Rayan "Perfect Ace" Isran

Rayan "Perfect Ace" Isran is currently the third Dual Champion in the history of The Elite.

Introduction to the Elite

Rayan first found The Elite in 2002 at the age of 7, but his lack of confidence prevented him from joining. In the summer of 2005 he picked up a copy of Perfect Dark and one month later contacted Ryan Dwyer who added him to the rankings.

WAR! 0:25

Shortly thereafter Rayan shocked everyone by tying what was considered one of the best (if not the best) Perfect Dark Agent World Record at the time, WAR! 0:25. Whilst video proof was supplied, being the youngest Eliter ever and claiming to reign from Pakistan, many suspicions were aroused over Rayan's legitimacy. The doubters were silenced when, in what is now one of the most infamous moments in Elite history, he subsequently produced a short film which showed what appeared to be him playing WAR! Agent and acheiving a time of 0:26.

Early Career

Rayan's excellent play on WAR! was only a sign of things to come in the future. He continued to play Perfect Dark and in early 2006 became the first PAL player to reach the top 10 since Phil Hughes in 2002.

Rayan then moved over to Goldeneye which he played for a largely uneventful year, ultimately reaching into the Top 25 by the end of 2006. In 2007 he pushed on at an incredible pace. In February Rayan achieved what was regarded as one of the best untied sweeps ever on Train, with records 1:01/1:26/1:52. He then switched between Goldeneye and Perfect Dark for almost a year, finally plateauing at 3rd in PD and 4th in GE; highly commendable rankings for playing only on a PAL system.

NTSC Arrives

Due to his incapability of buying an NTSC system with Goldeneye and Perfect Dark, generous eliters Max Bout and Hugo van der Wolk sent him an NTSC system with Perfect Dark on December 2nd 2007. 17 days later, Rayan released 24 World Records, which immediately made him the World Champion. He continued to play Perfect Dark and completed such amazing untieds as Villa Agent 1:06, Maian Perfect Agent 2:02 and an outrageous G5 sweep of 0:37/0:41/0:52.

After observing this destruction, Patrik Nilsson sent Rayan an NTSC copy of Goldeneye. He went on to obtain many PRs and great untied world records including Train Secret Agent 1:25, Aztec 00 Agent 1:40, Frigate 00A 1:08, Silo 00A 1:23 and he tied what was then considered the best World Record in either game, Silo Secret Agent 1:10. In the course of this rampage, he overtook Bryan Bosshardt and Ilari Pekkala to claim 2nd place in the rankings, behind David Clemens.

Dual Championship Reign

After officially becoming the Elite's third Dual Champ in June of 2008, Rayan had this to say:

I'd never thought in my whole speedrunning career I'd ever make it first in both games. It all started back in 2002 when I first touched the N64 system, when I was only 7! At that time, I never even thought of joining the elite, I just used to browse the pages and watch the videos for enjoyment.

Back when I joined in September 2005, I remember asking a lot of annoying question from Ryan Dwyer, and most of the other eliters as well. It's been nearly 3 years since I joined, and it took me about the same amount of time Bryan took to become Dual Champ.

I'd like to thank a lot of people who really helped and encouraged me to continue to play all the time. I needed a lot of help from most of the GE/PD videos, and thank the top players and their videos which helped me to learn the WR strats, especially Ryan Dwyer. I still think they are really good at both games, but have been quite inactive since the past couple of years.

I'd like to thank all the top GE players, Bryan, David, Wouter, Ilari, Dan, Alex, Henrik, Henning, Patrik and even Ryan although he's usually against me in GE competition. I'd also like to thank PD players, Otto, Max, Carathorn and Matt for helping me a lot. I also have to thank Glen, Leonardo, Guialberto, Eddie, Axel and all those players who encouraged me to play. I'd like to give a special thanks to Octo for helping me out with my proof issues, and Max and Hugo for sending me an NTSC + PD NTSC and Patrik for sending me a GE NTSC, which greatly increased my speed to become Dual Champ.

It's a really great pleasure to be on the elite. A lot of things helped to PR quickly, especially new ideas and strats that came out lately. I really enjoy playing GE and PD, and hope for a good, long reign. Thanks a lot, everyone!
