Couldn't help but point this out. Glad to see we're sticking with our classic 1-or-more-typos quota here. :tongue:

Much respect for TYR! Eating those 60 chips in one night was amazing to watch.

 

PS: The links on the names are for the [T-D] people you interviewed not TYR...

Don't tell the office that, they still haven't let me down for only having an IS-7 (after its awesome reign) as a tier X for a while

Tyr is the god that makes the gods Armor and weapons. Not the god of war but the god of weapons and crafting. Anyways I have lots of respect for TYR they seem to be solid.
