  • Tony Riddler Smith

    when will the ARGCS vids be uploaded to youtube could’nt caught the live stream

  • I love these.

  • Ben Bahler

    unless he’s just trolling…

  • Ben Bahler

    How do you even be the #2nd ranked player ever? where can i see these rankings?

    • Alexander

      They don’t actually exist. It’s an ego thing. Even if it did, hoban wouldn’t be counted, as his “premier event” tops consist mostly of arg tops, which aren’t sanctioned by konami in any way.

      • Elvergalarga69

        However it’s just like George Clooney or Tom Cruise being Homosexuals, Hoban is just never going to admit it or reply to any of these comments, it would be sad if he’s not actually trolling but actively believing himself to be one of the top ranked players ever…

      • Constantine Varelas

        Actually most of his tops are non-ARG events. I believe it’s 11/12 non ARG tops/wins and 5/6 ARG tops/wins. Including being our national champion last year. I wouldn’t!have responded except your facts are just wrong.

  • Elvergalarga69

    2nd ranked player ever counting ARG tops, yeah keep telling yourself that Pat.

  • Guest

    2nd rank player ever, yup keep telling yourself that Pat.
