Hall Of Champions
This section is dedicated to the indepth history of the champions of this league
Spoiler:- Hall of Champions:
July 13th 2012 - August 22nd 2012
C-Demo was the champion of the original TMP, however he lost his status when the league was remade. He gathered the symbols in a pace unheard of in the league and was the very first champion.
September 14th 2012 - October 19th 2012
Prohawk quickly challenged the brains and rapidly established that he was a threat to the league. Within the first month of the thread being open, Prohawk obtained 15 of the 21 symbols and is now our first official champion.
Jirachiuser1 showed early on in the league that he was a competent and honourable battler. He was very persistant and now it has paid off. Jirachiuser1 is now a TMP champion, congratulations.
January 19th 2013 - March 23rd 2013
Blues, one of our first brains in the reopening to be decided he completed the league in a decent pace battling the brains being stumped by several. He contiued his journey when he obtained his 15th symbol and now has claimed the crown of TMP Champion.
March 23rd 2013 - April 5th 2013
Pslio, a powerhouse challenger Pslio returned to the league after several months haitus and quickly obtained the few remaining symbols he needed. He finished just prior to the elite Four system being implimented. He also defeated Blues making him the 5th TMP Champion to date. Congrats Pslio
EmeraldGoblin has been a frequently seen face in this league since the very begining, he returned to challenge the league just prior to the Elite four being released he is the first champion to have challenged at least 1 of the elite four. Congrats Emerald Goblin.
For those of you challenging Brains from Crystalline Guard, the easiest way to find us is by joining our Channel #Crystalline Guard on PO.
We always meet up there and some of the Brains from the other clans stop by there as well.
