I’m sure that is subjective, man. Considering how much of a plateau Legolas left and how hard Ho^3 has been trying I would guess he would disagree. And yeah, you’re still nitpicking the parallel, which was not implying that the no.1 spot is equivalent to tourney victor in every single aspect. My point still stands.
Also what Owl said is a fact. He is not even calling Panzer a cheat, he is saying that it is understandable for Ho^3 to be upset when someone cheats, which is a different thing to say. I would agree with you that people are jumping the gun here, no matter however “obvious” they may think Panzer cheating may be. I really hope this topic stops getting sidelined and that devs look into it if they still have IP logs around.
