Kind of a follow up from the other thread... The rating system needs to be fixed to develop a robust PvP community, but I also think some other improvements can be done to get a better experience out of Mordheim Warband Skirmish. Some of these suggestions have been done elsewhere, but I'm putting them all together here... GOLDEN PASS : Costs 10 Fate, grants Blessing of Morr and Verena for ONE week (+7 days if already active), and allow the player to create and play a new Warband in the GOLDEN LADDER for the current 21-days season (which will give rewards to top rankers, to potentially reduce the net cost of participation, see GOLDEN LEADERBOARD, below). Each player may also use a special voucher ONCE to enter the GOLDEN LADDER with a new team for free (for the whole duration of the current season, with maybe a warning if the season is about to be over soon so that the voucher is instead saved for next season). This voucher, however, won't grant the benefit of the Blessings of Morr and Verena. This special offer is necessary for players to at least try the concept once. GOLDEN LADDER : Only players who have purchased the GOLDEN PASS (or free voucher) can enter this PvP ladder, and only with a newly created team (easily identified with their 0/0 shards). Each player can only have one registered team at a time (to avoid farming with two devices). A player can decommission a team and register a new one at any time, however. ALL MAPS are UNLOCKED in that PvP mode, and all missions are Occupy scenario, because : Warbands are forced to move into confrontation zone. Games are certain to be concluded in 8 turns or less (with a few exceptions). Warbands are encouraged to grow and expand to win this scenario. All Factions can potentially win this scenario, even slow Dwarves. Also, in GOLDEN LADDER, death results are rerolled, each team benefit from lesser chance of injuries (as Underdog bonus), but injuries are permanent. Heavily injured units will have to be dismissed eventually, and this creates an interesting complexity (and diminishes a bit the problem of P2W). Idealy, no more than one of each kind of Hired Swords can be recruited in this ladder. GOLDEN LEADERBOARD : This leaderboard should reset every THREE weeks (a "season"), and track not the rating or shards of Warbands, but the win rate of registered Warbands. Top Warbands will receive rewards (Fate points) based on their ranking. Example : Top 5 : 10 Fate. Top 6-10 : 7 Fate. Top 11-20 : 5 Fate. Top 21-50 : 3 Fate. Top 51-100 : 1 Fate. I'm tempted to predict Skaven Pistoliers would dominate in this format, but then it takes some time to develop this archetype, and because the format is PvP only and Occupy scenario, I think the metagame will be refreshingly different that what we currently have in the ladder. How do you like these ideas?
