Il brought over (from vpn) / created the master tag for me exclusively, then burnt fought reluctantly to change that.
Not il, but Ldir. And you was one of three masters. But you definitely was the best one.
The first master was MasterKSA. He got this tag in 2004, when war2.ru was not known outside a small company. Here is the history page with KSA's master certificate (at the bottom):http://war2.ru/oldsite/
Later, war2.ru became more popular, and a lot of people with good skills joined this server. In 2005 you beat MasterKSA 6-1 and got the "master tag" from Ldir. About the same time Gimli has beaten all the Russian players (including MasterKSA), and got the "master tag" too. So, only three players have historical "master tags" given by Ldir: you, Gimli and MasterKSA.
I even have somewhere replays of your competition with MasterKSA, if you want I'll try to find them.
