FFA ladder Grand Opening! is proud to announce that it will start hosting its official FFA ladder on Saturday March 12th.

After some delays on the FFArena project, the issues have been resolved and a new management team has been set up! Due to the need of having a large player pool for the games to start, FFA shows some technical specificities.

- It is hosted crossrealm (w3arena,, + some others pvpgn)

- You can by definition run into hackers from other realms, or other kind of unsportsmanship conducts like "preteaming" (joining games together in order to take out everybody else). These will have to be reported on the FFA forum

- Winner detection is glitching if you kill your last opponent by razing all his buildings. Report those on the forum as well, and an admin will correct the result.

For those who used to play it, the system is based on the playFFA ladder's one.

The ladder will be organized in seasons that lasts about 3 months. Season 1 starts on Saturday : Good Luck!

Kinda sucks its cross realm , but its better then nothing , I hope in future it can turn into w3arena only as bnet ffa is full of hacks.

Cross realm makes it so the activity is there and games will always fill. It also adds diversity to the competition. If you run into hackers, you can report them on the forum. Another important note to add to Ugri's details: The ladder is anonymous! This is a great feature where your account name will be hidden as everyone will come into the game on an even playing field. Also, the current game hosted can always be found at This feature will also probably be on w3arena homepage as well. This way you can copy and paste the game name from any server.

@misterjazavac: Fair comment, though I think if you take a look at FFA, you may find a game type and community that is great. You can check out the FFA Masters League at There will also be plenty of streamers and competitors for FFArena's first season.

Nooooooooooooooo ! Whyyyyy ??? Why did you come back Ugri ? Almost one year of nothing and now this - I guess it's all your fault ! Anyway, I hope I'll meet friends of the old days again (well, mostly haters, <3 u) and looking forward to play crazy maps again (kind of missed them) ! And telling the truth: I really respect the work, thanks to W3Arena and Ugri (feel my love :D), I hope for you the new season will be as successful as playFFA was. The current (fucked up) scores will be reseted right ?! - with love, GoodBeast's child (as Ugri once said) ;)

Aha Paul nice to hear from you. Yes, full reset on Saturday, all should be cleaned up when Germany wakes up. I needed a full week to really start a ladder in good conditions (configuration, administration, merging to new realms)! hype hype hype!

My days are off while on vacation, thought this started like a week ago. Cool stuff I'm excited.

Comment #23Sat Mar 12, 2016 20:31 pm
wait so your saying if i search ffa on east it will match wc3arena players?
Comment #24Sat Mar 12, 2016 20:35 pm
I checked and there is no ffa option in the pg menu , So I guess the win/lose counts from the CG game and they don't add to your w3arena profile stats. So same custom game gets hosted in bnet + + w3arena and we get to play with them.

Is this option still available? How does one play a FFA game?
