kRs King Rogue Squadron Season 1 regular season winners and Season 1 playoff Champs!!!
CONGRATULATIONS to GSP Genetically Superior Players in being Season 1 Playoff Runner-ups!!
WELCOME TO SEASON 2!!! There are some new additions and changes to the ladder! ANY Suggestions or changes you guys would like to see made.. please post in the forums!
NOTE: Any communication regarding matches and roster must be made and agreed on in pre-match comms. Please Utilize this feature because if there are any problems in any match that is what the admins look to for proof as it is the official comms for FN regarding matches. So if comms not in there then agreements etc.. are not valid.
ALSO, If you have any suspicions about other clans game play. Please refrain from using vulgar and offensive language towards them in any way. Instead start gathering evidence by recording video and taking photographs. Keep respect at all times. If you have any issues please create a support ticket and provide whatever proof you gathered. Without proof then no action can or will be taken.. remember your trying to prove your case to a third party so EVIDENCE IS ESSENTIAL. So, do not leave the ladder because you think a team is not playing fair..it's not that hard to collect evidence to support your reasoning
We will be starting a BF4 Ladder as soon as it's out. Or just change this one.
Use the search tool below to find a match date/time combination that you are able to play. Please note

Requests must be made by submitting a support ticket at least 24 hours prior to the scheduled match time. The admin request must include the following in the support ticket:
If an admin is assigned they must be invited by the match host before match start time, and they will remain in the room to spectate the entire match. Admins may be requested for voice chat meetings with both teams as well. Same process applies as outlined above.
|3. Code of Conduct|
Code of Conduct
In order to create a friendly and comfortable environment for all participants, the following Code of Conduct will be strictly enforced:
Members will treat each other with respect at all times. No member will use comments about nationality, age, gender, race, religious belief, or sexual orientation to insult others.
Members will exhibit good sportsmanship at all times. There will be no taunting, harassing, or unsportsmanlike conduct.
Profanity and language of an offensive nature will not be tolerated, whether on forums or any type of voice or text communications. There will be no discussion of nudity, sexual content, use of illegal substances, or any other adult content, whether by images, text or voice communications.
Members will not attempt to manipulate the game or ladder system in an attempt to give any player or team an unearned advantage. This includes intentionally killing one's teammates or oneself.
Penalties for violating the Code of Conduct include, but are not limited to:
For more information on how penalties are assessed, please see the General Rules.
|4. Match Issues|
If a team/player disagrees with an Admin's call, they must submit a support ticket. Challenging a call made by the admin should NEVER be done DURING the match. Should any player attempt to argue with the admin mid-match, they will be subject to penalties at the admin's and/or Head Admin's discretion.
Each player/team will have 5 challenges to use per season. If your team wins the challenge, your 5 challenges remain. If the decision is not overturned by an Admin, then your team will lose 1 challenge.
Reporting Match Issues
If a player/team has an issue with their ladder match that they would like an admin to address they can submit a support ticket.
Teams/players have 5 days from the reporting of their match to submit a support ticket for admin review. If a support ticket is submitted after 5 days from the reporting of the match the support ticket will not be reviewed.
Included in the support ticket must be UNEDITED video as proof or images. Failure to provide proof may cause the ticket to be closed.
Reporting a Tie
In the event of a
tie during a match, a player/team will move onto the next map in the
round. If at the end of playing all the maps someone has not won best
2-out-of-3, then play the first map tied again.
|5. Playing Matches|
Teams must be actively challenging starting at the season's start date. Teams which are inactive over a two week time period may be set to inactive, at the Head Admin's discretion.
If your team is set as inactive, simply submit a support ticket when you are ready to have your team reactivated for play on the ladder.
Anytime a match is rescheduled, a change request must be submitted and accepted at least 4 hours prior to the originally scheduled date and time.
Accepting a Change request will add reputation points to your account, as will submitting a change request that gets accepted. This is to encourage matches to be played by rewarding them with community reputation points that make a member more credible in the community and available to more community events.
Unaccepted challenges with at least 3 attempted change requests will not increment the 7 day free decline counter.
If either player is disconnected before the first kill is made, the round must be restarted.
