None of you win; I am the only victor.

I using it in the adjective form, not the proper noun form. Therefor I win for my extremely keen grasp of grammar.

You lose now because:
1- I post
2- even in your sentence victor is a noun. A common noun as opposed to proper noun, but noun nonetheless. So your grasp of grammar is not so keen sorry to disapoint you.

Actually, in both cases Victor would be a noun, as a adjective is a noun modifier as in , I am undisputed victor. Undisputed is the adj, victor is the noun. Adj are unable to stand alone in a sentence.

YEp I beat you and now Elex has retreated for ego stroking before his next attempt at claiming victory. A short lived once again as have been all precedent attempt. By everyone, not only by him though. This is why I do not claim victory, but only at best a temporary pride of being ahead of the pack before fallng in mass anonymity.
