The fact that the TDs of Eliters keep things running smooth is an asset. I became a TD to help give back everything that eliters has given me. God bless you for starting this fantastic league." Elsie (darkangel_110)
- "The pages of Eliters are very easy to navigate. The professionalism of the administration is way above other leagues, as they seek to make Eliters the best it can be." Felix (felix8138)
