Hi Andy, there‘s an idea spinng in my head for quite a while and I realized it would perfectly fit the announced season ladder mechanic.
The idea is to have separate ladder where you are ranked only against your friends.
You can add friends in the game via their email or player name. You can then display a friends only ladder.
For some Gold you can create your own ladders with a custom name, e.g. Andy‘s Ladder, and add some other players to it.
Either way the ladder would exist only for the season. A player’s Xp on a private ladder would always be the same as on the season ladder.
Currently I like Alternative 2 a bit more. What do you think?
Thanks for the suggestion, I think this is a great idea! I'd really like to have a friends list in the game. It would help a lot with matchmaking for multiplayer games.
Once there's this friends list, I could add a personal friends ladder to show out of the box. Probably even with a switch between standard / season.
The friends ladder could then be part of the existing player pages, like https://mazebert.com/player/115.
