Hey all - I recently started a Ranking Battle system for 3rd Strike and it might be incorporated for other games as well. Here’s how it works:
1: There are currently 2 tiers of players (10 in each tier). They are Pro and Amateur.
2: All players are pre-ranked in both categories. I’m considering a 3rd tier (Beginner) to accomodate more players.
3: A player can challenge any other player to exchange ranks. Example - Amateur #1 challenges Pro #3, if Amateur #1 beats Pro #3, they exchange spots. I might consider limiting players to be able to challenge another player 5 ranks above his/her own rank. Matches are played best 2 out of 3, 3/5 rounds per game. Players will coin flip for preferred side.
4: All listed players are expected to play some games during a 2 week period. If a player is inactive, he/she is either put at the bottom of the Amateur/Beginner list and has to work their way up again.
5: Players must accept all challenges. The challenger has to pay for the higher ranked player’s 1st game (25 cents) unless both players agree to pay for their own games.
The higher ranked player has the right to decline matches if he/she has beaten the lower ranked player at least 3 times in the same day or has other commitments.
Any matches that are unfinished will be played at a later date or can be reset between the 2 players.
6: I think the list should be updated once (or twice) a week.
This system has been created to generate more interest in 3S and other fighting games.
Any input is appreciated!
