Masters and Doctoral degrees:: 3/18/2015 22:14:17

In our clan, it is generally accepted that taking #30 on the real-time ladder, or #100 on the 1v1 ladder, qualifies as an 'elite' player. However, it is obvious that there is a huge difference in skill between someone who can be ranked #100 on the 1v1 ladder and, say, szeweningen. Learning does not end there; as a result, we are working on setting a program in which players can achieve a Masters' degree, and then, if they truly do amazing work in 1v1, a doctorate degree.


This program will not be created overnight, and obviously, it must be created with realistic requirements and goals. However, for now the following requirements for the two degrees have been decided:


Masters' degree: Ranked #1 on the real-time, seasonal or 1v1 ladder;
Doctoral degree: no specific requirements, but thus far only Master of Desaster, szeweningen, Gnuffone and Kryzchu have earned it, with maybe one or two other players qualifying or coming close to qualifying.



Since teaching skill to post-undergrad players is obviously more challenging, I would like to set up a chat with some of the players who qualify for a Masters' and doctoral degree, to determine what resources my clan can provide to aid players in reaching the next level, and to iron out the requirements of the two new degrees. We hope to be able to provide such resources, as we are very dedicated to teaching, and providing an environment for growth in 1v1 skill. If you would like to be a part of this chat, please contact me.


On a side note, since I do not qualify for a Masters' degree, I have a new goal: to graduate my own school.

Give yourself an honourary degree.

I play by the rules I make. So, no: I will go through my school with no extra advantages. :)

Soon, hopefully. I'm hunting for an assistant manager before I add more. :)

Your just ripping off my clan name an turning it into a tiering system..... jk


So taking 1st on the 2v2 ladder doesnt count in your books? I realize the 2v2 ladder is the weakest (by team ratings) that I have ever seen. I have noticed some teams taking 1st with ratings of 1900ish but that doesnt mean that their hasnt been good 2v2 ladder periods where someone taking 1st should mean something.

To me, taking 1st on the 2v2 ladder does not count because you can be puppeted by a legendary player, and have a chance at taking it. The 2v2 ladder is not a great gauge of individual skill
