Uhg, why does the first template have to be a pick lottery? It is completely stupid that 1 player can get FTB for free like this:

LOL, my next game was completely rigged for me. Just seems stupid. I realize you don't want an overwhelming template to start with, but it doesn't have to be first turn bonus for free. It could at least require an army to stand guard or reduce income by 1 to prevent that.

i feel you, but a quicker solution is unchecking the template :D

Hard to do that when it's the only template you've unlocked, heheheh

For me I loved the RT Ladder, It was competitive and you had a trophy to fight for!

Yes, the templates sucked, but my opinion was the quick match template making system should've been implemented into the ladder. To get the RT Ladder popular!

Don't get me wrong, I love the idea of quick match for the common player and the idea of getting the public games going, but surely the true competitive element of real-time games has to be taken care of. The ladder shouldn't die.

+1 Platinum. It's still my favorite ladder since it doesn't require me to devote a ton of time to it.

Also quit whining Chris. You don't have to play many of those, and it's good for new players.

^what are you talking about Cowboy? I have already had to play small earth like 10 times and all I have unlocked is ANOTHER small earth lotto pick and a FFA?

I still have to win another 4 before I unlock the next template (hope that one is at least strategic in nature).

It isn't really whining, I asked a legit question. Why do we have THAT template first? Fizzer should reduce the income by 1 or something so that you can't get a FTB Aus or SA, without a combo. That seems pretty simple to me.

Fizzer acknowledges most new players would get a stroke if they tried using more than one brain cell, so the first templates avoid mental overexertion

The fourth template is MME, so once you get there you can just uncheck Small Earth and never play it again.

Honestly if you are lvl 50+ or so QM should simply give you the first 7 templates for free.

Long live the real-time-ladder!

It had a good life.

Adding the RTL to the app/quickmatch page would be a first step, or even just add a button beneath "Quickmatch" that says "Real Time Ladder".

I could do the programming for that. But yeah, reseting the ratings every year would be a nice touch.

And while we're at the policy of the RT Ladder, why not improve the other ladders?

Bring up the minimum game count to get ranked on the 1v1 ladder from 20 to 30. This really should've been implemented especially considering there was nothing achieved with the stalling thread.

I understand the fundamentals of the game must be upheld to please the masses to bring in the revenue to the game. Though simple Changes can really go a long way.

If the 1v1 ladder copy-pasted the true ELO math, then the maximum number of games to get ranked on the 1v1 ladder could only be 25. After 25 games, ELO calculates scores using a different K factor, which reduces volatility per games after 25. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elo_rating_system#Mathematical_details for better explanation

Edit: I have no idea what I'm talking about, apparently new players now have K=40 until 30 games

Just ignore me ^_^

I like where you are going linberson.

If you are member you should have some QM templates unlocked!

"Bring up the minimum game count to get ranked on the 1v1 ladder from 20 to 30"

You could also change it so that you are not ranked until all 20 games you were allotted first are completed. This would end almost all stalling cases. If that's too stringent, you could do 25 games minimum, with a requirement, that the first 17-20 games allotted be completed.
