    Please add leagues and ladders in Quake Live

    Are there any plans to add in-game leagues/ladders similar to those in Starcraft II?

    In-game. Not outside of the game.

    Not sure if there's a business case to do it. Faceit is the new kid on the block and looks very promising - highly encouraged! Now if only they were to add iCTF!

    With those two initiatives alone players can drop their work lol. And there's more.

    probably not going to happen. We had leaderboards once. They are disabled for years now. The reasons (iirc) were people cheating the system and problems with load balancing. I can only assume they decided to not pursue this further along the lines of "better don't do it at all, when you don't do it properly."
    given the size of the dev team and the stuff they have to do before they should even think of ladders, you're better off jumping on the faceit bandwagon.

    I guess Ladders would require a new queue system that would automatically match teams and redirect people toward the games but I don't thinks we have the capacity, the resources and Im unsure if people would really be interested in these "forced matchups".

    That kind of competitive environment usually also bring most of the party poopers that become so obsessed with winning that some of their brain cells just explode resulting in them attempting to win at all cost even if it mean breaking the game, fortunately I don't thinks the game is popular enough to get these guys over here.
