I am looking to have a beautiful website designed and coded for a gaming ladder. It will need to be integrated into a CMS for easy page creation and posting.
The home page will be the basic layout with a main section for posting articles, news, updates, etc.
There will need to be custom sign up forms for Players & Teams. Management tools integrated into player/team logins to perform various tasks such as assigning a Player role on a team, inviting new players, updating an about section, team website, removing players, etc.
Other general site functions will need to be to invite teams to a match, report a loss, search function to search for individual player and team accounts.
On the ladder pages for indivdual games/divisions functions will include recording the top 10 win streaks, most wins for Monthly, yearly, and all time. Function to display the top 10 current ranked opponents, to view all opponents organized by rankings(25-50 listings per page).
Premium features unlockabale for accounts.
Administrative backend will need functions to be able to change team names, manually edit every feature of the ladder such as reversing wins/losses, changing scores for individual matches, changing the ranking of a current team, locking/suspending a team preventing them from participating in the ladder. Temporary & permananent IP bans. Tools to search/automatically detect & prevent multiple accounts from the same IP. Various other features.
Forum integration will need to be done as well to integrate a forum into the design. The ladders accounts do not have to be linked together with the forum account, however that would be a bonus if it is an easy implementation.
I do not require that everything be custom built from the ground up, so if there are readily available scripts, modules, plugins, etc. that will accomplish certain functions and reduce the cost and workload, then I would prefer to use those as long as they are secure and/or regularly maintained.
An example of similar ladder/league systems can be viewed at archive.org so you can get a basic idea of what the functionality will need to be:
I will only work with freelancers or companies who's primary language is English since I have had poor experiences in the past due to language barriers and not understanding each other. It is also a major bonus if you are familiar with the gaming industry or have past experience with how these sites should work.
