We are trying to revive said ladder (https://www.voobly.com/ladder/view/Age-of-Mythology-The-Titans/AoT-Deathmatch) with a group of 20-30 of dmers but because of such harsh decay (20 points every 7 days to 1699), it's impossible to really give any form to the ladder with current activity levels.

Can you possibly remove decay for the ladder or at least make it 2-4 weeks per 20 point decay? Thanks

Hey,

We can potentially adjust it, do you have some further backing for it from the community?

Cheers and gl&hf in your games,

And cap it at 1800 instead of 1699? Looks better

Yeah should either make it monthly or remove the decay completely.

We can do that if you guys think you can manage it, so far looks like monthly decay then? Removing it was a thought some time back as well as it didn't matter due to low activity, though now with some games it helps with tackling some more egregious point sitters at least a bit and shows active players.

The rating threshold doesn't probably matter much than for looks with the number of players, it can help stratify the playerbase if it's active.

We can also reset the ladder if you wished.

Monthly decay down to 1800 would be ideal. Losing points all the way down to 1699 is a lot for DM activity levels and if you get 1800 with as little players as there has been, that's an achievement in itself. A reset is not needed as the ladder is pretty new anyway, most of the guys playing it now have never touched it before.

Can we get a new ladder too like the plan for supremacy? We can run a DM ladder competition then.

Some weeks ago the proposal was refused, so what's the actual situation across the DM community?
