Hi folks, maybe you noticed the current hype. And what the hell is a hype if nobody follows?. We do follow. Splatterladder is starting to use https encryption. During the next weeks, successive each SL section will be available over the https-protocol.
If you're using our server monitor, mumble-viewer or the signature, you can switch to https also. (Maybe you noticed, that http-content included on https-sites causes a warning in the browsers address bar).
Hi folks, tomorrow, 26th feb., all our services will be down for server maintenance. (This includes wolffiles.de and etkey.org)

Hopefully the downtime will only be short (keep the finger crossed)
Splatterladder is proud to present the first sl.cup sponsored by Splatterladder Hosting
Grab your weapons, sort your teams, get ready for som scrim action and lets make this tourney a big success for everyone. We will offer the servers to play the matches and we will watch some of the matches live
The 3 top placed teams will win an Enemy Territory gameserver sponsored by Splatterladder Hosting, see the details as follows.
1. price 6 months ET gameserver with 32 slots 2. price 6 months ET gameserver with 24 slots 3. price 6 months ET gameserver with 16 slots
Both the matchserver and the gameserver you can win are hosted in germany, europe.
Depending on how many teams enlist for the tournament, we will play a pre-round to find the top 8 or top 16 teams. If less than 8 teams enlist we reserve the right to cancel the tournament, but we hope this will not happen.
In the pre-round each team plays against 2 teams. Maps will be played in stopwatch mode. The Team that wins a map the shortest time earns 1 point. If no Team winds the map it counts 0.5 points for each Team.
During pre-round and elimination round each Team will choose 1 map out of the mappool.
So after the pre-round the teams with the most points earned will advance to elimination round. In elimination round again each pair of teams will be randomly chosen by splatterladder.
But now a match is counted best of 3. that means every Team need to play 3 maps 2 times vs. another Team. One map chosen by each team and one map chosen by splatterladder. Best 4 or 8 advance to stage (semi-final or quarter-final). After the needed rounds we will have a final for 3rd and a final for 1st place.
Every Clan may enlist 1 or 2 Teams for the Tournament. We decided to limit the number of Teams per Clan to avoid having 1 big Clan winning all sponsored servers. But you dont need to be in a clan to play in the Tournament, you can also build a Team with your friends.
The Matchservers will be set up to 8 slots +1 private, so every Team has 3 players, plus 2 slot for shoutcasters. The matches will also be available on ETTV.
Every Player of every Team will need to record demo of the game so if there are any complaints during or after the match we will review the demos of the match and take necessary action. Also a screenshot after each map need to be saved by each team. If a member of a Team dont show up at the set date and time, the Team has the chance to play 2vs3 or 1vs3, if a Team dont show up the Opponent has won.
Registration is open from today, 11th of February 2015 until the 31st of March 2015.
Pre-round matches will be played from 6th of Avril till 19th of Avril, that gives everyone the chance to find a date for the matches. Elimination Round starts from 20th till 26th of Avril, the semi-finals from 27th till 30th of Avril, the battle for 3rd on the 1st of May and the final will be played on the 2nd of May.
If you have any questions, ask them now!
Splatterladder reserves the right to exclude Teams or Teammembers for every reason. This will not be a greencard for us but will give us the right to handle the Tournament a fair way. So to make this Tournament a as fair as possible event for each and every combatant, we will exclude every cheater from it. If one player of a Team is caught, the whole Team will be excluded. We will have zero tolerance in this case.
Since this is the first time that we arrange a Tournament, there may be many things that dont work perfect. Also we dont know if we have to plan for 4 or 40 Teams to participate. We kindly ask everyone who plays in the Tourney for their feedback during and after the event so we can improve things if we ever plan to do another one in the future.
ATTENTION: The Tournament will be hosted with 16 Teams participating. If you are too late and register at challonge as Team number 17 or later, you are not participating in the Tournament! So move quick if you want to take part.

SPLATTERLADDER HOSTING - a new service from splatterladder.com
The brain behind splatterladder has brought a new idea to life to contribute a very easy, very affordable possibility for everyone to host an own Enemy Territory Gameserver for a ridiculous low price of 6.40 EUR per month on a gentlemens agreement base for a 32 slot Gameserver.
