Following on the success of last month's ladder, the league has added over 150 new members; 195 sanctioned games were recorded over 6 weeks! Over this time, the first three official online tournaments in the game's history occurred, and were attended by a total of 18 players.
The monthly ladder finished with the Hoth region dominating in First Place gain TrooperShark99's 78pts; cclarkso of Coruscant (and the game's first online Standard format tournament winner) took second place (70pts), while Corulag's, F0NK (65pts), secured third; the other top ten players (and their regions) out of the 59 players who participated were KingLouisIX (58pts-Corellia), egonolsen (36pts-Ralltiir), iownyou06 (33pts-Bespin), Death Star and Wolan (31pts-Ralltiir and Balmorra), and Dalton and DarthCrusher (30pts-Coruscant and Hoth).
In international play averages (based on a country's top three players, which is also the current minimum required to be ranked), Canada sits at the top of the mountain with 75 points followed by the United States with 64pts; Deutschland (33.3pts) is in third with Polska (29pts) and Australia (21pts) rounding out the rest of the top five. Newcomers to the active international community this month include België, Hrvatska (Croatia), Yisra'el, Italia, Magyarország (Hungary), the Nederland, and the United Kingdom.
Managing the online league is a tremendous experience and I appreciate each and every player who participates in online play, and especially this league! I look forward to meeting even more of you (either in the Holotable lobby or elsewhere) and bringing lots of cool prizes and even more online competitions to everyone!
