So... Its been quite a while since we've had any player ranking discussion.
The last time it was actually kinda awkward because the discussion seemed to be mostly by a combination of relative newbs, who hadn't had a chance to play the entire community, and a bunch of retired guys, who weren't up to date to what was going on.
But now, I feel that as a whole we've all got a lot more solid of an idea where everybody sits. And that should make the discussion more fun and interesting.
I'd like to start by saying that, We are ALL very good, and I think that each one of us is capable of beating the other.
But that aside, I'd like to say that I think both Derpy, and Nitefire are extremely good. Top tier.
