All players must be RCTA members. This is a ranking system and players try to move up the ladder by challenging higher-ranked players to a match. If the challenger wins the match, he or she moves up to that spot and everyone in between slides back one spot. If the challenger loses the match, everyone stays where they were. Players may challenge anyone up to 20 places higher (exception: those ranked 95 or lower may challenge anyone ranked 76 or lower). New players may make their first challenge as high as they like. Win and they move to that position. Lose and they must start at the bottom and work their way up;
