Why create this thread?

Simply stated, the ladder is generally not the best depiction of skill, imho.  It GENERALLY tracks who plays the game the most and/or who acts like a jerk by cheating instead of who the most talented players are.  That's not to say that everyone high up in the ladder falls into this category.  So, if I were to put together my own ladder that indicated skill, I wonder how things would shake out.  Obvious hurdles being that many highly skilled individuals don't play each other.  So, this requires either the people that don't play together to play more together (my personal choice) or I have to rely from feedback from other players.

Your part if you want to participate

Who do you guys think are the best players in demigod today?  I understand that its a team game, but individual players do tend to stand out (and I also know that one great player can't guarantee a win if he has weak teammates, etc).  I'm happy to have everyone's feedback.  I'm not looking for people to jump in and flame. Just call out who you think is great or who you'd like to see fight.  Perhaps we'll get games going.  You want to flame and talk crap, your post will probably end up deleted. 

You can nominate anyone you want.  To keep this from being a list of who likes who, several individuals that are generally considered excellent at the game will moderate the list.  If those individuals generally agree, a player can be removed or promoted in the list.

I've decided on 4 categories of players and have provided descriptions of each.  Please recommend players along with the category you feel they fit in.

Tier 1 Demigod Players:

Realistically, its my belief that there are 10-30 players in this game that are tier 1 DG players (the best). Those players shine as individuals, generally with a wide variety of characters and do not depend on a specific team or teammate to do well.  They can play exceptionally in 1v1, 2v2, 3v3, 4v4, and 5v5.  These are players that do not cheat or desync games.  These are the people that you want on your team or you want to play against because you know you will get a good game.  Any player in this list or any other should currently be an active player.

  • GM-Zen_God
  • Nomilarac
  • Orcun
  • OMG-pacov
  • Paulie Carbone
  • RAWRRRR
  • ThatGuyYoulove/ boxxy_Koush
  • trousersnake

Tier 2 Demigod Players:

These are players that don't quite currently fit into highest level of players, but are good players all the same.  Perhaps they require a specific team or can only do well in specific types of games (1v1, 2v2).  The bottom line is that they aren't quite as polished or versatile as the highest level players.

Tier 3 Demigod Players:

A third group (or list) would be everyone else. No need to list individuals...

Demigod Players that Should Be Avoided:

These would be specific individuals that clearly (and I mean clearly) cheat.  You don't get on this list unless I (pacov) am VERY convinced that you belong here.

  • AlienWarrior - This player should be avoided.  Stat exploiter confirmed by pacov.  As of 1/5/2010, this player has 34 wins and 0 losses and is ladder ranked 34.  I played a game with him in a 1v1 with him as the host.  After confirming that the player spoke English, I asked him if he would let the stats count if I beat him (there is currently a simple exploit that enables any host in a 1v1 game to make the game disappear if they don't want the stats to be kept - Also note that this player plays almost exclusively 1v1 games).  The player did not respond to my question.  As I began to tear down both sides of the player's base, he used the stat exploit and the game vanished as a result.  The player used this exploit with about 10 minutes left in the game.  Based on his stats and skill level (read: not highly skilled), this player is clearly exploiting the stat system.
  • PrizmSmurf - This player should be avoided.  Stat exploiter and poor sport confirmed by pacov on 4/1/2010.  After losing in a 2v2 matchup, PrizmSmurf said "I hope you die a long slow death of cancer.  I mean it."  Then said, "Bet you are going to enjoy watching me desync."  Then, just before the citadel went down, desynced the game. Based on his stats, he clearly does not desync games on a regular basis, but wishing cancer on someone because they beat you in a game and then committing the one offense in demigod that can get you banned (saying you are desycning then desyncing) is a bit over the top.  I suggest you avoid him.

I've come to like the DCV. It helps people a lot more then BotF when they're being pelted by Fireballs.

I love watching UBs die. LOVE IT!

Nothing is as happy to me as interrupting spit. Making that bastard choke on his own vomit gives me a sick feeling of joy...in my pants.

TODAY - we retire GM-morpheas768. He is taking his leave from DG. Arguably, he was certainly a tier 1 candidate for DG. An excellent player, good on your team or against. He will be missed.

Your song is after the link, my friend. Hope to see you in other games: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rY0WxgSXdEE

Today - I will get a couple more entires right. Morph will go to tier 1 today and then be removed. Adding GM-Renz0kuken to tier 1. This is due... can't even explain why I had reservations at this point.

Thanks Pacov, I've been vouching Mr. MIGHTY MORPH as tier 1 since this thread started   I think it might simply that I encountered him more than some of the others here given that we are both European.

I'd like to nominate player Grahf666 for tier 2. Played several times against and with him and think he is quite decent, is especially solid on Oak. No exploiting at all, good attitude, pug's with whoever (this is from what I've seen) and is just very fun to play with/against. Potential for Tier 1 is there without a doubt.

 

But I still think this list is dumb. Also, irek has quit the game?

Well, DG community, I'm about done with this thread.  If anyone has any desire to create a hall of fame thread or start a new tier 1 tier 2, feel free to start from scratch of copy what I created.  Thanks to everyone that took the time to read and participate.

Quoting Cowbuttzex,
I vote to remove Omicron and Kingslet from the list they do not play anymore.

I'll drop Omicron.  He's been inactive for > 30 days.  Kingslet is right at 30 days, but may be gone for good.  I'll keep him for now.

edit - added soccer-mom to tier 2.  He belongs here.  Tier 2-1.5.

edit2 - removed exBorderline - inactive > 30 days

edit3 - removed gkrit - inactive > 30 days

edit4 - removed Obscenitor/Horsestranger - inactive > 45 days

I second this.  Also I don't know if Rawrr was removed for inactivity but he's back now and should be on here.  He's probably tier 1 but I haven't saved any replays lately, same with Mithrandar (depending on what kind of mood he's in lol).