If a player is disconnected during a 1 vs 1 game after the first kill then that member will forfeit that game, regardless of score at time of disconnection.
If any player is disconnected before the first kill is made, the round must be restarted.
If while playing a team match and the host disconnects prior to the first kill the map will be restarted with a new host. In the event that the host disconnects after the first kill the hosts team will forfeit that map.
For Team Based matches the match shall continue if a player disconnects. If a player cannot rejoin the game after 2 mins a sub may be used. Teams are allowed a maximum of 2 subs per map.
A lag test must conducted for at least 60 seconds prior to any match being played, and any time the host is changed. Failure to conduct a lag test will cause any support tickets turned in to be closed. During the lag test, teams must pick the best player (from the hosting team) to host the match. If issues occur with players being dropped after the test has been conducted, teams should follow the drop player rules of the ladder.
All lag test must have either camera recording on an image available to show proof it was done. Teams can choose not to conduct the lag test, however, both teams must comment on the match comments saying that lag test is not needed.
Any team on a Team-Based ladder can have as many people on the roster as they would like - however only the specified amount can play during the match.
You may NOT switch a team member DURING a round of play, unless a specific Ladder's own rules permit, pursuant to appropriate circumstances.
You may rotate any eligible member of your roster for play at the beginning of any round.
It is the responsibility of both teams to verify eligibility of all players in the match prior to starting a new round. Playing with an ineligible player will cause your team to forfeit that round of play, unless both teams agree to allow the player to play as described in general rule 21.5.
If you identify the other team has an ineligible player on their team, simply ask them to replace the player with one that is eligible. Reference general rule 15.5 for more information on allotted time to get eligible player. If they can not replace the player, the round will be a forfeit for their team unless both teams agree to allow the ineligible player to play. This agreement must be done in the match comments section. There is no exceptions to this agreement or admins will not honor the agreement when making a decision on support tickets.
If both teams did not agree (in match comments) and team(s) still played with the ineligible player, submit a support ticket immediately upon the completion of the match. Ensure you have all the proof needed in the ticket prior to submitting it for admin intervention.
*Only ONE ineligible player is allowed to be used during a game if both teams agree using the guidance listed above.
You can check eligibility of who can play on your team by visiting the match details inside of your challenge management console. If the player is not listed, he/she was not on the team at the time of the challenge and the player is ineligible. It is recommended you get your team filled prior to challenging.
All team members must have an PSN account associated with their FN account. Failure to do so may also cause a player to be ineligible.
Failure to obey these rules will result in disqualification from current match, as well as a penalty designated by the Head Admin. A 2nd offense will result in removal from ladder competition.
Players may only compete on ONE Team per Team Ladder, and ONE 'rung' per 1v1 Ladder.
Players wishing to play on another team on the same ladder as a team they have already joined may be issued a Roster Exception. This roster exception is generated automatically when a conflicting team joins the ladder, and essentially deactivates conflicting team members from the opposing team's roster. To have a roster exception removed, a team member must leave the team, or the team must leave the ladder, and the opposing team may then remove the Roster Exception.
|5.7||No Shows, Ineligible Players, and Match Overlap|
In the event a team does not show at the selected time and server or have they an ineligible player as described in 21.4 teams must give the other team 10 minutes past the match time. If they still don't show or can't find an eligible player then the opposing team may request a forfeit.
Should the opposing team choose to wait longer, they may.
In the event waiting for another player causes an overlap to another match, both teams or challenging team will receive a forfeit. Ensure there are no other matches scheduled during the time frame it would take to complete the first match.
|6.1||Be sure to understand the difference between each of the following key terms:|
Map: In each match there are 3 maps. The term 'map' refers to 1 of the 3 maps.
Match: A match is the entire game to be played against another team. It includes the 3 maps and all of the rounds.
Round: When playing on a map, a round is when a team is playing as either the Attackers or Defenders, or Americans or Russians. Since teams play as both sides on each map there are two rounds per map.
|7. General Ladder Rules|
|7.1||Cheating and other Misconduct|
Refer to section 14 of the general rules.
