Added the ability to "veto" templates. Each player can now mark up to 5 templates they wish to avoid. I'll update my first post with this information as well.

How this works:
  • Based on your(A) rating, an opponent(B) is chosen at random from 20 active players on either side of you.
  • A and B can both veto 0-5 templates each. The union of both veto sets will not be considered for this match-up.
  • From the pool of remaining templates, one will be chosen at random.
  • Your vetoed templates will only be visible to you. This is to avoid gaming the ladder. If someone increases their game count to pick a specific opponent and they know that opponent's templates, they could pick other templates.
  • You can change your veto list as many times as you like. I may change this in the future if I see players trying to gain an unfair advantage.


The intent of this feature is to encourage players who are staying away due to one or two templates which they really dislike. One of the main goals of this ladder is to encourage diversity and test players on different settings, so I'd like to keep the veto limit as 5 unless the majority of you disagree with me on that.



On your player page:




p.s - If anyone receives a game on a vetoed template, please let me know!

Pretty Cool! I hope people have a variety of vetos. It would be a pity if this ultimately killed the diversity of games.

From the first page:

Question = I'm missing something. If the games are created from your account, why does the partaker need to have everything unlocked?

Answer = Because of the way Warlight APIs work. I cannot invite someone to a game in an automated fashion when they haven't unlocked the feature as it is considered a 'hack' to overcome the feature unlocking system on WL.

It says that I lost to Krzysztof but we never played. I had accepted the game but he didn't. And the game link goes to "The requested game does not exist. It may have been deleted by the game creator."

This is new feature, not bug. CLOT calculated that you have no chance to beat me, so he opted just to move on and gave me a win :-) There's nothing to report, so it would be better if you delete your post and just play current games ;]

This is intentional. This template was made by Master Bjarke(I think) and it's always been dense fog. A recon card is useful on this template due to the dense fog!


BTW, I'm not familiarized with all the templates, there ara any with special sttings like multy-day, no-split, local-dep, commanders...despite the ones that have it on the name?
There are two templates on multi-attack(they will have MA in the name). There is one template on no-split(also has no-split in the name). There are no LD or commander templates on this ladder. If you do not like some of these templates, you can always "veto" up to 3 of them and the ladder will not give you any games on vetoed templates :)


Is this is why none of the templates utilize commanders?
Yes. Only members have unlocked commanders. Having commander templates reduces my target audience. Most of the players do not seem to like commanders either.

Sorry about that. This was a bug which has now been fixed. Any player who doesn't join within 3 days, will be awarded a loss. If both players do not join the game, a winner will be chosen at random. I will also delete the game, once I've recorded a winner(which is why you see the message that the game has been deleted). This is to avoid checking the status of that game and "cleaning" up.

I have also corrected the three games affected by this bug. If these results are inaccurate, please let me know.

Hmm, it looks odd having a gamelink to a deleted game, imh, what is the point?

Can't you replace the numeric link, with "Bye" or "Failed to Join" or "Forfeit" , well you get the point :P

The game with Verzehrer was made but he didn't join in 3 day's. I remember well as it was the only dubbed template of my 9 games.

Tanks for making this ladder.
Could you please consider to higher the "veto" up to 15, or at least higher it? Highering the veto shouldn't cause problems and only higher the freedom of the ladder users.

No. Just no. Next time think a bit more about your ideas, but it could end up with only 5 available templates between 2 players. truely not what this clot is about!

Yes with both having 15 different veto's, there will be only 5 available templates between 2 players. I don't see a problem with 5 templates they both like, it should only make for better games. But I agree 15 is a bit much, 10 would be better, so there will be at least 15 different templates between players, what is still 50% more then the real-time ladder has.

First of all thank you, the MDL seems to be awesome! Much better than 1v1 ladder for me.

@ Orange: The idea is to find the best player on several templates. The veto is only to vote something out you absolutely hate to play (f.e. I would vote commanders or multi attack out). Maximum 5 veto's seems OK to me.

I would definitely not increase the number of vetos. The whole idea I wasn't sure about because I was afraid that everyone will pick the no split and multi-attack templates and I never wind up playing those. But on the other hand I've happily put one veto to use already :)
