Ladder Ranking

When participating in ladder tournaments, participants are ranked based on their result (Win/Loss/Tie).

  • Those ranks will mainly be determined either by Win Percentage, Win-Loss Differential or Total Wins, as chosen by the Organizer.

  • Ladders are commonly used as a Qualifier to another phase of a given competition, so you may see information regarding how many players are qualified.

  • In order fight for a qualifying spot, players need to play a minimum amount of matches, decided by the organizer. (If you don't have enough matches, you will always be ranked lower than those who have)

  • The automatic tiebreaker is based on the Total Matches Played. Organizers may use different or additional tiebreakers if necessary.
