Canadian one-two and yet another 5-star Warrior
May was a solid month with some exceptional performances from across the team.
It was also a month for recognition of other achievements and milestones including the elevation of yet another Warrior to attain the 5-star avatar.
This avatar is given to those team members who manage to complete more than 2,500 games for the team. This time we have mysticknight – Cliff from California in the US – who has moved through this milestone as well. This is a fantastic achievement and shows fantastic commitment to the team cause.
This now gives us four Warriors who reached this remarkable achievement for the team.
As for May performance, papabearof3 – Ron from the US – has been eating up games for the team and delivered a net gain of 9 points in the month.
Just ahead of him was gibsonscot – Scott from Alberta in Canada – came in with a gain of 10 points for the team in the month.
However, well out in front for May was fellow Canadian desmondvan, Matt from Victoria, who bounced back dramatically from a dip in form to deliver a net gain of 17 points.
This gave Matt the MVP award for May and congratulations to him and all those who gained in the month.
So now trying not to leave anyone out, here is the full list of those who returned net positive scores during May:
