@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.

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.
