20% opponent range should be removed for 2v2 ladder: 3/22/2011 17:16:43

There simply are not enough teams in the ladder for this to be viable. Perrin and I completed three games yesterday, but we've only had one new game created (we are set to play three at a time). Presumably this is because of the 20% opponent range which was implemented recently ( http://blog.warlight.net/index.php/2011/03/announcing-warlight-1-1-2-v-2-ladder/ ). There are only 19 teams in the 2v2 ladder. 20% is 3.8 teams. We are currently in second place, so we are only allowed to play the one team above us, and the three or four below us (depending on how it is rounded off). Since those teams all have their available slots full, we can't get a game.

Even if we ignored the issue of not being able to get enough games, who wants to play the same 5 or 6 teams all the time?

Definitely. I had thought this was not in place. If it is then it should be taken off. We should also allow implement the option for players to be on two teams at a time (without playing themselves obviously).

I definitely agree on allowing players to play on two teams. That should help alleviate the lack of opponents somewhat.

The 20% rule should be adapted to 10% + 10, or something like that, so the next 10% (instead of 20), but on top of those an extra 10, independent of the number of players in the ladder. For 100 players, this would be the same as the 20%, for lower, you'll get more possible opponents (which I needed, I think).

I set my team too 5 and can't get more than 2.
