Please get a different forum for next year. It won't even let me use my own account on the board anymore because it conflicts with another account that I can't even log into(???), and the index is more ads than forum listings.

I couldn't see the actual raidercon thread. I'm going to blame that on Tapatalk, too, out of general convenience.

Is Sygian even still around?
alright for his nomination (I don't remember squat)
He was:
-HYDRA General
-Council of Hawks
-Auralian Knight Commander
-Led large scale raids (with 10+ orgs/regions in them)


Don't forget that Sygian and I, raided TEP and forced a delegate transition from Hobbes to Aelitia, only by ourselves and the unknowing WA masses. Shame Aelitia didn't coup, but at least he got to finish his "original term" :P

Tapatalk is not great, but it's easier to use for 4-6 days than it is to make a new forum that's functional, especially having missed the window to scrape all the old stuff off the Raidercon one while focusing on saving other forums. We've been attempting to focus more on discord than the forums this year too, since everyone asked prefers that.

Interesting thought, but can we not just post the interviews on the thread instead, and skip the forum entirely (for next year of course)?

The idea is that the forum is a lot easier to go back and look at several years later, instead of digging for posts in a thread. Could post on both though

For the interviews, yeah. I honestly think the commentary parts would get more interaction over here on GP where everyone already has an account (not clear on Discord involvment).

Come one, come all, and grab a drink as we get ready to unveil this year's crop of inductees! Before I lay the results before you all tonight, I'd like to thank my judges that helped me make my first year curating this great hall such a pleasure. You guys really did your homework and deliberated hard on the many choices presented to us this year. I'm glad I got to be exposed to some awesome raiding history through all the research we conducted this year. So, a big round of applause to his year's judges! Except HEM.

As you all know, a maximum of only 5 raiders can be inducted into this esteemed hall every year. So this year's list of 30 nominees felt like a double-edged sword in a way: A daunting process of elimination for those most worthy, and a hopeful reminder of all the talent that may get their names in the hall one day. Friends and enemies of Gameplay, please join in the journey our judges have been on over the last few weeks through raiderdom's past and present as I introduce and raise a toast to the Raiding Hall of Fame Class of 2019!




1 Infinite Loop was the founder of The Farkers, one of the first organized raiding groups in NationStates. The raids of The Farkers were foundational in developing tactics of raiding as it exists today. Furthermore, their large-scale raid of The Heartland and antagonizing practices largely influenced the adversarial dynamic of raiding and defending.

Killerkatz a.k.a. Shell was the founder of Catlandatopia, an efficient and effective raiding organization that peaked from 2006-2009. Killerkatz led and coordinated several raids including Feudal Japan, Florida, Brotherhood, India, Hethrum, and North Pacific. She was also heavily involved in the invasions of San Francisco Bay Area, a noteworthy defender region, and Marxist Leninist Party. Killerkatz ensured that their region remained the bane of defenders' existence while in operation, and through her tenacity she was widely regarded as a top notch raider commander.

Reventus Koth co-founded The Brotherhood of Malice, a raiding organization that helped forge the identity of Osiris, a Game Created Region, as raider. Later in his career, Koth rose to a General within The Black Hawks and was instrumental in building connections between the raiding and role-playing communities. He spearheaded a push to make raiding more acceptable to unaffiliated nations and inspired notable roleplayers to join raiding organizations.

Free Noldor States played an integral role in two of the most well-known raiding organizations in history: DEN and The Black Hawks. He served as the DEN Field Marshal and helped transition the organization to modern raiding. He was also a General in The Black Hawks that helped to integrate new members. Noldor was an excellent advocate for raiding unity. Through his leadership and mentorship, newer raiders were able to carry older raiding practices forward.

Sorenity2 was a former General of The Black Hawks, and was one of only 3 players ever to hold the title of TBH Commander-in-Chief. He played a pivotal role alongside Red Back in refounding TBH. As The Black Hawks’ Minister of Foreign Affairs and Head of Special Operations, he was involved in countless intelligence operations including the infiltration of The North Pacific using the alias "Galapagos Isle,"where he rose to the position of Minister of Defense.
