ETF2L Ladder: Test Phase – Nations Cup: Quarter Finals

ETF2L Ladder: Test Phase

Ladders have been the subject of several lengthy discussions on the forums since the ETF2L opened. We have recently finished putting together an initial version of a Ladder system for ETF2L. Its incorporated into the site in exactly the same way as the cups and leagues meaning that scheduling your games and submitting results should be as easy as any other competition.

We are currently looking for teams willing to play in such a system while the point system is tweaked. Signups are currently open and any 6on6 team with at least 6 registered players may join. Teams can be challenged on the Ladder page (by clicking the email link) or from the “Challenge” page at the dashboard. The map pool consists of all current Season 6 maps and teams can choose 1-3 maps to play on. Teams can be challenged at any time (the same team cannot be challenged twice in under 5 days however).

Points system

The current points system is based on the ELO rating system, with modification for the points difference in a result. Points are also lost for inactivity, this is currently 2pts/day after 5 days inactivity, however this may change. Please be aware that during the initial ladder test phase points and positions may change without warning. However all data is saved so no games that you play towards the ladder will be lost. Full details of the current system can be seen here


This system is likely to be updated but we’d be interested in any comments from teams playing in the ladder. If you want to comment on the ladder itself or the regarding functions and rules, feel invited to post a reply in our feedback thread.

Nations Cup: Quarter Finals

After a few days delay, the 1st Round of the Playoff Phase was finished. Besides Israel Israel beating Portugal Portugal, all other group winners managed to reach the Quarter Finals. From now on, there will only be thrilling matches on the highest competitive level. Be sure not to miss them!

Good luck to all remaining teams!
