Players that have signed up for the ladder:
link to the current standings: http://alphacentauri2.info/index.php?action=pages
The following players have to state whether they are available for challege or not: zsozso, SgtSlick.
Players can choose to not be available for challenges, but this will confine them to the Veteran section of the ladder.
Quote from the rules:
"Challenges are the only way to move up the ladder in the Elite section. Any player may challenge any other player to a game provided they are both available for challenge. Challenges must be accepted if the challenger is immediately below the player challenged or if the player being challenged is not currently involved in any challenge game. If neither of those conditions is met, the challenge may be declined or deferred. Of course, players may play as many challenge games simultaneously as they desire."
So, even if you choose to participate in the Elite section, you will only have to play 1-2 games at a time.
