Nice way to save face, DiM...
The criteria for the list has NEVER changed... but I am glad you are finally happy with it now...
You could have saved yourself from typing so much rhetoric had you just bowed down to me from the beginning...For this list clearly shows that I, the great and magnificent Robinette, am unequivocally the best Conquer Club player under 30
It sure took you longer than most to come to grips with that, but to show that i harbor no ill-will towards you, I do hereby magnanimously forgive you of all your prior insolence and impertinence... And in addition, I will now allow you to bow before me...
not saving face and not disputing who is or should be on this top.
my main beefs were that:
1. this top has nothing to do with intelligence. you admitted i'm right and eventually removed the part where it said the top is about the most intelligent, blah, blah
2. the wording causes confusion because in one place you had 20 somethings in another you had all under 30. so you cleaned up the wording and now it is nice and clear.
3. this top is made on arbitrary criteria that doesn't reflect skill at a certain game type or even skill at CC in general.
so basically on 2 of my 3 beefs you agreed with me and applied the necessary corrections.
on the third one i never demanded a correction i simply stated my opinion. if you want to be at the top of a list of people based on some random criterion then i'm fine with it. heck it doesn't even prove that you're the best of those people it simply states that at a certain point in time you have more points than other people based on your criterion of choice. it's like saying "i can't be #1 on the scoreboard so i'll create my own scoreboard using a criterion that makes me look good". if that's what you fancy, then who am i to stop you? blitz made dozens of tops that put him in the spotlight. and i'm guessing just about anybody can come up with a personalized top something where he/she can be number 1.
but if you really want me to bow down, fine i'll be a gentleman and bow down, i don't really care about my e-peen as much as you do about yours. congrats on being the player with the most points while having a win rate bellow 30%.