Using a mouse and keyboard is not allowed.
|7.2||Use of banned/disabled weapons/gadgets/settings will result in automatic forfeit of the map. So if a teams agree on no mortars and it is also disabled on match settings and accepted by the other team. A team who uses that banned weapon for that specific match will forfeit the map. Glitching/cheating will be an automatic forfeit of the map.|
Certain rules such as Glitching/Cheating will cause a team to forfeit the game. If you are caught glitching/cheating (glitching/modded controller)
If you are caught once you will forfeit the match
If you are caught twice you will forfeit the match and receive a final warning from admin
If you are caught a third time you will be suspended from match play for 1 week and the players involved will be removed from team
If you are caught a fourth time you will be removed from the ladder.
First Map - player picked team hosts
Second Map - player picked team hosts
Third Map - higher ranked team hosts
EAST US server location is mandatory for the third map of every challenge. Unless both teams agree to play the third map on a different server.
Teams can agree to do all maps on one server.
In the event teams are both unranked then the Challenged team will host the third map
The third map must always remain random. We want it to be challenging for both teams and get teams out of their comfort zone and be able to overcome and be victorious. If you would like to change the third map agree to it on the pre-match comms and create a support ticket requesting a change and an admin will randomly pick one for the map change. The admins have the right to deny such requests.
|7.5||Requesting an Admin|
The "Request Admin" option should only be used to have an admin present at the start of a match to make sure both teams show up. If an admin is requested for a match they will join one of the teams participating at the start of the match to ensure both teams show up. Once they have made sure both teams are present they will leave and allow the team they were on to invite their other member.
When reporting a forfeit also make sure you submit a support ticket for that specific ladder. In this support ticket include the match ID, date, teams playing, details of what occurred, and any proof you have. This makes the admin's job much easier to determine who receives the win by giving us a better understanding of what occurred.
Failure To Show, Late Policy, & Server Setup:
If a team fails to provide a viable server within 15 minutes of the scheduled match time the first map will be forfeited. If the teams fails to provide a server within 15 minutes of the first violation they will forfeit the second map and lose the match 2-0m.
If the team does not gather enough players within the 15 min leniency time period then the team that does not have enough players must either play with the players that they have or forfeit the map. So if your team shows up with 12 and they only have 10 after the 15 min then the match must start 12v10 if you have 12 and they have 8 then it must be 12v8 unless its designated that the match is supposed to be 11v11 or 10v10 but same rule applies for that. In the event that a team cannot field at least 8 players then that team forfeits the game. so if its 12v12 and your team has 12 and the other team shows up with 7 then the match is forfeited and your team wins 2-0m.
If this does happen most likely the teams will be combined and teams mixed because of the failure to have the required 24 players. BOTH TEAMS SHOULD KNOW THIS BEFORE THE ROUND STARTS AFTER THE BURN ROUND. SO BOTH TEAMS SHOULD STAY AT THE DEPLOYMENT UNTIL THE TEAMS ARE FIXED BY YOUR TEAMS ADMINS:
|8. Rush/Conquest/CTF Scoring Rules|
Hardore Conquest & Conquest Assault Scoring:
A match consist of 3 maps. One map consists of each team playing 1 round as the Americans and 1 round as the Russians. First team to win two maps wins the match.
A point is received when a team wins as either the Americans or Russians. At the end of a map scores will be compared and the team which won by more points, wins that map.
Points from each map do not carry over to next maps. Each map starts out 0-0.
Example: Team A wins all 4 rounds (2 maps) as the Americans and Russians and Team B does not win at all, Team A wins that map 2-0.
If there is a tie in wins on a map then the winner will be determined by the ticket count.
Example: Team A wins the first round on American side with ticket lead of 150. Then in the second round of the same map, Team B wins on American side with ticket lead of 200. Because Team B has managed to win by higher score count they will be considered the winner of that specific map.
Hardcore Rush Scoring
A match consist of 3 maps. One map consists of each team playing 1 round as the Attackers and 1 round as the Defenders. First team to win two maps wins the match.
A point is received when a team successfully destroys a M-Com site. At the end of a map, points are added up and the team with more points wins that map. Points from each map do not carry over to next maps. Each map starts out 0-0.
