ladder positions for this week will be observed on Sunday October 18th, at 4 PM EST / 10 PM CET, and qualified users will be alerted in the concluding post of this thread.

The top 8 of a week will exclude players who haven't signed up, but still maintain its size, so there may be cases where the week's top 8 differs from the ladder's top 8.
