Quarter-Finals Games between mYsTiKaLSouL and Tl2yToWin
The tiebreaker! NubOnNub Crime FTW!
_Rider, the recently crowned #1 Hitt War Player of All Time has decided to adopt the “no more mr. nice guy” moto, or mantra if you will.
Apparently he squared off with Mr. Dane @ Rank #4 yesterday and here’s the result:
Mr. Dane has sworn revenge though, and the upcoming 1v1 Hitt War tournament will be very interesting!
We at RoRNews.net will do anything in our power to emo it up as much as possible leading up to the battles – this is just a taste on what shall come!
13:31 Dane? lolz
Update, the no more mr nice guy moto is already in effect (as is rornews.net’s emofication initiative):
Ya rider pwns me now but I was undisputed #1 from like 99-2006(7)ish
dane is so fuckign funny
he cracks me up
får jag copypasta in i pwnification of teh week-posten?

It’s time for another list in RoRNews.net’s Top 10 All Time Series, namely 1v1 Hitt war!
Much like how 1v1 Conti always has been the 1v1 setting of RM, has 1v1 Hitt War always been the 1v1 setting of DM. Virtually every legend of the DM art has possessed a pwningful 1v1 hitt in his bag of pwnjabi. People playing only NS or only TGs, you might be a part of the DM history books, however, you’re merely a footnote in the appendices, I’m Sorry! 1v1 Hitt War is were DM is at!
As indicated by the title this lists spans from 2000 and forward, simply because I am in no position to include any earlier data since I did not play DM then. The time-periods that will be emphasized are 2000-2005, and 2007-2011. Unlike Conti, Hitt war has actually been quite alive even during the IGZ/GR/Voobly era. This makes the list a bit harder to compile given that your innate inclination to romanticize and add nostalgic value to anything that is “old” will conflict with your ability to compare the time-periods without any bias. I have done my best to eliminate any such emotions, however, to make this list as objective as possible. Furthermore, I have consulted a couple of highly regarded elites whenever I felt I couldn’t make up my mind, or simply lacked the necessary data.
I also want to make sure that you all understand that this list based on relative skill and not absolute skill. I’ve used countless analogies to make this point clear to you minions while posting lists like this in the past. I’ve used the 100m runner analogy – just because Jesse Owen won the 1936 Olympics at 10:36, a time that wouldn’t even grant him a spot in the semi-finals of the 2008 Olympics, does NOT make him a weaker runner than those who run today. Sports evolve with equipment, training regimens, knowledge etc. The same logic is applicable in RoR, primarily there’s a never-ending accumulation of knowledge that is being diffused even quicker today, with recorded games and what not. Any player who says he knew everything he knows today back in 2003 is a complete fool. You learn something virtually every time you are defeated in a tough game, or when you are making a comeback you didn’t really believe in until it was complete. The bottom-line is, you cannot really compare the absolute skill of a player 2001 and say 2011 – they competed in different eras that were characterized by different strategies, different prioritizations different level of knowledge and so forth. Instead you need to base a list such as this one on other parameters such as dominance, skill in relation to other top-level competition, innovativeness, consistency and other parameters that stand against the ravages of time (and evolution!).
The dynamics of DM are a bit different and one can actually DOMINATE DM in ways not possible in RM since spots play a greater role in deciding the outcome of a game. Therefore, I’ve added another parameter to the criterion: “Aura of invincibility”.
To be honest, the ordering of the top 3 was probably hardest. In the end, however, _Rider emerged as the natural #1 choice due to his extreme aura of invincibility. He’s an emotionless machine that, in a puma-conti-like manner just manages to squeeze out victories in games everyone else would meet their maker. Although this was the deciding factor, one shall never forget what a killer he is, or how easily he can dispatch many of the players on this top 10 list.
Lol2d might be many things, a big emo, an alleged no-fogger, completely unable to adapt to an evolved version of hitt war. However, during his peak Lol2d had uncanny hitt war skeelz. He was a machine, and quite frankly, watching him then impressed me more than watching Tiny and _Rider today. The reason why he is not #1 is primarily because his inability to regain pwn (I mean, he’s still good, but he should be much better) kind of tarnishes his legacy. Remember that consistency (also in a longer perspective) is an important factor. Furthermore, despite being the beast he was, he never had an aura of invincibility comparable to Rider’s ditto.
A power house, out-clicks anyone, produces more eco and army in shorter time than anyone. Tiny has got incredible Macro and Micro. So why is he not #1? It is simple; he does not own the mind of a champion. He does not have an aura of invincibility comparable to Rider’s ditto. He gives up easier; he obsesses about (imaginary) spot-differences. If you combined Tiny’s physical attributes with _Rider’s strategic acumen, calmness and perseverance you would have one scary, unbeatable beast, that’s for sure.
I must admit that I probably never saw Dane’s peak, and during 2001-2004 I had a positive record vs. him. However, he’s the godfather of DM, and unlike john and lord he’s actually still very good. He’s an innovative, intelligent and assimilative player who’s always been, and still is, a threat to anyone.
John impressed me a lot when I started to hitt war, but even back then he had problems adapting to the evolution of hitt war. He claims a lot of ridiculous shit. I as an objective observer can tell you all, he was not as good as Lol2d during the 2001-2004 heydays. Still a beast of a hitt war player, who played very mechanistic and caculated.
Goldy has always been the dark-horse of 1v1 Hitt War. What he lacked in consistency and experience he made up in superior eco and army control. Peak wise he’s probably top 3, however, this list is not about a couple of small peaks the players reach during a couple of weeks here and there. To this date, however, when he puts his mind into it. he can still punish the best of the best in a round of hitt war.
The korean clicking machine brought a killer ele rush and gave anyone a handful during his reign of terror. However, since he and Goldy compared penis-size on quite a few occasions with Goldy winning significantly more, he’s #7 instead of #6.
Another dark horse who whenever he put his mind into it produced a very very very elite 1v1 hitt war.
To be honest, spot #9-#40 is virtually impossible to decide, so many players to choose from. I chose Andy because he was really good, and a lot of highly regarded elites mentioned his name.
10. TryToWin (Arno)
Arno has been playing 1v1 hittite for 10 years now. He is quite good now, and has always been quite good. He grabs the #10 spot due to his terrific consistency and great overall skills.
That’s it folks – flame away!
