Rayku’s TSC Career
Rayku joined TSC on the 14th March 2004, so as far as most people are concerned, he’s a long time member and a great player to boot, although only latter quality afforded him this place in the Top 10, after much deliberation between Rayku and several other players that didn’t quite make it. In fact, Rayku, was only _just_ beaten by the Number #9 player, who will be revealed tomorrow,
When Rayku joined, he only submitted times for Sonic Adventure 2 (B), and even at that point, it was clear to see that he would eventually become very highly ranked at that game. Of his original set of times, most of, if not all of them were in the Orange bracket, if not almost certainly in the Red Bracket. It was at this point in time, when he passed SM in the rankings and moved up into, I believe, 5th place, that many of TSC’s members saw the potential in him, I myself, who was at the time sitting quite comfortably in 3rd place, a considerable distance behind supersonic101, who obviously, at the time was 2nd, realized he would eventually overtake me in the rankings, and he did just that.
We first saw what Rayku was truly capable of when he took a sweep of Radical Highway with relative ease, a sweep which he still holds today in fact, despite the fact that his times were beaten from time to time, he always fought back and reclaimed the records for each of the 4 Mission’s for Radical Highway, a sweep which he has now held for almost a year, (It will be a year on the 1st November).
The next time we saw Rayku’s pwnage skills in SA2:B, was with Final Chase, were he comfortably took a sweep there, but not without a little competition from myself back when he originally got the records, and still holds that sweep too, with little challenge to take it away from him.
I seem to recall a time where Rayku actually had the record for ALL of Shadow’s Missions throughout the SA2:B Chart, and while this may not be exactly true, he did have most of them, even if his times have been beaten over the time since he set them.
Rayku then, as predicted by myself and many others, begin slowly rising through the ranks, passing me up into 4th, Kev had by this point knocked me out of my cosy Top 3 spot, before passing Kev and making it into the Top 3. By this point Rayku had begun taking records left, right and ‘soniccenter’, easily passing Kev and earning his place in “The 1337est’s Circle”, The SA2:B Top 3. By taking even more and more records, and by getting almost all of the rest of his times into the Top 6 or 7, he passed SS101 and found himself sitting some 100 Points back from Cybrax. So, did Rayku give up? Did he decide he was happy with his 2nd place and stop playing? Nope, he did quite the opposite in fact, he played like there was no tomorrow, attacking Cybrax’s times in order to raise Cybrax’s Point Total and lower his own and thus close down the gap much quicker, and on the 26th of November 2004, Rayku found himself Champion of SA2:B, almost certainly the most prized Championship on the site, and almost certainly the most difficult to take, owing to the very skilled and high-up players such as SS101 and Cybrax.
Rayku even earned himself a “Congratulations” Topic from no less than SS101 for this amazing feat, bearing the message “Congratulations Rayku for pwning every SA2 Player in the World’s Ass off.” And damn straight he did.
Rayku retained his title for a considerable amount of time, 7 and a half months in fact (Although 3 of those can hardly be considered as TSC was down and for that time), until finally on the 21st July he was ousted out of 1st Place by none other than SS101, who still could not pull away a great deal, truly showing Rayku’s complete domination.
Yet while this was going on, Rayku competed in 3 other games, mostly Sonic Heroes. Rayku didn’t really pwn at Heroes Levels like he did with SA2:B, Although he did smash 3 levels wide open, the rest of his times merely being somewhat standard. He only ever submitted two times for the Extra Bracket too, which is now doubt highly influential towards his 11th Place Overall Ranking. However, Rayku truly pwned at the Bosses of Heroes, taking a good deal of the Records and quite a few of the Totals to boot! Surely if he had TAed the Extra Missions he would’ve ended up in the Top 6, for sure. With regards to that, his SA:DX and Sonic 2 rankings look very poor compared to his other 2 rankings….but not so much when you consider that he only ever submitted FOUR times for DX and only ONE for Sonic 2, that makes his rankings, roughly 2/3rd’s up, seem quite impressive.
Having said this, Rayku retired from Time Attacking this year, he returned after TSC’s downtime to update all of his times that were lost, and took a single record (Hidden Base Mission 1) before hanging up his Controller. Rayku’s times to this day remain a milestone for people to aim it. Rayku has proved his insane abilities and truly ‘1337’ skills with his dominance of SA2:B, and even to this day, while not competing remains in a very close second, close by the SA2:B’s Rankings at least, and its these abilities and his utter pwnage that earned him the Number #10 Spot in TSC’s Greatest Players of all time.
Until Sunday, where I’ll be revealing Player #8, I’m handing the topic over to mike for Player #9, hope this keeps you on the edge of your seats with suspense.
