Wow, seeing these lists takes me back. I haven't played in years, but some names seem absent I'm going to do my best and try to remember a few names that I didn't see on this list already, and include those already mentioned that I definitely agree with. Names I felt deserved to be on the list for how they played during their primes and the fear they struck in people when encountered 1v1. These are all pre RoI and post SoA:
Captain - Sherwood, Beastwise, name started with a U...played by a girl if that helps anyone remember
Mini - Edelanor, Mantichord, Merimell, Ziras, Buna, Winterfell (best drawings ever)
Burg - Jugglez, Jasun, Adankone, Dupe, Palesinik, Jigglez, Cliodna, Knuggs (for his priceless bitter commentary)
Guardian - Bellrock, Eps, Jason, Arrikthegreat, Carnatia (she didn't play pvmp as much but was very skilled anyway)
Champ - Chily, Soleus, Halair, Thunderlipz, Shanehere, Anduhar
LM - Vaalea, Brazzack, Sugarpie, Yand, Alinoth (gets a friend vote, hey ali )
Warden - Zefn, Fallarden, Matdir, missing a really good one here and it's a crime
Hunter - Jmez, Yelk, Daymen, Boosted, Cornbred
RK - Sephiroph, Haikuu, Olerandir, Malarick, Shinanay, missing another really good one here too
6 boxer of doom - Bombjoure
There was a LM that was very good but mostly a raider. He used to make pots all the time and sell them on the AH...can't remember his name. Sometimes his kid would play on his character and ask to join groups even though he didn't know how to play and that was always funny. (edit: this is Yand)
I know there is a very good RK that I'm just spacing on. He came on the scene a bit later than the other RKs and would lead groups sometimes.
As far as LMs go, Vaalea was in a league of his own. Stands out as being the most head and shoulders above the rest of his class peers.
Warg - snoopey, stylen, lonewolf, freddyfastfingers, biological, rok, xkillah, thelegendarygoat, bunnytail (good luck getting those last 3 solo. <3 TvT)
Spider - evilspinnre, nidor, airfury, blackopal, silkdawn (not in 1v1 but he had legendary patience and made funny videos)
BA - shapz, this is where my memory really blanks. I know there are a few more but just cannot remember the names. sorry BAs, you deserve better, even though it was a very tough time for you solo at this point some had what it takes
WL - meregash, juiceyfruit
Defiler - skullflayer, dephailer, kreeperofladygaga, hotrocks
Reaver - luckyhit, slyc, beetlejuice (when he wasn't 1v1ing his laggy computer)
Big props to snoopey, stylen, lonewolf, luckyhit, and slyc. adankone/mantichord says hello and thanks for the countless 1v1s. I could always count on you guys to get a 1v1 if I ran around looking hard enough
What an awesome time to play in the moors. Thank you to everyone on this list and the players I unwillingly forgot. You made it fun.
thank you very much for the mention but...ive never really ever played a defiler
