Cases Ladder Standings
A few days before Christmas in 2003, an old War2 player and friend of mine emailed me several .html files from the old Warcraft 2 ladder. I always thought it would be interesting to see some of the old standings, and I really didn't think anyone had any of these pages saved. I guess Christmas came early for me this year. Unfortunately none of these dates have my win streak of 75 in them, but I will add a few comments here and there.
My 75 game win streak falls in between this first and second link below, so I don't have a saved ladder during that time. There are almost 1500 ranked players in March of 1997 but it drops to under a 1000 in December of 1997. I remember being ranked in the 1700s when I got my first ladder win.
If anyone happens to have any other old standings like this, even from The Zone or Heat leagues, I'd love to get my hands on them.
Singles Ladder Standings
March 1997 - Lots of old names to see on this one. At rank 1429 there is a guy named 'axlotl'. I'm pretty sure I had the name Axolotl first and that guy there stole it.
December 17th 1997 - MISS DEATH and friends had the accounts for ranks 2, 3 and 4 at the time that I was rank 5. They would always dodge me, so after beating the rank 1 player I removed myself from the ladder as there was no longer much point to it. After that I got into the team ladder more. The Avatar at rank 36 is the person who finally made my cases record go from 75-0 to 75-1. I lost to him on Fierce Ocean Combat Low.
February 6th 1998 - Two IN members and Candyman in the top 10.
March 24th 1998 - Sandstorm and Aias have both been allies of mine.
July 25th 1998 - Azteca takes number one at 83%
October 3rd 1998 - My brother ranked 54 (Aguro)
October 22nd 1998 - Archangel at number 1
November 10th 1998 - A name I used for fun after my big winning streak. Here it is at rank 49 (17-0).
November 21st 1998 - My brother and I one rank apart at 59 and 60.
February 24th 1999 - My brother at rank 92 shows a high rank of 29.
March 19th 1999 - Kith at rank 5 with my old email address. I don't remember that.
April 2nd 1999 - Ywfn at number 1
May 10th 1999 - My brother Dryad ranked 92. Our own personal forum moderator takes over the number 1 spot again.
June 27th 1999 - Kith-kanin rank 16 at 27-1.
July 23rd 1999 - Kith decides to start losing games :P
September 11th 1997 - Check out how many teams there on here. The ladder was so awesome during this period. The strap-on peons (#91) had the best team page any ladder has ever seen.
Unknown - This is from late 1997 or early 1998. My team is rank 5 and the name was to make fun of the other /(illaz teams that were around at the time. I ended up 33-5 on this team. The hehehe clan (now known as clan 24-7) is rank 29 and were making their strides into the elite players.
January 10th 1999 - Near the end of Cases Ladder's life.
Team [O]rion II - 5/6ths of the way down there are 2 games played against Dark Tangent when my good buddies Kith-Kanin and Pestilence were on that team. Just below that is a game against Tides of Darkness (Pestilence and ~Mage;.~), another one of my old teams. Mage is the fellow that made book'em for kali.
-Special thanks to Candyman
