Season XI of the Champion Ladder started last Wednesday (Nov 29th) on all platforms. Official announcement.
We received a lot of feedback about a tweak of the rules on PC/Mac. Champion Ladder on PC/Mac are here, updated every seasons. For season XI, we have tweaked the rule concerning the "wildcard" teams, which are the eight teams qualified for the Champion Cup, additionally to the top team of each race.
In season 10, we've qualified as "wildcards" the eight second-highest ranked teams (maximum of one wildcard per race).
In season 11, we have changed this rule to qualify as "wildcard" the eight second-highest ranked teams from a pool of set rosters that changes each season. This pool of eight "wildcard" rosters would cover all 24 teams over three seasons.
We received a lot of feedback about this change, and posted a topic to explain the logic behind this contested change. Please take a look and comment - any constructive response is welcome.
Discussions about what we want the Champion Ladder and the Champion Cup to be shouldn't be restricted to a small group of admins. Our biggest mistake has been to implement the rule change before discussing it with you. That's why we'll switch back to the season 10 "wildcard" rules for the season 11 and we'll now apply a minimum delay of two weeks before a new season to announce any rule changes.
We're not implementing the new wildcard rule this season; we're open to suggestions and we won't put it in at all if the vast majority of you are against it.
Waiting for your feedback on the Community discussion topic about the Champion Ladder.
Have fun on the pitch,
