johnny_faneca's speciality lied in his exceptional level of skill rather than the ability to innovate current runs. His usual method of taking over highscores was to copy the current 0th, and simply make it better. His skill level allowed him to succeed most of the time.
On 13 March 2007, he became the first player ever to reach 70000 seconds of Total Level Score.
Johnny was awarded with the Dronie for Player of the Year for his performance on the year 2006.
At one point, johnny changed his name in the N highscores to Vers la Flamme, but after pressure from other highscorers, he stopped using "Vers la Flamme", although some runs he submitted using "Vers la Flamme" still appear on the highscore charts.
Furthermore, he's very well known for his vast number of accusations of cheating against various players. It's true that he was right with most cheaters, but that's not hard when you're accusing mostly new highscorers during his time. He successfully accused cheaters such as kryX-orange, naem and crappitrash, but he also accussed many legit members (whose legitimacy has been proven with methods such as NReality), including the 2 following grandmasters, Mr_Lim and xaelar, and some other players, such as Pheidippides.
He was ranked 2nd on ska's list of most influential N players of all time.
