The site is now hosted by the boys from Digital Blood Sports, who have licensed the use of the Reverb software and taken over the day to day operations of the system, including the website, forums and lobby. I know that Dave is completely interested in setting up a ladder system and we have been exploring quite a few different types of ladder software, without a lot of success in getting any of them to run. To say that Dave would die to get ladder software running here, is probably an understatement.
With that said (and I'm sure Dave will respond as well), this site from it's inception, has always been about being a place to play and have fun. Unless some form of terror, or people who make racial comments are flapping their mouths off, the management here has taken a decent "hands off" approach in using tools on players.
You are more than welcome to use the lobby(s) here for your players to play. You should be aware that the lobby and server software has a fair number of features designed into it, including the ability to define a "tournament" lobby. This lobby type operates in the same fashion as a normal lobby, with some minor differences. The first 4 tables are reserved for taking "in's" and doing room assignments for matches. The ability to launch a game in the first 4 tables is disabled. The remaning tables are then populated with the playing teams, and until a TOURNAMENT HOST person (one with tourney tools) enables the launching, none of the other tables will allow the game to run. This prevents folks from just entering and then starting the game before it is allowed.
I'm not sure of the software you are using for the ladder side, but if it's decent and it works, Dave would love to have it running here. And I would be willing to take the time and effort to modify both the client and server code, so that game results can be uploaded directly into the ladder software.
Where do you want to go from here?
