One of the main complaints from players was there was no ladder system in Diablo 3 like there is in Diablo 2. While there is no way to replicate the Diablo 2 season system directly in Diablo 3, Diablo3ladders.com is a fun way for players to progress against other players in a timed season.
A softcore and hardcore ladder will run over seasons and the winner is the person who reaches the top at the end of the season. The season will then conclude and a new season will begin.
Yes you can join both if you want. As long as you have a level one character of each type and join the ladder before it begins you can take part.
Whilst we'd very much like to use your juicy uniques, our ladder system uses Blizzard's API and does not and cannot write to your character files that are stored on Blizzard's server's. You can continue to play normally after the ladder you've joined has finished. Your gear is your own.
Due to the fact we can't reset gear at the end of a season as that is stored on Blizzard's servers there is no way around this. However, it is not cheating if you use gear you have stored up because every other player taking part can also do the same.
You will be given a special award icon for your profile which will show you have won a particular season's ladder. These will stay in your profile forever to show that you are a mighty warrior.
We only use Blizzards official API's, we don't and can't alter them in any way. We build a service layer on top of the API (for rankings etc) whilst honouring Blizzard's T&C of their API.
Yes, you can create your own group for select friends of groups. Go to the Groups ladders page
and create a group of your own. You must have a site account and BattleTag assigned to your account before you can do this.
Yes you have complete control as the admin of your group.
They would 'join the group' and as the group admin you can either accept or reject them from your group.
Yes, you can assign a member of your group as a moderator who will then be able to help you accept or decline players for your group.
Why of course! We've added a filter system to allow you to remove any heroes you don't want to show. This allows you to have your own personal races with friends or compare stats or do what ever you please!
Yes we do. Check the Global Stats link
in the navigation. Although at the moment we're trying to get permission from Blizzard to scan more than the normal 10k allowance.
Yes in your character sheets you can click links to all the stats in the left navigation, this will show where you are in global rankings compared to other players.
We can help, just contact email@example.com
EHP or Effective Hit Points or Effective Health Pool shows you how you benefit from the statistics attached to your items and skills. How much damage can you receive before you die.
This is actually being investigated to make sure but the remainding % is your base stats. Many lives were lost to bring you this information *RIP*
DPS is worked out from your weapon, hero and item stats. It does not count skill buffs or passives which is why it is labelled "unbufffed"
The value we use is "Unbuffed" so any bonuses you get from your skills aren't counted.
In Diablo3 your damage is calculated off of your main weapon, so we do the same! Your final DPS is counted as your main weapons damage but the percentages are what we've worked out to be that items contribution towards the final DPS.
Your DPS is calculated using the in-game formulas as extracted from the game files. Other sitesmay not use this method so stats may differe slight. becuase it is unboffed, it will differ slightly from Blizzard's armory. If you still think it;s wrong, let us know by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org with your BattleTag, link to hero page and what you think it should be.
Heroscore is an experimental value system to calculate the different elements of your hero.
Not as much of a question but rather a statement but yes, currently the formula used is less scientific and more guestimation using all the stats your hero currently has. If you have a great way to calculate this please let me know via email email@example.com
