Okay, so I was thinking about a photo of David's "cinco" picture and Bo's "#4" video. And I realized I had no idea how many maxes people had.

I had thought it went like this:

Jonas: tons
Harry: lots
Thor: who knows?
Quaid: 3
Bo: 3
Ben M.: 3
Me: 3
David: 2

And that's all I can think of at this particular moment (apologies if I forget other multi- guys). But in light of recent media, I think it is time to get a leaderboard going on this. Chime in and let me know your numbers!

Will get a nice "coded" leaderboard up soon.

Some sort of photographic evidence will be required for this competition. Exact terms are up for discussion.

i have 4, none of which are as impressive as my first (from both a points/line perspective and a contextual perspective).

yet in my defense, i play 99% of my games from 19 now. i play 3 games from 18 as i get out of bed and the rest from 19 after.

3. ### wasmachstdugern

PS i overheard quaid saying he has four max outs during the 2013 championships- 3 level 18, one 19.

4. ### wasmachstdugern

PPS: harry hong admits on video here that he has over 150 max outs. i literally sat here while this conversation happened.

5. ### wasmachstdugern

PPPS: he also admits on this video that the real "elite" club is 19 max outs. he says only 3 people can do it (him, jonas, and thor). bo has a 988k 19 start that was only thwarted by bad piece distribution, ben has an 877k, and da V has and 876.... just saying.

6. ### Niels_S

what recent media?

7. ### DavidV

i have 8 maxouts....all lvl 18 ...left side well
i stopped taking pics/video after 5 or 6 .....

8. ### wasmachstdugern

well played david! hearing about everyone's exploits makes me soooo excited for this years championship!

9. ### DavidV

Hopefully we can go again this year .. ...everyone I think has gotten better even though last year's field was stacked.....pretty soon the 32 man bracket is gonna have nothing but maxers...!!

These are mostly just generic numbers, but this is the logic of what I had envisioned. 19 maxes are the primary factor of ranking, other maxes are secondary, and tie breaks are decided by Level 19 highest non-max.
Code:

Rank -  Name - Lv19 Maxes - Highest 19 - Lv18 Maxes -
1 - Jonas -         12 -    900,000 -         50 -
2 - Harry -          6 -    900,000 -        150 -
3 - Thor  -          6 -    950,000 -          6 -
4 - Quaid -          1 -    900,000 -          3 -
=====================================================
5 - David -          0 -    [COLOR="Silver"]868,995[/COLOR] -          8 -
6 - Bo    -          0 -    931,260 -          4 -
7 - Terry -          0 -    844,481 -          4 -
8 - Josh  -          0 -    705,540 -          4 -
9 - Ben   -          0 -    877,433 -          3 -
10 - Matt  -          0 -    500,000 -          1 -
11 - Louie -          0 -    523,000 -          1 -
12 - Alex  -          0 -    876,420 -          1 -
13 - Chad  -          0 -    500,000 -          1
14 - Eli   -          0 -    500,000 -          1 -

you're making me sound so bad here! haha. at the end of the video, i was saying how impressed i was with bo's level 19 score. i even went up to him right after the video and congratulated him.

12. ### wasmachstdugern

lol!
sorry supa, i didn't mean to make you sound like a bad guy. it was more meant to motivate the rest of us to get some 19 maxes.