Example: Team 1 blows 1 M-Com and Team 2 blows 0 M-Coms, Team 1 wins that map 1-0.
If there is a tie in M-Com's destroyed on a map then you must go by ticket count.
EX: This is a example where the match has just started and it is the first map
Round 1: Team A blows up 4 M-Coms with 50 tickets left
Round 2: Team B also blows up 4 M-Coms but has 55 tickets left
Team B wins the map and is up 1-0M because they had 5 more tickets than Team A
|8.3||Hardcore Capture The Flag Rules|
|9. Specific Ladder Rules|
|9.1||Ladder Specific and Selectable Settings:|
GAME TYPE: HARDCORE
Game Mode: CQ/CQA, Rush
Server Type: Unranked or Ranked*
Minimap: On* or Off
Team Size: 12v12* 11v11, 10v10, 9v9, and 8v8
Explosives (C4, Claymore, and AT Mine): Disabled or Enabled*
Mortars: Disabled or Enabled*
ROVs (EOD Bot and MAV): Disabled or Enabled*
* - default setting when creating a challenge
BASE RAPING / VEHICLE STEALING:
Base raping is allowed. Since it may be decided by ticket count if a Map becomes tied you want to be have the better ticket count in the end. Therefore you must be able to overcome adversity and work together to achieve victory by creating a strategy on the spot and adapt and achieve victory in those situations.
Vehicle stealing is allowed as of right now. This game is based on warfare. Which means you must utilize the resources at your disposal. Failure to do so will ultimately make you lose the war. So if your team leaders do not communicate a vehicle is up and are not aware of base defense then you deserve to have your vehicle stolen. You must have a high awareness level on the battlefield to protect what is yours. If your vehicle gets stolen you must quickly work together, communicate and take down that vehicle asap. Perform a SITREP (situation report) and change up the strategy quickly to stop that from happening again.BASE RAPING / VEHICLE STEALING
|9.3||Fraggnation setup VS Battlelog Setup:|
There are two ways that teams may request the setup of the battles:
1. Fraggednation: The FN way to setup the server is to have a burn round before the actual round of match play. This allows all 24 players to be in game, warm up and ready for the match to begin. So when the real round starts all 24 players should be in game and ready to play. The Burn round does not count in match play. Just to get your team and squads organized for the map. The server owned MUST make the other teams captain an admin to be in control of his side of the team. So he will be responsible to boot unwanted players of his own team.
2. Battlelog: Teams may request setup through battlelog. Using the BL roster must coincide with your FN roster or you will be in violation. Only FN roster members may participate in match play. You are not required to make any captain an admin as it will only allow invited members to participate in the match. It also already has a 15 min warmup grace period in which everyone has to click ready for the match to start.
Initial Round Start & Missing Players:
When starting a round all players must check to make sure that both teams have the required number of players. If players are missing at the start then you MUST STAY AT YOUR BASE until the remaining spots are filled with eligible players.
If after being notified about player missing, before any kills has been made and the team hosting the map refuses to reset the server they will forfeit that map.
Additionally, it is your responsibly to notify the other team about your team missing a player. Failure to do that before any kills has been made will result in this rule not being enforced
To eliminate this problem, when playing on a ranked server a TDM burn round should be played as a warmup and to also ensure all players are in game and ready fot match play to begin. Remember the TDM does not count it is just a burn round to get everyone in game and ready so when the next map starts and match begins there is no need to wait to start as everyone should be ready to go.
Substitutions and Ineligibility:
The substitution of players during a match is ALLOWED on this ladder. Due to connection issues and that this is a game and people have other things going on. A player maybe be subbed out during a map or throughout the maps and the match. Players ONLY eligible on the current FN ROSTER may be subbed in at any time. Only one ineligible player may be subbed in and used that is not on your current roster.
When creating a challenge your roster will be locked as soon as you send the challenge. Meaning anyone on your roster at the time of the challenge sent will be eligible for play. Anyone who joins your roster afterwards is not eligible.
When accepting a challenge your roster will be locked as soon as you accept the challenge. Meaning anyone on your roster at the time of accepting the challenge will be eligible for play. Anyone who joins your roster afterwards is not eligible.
