Tomi was sick in his prime. He even took a long break and got a few rank 1's when he came back in 2009 and then again in 2014 when a few other top players were still competing. I think overall, he's proven that he should be considered the best ever. Oldschool era newschool era, still managed to be at the top of the ladder.

You can't really argue against this. Whether others have had rank 1's or not, he's dominated the ladder vs the best there ever was and those who were deemed the best in this era.
