We're pleased to announce the launch of Ladder Season Two. The top solo and 2v2 players on all Battle.net gateways will be invited to participate in a season-ending tournament based on their ladder standings as of May 2, 2005 at 8 p.m. UTC (Universal Time Coordinated). In this tournament, invitees will attempt to dethrone Season One reigning Battle.net champions PhoeNix_ReMinD, Rival.Showtime, and RendeyQ. Players will have the chance to compete for their share of a purse of cash and prizes worth over $25,000, and claim their places as the new Gateway and Overall Battle.net champions! Season Two is being generously sponsored by top hardware and software companies: Microsoft, Alienware®, Creative Labs, Razer, D-Link, and Ideazon.
To create additional incentives for ladder players to participate actively on the Battle.net ladders, we are removing the level and experience caps on all four Gateways. This change will allow players to increase their level beyond the current 50 maximum, and will paint a clearer picture of who the top ladder players truly are. Additional information about how these changes will impact ladder players can be found in the F.A.Q. Note that the ladders will not be reset. The ladder changes are designed to create a perpetual ladder environment without dampening motivation for players reaching a cap.
Regular updates as Season Two progresses will be posted to this webpage. Good luck to all ladder players!
What changes have been made to the Battle.net ladders and how does this affect me?
We have removed both the level and experience caps from all ladder formats. Players were previously limited to level 50 and 22500 experience. This will have no impact on most players participating on the Battle.net ladders. However, it will provide a mechanism to establish who the top ladder players really are. Tournament seedings will now better reflect players' Battle.net rankings.
Will it take longer for players over level 50 to find games?
Players above level 50 will have the same search times and possible opponents as a player at level 50.
What are the post-50 levels like?
Post-50 levels will be extremely difficult. While the amount of experienced required to reach each level continues the same pattern as pre-50 levels, experienced gained from victories will decrease, and experience lost from losses will increase the further a player moves past 50. Only the very best ladder players will be able to maintain a high level beyond the current cap.
