- Dogs are allowed to eat any engineer. Watch out for dogs!
- You may “Alt” your tanks onto your opponent’s War Factory and Ore Refinery. However, you cannot continuously alt to prevent tanks from coming out of the war factory.

- Always respect other players! Do not overly use taunt to bother your opponent.
- At last, please TURN YOUR TRAINER OFF if you have one!!! In each game, the referee will ask you to take a screenshot. If you win the game, but do not have the screenshot, the win will not count.

Marko, or the Captain of XWIS, came on the scene from nowhere in 2006 and started crushing everyone- - and i mean everyone. He quickly climbed to the top winning rank 1 after rank 1.

Latof the Deso King
Latof has only lost 4 series since 2014, single handily sculpting modern XWIS gameplay in the process with his unique deso-centric bind sytle. If you’re unlucky enough though, he will use his unsettling Korea just for his own amusement. It is said that his chilling psychological aura of pure focus can be felt through the computer screen during the post-game lobby.
An ancient allied player consistently among the top rankings with several rank 1 finishes of his own. Having a PhD in America vs Iraq, "Sir Marshall" AKA "The allied hope" AKA "VoZ" has popularized several now common allied approaches including the mirage-spy defense as well as the mass rockies defense -- highly unpredictable player.

Tim aka "n44bj" is easily in the running for the #3 player ever; always lingering around the top of the ladder, giving the best players a headache in every game. This soviet player has no weakness besides boredom from being so dominant with many rank 1s and an XWIS tournament Grand final appearance to go with it.
