The following process and criteria was used to identify HoF Inductees:
To be considered eligible, one must have participated for at least 5 seasons in Legacy Series as either a player, a captain, or a consistent contributor to THL operations or content.
A selection committee of 9 community members was formed, and the community as a whole submitted nominations to be considered. Guidelines for selection include but are not limited to:
Bearing that in mind, the time has come to present to you our fourth class of Legacy Series Inductees:
Itachi joined THL in late 2017. Durden and I had just started a new team and Itachi was interested in joining. We decided to hold a scrim where Itachi and I teamed up against Durden and another prospective player, smileykris, in a Best of 5.
Itachi and I promptly lost all 3 games. But I could tell that Itachi was a strong player, and Durden and I decided to sign him to Project Mayhem. Mayhem never won a title, but Itachi has gone on since then to win 5 total championships in THL - at the time of this writing, the most of anyone in THL. Itachi has championships with 4th and Inches in Legacy Season 14, The Cult is Hero Season 9, F2L in Wild Season 1, and FTL in Pro Seasons 1 and 2.
And he’s done it all by being an excellent supportive teammate - always around to give advice on lineups, hop in voice to practice, or just co-op. Itachi is truly deserving of being in the THL Hall of Fame.
Itachi has been a staple of THL for as long as I have been around. Any time I see him on a team I know to take note of them and be wary. Itachi is not just a stellar player, but teammate as well! His participation within his teams is unparalleled. Offering lineup advice and practicing every week with his team is the norm for a player with such high standards as Itachi. So you too should be wary of any team he is playing on. His 5 championship titles reflects this intense motivation to succeed and it is in honor of his achievements that he is being inducted to the Hall of Fame.
Ghost with out a single doubt in my mind has been one of if not the most integral players on every single team he's played on. When he started out in THL I knew he was going to kill it every time he played. From the sheer amount of prep he put in week in and week out every single season, there was never a chance that he wouldn't do everything he could to win every single week. Seeing him grow as a hearthstone player both in and out of THL has truly been remarkable to see, and I'm glad he's finally getting the recognition he deserves for carrying prep every single season. Ly Ghost Ghost and congrats on HOF
me go face? YUP. me play priest? NOPE. what a motto to live by. a motto that only the few that truly devote their play style in the name of rexxar can claim. Some would say they have fallen so much into the hunter way of life they have fallen into the path of the demon hunter. Who is this person you may ask? well i will give you a hint. they claim to wear a hat but they never do, they are the most kind hearted person in real life but a pure savage on the hearthstone battlefield (no not battleground they are not that good there). thats right i am talking about RONTUNA erm i mean BrushyMexico umm i meant RONMEXICO!!!!!!!! feared by all opponents season after season in the legacy world of THL. consistently crushing their competition beneath their bow! Ronmexico has consistently shown THL what it is like to be a top performer in legacy so lets all congratulate him or boo him (live your life i can't tell you what to do) as we WELCOME HIM TO THE THL HALL OF FAME. congrats Ron you deserved this and i wish you all the best in future seasons to come. continue playing hunter classes and ignoring that priest all the way to the top!!!
I remember the day I met RonMexico. Fuel suggested he join my newly formed pro team, The Unknown. Ron was a go getter from the beginning, never missing a stride. His devotion to the team was unlike any other person I've met in the THL. I knew he was a great fit from the beginning and I had a feeling he was destined for greatness in our organization.
On top of all his stellar game player and teammanship, he delved into content. He took a struggling Around the Saloon and turned it into one of THLs best shows. He rarely turned down opportunities in content was always a go to guy who you rely on not only doing shows, but casting matches, tournaments, offering written content in PotW, and being an active member in our discord. Without Ron content would not be the same and not be in such a great place that it is in now.
Ron is also a great friend of mine. He was always someone I could bounce ideas off of and the late night discord calls with Tuna were extremely memorable. One thing is for sure, he isn't a HoFer for his BG plays.
His love the game and this organization is what makes his great along with his amazing and great hearthstone game. Ron congratulations!!!
BrushyTuna? Are you kidding me? No way this is right, did someone make a mistake? No? Alright everyone, pack it up, Hall of Fame is ruined now, they’re letting anyone in. Jokes aside though, I am so thrilled to see you added to THL’s Hall of Fame. It’s tough to name anyone who has brought more excitement, more positivity, and more straight up HYPE to THL you. You have had a massive influence on content for THL and in making all of our lives a bit brighter and more fun. From participating in weekly match shows, to community events, to casting a tournament all day long with me until our brains malfunctioned (is that the right word? It sort of implies our brains were in working order to begin with, which uh… yea, nevermind), you have been a great example of why we do what we do. I think a community like THL brings out the best in us, and that wouldn’t happen without you. Stay awesome buds!
We may now resume our regularly scheduled roasting of each other until the end of time
BrushyTuna. The day I met him was the same day I met Ron. I was asking for players for my newly formed Unknown Pro team and he was one of the first to ask you join. I saw this man and noticed he was a 5 seed in another series and figured he would be a work in progress. Boy was I wrong. This guy could play. He ended up MVP of Pro Series a few seasons later. I always joked 5 seed on legacy, 1 seed in Pro.
Tuna not only was an excellent hearthstone player but also delved into content. He was Ron's right hand man. Always offering great content and the banter between the two was as good as the games themselves. He, much like Ron, helped pushed THL in a newer better era of good content and great personalities.
On top of all of this Tuna became a great friend to me. Him and Ron would hang out on discord late into the nights and I would often join them. When I was having a tough day, I would enjoy a night of Tuna bashing Ron's BG plays. I have never laughed so hard in my life. He will always be a great friend to me.
Congratulations Tuna, we love you and miss you.
