§ 1 Ladder Basics
"Ladder" is basically a small competition focusing on Infantry, Tank or Dogfights. This competition has nothing to do with the main "Classic" competition nor the Inf/Tank cup. It will run aside the "main" season.
By this, we mean that individual players are able to set up their own small teams, which can be an Infantry, Tank, or Dogfight team. These players are able to stay in their "main" team's rosters as well. Moreover, the ladder is not time-fixed by the admin team and there are multiple table groups. Teams are able to set up their own small ladder wars anytime in the table group they want to. (It is a kind of invitation to play a small thing). They can set up multiple wars simultaneously as well. The details of the ladder war is similar to the classic wars. Date, time, player number, servers have to be set.
It is not compulsory to play in the ladder and the war invitation can be rejected as well.
1x1 ladders are also possible, but only in the 1x1 Ladder Table groups.
Player number in the 2x2+ Table groups: Minimum 2x2+ up to maximum 6x6+.
§ 2 Ladder Mappool
The so-called "Ladder" maps are gonna be in the mappool of each Ladder Table group. This includes every "IF" maps, "DF" maps, Tank maps + Dignitas Infantry CTF, and Knife Championship. Some maps will be played in TDM. This is showed in the table group mappools.
A team cannot pick one specific map 2 times consecutively. So for your first war if you pick IF Berlin, for your upcoming war you cannot pick it again. But after that 2nd war is finished, you can pick it again.
§ 3 Participating in the Ladder
In case of 2x2+ ladder table groups:
- You will need minimum 2 members in your team. 15 members are the maximum for a team.
- There must be a teamleader, and coleaders are recommended
- The rest of ladder rules regarding participation are identical to the classic League ones.
In case of 1x1 Ladder table groups, it goes without saying.
§ 4 Gameplay of the Ladder
Many of the gameplay/general rules of the ladder are identical to the classic League season rules.
This includes cheating, camping, pixelshooting etc.
The ladder maps are prepared in a way that infantry, tank, and dogfights are emphasized (No nades).
Stealing tanks is allowed.
If one team wants to play FFA (Fight For Middle) on a specific map, it is allowed only if the other team agrees.
If they don't, then the map has to be played "naturally".
§ 4.1 Special Ladder maps
- Dignitas Infantry CTF: Each flag counts 20 tickets. And the map is played until 10 flags are taken by 1 player.
Not introduced yet:
Set Timelimit to 20 Minutes, each Flag counts 10 Tickets, each Kill counts 1 Ticket. The made Kills & Flags will be substracted from the enemy Tickets. Since there are no tickets, we say that both sides have 200:200 Tickets from start!
Player A has got 5 Flags, made 5 Kills = 55 Tickets
Player B has got 2 Flags, made 2 Kills = 22 Tickets
200:200 -> 178:145 - Win for Player A
All wars which where played AFTER 28.10.2016 13:20 CET have to be counted in this way!
- knife 1x1: The players can decide themselves if they want to play 2 rounds or 4 rounds. If you want to play only 2 rounds, please enter the tickets for both rounds of each map. You can also decide until how many kills you play to. (15 is acceptable)
- Dogfight maps: You are free to discuss with your opponent how you want to play the df maps especially. You can use El Alamein CTF as well, but make sure you clarify what kind of planes you want to play with.
Overally, players are allowed to discuss how they want to play their ladder matches, as long as its reasonable.
§ 5 Results of the ladder / evaluation
Teams can lose and win points by either winning or losing their wars.
These points determine their ranking in the ladder table. In case of point-tie, "won WARS" are deciding. If "won wars" are also tie, the won rounds decide.
The players' collected tickets of each war will be summed. The player with more tickets of the 4 rounds totally wins. The rest is decided by the ranking position and the number of collected tickets.
The Points of all Ladders are generated by a Formula, existing of a few factors. Some factors are for example the Tickets of the Match and the current rankings of both parttaking Players/Teams.
§ 6 Protests regarding the ladder
We expect that all members of the league can handle this properly. If there are any problems, players and teams are expected to solve them. If 2 teams or players cannot reach to an agreement, then the players/teams should post in the forum or contact the admin team.
§ 7 Arranging Wars
All Players & Teams are free to arrange Wars. The Warlimit is currently set to 7 Wars, meaning that you can only challange another Team/Player if you play one of the old wars. To arrange the Wars, you have to talk to your enemy about time, day, maps and servers.
§ 7.1 Counting the Wars
You will earn Points by winning a war, and lose points by losing a war. The amount of points you win/lose depends on a generated formula. This formula consists of seperate factors, such as the amount of tickets & the place of you and your enemy.
Wars in Infantry, Tank and Conquest will be counted by Overall-Tickets. Wars in CTF will be counted by the taken Flags and Wars in Dogfight by the Kills.
The Results have to be entered with screenshots as a proof.
§ 8 The Ladder Season System
In all Ladders you can play against anyone registered in that specific ladder. After 1 Month, the Ladder closes for two Days, and the reached places will converted into Points:
1. Place 10 Points
2. Place 9 Points
10. Place 1 Point
§ 8.1 Overall Ranking
Only Teams/Players will get points for the overall ranking, if they have played at least 1 War. Players/Teams which havent played any war within this month, will get no points for the overall ranking.
After 3 Months ( 3 Ladder Seasons ), these reached points will be counted together and will form a ranking of the teams/players.
The best 3 Teams/Players of each ladder will gain a Trophy, regarding the gained points of the overall ranking.
After the 1st Month, the admin team will decide, which Ladders will continue and play effectively for the overall ranking.
§ 8.2 Equal Points after a Ladder Season or in the Overall Ranking
Is there a tie between some Players or Teams after each Ladder Season, the Players/Teams will gain the same points. The next place will stay empty then.
Is there a tie between some Players or Teams in the Overall Ranking at the end, the Players/Teams with the same points have to battle each other in an additional fight.
§ 9 Ladder Season Closed
The Countdown or News will show, when a Ladder Season ends. Regarding the Ranking, only the wars which were played and entered to the system before the countdown ended, will count! Wars after the end- time, will be deleted, points will be taken away.
§ 10 Rulechange and Ladders
The Admin-Team has always the right to change any rules, if this rule is not affecting the ladder too much in a negative way.
Besides this, the admin team has always the right to change, close or open a Ladder by any means if necessary.

We have Included some BFRM pictures as well in the tables, which can be also found in the above-mentioned topic! Version 2.0 final and 2.01 settings are the same.
Hopefully setting up the server won't take long anymore.
How ticket ratio works:

- 30 player server: (100% / 30) * 32 = 106%
- 32 player server: (100% / 32) * 32 = 100%
- 34 player server: (100% / 34) * 32 = 94%
- 36 player server: (100% / 36) * 32 = 89%
- 38 player server: (100% / 38) * 32 = 84%
- 40 player server: (100% / 40) * 32 = 80%
