It seems as if fan sites will be proided with a ladder, so web masters don't fret over the prices of buying ladder scripts. Here a quote from H. Bonin, the producer of Generals:
Actually, what we've confirmed is that we will provide a "ladder kit" that will enable individuals (fansites, gaming rooms, players in general) to set up their own personal ladders. We'll provide the ladder...err...author...to enable various rules, passwords, options, etc. They'll also get to include anyone - even if its just for their closest friends. We're currently implementing the ladder kit so their will be more news to come in the near future.
