  • Lower Pro-Ladder Requirement?

    I wonder how many are actually in PL right now...It is so hard to climb normal rank without meta, and even with meta I guess it won't be easy.
    I'd like to propose let ppl with rank18 or above to enter the PL next season

    Why?
    It's meant to be the access to professional eSport ultimately. And there is enough cannon fodder to make the queue times pleasant at the moment.

      On a side note, Lyserus, you seem to be having a bit of an obsession of getting into the pro-ladder based on this, this and this.

          Like... everybody says how much calmer, diverse and fun it is in the PL. And yet the requirement to get there is ridiculous - grind with the meta deck(s) to no avail and than fade in obscurity, cause you can't play nothing else if you want to progress.

          I think the RL needs more adjustment. I have no problems with not being in the PL, but game wise, both modes do look kinda ass backwards compared to one another.

            I really mean no disrespect as I understand people have different goals. But it's hilarious how people complain how they can't get on a ladder designed for top players, only to play against players that are much better than the ones preventing them getting to the pro ladder in the first place. Is it an ego thing?

            And partci is on to something. Kind of looks like the more laid back Pro ladder system should be the normal one, while the cutthroat ranked system at high MMR we have on the normal ladder should be reserved for the Pro ladder.

              I'm playing the Pro Ladder and I can say that the queue time is annoyingly long.

                Since there are no direct rewards, I believe keeping the req high insures that you're only seeing the best players on the ladder.

                  Maybe it's a timezone thing. There is hardly a case I wait longer than 15 seconds for a game. The matchmaking depends on fMMr as well I think.

                    TV_JayArr I believe you're right. I tried playing again today and it's as you said, no longer then 15 seconds. So I'm invalidating my complaint here
