As a lurker who 1) loves high quality War2 games and 2) enjoys seeing the competition to be the best, I propose the creation of a Grand Master tag, to help motivate the best to play each other more.

- Only 1 Grand Master tag
- Only those with Master tags are allowed to challenge the Grand Master for his tag
- If Grand Master loses, he still keeps Master tag
- Enhanced winnings for successful Grand Master defense
- Grand Masters don't have to accept all challenges but must accept at least 1 every 2-3 weeks, prioritizing those who he hasn't recently defended against
- Give it to Swag first cause he has the most successful Master tag defenses (earned it) and also because he's my favorite to watch <3

All assuming Tora's down for it of course.  But as an avid spectator of pro games I would get super hyped for this!

"Legend"  is grand master. Swift has it currently.

Good call out, Ryzel. I agree with you.  Grand Master has a better ring to it and also aligns better to the existing Master status challenges by being an elevated status to Master. Legend, while a solid designator, doesn't imply the whole story.

Oooh, thanks Tora.  That legend thing seems basically what I was talking about.  I wonder why no one seems to have challenged him?  I know these pros have big egos so maybe the risk of losing on stream isn't worth a potential $25. 

Maybe as added incentive make it so there's only one Legend at a time and the challenger can steal the tag?  Or maybe offer guaranteed $5 even if you lose?  Just throwing out ideas.

What if there is still 1 grandmaster tag for other masters to compete over, which is like a level below the legend icon? If swift is so pro that no one else will challenge him then it isn't useful to try and include him in this icon/challenge system. But given that he is so pro, could still give him some honorary icon for it. Wasn't the master tag originally a special tag made just for swift or something?

Apparently when RU started it was a tag some old admin asked swift to 1s the best russian players with the prize being the master tag. I dont know all the details since I wasn't around but yeah I am warming up to the idea of 1 "grand master" for all the masters to compete over.

Can I get you to make an awesome grand master icon mousey?

Great idea on the grandmaster tag. I think the settings should chosen from a predetermined list of many puds and resources on shuffle even after the first GM is crowned. A GM should be versatile. For fairness, a third-party like an admin can do the shuffling and announcing of the next settings. Maybe the entire shuffled list is released prior to Game 1. It should be a very long series even if it takes a few sessions, something like best of 15 must win by 2. GMs and challengers should be active enough to handle the longer series length. Bo15 is still short enough to have some starting spot variance which creates interest and more dethroning.

These players are a little more active than what you are suggesting. They don't control who challenges them. They'll be active enough to compete for the first GM tag when the time comes.
