While the idea for the built in ladder and iron man seemed great when first released on Bnet, a lot of losers came out of the woodwork and found loopholes (abusing). Correct me if I'm wrong but pretty sure the ladder/iron man were only legit for 98/99. I like the idea of a slower speed and random maps with ratings/points.

Still fun to reminisce, who remembers some abusers at the top of the ladders during those years. I'll go first.

A lot of people said he went back and abused the old kali ladders once no one played there anymore. Which is pathetic. But you have to admire his drive.

See if you can find yourself in the Old Battle.net ladder reports. You can go to each page, then click through dates on archive.org to find more results. There are 20 pages and plenty of dates to go through on each page.

http://web.archive.org/web/20001006111931/http://www.battle.net:80/forums/warcraft2-laddergames/index.shtml

I have seen a ton of old free castle friends. Also a ton of .RU Players. Spbwar, TWN-Cancel, Valkrie, LuX, YWFN, $lick, JerryGarcia420, $pace, Tyrus, t-in, PhucT, Lance, Chayliss, Shotgun, Player, Cloud, Sexican, Sactownsfinest, Muscle[DTP], Rat, bash, Ripe, walli, JavionlinE, DP~Kassa, Badfingaz, creech99, fai, yah`mon, WPxPaladin, ArchMage ... and many more!

I think they really dropped the ball though by making ladder be played at such a slow speed. It was not what was in style at the time and I think the game could have been bigger if more thought would have been put into the ladder.

Do the mods or whoever have a way of resetting the built in ladder and ironman? That'd be fun to play again just for old memories sake. Oh and ban Ganz and other abusers.
