    Ladders
    specialized battles, where you fight for fame and glory... and a little prize too for some

    Ladder List:
    Opening this opens a list of all the different ladders that the forum has available. It is greatly suggested that you review the rules for each ladder, as each one differs.

    Ladder Challenges:
    If you have been challenged or have been challenged, the list will appear here under the top box titled "Challenges".
    In the middle, a box titled, "Your Teams" acts as a separator.
    The third box, also titled "Challenges" rests at the bottom. I have presently forgotten what goes in this box as it has been a long while since I have used it, but I will be attempting to obtain the information soon.

    Before moving onto Admin:
    although this is not one of the sub sections in the competitions section, it is quite important when dealing with the ladder section. Scoring.
    I will break this up into individual points. You will probably be confused at first, but by the end, you should hopefully see how they all link together

    1. By winning battles, you move up the scale
    2. By losing battles, you move down the scale
    3. By having a draw, you move down the scale
    4. As you win battles, you will accumulate points depending on how many pokemon you have at the end of the battle. [This number does not matter, it is just a little side note (although, it MIGHT be used to decide a #1 tie)]
    5. The system will calculate you win percentage as well as your longest winning streak (although, sometimes it may be off)
    6. Who you defeat or lose to does NOT matter

    7. By moving up the scale, your "Elo Rating" increases
    8. By moving down the scale, your "Elo Rating" decreases
    9. To input a score, you will include how many pokemon your opponent is left with and how many pokemon you are left with (this will vary with ladder)
    10. If you have remaining pokemon, this will be added to your points as seen in fact 4.
    11. Even if you had an accepted battle against a user who dropped out of your ladder, and you decide to insert the score as 0-0, you will still drop rank
    12. The usual prize for being ranked #1 in a ladder is a free 30 day subscription
