What do they mean anyway?  (Profi/sware)

This is exactly what I don't like about them.

We can get something new in a matter of days but we are still using shareware icon to represent 3000 wins.

I liked the idea awhile back for different unit pictures to represent win stages, would have to have someone monitering stats frequently.

Really though I think the flags were best and need to be brought back. I think when a foreign newbie sees someone from the same country as him they can get help or brought up to speed on some things much quicker or find other newbies or friends around them.

Bring back the flags!

The war2 community would like to see a decisive victory to prove it.

Lol, unfortunately top players generally play for their own amusement. Not for the amusement of the war2 community.
However I can say with near certainty swift can't beat Swagier in a traditional bo11 KOTH.

hey, these two inactive players really struggle to play up to 21 games over the course of several sessions. i totally get it. i mean, such a series could take an entire year to complete. deciding which player is the absolute best of an entire era? let's keep it short and sweet. this ensures any starting spot luck is completely neutralized. it'll be much more exciting this way, like flipping a coin. all in the name of war2 community amusement.

here comes the big surprise. if you want to have any sense of real confidence as to who the absolute best player of an era is, extend the series.

but hey, you're near certain in a i don't believe in distribution laws kind of way. so, let's continue dismissing thoughtful ideas and add lol to the front of responses instead.

Tora is probably trying to troll swift into firing up his War2 and getting into playing shape

No its fact.

u8 plays consistently against top players on many different maps.

 http://ladder.war2.ru/player.php?player=u8t3io3p

Swift mainly plays garden of war is never consistent.

http://ladder.war2.ru/player.php?offset=0&player=dragon-killer-2

Same could be said for a top player like Jesk.

@Nedro I already threw out a $50 prize and I attempted to set up days and times for both u8 and swift to play.

I don't see a series materializing for various reasons.

Spots inbalance... So lets play arena? It will be fair... Only gow is rlly inbalance, rest are fine and we wont end game when some1 took 20k and another 5k cause spots


U should care about you and your decision, u forgot about your own tour, nice org!

Swift said few days ago he need play a bit, i  am waiting for him, but if we will play 1 game 30 mins i wont play more than 8 games (4h)

There isn't anything compelling about this match to me as of yet. Nobody with an opinion that matters thinks U8 will win.

It's the same story line as before.  I'm inactive/inconsistent, and then someone gets good, or a former good player gets unrusty and then a few people start to wonder if that person can beat me. U8 is just the next Scrubbo/Poscow. I got called out by them, and I unrusted to play them and they both lost decisively  - and they were both significantly better than U8. Also, U8 seems to be very humble/friendly so that also leaves no ego  to be broken. Perhaps you should talk some shit. Do you think you would beat me in a GOW series? KOTH series? Both?
