What we're about
Just wanted to inform you that we will be pausing Ladder Games temporarily to spend the time to overhaul the system and make sure it's something we are satisfied with.
Reasons why we have decided to pause:
1. System is too old
It was a big project that was written/coded five years ago and for some of the things I'm forcing it to do like making matches for 12 people when system only intended for 6 wasn't working very well
2. Time inefficient
Although I have been volunteering for the past 5 years to host the event, the organizing portion and making the matches are extremely tedious and even during the event night, I have to step on to change some matches to make it flow better, which I shouldn't have to if the system is working properly. Which means I am usually spending a couple more hours more than necessary every time for something that wasn't perfect.
That being said, we wanted to use this holiday chance to fix it rather than continue to put out an event we're 70% happy with. We hold our standards to higher than that.
We currently don't have an ETA of when it would be completed but if I had to give a date, it would be somewhere in February.
Keep on the look out for when we are back! We will be notifying everyone once that has happened.
Thank you everyone for your continued support and we hope to bring you only the best events in the future.
