Great Idea!

It's great for lower level clans, but if we are on the top of the board then we can't attack ?

I'm gonna assume you can attack lower clans if you're on top of the board. But the thing is, if you're on top of the board, would you want to risk losing rank? Since you don't have anything to gain when you're on top anyway, it's a risk without benefits.

Unless you give the clan who's on top a bonus if they challenge - and defeat - another clan in the top 5 or 10 or something. Otherwise the number one could just decline every challenge simply to stay on that position.

And then there could be a ladder, a highly standardized competition where clans fight other clans in clear conditions.

Are people in general interested in this? Or isn't this cRPG-ish enough?

I think this would be great fun. I'm all for it, if you have the time to build something like that.

Not sure about allowing all the maps though. Many are quite unbalanced. Maybe limit the ladder competition to a few balanced, arena style maps?

And what about ladder useage and siege sields in the ladder?

I kinda miss strategus though. Maybe get that back up first? Or start with a simplified version of the ladder system that's easy to build? For example, pick a few balanced, arena style maps and make an official 'ladder' server that keeps track of wins and losses and has a simple web interface for setting up matches? I dunno, just thinking out loud...

Thought it would be about real ladders. Featuring two spawn points where the two teams have to use ladders to connect the battlefield.  :mrgreen:
