Do me a favor. Keep an eye on these 3 (in General)
March 22 2006 11:37 PM EST
With this this post i'm going to highlight 3 players who will be climbing into the top 10. I also regard these 3 as the top contenders to Ranger's crown as king.
Why is Freed here? He owns several top 20 characters and has the time and pockets to keep up with Ranger.
Why is Jayuu here? At one time he actually scored a few wins off of Ranger and as stunning as that is i think he aims to be the king. He has the gear to challenge for the crown.
Why is Sutekh here? I am not to sure he has the bankroll to compete but he is a very strong strategist in fact he may be the best of the entire game.
Well there we have my list of players to watch come July.

Of all 3 i think freed have the biggest chance. The fact that he have the money to match ranger items and he should be going for tank team. Actually his character oduten have a decent chance to get at least a draw if he change his strat to anti tank with ToA. 2 DM VA + haste.
Crisis don't seem to have any chance unless he change strat(to what i don't know), Chappy prove that CoC + ToE won't work as his wall with db(big enough to match ranger mh) and toe still die in 1-2 rounds (almost 300k damge per hit).
Hubbell i don't know anything about him..so i won't comment on him.
It shouldn't be that hard to beat Ranger if u make a fully anti tank team..however its hard to have a team that beat both mage and tank team like Ranger. Every strat have a weakness, this game is kinda like rock scissor paper to me, your strat beat some strat and gonna get beat by some diff strat. Ranger kinda take the fun out of this as he is beating everyone else..i guess thats why hes the king.

I would like to say that there are several Chars with the same sortta strat (atm) as me doing equally as well. Ones I would keep my eye on are
My clan buddy Lord Gothmog and
Queen Beee - she has a very good Strat advisor (even tho he is from Scotland :-) )
... but there are at least a dozen more - I think it will depend very much on not only what new minions are added but, more importantly, when.
Shade is not from Scotland!

Oh shade is her advisor - no chance then :)
JK - then she has two - even better

Ha ha. You're right Freed on one thing and wrong on the other. I'm Scottish but not a good strat adviser :)
Although I think wifey is making a nice team (not hard with the SFBM) she's not able to spend any of her BA during the day given her work commits. She will continue to grow and do quite nicely but she's never going to be a "get up in the middle of the night" kinda player like the rest of us sad people so that's going to hold her back in the long run. At the end of the day this game is as much, if not more, about clicking as often as your competition as anything else.
With a good team of advisers/clan mates around him I think one to watch is Roenall.
This is what the NCB is all about - makes it exciting watching Freed, Jayuu, Sut and various NUB's shoot thru the ranks. Almost makes me want to restart with NCB too although some good feedback from Ranger over the last couple of weeks have helped me out a great deal with Lorenzo and really given him a new lease of life. So no NCB for me anytime in the near future.

Roenall is one of my 'one to watch chars' also :)

Please don't watch me, it makes me nervous. (I'm kinda shy.) :)

/me bows to Megaman...
I appreciate the strategist comment, though I am far from th ebest in the game. *smile*
Indeed, the bankroll will give out all too soon and likely leave me high and dry, but if I can crack the Top Ten, I will be happy. I assure you, my target is not Ranger, at least not as primary.
Frantic is going to be tough, though in my opinion, he should stick with an RoE a little longer. The NW alone keeps him competitive even without a ToE...

Wish me luck.

My vote is on Ranger, but then you know I want him for admin :)
Ranger's ability to adapt will continue to stifle attempts to dethrone him for at least another few months.
I know there will be at least two new top 10 chars here soon, and likely a few more. What's more fun is picking who is gonna drop off...

This "Ranger" fellow seems a lot like Todd in CB1... Ah, nostalgia.
