Thanks to everyone who tuned in to last night's inaugural episode of HearthCenter. We had a blast doing it even with some of the technical difficulties. As always, we'll try to keep improving. That being said, you can find the VOD here.
There's a lot more description in the video than I can hope to proffer in a short blurb for each player, so I think on a weekly basis I'm going to let our discussion speak for itself and use this space to correct egregious errors or otherwise espouse thoughts I happened to miss. In case you missed it last night, here are the Ragnaros Week 4 Player Ranking:
1. SirLos 4-0 (12-5)
2. TwoStarMako 4-0 (12-2)
3. DoctorZephyr 4-0 (12-5)
4. Edelweiss 3-0 (9-1)
5. RidiculousHat 3-1 (11-4)
6. Itachi 3-1 (9-4)
7. Rizen 3-1 (10-4)
8. Skritch 4-0 (12-3)
9. BlueSombrero 3-1 (11-6)
10. TheChronic 4-0 (12-3)
As I mentioned last night, missing Aviously (4-0, 12-6) was just a straight up oversight on my part and I sincerely apologize. Avi, I love you and you know that. In the interest of consistency, I wanted to post the list as it was last night but if I could do it all over again, I'd have Aviously ranked 3rd which would bump everyone else down 1 spot.
Jammies took some umbrage with my ranking of Itachi. Despite him not being undefeated and taking a sweep in that loss, I find myself most impressed by the body of work in the wins themselves. Apexpredador in a sweep win. Catman was handed his only loss of the season also in a sweep win. Crovan in a 3-1 win. That's firing out of the gate and despite the loss to YellowDart, I find him worth of the top 10.
Rizen was my other pick for the most impressive wins thus far. SmileyKris in a sweep. Stephieee in a 3-1 win. And a sweep over Alvarkhalon in handing him his only loss. No shame in a loss to Nated4444. Another strong start for Rizen.
Sylvanas Player Rankings - Donde
1. BillSnyder 4-0 (12-0)
2. The_bigted 4-0 (12-2)
3. ClarkHellscream 4-0 (12-6)
4. Boozasaurus 3-1 (11-6)
5. Rizen 4-0 (12-4)
6. Myth 3-1 (10-4)
7. KillerVeebs 4-0 (12-6)
8. Finnickodare 3-1 (10-6)
9. jyak 3-1 (10-6)
10. ironFIRE 3-1 (11-4)
Finnickodare was Jammies' main concern in this list. Once more I find myself impressed by the win quality. 3-2 win over FollowDurden. A player who has a much higher PR in conquest. A 3-1 win over a struggling Brasky. A struggling Brasky is still a very tough opponent. And lastly a sweep over the Diamond Award winner himself, DexterHS. I maintain his spot on the rankings is valid.
The four seed seems pretty loaded in Sylvanas as I felt like The_bigted's quality of wins was also quite high. He too defeated Brasky 3-1. FollowDurden 3-1. The power rankings own JerryDamage also fell in a sweep. And finally another sweep, this time over Force of Will.
But damn, BillSnyder's a killer huh?
