Top 10 insta ctf players of all time?
« on: February 09, 2017, 12:14:15 am »
Used to play this game a ton many years ago, and I'm just now getting back into it... I have vague memories of absolute gods who completely dominated matches, but nowadays I don't see any names I recognize, and no one dominates to anywhere near the same degree. Who are the all-time greats of insta? Also is the competitive history of this game documented anywhere?

Honzik is pretty damn good. He was probably around when you played the game many years ago too.

seems relevant: http://sauerleague.org/index.php/psl-history1

you may remember those names if you around those days. only honzik1 is still active. My ranking would go something like this:

1. !s]Starch
2. w00p]Tenshi
3. RB|Honzik1
4. Fk|Asylum
5. rC.neon

Ha, what's funny is I don't really recognize any of those names. From poking around I did find Skillz and miseria, who I definitely played with back in the day. Maybe I was/am just too much of a scrub to know who's good or not. Do good players usually hang out on the public servers like pastaland, etc...?

I think the combo of Tenshi, Jay-EM and Teppo was the greatest of all time in Sauer.

Players, that Acuerta listed, are really well known and were pretty skilled in insta modes (some of them are still active or were not so long time ago). Acuerta is one of them, he was just too humble to list himself. If they played on a public server, it was probably PSL1. Back in that time it was the most popular and active server where we, players who liked to hang out with each other, used to play together.

Good old times...

w00p dominated in 2009 with the combo mefisto mentioned, with Majikal swapped in as well. vaQ (still a part of TC at first) had a lot of success in 2010 and beyond, with Finn, T-chen and Kaz. JG (Fraggsta, 0815, ulului) began dominating at the end of 2010, and their success carried on into the SWL era (2011-2012ish) where they were neck and neck with sp4nk (Achille kuzen, echo-echo).

to recap:

JG: Fraggsta, 0815, ulului
sp4nk: Achille, kuzen, echo-echo
w00p: tenshi, teppo, Jay-EM/Majikal
vaQ: finn, t-chen, kaz

Personally I think JG and sp4nk stood a cut above vaQ and w00p in terms of peak ictf skill.

No idea which players I'd chose, though the roles would be something like defensive players, support players and the ones who take the flag.

For defensive players I'd would go for Tenshi, Kane, Razor for sure. It has nothing to do with them being more skilled than other players or not, but I've always been impressed by players who can aim right without consistently moving, and those players had/have that for them.
