[[Image:Ace.jpg|thumb|Rayan "Perfect Ace" Isran]]
     −
'''Rayan "Perfect Ace" Isran''' was 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 achieving 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 Perfect Dark and 4th in Goldeneye; 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 [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jn_9wYRqIss 1:06], [[Maian]] Perfect Agent [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=28XJYi08EnA 2:02] and an outrageous [[G5]] sweep of 0:37/0:41/0:52.

During the fall 2007 - late winter of 2008, Rayan went on to get many great records in [[Goldeneye]]. Among these were, of particular interest, [[Frigate]] 00 Agent [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ujAhybvkkug 1:08] (3 seconds untied at the time), Secret Agent [http://thengamer.com/GE/07-Frigate/Rayan%20Isran%20-%20Frigate%20Secret%20Agent%201.02.wmv 1:02], Agent [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VAXY1ubQOCs 0:23], [[Train]] Secret Agent [http://thengamer.com/GE/14-Train/Rayan%20Isran%20-%20Train%20Secret%20Agent%201.25.wmv 1:25], and a sweep on [[Aztec]] with 1:31/1:38/1:40 (3 seconds untied at the time). Eventually [[Patrik Nilsson]] sent him an [[NTSC]] copy of Goldeneye, and he was able to get many World Records, including [[Streets]] 00 Agent [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4vRJ_nA6F5w 1:55], [[Bunker 2]] Secret Agent [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mMDWzGiJ6gU 0:46], [[Silo]] 1:02/1:10/1:23 and [[Control]] 3:59/4:07/4:11.

== Dual Championship Reign ==
  −
  −
After officially becoming the Elite's third Dual Champ in June of 2008, Rayan had this to say:
  −
  −
<i>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!</i>

In July/early August 2008, Rayan later left the Elite unannounced and his Reign ended on 10/31/08, beaten by David Clemens (Goldeneye).

== 2010 Return ==
  −
  −
In mid January 2010, a little over a year and a half after he had left the Elite, Rayan returned although he only made an appearance on AIM from time to time. In mid February 2010, Rayan picked up his N64 again and intrigued by the new [[Defense]] Strat, started to play [[Perfect Dark]] again. Within about a month, he managed to nab many impressive World Records such as [[Infiltration]] Special Agent [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ekENEOmPuZI 1:29], [[Investigation]] Agent [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5mR0RMKnxjM 1:27]], [[Air Force One]] Perfect Agent [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dJCCIpcoIbo 1:26], [[Maian SOS]] Special Agent [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=naHsMLq7D44 1:53] and subsequently he regained his title as [[Perfect Dark]] Champion.
  −
  −
In early April, realizing that Perfect Dark had become dead, Rayan moved onto Goldeneye and achieved many great World Records such as [[Facility]] 0:44/0:53/0:53, [[Depot]] Agent [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lGlXY4HT_9s 0:25], [[Train]] 00 Agent [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CxBgeEIoa_s 1:51], [[Control]] Agent [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mjjxjFs2r0c 3:58], 00 Agent [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aj8ozvCNLIc 4:09], [[Cradle]] Secret Agent [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q3bxBqXfaMQ 0:35] and many others. Within about 2 months, he became [[Goldeneye]] Champion again. However, after about a week he was dethroned by [[David Clemens]].
  −
  −
In August 2010, after achieving [[Runway]] 00 Agent [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xnl0k7h8VPo 0:37], Rayan quit playing [[Goldeneye]] and [[Perfect Dark]] and later left [[the Elite]] within about 3 months.
  −
  −
Nowadays he still visits [http://elite.speedrunwiki.com/forum/index.php the boards] occasionally and has gotten a few new PRs although he has been having problems with providing legitimate proof.
  −
== Trivia ==
  −
  −
- Rayan still has one PR which was achieved with 1.3: [[Bunker 2]] 00 Agent [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xmW5IT-85-4 0:58], achieved in early February 2007.
