1) Complete player, ZeRo4 never had glaring weakness in his game like a lot of top players in early quake. He had the movement,timing,aim the complete package.He also competed at the highest level in CTF and TDM.
2) Longevity, ZeRo4 was competing back in the earliest days of Quake 3 Arena Fat,Makaveli
and in the middle with players like cooller,czm and toward the end of quake 3 with the emergence of Cypher. He also maintained a high level of play into Quake Live and he probably could still
win at the highest level in Quake Live. While he never peaked as high as CZM did, I think the
amount of time he had in his reign surpasses CZM extremely high peak.
3)Lan presence, Very few lans ZeRo4 Attended he did not place very respectable. ZeRo4 was like
Mike Tyson in his prime everyone feared him before the game even started. This is ZeRo4 not
an average quake player all though he did lose that later in his career especially in Quake Live.
4)Prize Money, Due to most of his domination being in the peak of quake 3 where first places
brought 25k. He has won an incredible amount of money on just quake alone.
5)Triple Crown, He will be the only player ever that has won QuakeCon,World Cyber games and
CPL world championships.
6)QuakeCon, Arguably the biggest stage in quake
3 First place finishes in duel
2 Second place finishes in duel
1 First place CTF
2 Second place CTF
Combine all this into one of the games best personalities who wasn't afraid to talk trash
to his opponents and you have the one true quake legend.
