Link to the ladder page seems to be broken?
anyone else having issue?
was wanting to get a hold of mluka because two guys above me on the ladder are in a 'match' that hasn't started and have been stuck that way for 4 months.. lol

If it's broke, don't fix it?

I had moved the site to a new server around four months ago and have had nothing but problems since then. Unfortunately, there's no guarantee that I wouldn't encounter similar issues on any other server.

To worsen the situation, I am absolutely swamped right now. I'm considering, rather than looking back and fighting the bugs in this old version, pushing out the new version, which is less-than-beta quality. If I can count on getting consistent user feedback - preferably more of the "this feature isn't working because of xxxxx" or "I was expecting xxxxxxxxxx but experienced/witnessed yyyyyyyyy" rather than "fix this $^%#$$%" - then that will be the way to go.

That would likely hasten the return of the team competition as well, but I must emphasize how buggy it will be in the early going for both ladders and teams if we go this route.

Sure, I play exclusively ladder and tournaments, So I'll give feedback.

I'd like the ability to challenge more than 2 spaces up when the ladder gets larger than say 50 people though. (o;

If its implementable i'd say <50 - 2 spaces up
50-100, 3 spaces up, 100-150 4 spaces up.. etc....

Just a suggestion.

I'll play either way (o;

Love the pyramid too.
