Answers

  1. What is Boise Top of the Trees?

    • Boise Top of the Trees (TOT) is a new kind of league. It's a league where you get to play WHATEVER game you want, WHEREVER you want, and at YOUR convenience!
    • TOT is a challenge ladder league where you get to work your way to the top by challenging opponents above you. Here's a quick run-down of how it works:
      • First get yourself on the list!
      • Then you can challenge up the ladder 3 spots at a time - win your match then challenge up again!
      • The challenger gets to pick the game, virtually ANY game (See allowed games for FargoRated matches), and your opponent picks the location.
    • That's right - in TOT you get to choose the game you want to play, the location to play it, and when to play!

  6. How do I submit my matches to FargoRate?
    • Currently, FargoRate match submission is done independtly from TOT.
    • This is done through a 3rd party app called Salotto.
      • What is Salotto?
        • Salotto is an app that allows people to find games with random players anywhere in the country.
        • It was started four years ago and two years ago they were allowed to report their games to FargoRate.
        • This was possible due to certain requirements their app met.
      • What do I need to do to use Salotto
        • Visit Salotto.app for more information or download the app from your phone's app store.
