one of my friends tried a ladder Challenge and it was Japanese rules but we wanted Chinese rules so he made a topic on it Ladder Rules Default To Japanese, Sadness X_X and someone told him that you cant and i don’t like it you should be allowed to choose which rules you can choose who’s with me!@Eagleeye.
There have been previous expressions of interest in this by the ‘Fast Correspondence’ group:
So ideally it would be good if groups (group admins) could set all the conditions for games within their ladders. Rule-sets, time-controls etc. Just like custom games.
Or perhaps allow players to modify the conditions of a game by mutual consent after it has commenced.
I think that within a single ladder or tournament all players should follow the same rules.
I agree with @Kosh that it would be nice to be able to customize group’s ladders.
So, if someone wants a ladder with chinese ruleset he could just make one.
I messaged @anoek on OGS about the ladder rule problem, and he said It’s not an unreasonable request, I’ll look into what it would take at some point.
I’m requesting this feature too. I have a group Chinese ruleset themed group and this is a real obstacle for us.
There is another case where an admin needs to have more control over a ladder: When a ladder is intended for bots only - as in the current deep learning challenge. In this case there is a definite requirement that humans cannot participate - at least the possibility for an admin to remove humans from the ladder.
Any way to achieve this?
I do think it would be awesome if moderators could at least tweak some of the settings on their group ladders. I can see all sorts of reasons for this (slow ladders, fast ladders, different rulesets).
That would also bring the possibility of making them more meaningful in a way, because, as it stands now, why join a group ladder if you can join the site ladder? It’d be the same but with fewer players, some possibly not even active.
I assume you have a group for bots then? Group admins have full control over their members so that should not be a problem…
The group admin can remove human players from the group, but they stay on the ladder, preventing the bots from competing against one another.
Ahhhh, I see. That’s silly. Let me get back to you on that one, I will have to ask the devs to try something.
