Run Of The Week Classics is BACK in the spotlight, with its 19th edition!
Paying tribute to a real hero!
2007. Over a decade ago...
thopa is, for those fortunate to have witnessed his work for XJ, a real hero. He is one of the first admins XJ ever had, setting a very high standard in demo checking, demo releasing, involving himself into the community and playing the game. And man, he was playing it right! Skills beyond comprehension at that time, he left everyone in awe while jumping. Even today when looking back at his records we wonder how he could be this damn good so early in the game. 9 minutes and 54 seconds on a map like kz_cg_extreme in a year like 2007 is absolutely mind blowing. Just so you can understand the magnitude of this, there was NO OTHER player who could record this map. NO ONE even tried recording it. NO ONE couldn't even get passed the first block. This map was pure brutality back in the day. And thopa mastered it. If it weren't for those fails, his time wouldn't be so different than the current WR. This was thopa!
For now, the moviemakers whishes to remain private. But we deeply thank him for giving us the chance to resurrect this series we all love! He left the run intact and kept the video smooth. Just the perfect combination for ya'll to enjoy the lost times...
See you when March ends, for a new Classic, because we are back in business!
