He’s been in the top 5 for over two years, he’s one of the most talked-about Eliters ever…Ryan White is back! He’s achieved two amazing WRs: Silo Secret Agent 1:09, which is an untied record improving on 1:10 (which was already very impressive). And at long last, he’s achieved Dam Agent 0:53, playing through the pain of countless 0:54 duplications and 0:37 gate quitouts (often indicating you were on pace for 0:53 had you HIT THE LOCK). Ryan was the only Top 10 player to not have 0:53, and quite a few others also having it means Ryan gains 26 points with this time, halving the gap between him and Ilari Pekkala! Ryan has never been ahead of Ilari on the ranks, but that could all change very soon. We’ll wait and see if Ryan continues to play.
And let’s not forget Marc Rutzou, who continues his Aztec domination by tying David Clemens with Secret Agent 1:36. All he needs is 00 Agent 1:40 to have all the WRs on what he says is his favorite level. And if he gets that, will he try for Agent 1:29? Only time will tell.
Other recent GE activity includes a couple nice PRs from Takahiro Arai. He put up with Natalya TWICE to get Control Agent 4:04 and Secret Agent 4:19. In case you hadn’t noticed, Taka is the new PD champ, and he’s also 16th in GE. Could he become the next dual champ? People think it more likely that David Clemens will overtake Takahiro in PD before Taka claims the GE title from Clemens, but anything could happen.
