And what if the player herself is hot?

Sorry to be the newb wandering around your thread, just saying I am really looking forward to joining your ladder when I get the posts and all. I have a hard time finding anyone to play GBG or any strategy game with.

2.You'll be able to join in when the council is ready to accept ya. Shouldn't take long anyway. When most of the other council member are going to see ya, they'll let ya in probably!

Well, I joined the league, and played my first match. It was a scary site to behold.

I challenged SWPhreak by PM, but if anyone else wants to play, feel free to challenge me.

Well, Luke's Dad and I just finished the closest, most exciting, most enjoyable game I've ever played. He was Rebels and I was Naboo, and the game went for over an hour, neck and neck the whole way! I won in the end thanks to having nabbed four of the holocrons early.

This ladder certainly has renewed my interest and even improved my playing. It's a shame the forum is getting deader each day...

EDIT: I tried to put the recording on my webpage for anyone interested, but it won't work. So I can't show off

Stop showing off vostok *shakes fist*

Nah it was a very cool game Even though I lost

The forum has seen worst days, it'll be fine in a few weeks.

The following people have not yet played a game:

-Corran
-Sith
-General Nitro

If you're out there, come on let's get playing people!!!

Vostok- Saberhagen and I were discussing the lack of ladder players as well as members of this forum. The trouble is, until GBG II comes out, it will continue to die if left to it's own devices. It is the sad way of game forums.

However, I know at least three friends (and certainly four if he ever gets his LAN worked out) that might be coaxed into joining the ladder and posting here. However, they are of course, not current members of this board. If you want, I coul.d try and get them involved, but don't wanna horn in, so lemme know.


I will play anyone, been discussing with Phreak if he wants to play a match, but he won't be available until next weekend at the earliest, so I'm up for soemthing. Any takers? I am prolly not that challenging an opponent (yet, that's why I need to play a lot of matches...to get better! )

They can join the forum if they want, that's not really our forum so we can't control who comes in(although I do have some admin contacts ).
If they wanna join, tell them to come here and post. We shall judge then if they're worthy of joining the private ladder.
New members are always welcome( PLZ I BEG YOU TO COME! WE'RE DYING HERE!).

Anyway, as long as they behave, don't flame, don't show-off, don't be jerks, don't think they're so greater then everyone, etc. They'll be accepted.

Yeah, what Luke's Dad said. They must join the forums though, we're trying to create a ladder for forum members, not a forum for ladder members.

I'll send you a PM now, Connemara...

If your guys promote this ladder to much it will only be a matter of time before the experts on the zone start signing up here and sweeping the ladder like a fire storm.

That's why we formed the council, to get rid of them

Seriously though, if a zoner wants to join the ladder just so they can prove they are better than the 8 or so ladder members, they need a better passtime.

I don't think the experts will be interested as most of them tend to treat this forum with toal contempt. Mega already knows about the ladder and dismissed it as a waste of time. Anyway, if they were really interested they would have kept the public pro ladder going, but it's been dead since March.

Frozted: do you want to join?

BTW does anyone understand the scoring formula, cos I can't get my head round it at all. I can't see how it evaluates to the scores I actually got unless I've misunderstood it or their operator precedence is severely wrong.

Play a game? Is that a requirement for staying on the ladder? Oh, well, all this talk about SWGB makes me feel reminiscent, so I just may challenge somebody (or check my PM to see if I was challenged). I'm nowhere near as good as I was in my hayday (somewhere between an inter and an expert).

I may well do the same and perhaps take a few steps towards reestablishing myself as a gaming god in my own right.
Or not. Overplaying of WarCraft III has left me slightly numb towards all sense of GB-style strategy. Shoot me, Sith... shoot me now.
But yes, I should be challenging someone pretty soon. It's just that normally I don't have the time to just sit down and play for several hours at a time.

The game that Luke's Dad and I played took longer than an hour... though we were exhausted by the end of it...

Note that is not a request for your dress and dance routine, Phreak.

"Play a game? Is that a requirement for staying on the ladder?"

Well, that is sort of the concept behind a ladder to begin with.

And I dunno what you guys are talking about. A good challenging GBG game (thats mean NO rushing) can take a very long time. But I don't see why you couldn't start a game one day, then finish it next time ya got the chance. That's what I do with the games I play.

Are you saying you'll overpower us? Well... overpower me is probably true, but I think saber and some others would own you <.<


Speaking of saber... I bet $30 he'll win the ladder!

I find it amusing that Frozted believes you can't be a good player if you haven't spent time on the Zone . If I have to play on the Zone to become a good player, I'll just stay mediocre thanks very much.

Frosted, this comes from experience. It doesnt matter how long you have been playing on the Zone, it matters who your opponents are. When I first got the game, I played in rook games for a long time, not chalenging myself, and winning a lot. But I was really only a good rook at best still. It wasn't until I started playing people above me (inters) that I got better. The smae thing happened with inter games soon. I just kept playing them and winning, and not challenging myself with games with good players. So playing for 2 years can mean nothing.

And, as for your statement about saber-I played many an inter+ game, and never saw you either. In fact, I only saw pbguy, who lives in my state and plays when I do only whenever I invited him.

Yeah, the Zone is lame. I used to play JK on there, and that was fun, but I imagine it would be less amusing to play GBG. It's a lot more satisfying just ripping into annoying Zoners with a lightsaber, but if you try and beat them stategically, they get angry and stuff.

See? I am nice, because I don't get that way. I can be creamed and just be like, ok.

Though I did get rather irrtable after I was rushed by saber...mainly because I didn't expect a rush maneuver. This time I was prepared, unfortunately, it did me no good.

Did you choose that map on purpose Vostok? Cause that is a seriously screwy game for whoeevr ends up on the smaller island.


Though I am also trying to master the art of scouting for holocrons and building up a decent fort at the same time. Apparently, I still have some work to do, seeing as I ended up with one holocron and Vostok had four. That makes a hell of a lot of difference.

Frosted-It was a year+ ago, so I dont remember names, but I never recall seeing yours.

And I do plan to challenge someone in the near future, just haven't decided who yet.

Clearly Frozted is scared that if he joins this ladder he won't be able to pretend he's the best player in the world anymore.

Connemara - well the map was random, I didn't choose it. And although I got the bigger island, most of the Ore and Nova was on yours, that's why I built that base at the bottom of your island. I did have heaps of carbon though

I don't care if you join or not Frozted. I'm not saying I'm the best player either but at least I don't go around thinking everyone else must be crap if they don't play on the Zone.
