  • A calendar would be cool
  • Some additional background info on the leagues (maybe some lore) to make the descriptions more interesting and less repetitive to read, currently its just a pure knowledge dump.
  • Add more links.

The leagues and ladders of Darkwind are the ultimate way to compete and test your skills, afterall anyone can get lucky and win a single event, but only the most persistant and skilled players can prevail and rise to the top of the leagues!

League winners recieve a fair amount of cash, quite a bit of fame and of course bragging rights.

The current league title holders can display their league badge on their car in events. (this is done from under My Gang -> Edit Settings -> Decal to use on your cars in town events)

Somerset four-monthly Leagues

These are the main Somerset Race, Death Race and Combat leagues, league events spawn every 15 minutes (with 45 minutes between each event of the same type) the events can only take place on tracks in somerset and all use some stock cars. Your average score of all the events in this league is kept on 01:00 AM Sundays GMT. The leagues each lasts for three weeks or three darkwind months.

Ladders

The Evan Race, Death Race and Combat Ladders run for 12 weeks. Events are 1v1 player custom events where the challenger can choose the track (or arena for combats) and stock cars to use. The challengee can then choose to either accept or deny the challenge. In each ladder match the winner takes a certain amount of points from the loser depending on the difference in their current ladder scores. If a high-ranked player defeats a lower ranked player then they would get less points than the lower ranked player would if they had how.
