Ladder optimization

The ladder has been rewritten, and should be much, much faster now.

Sadly, this means the ladder's been reset again. I was going to convert the old database over, but no one could log in during the conversion (which could have taken days), so this was the only way to do it. Sorry.

Uh... look, a distraction! We've redesigned the Hangman system and I think it looks nicer this way. :)

OU: Shadow Tag and Mega Sableye

OU is currently suspect testing Shadow Tag and Sablenite. Shadow Tag is suspected, as it disallows switching, while Mega Sableye causes setting up hazards to be very difficult. To vote, a battler needs to acquire 2700 COIL within 75 games limit on a suspect ladder or get to top 4 in a suspect tournament. On a suspect ladder Sablenite is banned, but not Shadow Tag, in order to check if Shadow Tag is still an issue without Mega Sableye. Have fun laddering.
