    Season 2 is an experiment with relatively low cash prizes as we continue to improve the 1v1 matchmaker and expand the active player base across all leagues.

    Many of our planned changes are waiting for the transition to PAnet which is the highest priority for the overall PA community. The move to modern servers with more regions will benefit everyone including 1v1 ranked.

    We are looking at changing the number of games required to 10 and ladder decay is still in testing.

    For season 2 we are monitoring the use of smurfs and player behaviour. That may result in some changes, some warnings, some season bans and in at least one case a permanent ban (one has already been applied).

    To report an individual player please use: https://support.planetaryannihilation.com/

    We also recommend that you continue to post well thought out constructive feedback in these forums for everyone to read (and Google to index). Chat / discord is easily lost in the history.

    Kudos for the quick response! When can we expect crystallized rules?

    We strongly recommend you play on your own main account, be respectful in chat and avoid impersonating other players. Playing on another players account will most likely result in a ban.

    The next PTE will have a new leaderboard which shows the full ladder with ratings and games played :)

    can you first fix Bulkhead, or like, remove it? missing 2 mex behind one of the platforms, also platform height breaks air movement radically, and the map is incredibly snowbally as a result of the limited safe mex -> sniping fabs and setting trees on fire ends it quite early on

    I think bulkhead needs more starting mex otherwise the snowball is super strong since there are basically 3 routes to attack. It's probably my least favorite map right now.

    I submitted a fix earlier which hopefully will get added in asap.
    As for overall design, maps may be slightly tweaked at the mid-season point addressing gameplay concerns.

    Ice planet with the ramps. Dont know the name. Planes dont like the ramps. Also are some planets higher than others. Bombs drop and blow at close to same time.

    Think the ramp gameplay is pretty lame and overdone. Units missing shots and units getting stuck in cgis is not nice gameplay in my opinion.

    Can those be filed in sooner? Maybe make individual threads for every map with a model of requesting changes, i.e. picture, explanation of problem, proposed solution, etc

    Changes to maps during a competitive season that aren't bugfixes are incredibly unlikely. There's money at stake, and changes to maps could influence outcomes. If changes were to occur it wouldn't be before the mid-season point, and even then I suspect it's unlikely.

    We have expanded the participation prizes to include the three most active players in each of the five leagues for a total prize pool of US$4,500 this season.

    How about changing the ranked ladder from 1v1 to 2v2 for one season? Or anyother fresh things for the ladder?

    Leaderboard has made it pretty fresh. Every balance change also freshens up the ladder. League of legends has a new patch every 2 weeks, making different champions op and nerfing some.

    I'd be happy to just nerf the bejaysus out of air for a couple of weeks. Then crawl them back a bit and buff the bejaysus out of orbital. Let orbital fabber build t2 mex and stuff on land.

    Why not? Just changing a few numbers. Easy to change back and fine tune all whole freshing the game up a little. If we know the balance is tweaked every two weeks or so there wouldnt be much resistence.

    Mid-season balance changes on 2019-03-08 00:00 UTC are going to improve the ground push against air dominance.

    For season 3 we are working on full 1v1 ranked game history (including map name, opening build summary, etc) with support for progress stats and clan rankings.

    I would really appreciate if you could fix mines not going off when locust go over them for mid-season balance patch.

    disagree with that one, locusts should die to mines as much as any other landunit, that includes drifters and kaijus aswell ..
