Best Lost Saga Players of All Time List
Lost Saga Famous Players List
NALS - North American Lost Saga

I'm an old player since OGP days and seen it all. Though I never made a name for myself I watched as different players and guilds struggled to be #1. Some of the people on this list may surprise you because not everyone followed the competitive scene. Many of the top players were interconnected in some form whether as friends or guild mates.

Every Lost Saga player knows the game officially began to die in 2014. This list will only list the players who had the largest impact on North American Lost Saga from 2009-2014. The following years don't matter because the game went downhill from there.
2009-2014 were the golden years of North American Lost Saga.

The first major test of skill in NALS came about when the Elite Tournament feature was released. Unfortunately the tournament didn't put everyone on equal footing because boosted stats were still allowed, but it revealed a lot about who the top players in North America really were.

Criteria:
1. Skill
2. Influence on the Lost Saga game/community
3. Must be known during 2009-2014 era, when the game mattered
