I disagree he gets to keep it for 1 year. Its been well over 1 year not to mention he plays extremely sporadically.

Who is the current world champ? Hate to give it someone without winning a tournament where all the best players got to play. At least player a chance to defend his title before taking it away.

Would be cool to see a sticky with one post showing g the current holders of any title with their record (total challenges played and/or defended). Have their names hyperlinked to their videos.

We currently have a "grand master" tag and a "warlord" icon which are both representative of the best players on the server. The "world champ" icon was meant to be representative of the winner of the yearly war2 festival. Since we haven't had a war2 festival in over 2 years it has been temporarily retired until further notice.

it says "15" on it, aka the winner of the 2015 war2 festival. That doesn't change, he's always going to be the one who won that tourney, why take away a tourney-specific icon? He also made that icon specifically for that tourney, it seems wrong for us to randomly appropriate it for our own purposes. if we want some special icon that gets awarded for 1 year only we can just make a new one (or in this case just make a new icon w/ the new year each time)

Yeah I'm with Mousey.  It doesn't indicate he's the world champion of Warcraft II, it indicates he won the 2015 championship which will be true forever :)

I think too many icons definitely lose the prestige associated with having one. Chop champ pball champ ao champ master grandmaster world champion warlord

Lets get rid of sware and profi!

I don't really care about it. I think profi and shareware icons are a more important issue.

Why don't you like those?  They're not unique so it doesn't really water down the special icon meaningfulness

We give profi for 1000 wins.  I think it means Pro
Sware we give for even more wins but it really just means S(hare)ware
