Hello!

I have been wanting to do this for a while, but I am implementing it today. I made a Ladder Tournament for 1 on 1 cubing matches.

The ladder for all events and some explanation are on here


But for easier access I have created the easy to remember link rebrand.ly/speedsolve

Essentially, this will be an ongoing ranking system where you can work your way up or down the ladder for the 11 main events (I originally had all 17, so let me know if you want e to add the rest) of the WCA. Here are the rules:

- You can challenge someone directly above you on the ladder to a match, and the winner takes the higher spot and the loser the lower one
- A match consists of competitors doing the same scramble, and the lower time winning a point. First to 5 points wins the match. This format or goal can be changed if both competitors agree.
- After losing a match, you cannot challenge that person in that event for one month.
- When someone challenges you, you have one week to arrange a time that works to do the match. If anyone is unable to or does not wish to do the match, that person surrenders and automatically loses. This time can be extended if both competitors agree. This does not count as a formal match, so you can still challenge before the one month period.
- WCA rankings will determine were you start, and if you do not have / do not wish to share your WCA ID, then you can still compete, you will just start at the bottom an work your way up.
- After a result for a match has been determined, post in this thread and tag me, or PM me.
- For matches I recommend using cubingtime.com, or cube.zone, or letscube.net. It is also recommended that you arrange a voice or video call.

Let me know if you have any questions! To join the ladder, PM or tag me, tell me what events youll do, and if you have a WCA ID.

Happy cubing!

This competition is now sponsored by TheCubicle.com, we will be giving away gift cards to competitors periodically, more details to come soon!

@PingPongCuber I'd love to join! I'll do all 11 events, and my WCA ID is linked here. I won't be able to do a voice/video call, but I'll be able to use any of those websites. Maybe you could create a Discord for this?

EDIT: I average way better than the results on my WCA account, since I haven't been to a comp for over a year. Maybe there is a different way to rank it?

Great! I’ll probably make a discord, and PM people the link. I’m adding you to the sheet now.

It is just fine that you can’t call, it’s just a reccomnendation


EDIT: I too average much better than officially, but it is just a way to start, challenges will ultimately decide it

@PingPongCuber I’m interested, I’ll do all events except for OH. WCA ID is linked below my profile picture.
You’re on the sheet!

Looks like there will be a lot of matches sorting things out. I’ll probably challenge CrispyCubing soon, and Micah might challenge me in the few events I am holding over him

Hey! I would like to participate in 2x2 (4-6 s), 3x3 (15-18s), pyraminx (6-10s), and skewb (10-20s). I think I'll just work my way up. Also, I made a cubingtime profile, so let me know what else I need to do. Thanks!
