Playoffs ended about two weeks ago after the most chaotic season it has seen in at least three years, if not ever. There was multiple suspicions of people subbing for others, two very large disputes, site problems at least twice on scheduled nights, and issues with Nintendo's server. Nonetheless, even with all that chaos, we managed to finish only a week behind schedule thanks to the dedicated participants. Here are the winners!

Singles:
1st - SlayerZ
2nd - Gonzalo ZeRo
3rd - M to the Ekos
4th - Zorai.

Doubles:
1st - -Randum- + A-Oh
2nd - Killuminati Patg + Mysterion

Congratulations to you all!

With a new season upon us, we're looking to the future. This last two or three months, I've noticed all the comments the members of this site had to say about ladder.There's been statements about how we need more events, that there needs to be more hype, and that playoffs need to be run better. And so today, as with the other recent "times of change" movements, I present to you some of the major changes that you'll see from now on:

1. This season, we're looking to upgrade all of the rules in ladder. We want everything to be as updated and specific as possible so as not to cause confusion, and everyone will know without a doubt when something is okay or not okay to do. Invinciboy and I have already spent multiple hours towards updating the rules, and will continue doing so. That being said this season we will be enforcing the Apex stage list once again this season, and continue to do so for future ladders. The rules have been updated to show which stages the Apex stage list supports, so please make sure you're frequently checking the rules for updates.

2. We are considering the ban of double Meta Knight in Doubles ladder, but first we would like the members' opinion on it. Very soon, we will be posting a poll where you can voice your opinion on the matter.

3. Ladder and playoffs will be hyped once again! Bi-weekly ladder updates will occur on a consistent, rotating schedule, and we're going to have special events for ladder every weekend in order to give players more of a chance to meet the requirements. Meanwhile, Invinciboy and myself will be putting countless hours into hyping the playoffs and seeing what we can do to make things a little easier for everyone.

4. Though all these changes are of significant importance, the most important change will be who's now in charge of ladder. About three months ago, when first working towards the site's revolution, I came to the realization that I can no longer offer the site what it needs by myself. Because of that, I decided I was going to distribute five of my positions to what Neal, JV_, and I felt were the most qualified staff. Though we haven't made a final decision on the other positions, picking the new Head of Ladder was pretty easy. So without further ado, let me introduce the new Head of Ladder: Invinciboy! From now on, he will be in charge of everything that has to do with ladder, including hosting playoffs. For this first season (at least), I will be helping him out. You requested that another person help the host out so things can run smoothly, and so it has been done.

There are more changes we have in mind, but those will be announced later.

"That which does not kill us makes us stronger." This famous phrase by Friedrich Nietzche has never meant so much to ladder and playoffs. We survived one hell of a season, and now that we know what needs to be focused on, we're going back to the drawing board and making sure this next season paves a path of improvement. Of course, we're always looking for suggestions. If you have an idea that you feel could improve the ladder system, let us know! There are no right or wrong answers, but please be clear with what you mean. (In other words, don't just say, "The playoffs schedule sucks! Enrish was an *** for using it!")

We hope you all enjoy the changes and proposals we've presented so far, and stay tuned for future updates!
*switches in* Hmmm? Oh hey there, AiB! Welcome to the 4th ladder update of the winter season! How are things going on in the ladder? We have reached way past the halfway point through the season, and I hope you ladder players are doing well as you try to storm for the top! Have there been interesting changes, or not much at all? We will just have to see what's in store for today. Just to keep this intro nice and short, let's move on to the rankings!

(No ladder replays have been sent to us for this update, but not to worry, submissions are still open! If you guys have replays of your best ladder matches you'd like to share and have it featured on here for the ladder updates, feel free to send me or Mocha any via PMs! Depending on how much we get, she and/or I will most likely pick a maximum of 2 videos for both singles and doubles to post up in the next update.)

Side-note: These top rankings have been taken at 5:30 am PST on [02/26/11].

Notes

Singles:
  • A Zero Suit Samus user, Agent Salem, currently takes first place with an undefeated streak while ADHD trails behind him by 112 points!
  • Newcomer, Phoenix vX, enters today's rankings with the only user representing Sonic. Great job!
  • MeroKnight has managed to get back on the top rankings, using a whole plethora of characters besides his main! Keep it up!
  • YoshQ seems to be doing very well this time around, as he 'super-jumps' from 25th to 12th with his Luigi (and some Meta Knight).
  • These following players have been dropped from the last update's rankings: [17]ChinaLee, [19]So Fatal, [26]Adam Gibson, [27]raytay824, [28]Kimchi, [29]Kain, and [32]Luckay4Lyphe
  • Top 5 Players with the Most Wins → ADHD (165), Zero Heart (133), Jules (128), Zebra (107), and YoshQ (91).
  • Top 6 Players with the Highest Win % → Agent Salem and FOW tie with a win percentage of 1.000, Ramona Flowers (.935), Koolaid (.934), ADHD (.917), and Atomsk (.914).


Doubles:
  • The top 4 of these rankings haven't changed much other than 'Flame's team' and 'DLK' switching positions.
  • Teams 'We both lost to Wolf' and 'we r gud' are currently suffering some decay, despite having undefeated streaks. Meanwhile, newcoming teams, 'Desu Forever!~ o3o' and 'Just fartin in the dark' have entered the rankings with undefeated streaks. Nicely done!
  • We first have double Snakes, then double Meta Knights, and now, we have a team of double Ikes being represented by a newcoming team, 'The Ragnell Legends'. Whew, this should be interesting.
  • These following teams have been dropped from the last update's rankings: [09]-WiFi GoDs-, [10]Team We Don't Lose To Lucas, [11]HATE US, [12]Debom and Flame, and [16]Sunshine Snuggle Brigade~.
  • Top 6 Teams with the Most Wins → 'Flame's team' (41), 'DLK' and 'BEND OVER CAUSE WE ARE GOING TO **** YOU IN THE *** icon_wink' tie with 22 wins, 'Muramasa baby!' (20), 'Team Red' (18), and 'Fiendnation' (16).


Alright, with the season ending on March 31st, we've got at least about a month before the playoffs come around.We shall see who can make it to the top 64 in singles and top 32 in doubles by then! If you haven't tried out the ladder yet and you feel like proving yourself to be the best, go for it! And as for the decaying players, you have some time to make it up. Keep it up, everyone! Until next time, see ya~ :]
