CCL - Carcassonne Central Ladder
« on: December 20, 2017, 04:59:09 AM »
About 2 years ago I started an auto-magic Ladder that allowed people to sign up and challenge players on a Ladder System.

It was only for playing the Base Game, but if it proves popular, I can create different Leagues for people to join.

You can sign up here

I've going to be shuffling the ladder and resetting the scores after New Year, but if you want to familiarise yourself  with how it works, you can read the information and sign up now.

One of the issues with the ladder was the Administration Script needed to be executed daily.  I've not got that running as a cron-job, so at midnight UCT, the server executes the script and shuffles all the players who haven't played their games.

Each game has 7 days to play + 1 day of grace.  It periodically sends emails of challenges and reminders to schedule games.  It also keeps track of all the games and points scored.

If you had an account previously it still works, but let me know if you're no longer interested...I'll remove your account (or put you on a break).

Cheers!

Don't too much.  I'm going to shuffle the ladder in the new year. Hopefully everyone will have a chance to login and practice using the system.

Good on you for organising it.  Looking forward to it.  I wonder if danisthirty is going to run the base game league as well.  That was good fun too.

The automatic penalization seems to be working now. So the advantage here is the slower players will be demoted and the active players promoted.  It should work well with upto about 30 ppl.  Perhaps we can shuffle every 3 months and add different leagues for expansions too.  Great to have you aboard!

Signed up, but not received my confirmation email to be able to activate my account. Maybe the hamster isn't spinning in his wheel yet...

Most of us have had problems with emails ending up in spam folders, so I'd check there first of all even if just to rule it out...

Rosco never responded to my challenge and it's past the expiry date now, but the system hasn't updated to reflect this yet.

It might have gone to your junk folder.

Ok let's play - there is 1 day of grace so we can still play tomorrow.  Are you available?  Jcz or Android is ok for me.

I can se a reminder was sent yesterday.  If you're using hotmail it seems the spam filters and preventing the arrival of the emails.  I have no idea why hotmail is affected. I'd recommend switching to a 21st century mail host!
