@Tolean Shotgun barley plays and lost his master tag icon due to inactivity. He hasn't won a single tournament in years and hasnt played in any master tag challenges despite having master tag status for months. Is any of this his fault? No.

I don't doubt Shotgun is one of the best on the server. But is he "the greatest ever," I think not.
"Legendary" status was given to swift and "master" status was given to 8 other players at the start of the series. Shotgun has months and months to challenge swift to obtain Legend status and he never did.
He is welcome to go thru to conventional means of obtaining it like everyone else.
that makes sense. is/should getting grandmaster be required to challenge legend? like master > grandmaster > legend

was also kind of thinking that legend was swift's honorary tag in recognition of achievements, is it part of the challenge system now? (kind of like how he says master tag was originally just for him and later got appropriated for other stuff haha)

Legend is a little more skewed.

http://forum.war2.ru/index.php/topic,2949.0.html

Nobody has ever shown any interest in challenging swift or the legend tag for that matter. If someone really was interested in it I wouldn't be against giving them a way to obtain it.
I do like that idea of master<grandmaster<legend

I'll be interested in the legend / grandmaster tag if its fixed on the speed I play, even faster. If my opponent is allowed to pick maps on fastest speed I don't have any chance.

I never considered Legend tag because I thought Swift would just have all the settings in fastest.

I accept.

Maps:
1) HSC classic high
2) Four Corners high
3) X marks high
4) World Domination BNE high
5) GoW old ef high
6) PoS BNE low
7) GSEPS high

Kagan you can suggest maps and I'll replace. I'd like to play x marks but it will be difficult if theres someone who wants to stream. I'm tired n' going to bed right now. I'll tell tomorrow the times/days I can play at.

Good choise)
We can play xmarks with streamer. Propose to change hsc bne to xmarks. But its not ladder map. We can also play "The River Kwai". Its pretty intereting duel map.

The problem with Xmark is that on high resources the map is very unbalanced, the left spot is very favored: it has bigger island and shore is closer to center.
On default/low res I would still favor left spot for the late game but it is much more balanced by the fact that you don't get to do the 3 shipyard juggs rush right away.
Making having exposed main base less of a problem.

For casting I think there is an obs version of the map out there but that would mean fixed order which means you would have to roll the dice on who starts left/right. In any case if you record all games with insight it would do the job fine we can always cast the games on stream after they are played if you keep the outcome a secret that way we are still discovering the outcomes "live" ;-).

Il brought over (from vpn) / created the master tag for me exclusively, then burnt fought reluctantly to change that.

Tora gave me legend tag with intention that it was undisputed / exclusive, and quickly changed his stance when his initial intention met criticism / resistance from a few people.

luckily, my heart can only be broken once!

It is true you have that possibility but really it is not worth hoping in the first place most of the time.
You do get quicker on the islands but you don't have the time to build a barrack and cat on the island quick enough for it to make a difference as your opponent with 1 cat and a transport will manage to get you off pretty easily.
Hoping is much more risky than you'd think. plus if you fail to secure both island you still have the disadvantage of having a very exposed main base from water.
