The recent switch of rounding method, from Weighted Random (WR) to Straight Round (SR) in the ladder games, attracted some big criticism. I invite you to voice your opinion here and vote on this poll:

Which one do you prefer in ladder games?
http://www.easypolls.net/poll.html?p=56069f9fe4b0148c68da6862

Ladder games concerned: 1v1 ladder, 2v2 ladder, 3v3 ladder

Choices available for each ladder (select one choice only)
1. Straight Round
2. Weighted Random
3. I don't know/mind

Each player can only vote once.
Both new players (who has recently joined or want to join ladder games) or old players are welcome.
Invite more people to participate in this poll. Bump this thread more. ;-)

Tell us why you prefer one method if you want.

yes as if it'd be the same for different maps or templates.

I don't see any complaints about luck in 2v2 ladder being removed. I believe this change is welcome by the community. Let's just keep it simple.

What I'm referring to is 1v1 ladder, 2v2 ladder, 3v3 ladder.
The old two are switched from WR to SR.
The new one is SR.

I think we should have a vote for all players who have reached the top of the 1v1 ladder WR or SR

Also I don't think one would prefer SR in 1v1 ladder, but WR in 2v2 ladder for example. It would be a really rare choice. I will keep this poll simple. :-)

But preferring WR for 1v1 but SR for 2v2 will be a popular choice. You need to make it more specific.

OK. I will create a new one to ask each ladder specifically. Give me some time.

Why is it stupid? Do you think your opinion is the only answer of this question?

Luck settings are a part of the template. I generally prefer 0% SR but for ME or MME there are lots of choke points so WR makes it much more fun, strategic, and interesting.

The 2v2 ladder could be either WR or SR the main issue is the number of starting picks per player.

The 3v3 EU ladder should be 4x4 0% SR,
If it were 4x5 0% WR would be better. However I believe (as the majority of the EU community) that EU 4x4 SR is best.

I think WR makes the game richer and more complex. It won't become less strategic simply because you play on a different map. Expansion is much easier in SR than WR as you don't need to worry about 3v2 or 4v2. Offense is a bit harder since you need to think whether you should put 1 more unit to ensure you must kill all defenders and capture the territory. Those things apply universally.

For people who like risk management or more diversity, I think WR is the way to go. For people who wants to keep things simpler or make expansion faster or care about absolute fairness, SR is the way to go.

I still fail to see why one would prefer WR in one ladder, but SR in another. I would like to hear more about their opinions on this.

"I think we should have a vote for all players who have reached the top of the 1v1 ladder WR or SR"

so you want to prove that most people who are used to WR and are good at it want to keep it? why? Perhaps aiming to start up an elitist ladder??

I think anyone who are interested in ladder games, no matter they are new or experienced players, are welcome to vote. The voice of any people in the community should be heard.
