I've created a new CLOT which is a multi-day ladder based on 35+ 1v1 templates. All games honor vacations and have a 3 day auto-boot.
Check it out @ http://md-ladder.cloudapp.net/
If you have me on your blacklist, you will not be able to join this ladder, as the CLOT creates games from my WL account.
Once you have joined this ladder, you will be invited to games. You have to explicitly join these games as I cannot force-join you. If you decline, fail to join within 3 days or vote to end a game, it may count as a loss against you.
Do not join this ladder with multiple accounts. If caught multi-accounting, I reserve the right to ban you from this ladder.
It is still a work in progress and I have some more features I'd like to add. If you find any bugs, have any suggestions or just found this cool, please drop comments on this thread :)

On your player page:
- Are there any requirements to join this ladder?
Any player who has unlocked all the settings and maps used on this ladder can join. As far as I can tell, the minimum level is 53. If you have an old grandfathered account or have purchased the strategy and map packs, then you should be able to join regardless of your level.
If you're on vacation, the ladder will automatically remove you. You will have to rejoin once you get back.
- How are games allocated?
Games are allocated amongst players currently joined on the ladder. The ladder tries to pair similar players together.
- How frequently are games scheduled?
Games are scheduled every 2 hours.
- How is my next opponent determined?
From the list of players currently active on the ladder, you may be randomly assigned an opponent within a range of R-20 to R+20. Players are ordered on rating.
- How often can I play the same opponent?
Two players can play against each other once every 5 days.
- How are players ranked?
Players are ranked on this ladder using the Elo Rating algorithm. A detailed explanation can be found at https://metinmediamath.wordpress.com/2013/11/27/how-to-calculate-the-elo-rating-including-example/.
I'm currently considering if I should switch to Bayesian Elo(which is what Fizzer uses on the 1v1/2v2/3v3 ladders). If such a switch is made, the ratings may change a bit, but hopefully the impact is minimal as there are very few finished games.
Thanks to Fizzer
for all his work on Warlight and the inclusion of the CLOT framework for others to extend.Master Farah♦
