A brief look at the top 10* players with my thoughts, comments, and reactions to their shenanigans...

*At the request and by the bequest of several concerned players, our editorial staff has decided to tighten up the ratings to include only the absolute best - The Top 10™.

Without further ado...

(1) {ball}{PM}shmo55.ca

The Shmoseph Watch™ is officially on as we enter the high heat of summer. With sweltering temperatures barking at our doors, this summer could go down as one of the most influential in history as Shmo seeks to become the first member of the 4000 point club, evoking memories of that magical summer in 1998 that saved baseball.

(1) Liquid`HuK

No change in HuK's status this week as he is still super.

(3) [BBQ]Brai[|)

With a flurry of post-death anchors and shots, Braiden has thrust himself into the spotlight at number two. Get excited for the 1-2 heavyweight matchup in the Skyleague Finals™, it should be a doozy!

(4) ///tVo.FrozenInferno

Coming out of nowhere from spot number four, the relatively unknown FrozenInferno has taken ladder by storm and leaped into the number three spot. Despite having skill on a wide array of planes, he still doesn't use Biplane. A true American.

(5) BlueBomber

Still the only biplane that can exploit just how OP the biplane is. Are biplane players just dumber than everyone else?

(6) V a l

I'm convinced at this point that Valandil is actually a computer simulation created by Nobodyhome. Similar to Mr. Anderson of The Matrix, Valandil was placed into ladder for the purpose of balancing an equation - in this case, he balances how terrible the rest of the European players are.

(7) [FRO]G00SE{arr}

G00se remains an ephemeral and enigmatic member of the ladder system. At one moment, he is a wise-cracking mumbleite set on wreaking havoc. The next, he is a daring explodet, swooping through the canyons and who gives a ****kkkkk.

(8) {arr}Sunaku

Sunaku is still not number one. Ladder must be broken. Or maybe his skills are! :o

(9) [BBQ] voi[|)

Void is actually #1 in the power rankings when you use advanced metrics to adjust for "getting the ****tiest team possible." We'll see if he can step on the gas now that the trade deadline is approaching. Sweden! :cool:

(10) {r87} elixir

Rounding out our new format, top 10 only, is the always charming elixir. Playing all four planes with deft efficiency, the only thing more constant than his electrifying style is his presence in these rankings.


Notes and other hubbub from this top 10:

- Democracy triumphs again!
- If you score five goals, you will probably lose the game.
- elixir beat a gold league rank 6 Terran. Pop bottles then we pop models!

Editors note one: =Pat:akk:=@Vacation! was dropped from the rankings due to excessive inactivity. We have decided to leave his second spot vacant, as HuK realistically needs a full two places to properly convey how great he is.

Editors note two: thanks to all of you who provided feedback and formatting suggestions for this periodical. We at The Top 10™ strive to read all of your mail, though it is often voluminous. Our implementation of this new Top 10™ format, departing from Top 15™, was not easy, but we felt that listening to the readers was the right way to go.

As always, God bless.
