Hi everyone! I’m here to announce the start of a new doubles ladder event – Doubles Day
We couldn’t really think of anything more creative to call it than
that, sorry. Anyway, this event was designed to improve doubles ladder
activity, since that has been a bit lacking as of late.
Here’s how it works: every week, there will be a day designated as doubles day. On that day, whichever team plays the most matches
(winning isn’t necessary) will earn the new Duo Dueler
badge! It comes with a new name color: Black with a Red and Blue
Shadow. The color will likely change in the future (when Enigma gets
database powers) because Shadows were supposed to be mod only colors and
it looks a bit ugly right now anyway. But it will still be a new color.
The schedule of the event is tentatively scheduled to rotate from Mondays to Fridays
(Fridays may be skipped over if there is a major tournament going on
that weekend). You can find out when the designated day is each week by
checking the Doubles Ladder Partner Finder group
For the first few events (or as necessary), we will send out a group PM
reminder on the designated day for convenience - we might also
designate a time that day for mod teams to show up for a chance at the Double Danger badge
(depends on availability, of course).
The first event will start on Monday, May 13th
-Your team must have played at least 3 matches that day to earn the badge
-In the event that there is a tie in number of matches played, the
badge will be awarded to the team with the highest score. However, if
the score happens to be tied too, each team will get the badge.
-If a team that has the badge already plays the most
matches on that day, no one gets the badge for the week. That team will
instead receive TCG cards (including ones from the Duo card category).
Special thanks to xMARx
for the idea initially, Skyviper
for making the badge, and Enigma
for adding the color.
