Premium Memberships
What is a premium membership?

Premium memberships are optional enhancements to your existing League account. By purchasing a premium membership, you help support the League and keep it free for everyone. Our premium membership program offers three levels of membership, including Gold, Platinum, and Diamond (in ascending order of value). Features include a match history, extra LadderBux for a top tournament finish, immunity from being purged from the League for inactivity, and many more! Premium members receive priority support. This means that we always answer mail from premium members FIRST before any others, so you get answers to your questions and problems faster than non-members. Visit to find out more about premium memberships and for a full list of features.

Can I order a premium membership over the telephone?

You may order premium memberships via telephone by contacting our billing office at (360) 419-7165 between 6 AM and 5 PM Pacific time.

Can I purchase a premium membership for a friend?

The person purchasing the membership does not need to be the person participating on the Ladder or League. Many people purchase memberships for friends or have another person pay for the membership. On the page that asks for the player name, enter the user name of the account on which the membership should be activated. On the payment pages, the information entered must be that of the person actually making the purchase. You may also want to view our Gift Membership program that allows you to send a personalized Case's Ladder E-Card with your purchase!

You can purchase a Gold Membership, Yearly Platinum Membership, Six Month Diamond Membership or a Yearly Diamond Membership using our postal mail option. We can accept a personal check, a check linked to your credit card, or a money order in USD. It usually only takes about 10 business days from the time you mail it for the membership to be activated, depending on where you live. (We are sorry, but we cannot accept monthly payments using the postal mail option.) When sending your order be sure to include your user name and the League or Ladder on which you play!

I purchased a premium membership and I have my receipt. Why doesn't it show on my account?

If you have a receipt with the transaction number for your purchase but do not see the membership on your account, this usually indicates that there was a problem activating the membership. We can activate this membership on your behalf. Please use the Premium Support link located on the sub-menu of the Support tab to provide your purchase information.

The "Gold Membership Transfer" tool is located in the "My Options" section on the MyAccount tab. You must be logged in to view "My Options".

In the last field, enter the reason you wish to move your membership. Click "Transfer Membership". If all is successful you will be provided a link to the new Ladder or League!

Memberships cannot be transferred to a family member or friend.

I'm a Gold member. Do I get a discount if I upgrade to Platinum or Diamond?

Gold members who wish to upgrade to Platinum membership receive a discount! You can upgrade to a monthly Platinum for just $9.95 per month and avoid the initial $24.95 activation fee.

When you cancel a monthly Platinum or Diamond Membership your account will downgrade to Gold for six months at no additional charge to you so your Gold is not lost.

Can I add more Leagues to my premium membership?

A Gold membership is applicable to only one League or Ladder. Platinum members may have up to FIVE Ladders covered by their membership and Diamond members may have up to TEN Ladders. If you are a monthly subscriber, you are allowed to add one Ladder or MyLeague account to your Platinum or Diamond Membership every 30 days. You have 2 accounts available to use the first month and you will be able to add a third account after 60 days, then you can add another account every 30 days. Members who upgrade to a monthly Diamond subscription from a yearly Platinum membership will have immediate access to all ten ladders. If you cancel before your original Platinum year expires, then up to five accounts will revert to Platinum.

How do I add other Leagues to my Platinum or Diamond membership?

When you first join the Platinum or Diamond membership program, only the account that was selected during the online process (or indicated on the mail-in form) are upgraded. This is because we don't know which of your other accounts that you might want to add to your membership. It is necessary for you to "turn on" Platinum or Diamond on your other accounts manually. To add new Leagues, go to a Ladder or League on which you are currently a Platinum or Diamond member. After logging into your account, go to the "MyAccout" tab and then click on "Add League" listed under "My Options". At the top of the "Platinum/Diamond Membership" screen it is indicated how many accounts you are eligible for and how long you must wait to add more. You must be a member on the Ladder or League to which you want to add your Platinum or Diamond Membership, and the E-mail address must match that of your Platinum or Diamond account. This is so we can be sure it is your account. Please note that your user name does not have to match. Please be aware this only applies to accounts which are yours and is intended for people who are participating on several ladders. (You cannot apply your Diamond Membership to accounts of your family or friends.)

Can I add a friend or relative to my Platinum or Diamond membership?