I repeat that for you to assure you have read right: 32 slot ET Gameserver for 6.40 EUR per month!
HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE? The one or other of you might ask.
It is possible because we see this as a service for and to the community, not a way to start earning money. The calculation is quite simple: A suitable Root-Server would cost about 70 Euro / month + round about 100 Euro setup fee (Intel® Xeon® E3-1270 v3 + 32GB ECC Ram + 2TB HDD [raid1] + 20TB free traffic @ 1Gbit/s [they assure at least 200Mbit / s] , after 20TB the speed will be lowered for the remaining days of the month.) This configuration should be suitable for round about 12 - 15 gameserver with 32 slots each. Lets do an example with 12 Gameservers: 12 x 6.40 = 76.80 EUR per month. That means the setup fee will automatically be paid after 15 months of continous rental from the serverhost (6.80 x 15 = 102 EUR).
WHAT DO I GET FOR MY MONEY? This is also a good question.
We can´t deliver 24/7 support or any fast response if there occurs a problem. What we can do is offer you a pretty nice and easy to understand Gameserverpanel with ftp support to upload your files. You may ofc. use any other ftp client. Within the Game Manager you have the chance to fast start / stop / restart the server, watch a basic Game-Monitor and we guarantee daily backups of your server.
WHAT IS THIS GENTLEMENS AGREEMENT THING?
We dont want to bind you with a long term contract or a big payment in advance, so we thought the best way for anyone to try it out would be to pay on a monthly base. If too many people try the service and cancel after one month we will have to pay the due for the rented Server, so we would like to see you keep it longer than one month only To be honest, we do not believe that you will cancel it, after you have tested it.
WHAT MODS CAN I USE?
We have preinstalled the following mods as templates so all you have to do is choose a mod, upload your files, edit the server.cfg and mod.cfg and then start your server. etjump, etlegacy *, etnam *, etpro, etpub *, jaymod *, nitmod *, noquarter *, silentmod *, tjmod (* = Omni-Bot enabled) If you like to take a peak to the Game Server Panel we have installed, try: https://splatterladder.com/server with the logindetails: testuser - testuser
Time has come to announce the next step in splatterladder history: Multi-Game-Support.
splatterladder.com - your first source for playertracking and ranking is expanding with a lot of games to reach a new audience step-by-step.
As you have already seen on splatterladder.com the first new added game is "io Urban Terror". But this has only been the very beginning of what is going to happen throughout the next weeks on splatterladder.com
The first games to be added beside rtcw/et and new added ioUrban Terror will be Call of Duty 1, 2 and 4 together with Quake3 (io Quake).
Ofcourse every added game will receive the same splatterladder features that you all know and love from RtCW and Enemy Territory:
playertracking with rating (ratingfunctions may vary to the ET implemented rating)
... and so on.
If you want to take the chance to participate in these new sl.games with player- or serveradminsupport feel free to get in touch with us. More new games will be announced after they are implemented in a beta state.
Now you`re able to use splatterladder generated data for ...your homepage ...your very own statistic tool or whatever you want to.
This API offers you the possibility to query the data from up to 10 server listed on SL in XML or JSON format.
The answer contains almost all data visible on the server-detail site. For example current players (with ping, xp), all the server flags (punkbuster, tzac, friendly fire and so on)
Hot it works: The basepath to the API is et.splatterladder.com/api/squery.php where you have to add the variables you need: format -> xml or json svid -> Splatterladder server ID svadd -> Serveradress (IP:PORT) If you want to query multiple server-ids or adresses, use the variables as array ( svadd=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:yyyyy )
So if you want to get the data of the server with the id "658158" , the one behind "22.214.171.124:27960" and "126.96.36.199:31111" on JSON format, simply create the URI by concating the variables: et.splatterladder.com/api/squery.php?format=json&svid=658158&svadd=188.8.131.52:27960&svadd=184.108.40.206:31111
You will receive the full JSON object, with a section of , IMO, useful hints.
