    I think the podium is good.
    Players who put time and effort in getting top 3 like to be recognized for that feat. Maybe some don't, but I think it's safe to say that at least most people do.

    Your point about making a "podium" for Gauntlet is really good. I'm completely behind the idea!

    Ceeg, forward this message up the chain and make it happen, please!

Especially in this miserable meta with moonchild draws and more bugs than I have ever seen. But Gauntlet? That takes a ton of effort, knowledge, planning... that is the real "test" IMHO.

    So if you want to post pictures of the Arena podium, why not Gauntlet Podium also?
    While I strongly disagree on the supposed lack of skill needed to rank in Arena, I think you're absolutely right that Gauntlet is even moreso a test of skill, and ought to have its own podium. It takes hours of planning and tons of creativity just to reach top 10 - so reaching top 3 is quite an accomplishment. I don't see why there shouldn't be a podium for Gauntlet just like Arena - anybody who puts in the time and mental energy to tackle either and come out on top should get some recognition.

    Hell, even Hitler gave Jesse Owens props when the White House wouldn't... not that I'm making a reductio ad Hitlerum argument about the development team's lack of love for Gauntlet winners... :P

    Honestly, I just wish we all got along decently. By the end of reading the thread, it makes quite a few people seem bad in some form. But as long as I'm kept out of this mess, I'll allow you to keep doing your thing I guess. Maybe some day, we can all be chill together.

    Just because you CAN hide behind an internet connection and be try to be a bully that doesn't mean you HAVE to treat others that way.
