Since the topic was posted under the Courtyard section, us members cannot discuss the topic. I like to hear the reasons behind peoples' actions, so I thought it would be a good idea for me to make a sub-topic to hear what others have to say.
I guess I'll start it off.
The first person I voted for was (obviously) RioX. While I haven't been on good terms with him for a few things back then, no one can deny that his and Betonblok's choice to merge guilds into Hyrule has been one of the biggest power-plays in KoT history. Hyrule accomplished something no one thought was possible back then by completely destroying the top 3 guilds of MCT, Shadows Guild, and TheTrueKings.
My next person should be no surprise either. zedoop created the most powerful guild to ever be seen in KoT. Not only that, but he played a major role in MISHLO's success by maintaining his status as one of the top 5 players in the world for an extended amount of time. His recruiting of EvilDracur and Michael helped mold MISHLO into the ideal image of what a guild can be. I also have to give a HUGE amount of credit for demolishing Hyrule in our first GvG loss and eventually disbanding the guild to take number 1 on the leaderboard.
Finally, my last vote went to no name. He was the first person to beat the unbeatable Muscat99999/Jasim. He also created a guild that I, personally, have NEVER seen off of the top 10 leaderboard since I started playing this game.
On a little side note, I wish Blizzard's name would have been on the list. If I remember correctly, US Guild was able to reach rank 5. I also thought Blizzard was a great leader, but sadly he had quit playing shortly after I had left US.
