FAF League Month System

The FAF League System

The First Ladder League Month: September 1st - October 1st 2019

What is it?
I’m sure many of you can recall architect and rowey’s ladder events that were meant to juice up the activity for ladder by introducing a sort of competitive board that rewarded activity. Well, long story short that’s basically the system I’m bringing back here. It will be a month long contest to determine the top, active ladder player for that month.

What’s Different?
I’ve decided to personally take charge of keeping it going so I hope to keep it maintained at a regular interval. I’m unsure what precisely I will do as the intervals but I expect I’ll do something like one month of leagues, one month off, one month of leagues, etc. Before it seemed to be more of a yearly event but I want it to be something that people of all rating levels can look forward to throughout the year.

I’ve also adjusted the point system to be a bit less focused on spamming games and to give people that play well, albeit with less games, a shot at winning even if they don’t sit on FAF for the whole day. Before the point breakdown was 2/0/1 for W/L/D and that tended to mean that two people would often skyrocket ahead of everyone else in their division and others could never really catchup. While it certainly rewarded activity, I think it just didn’t deliver any sort of competitive feeling as you tried to maintain your position because it always just came down to an equation of who had more time to invest into the ladder. I’ve decided to adjust the point breakdown to 2/-1/0 to see if that makes it easier for people behind to catch up to those on the top spots on the leaderboards.

I’ve also updated the league division breakdowns in order to remove an issue that seemed to occur during the last few ladder events. Mainly, people at the top of their league never being able to get a top slot because they could never match against those in the bottom tier of their league. I’ve broken the league up into 500 rated chunks in order to see if this prevents the issue and to see if further work will need to be done to make it fair for all players involved.

I’ve also added rewards for all leagues, but I’ll expand on those rewards down below.

The Leagues and Their Rewards
Supreme Commander League: 1800+
Major League: 1300-1800
Captain League: 800-1300
Lieutenant League: 300-800
Operator League: <300

The top player in each league will be given a custom avatar that will be active until they lose their title in the next ladder league month.

I will also be giving $100 to the Supreme League and $50 to the Major League champions. If additional funds wish to be given, PM me and we can discuss potential ways to divide the additional prize-pool.

I’ve got someone making the ACTUAL avatars for the client (and I’ll post them when I have them) but this is generally the concept you can expect.


Good luck everyone!

They will also get the Ladder Warrior Avatar that they will be able to keep permanently to signify that they have won a Ladder League some time in the past. Please get in contact with moderation in order to claim your avatar.

In addition, BabushkaNoob and HOSCHMOSCH can contact me with a paypal address in order to receive their $100/$50 prize for winning this month.

I'll also be posting a variety of stats that pertain to ladder activity that I was able to gather from this month some time soon.

27% (249 players) were in the 300-800 division
45% (418 players) were in the <300 division

1800+

Mean: 12 hours played each
Median: 11 hours
1280 game results, 575/558/136 results
which generally means 640 games played

1300-1800

The final league will take me a bit to process because I want to pay special attention to 0 rated players and it's also basically as large as the other divisions combined.

If anyone has any comments about the league system or any questions about stats, feel free to let me know.
