All ladders on CG have had a couple of small, but fairly major changes.

From today teams are able to challenge 50% of their rank plus 3 places. Previously you could challenge 50% of your rank or 4 places above, whichever was greater. This change is mainly to allow slightly more teams to challenge into the top 5-10 positions.

Secondly the Protected/Vulnerable status have had one change, they are now:
If you win a defending match you are protected for 2 days.
If you win a challenging match you are protected for 12 hours (previously not protected at all).
If you lose a defending match you are vulnerable for 12h.
If you lose a challenging match you are vulnerable for 2 days.

This change is to allow teams that are moving up the ladder to continue to move up until they lose, this is particularly helpful for above average teams that join a ladder late into the season.

These changes are essentially on trial, if there's any issues they'll be revisited.

Thanks

Do you think there is a possibility when we get bigger as a community those vulnerable and protected titles could get dropped to a lower amount of time?
Great idea also.

There is a FAST and TURBO mode for the ladders that admins can enable.

FAST halves the above times but keeps pretty much everything else the same. TURBO removes them entirely and allows matches to be offered with very little notice such that you can offer times as low 15-30m in front of the current time.

very nice very nice, it's annoying to see above average late-in-the-season-made teams miss out in finals when they deserve to make it.
