I don't want to refer to their position in the list, but i am really happy to see TLR and Lanksy only now and so close to each other on top of that. (But please keep in mind that i can only judge these two from what i could see from videos and matches, so i can't "judge" their personalities at all pretty much.)
Rooting mostly for the "froyo" teams and the teamnames before, i remember TLR as a damn scary soldier (and a pain in the ass who would way too often beat my favorite team...). Can't really hate anybody though, so i just sobbed whenever mix^ won and tried to be happy for them instead. Can't describe how fun it was then, to be able to have him on my favorite team during his time with froyo. In terms of pocket soldiers he's definitely one of the earlierst i would mention if asked to name iconic ones.
And then there is Lanksy. That guy on his own made pocket soldier the dream of many people, i'm sure (no, i'm not, but at least for me it worked). He was so fun to watch and also just blew my mind by how he played pocket (i think he started the "gunboats depending on situation" trend..?). On top of that, the shade Vlogs - i'm honestly not sure if i should enjoy them as much as i do, because i'm still not certain shade was not legit bullying him sometimes and he was super uncomfortable, but i HOPE it was all in good fun and spirits. I also hope that's not a bad thing to say, but Lansky (to me) started as some kid coming in to play some god tier TF2 and he left maybe way too early, because i think he could've cemented himself as the best soldier in the history of this game.
