Who is the best player ever?

Recommended Posts

8 hours ago, Andy. said:


All you guys are doing is name dropping old players that were good at the time, you are looking through nostalgia glasses, they were never at the level of play that people are at now.

None of those old players mentioned would be much of a challenge for any top player now, they certainly wouldn't be competing for rank 1, same goes for Tomi.

You're saying nobody cares who was good, all that matters is now.

Let's say Andy (cncnet) and Peachy (xwis) are the best players around now. Personally, i will still picture you the same way. I dont remember ever losing to you or peachy before, and even if you did get better over time, that picturing will stay. Same if Tomi was bad nowadays, the legend picture stays anyways. 

Now let's pretend somebody cares about the current top 18-yrs-old ra2 player. Let's say somebody does... That person should feel lonely.. in front of millions of ppl who care about pro gamers like fortnite's ninja, making over 500 000$ per month. Oh yeah.. Andy is popular.. Marko the Wacko aswell.. for sure..

Well Tomi dominated when there were, quite literally, 100,000s, playing the game. Nowadays we a looking at about 20 people playing the ladder. LOL!

 it was for YEARS too, man!  It was very clear that he was miles ahead of whoever rank 2 fluctuated between. "Mr rank 1" ffs! 

Not just that... it was the way in which he won. Cant explain it, sadly. Gotta experience that shit first-hand. 

 

In terms of biggest skill gap/longest reign Tomi is the best of all time. 

 

In terms of playtime-absolute skill ratio, id say sammo is the best ever. 

 

In terms of absolute skill id say marko is the best player ever. 

 

You could try to also make a case for moon3, but I think it fails. Again, it would take 10 pages to explain why. 

 

tomi and marko for 1v1

sammo for 2v2 

I just put more weight on 2v2 cuz ive always viewed it as the "true competitive format" for this game.

Good analysis as always. Tomi was truly remarkable as many of us know! If nothing else -- it's simply a numbers game... 100,000's of then vs. the few 100 now. It's just not comparable. No matter what someone does now, they'll never be able to take that status away, unless of course the game balloons into the 10,000's++ again.

Never in XWIS history did they have more than 1000 players active (1000 being generous) and more than half didn't play QM.

And I believe I had the most points in XWIS YR history (YR) at 1380 in March 2009 a month where Tim, Prep, Dean, Kris were all in the top 10 and 3 of us had 1000+ that month.

So how was Tomis time more active and dominant when no one on YR had even gotten 1000 prior to 2008?

I played this game since 2011 and I personally believe  the best player and the toughest one is latof, he's extremely tough yet skilled with unbelievable defense skills.

Basically latof was extremely good 1v1 and 2v2 (played Vs and With him so many times so I can tell ) no one ever since i joined xwis beat latof a single series (bo9) except marko and tim. Also he's unlike marko who sux at 2v2s. (99% of the players nowadays if you defeat their rush you'd pretty much win the game but if you could beat latof's desos then you would win the game)

that picture was in my mind until I saw The God " moon3 " and let's be realistic he's the god himself of this game IMO. just check out his videos in youtube.

there are moments in ra2/Yr where you can tell from observing some games that it's a 100% lose and then it's a WIN. Thats work for moon3

The bottom line is ( 1st moon3 , 2nd Latof )

Tomi didn't just play on XWIS dude. Tomi had at least 3 rank 1's when the game was in it's true booming state on WOL. That's when 100,000's were on. Also, Tomi had the most points in history of the game at 1499 on Ra2 if I recall. There's just nothing he hasn't done when it comes to both ra2 and yr. (Another reason why he is so valuable as he conquered both games with equal domination).

That's cool but WOL wasn't even remotely regulated, everyone was cheating, ladder hacking etc. But if he was truly great he would have  gotten 1501 points on YR instead of noob bashing in tourney games for +2 point games. to get 1499 on ra2 which doesn't matter since they didn't have badges.

I remember Tomi could beat me 2 tanks vs 5, he clicked every where like a god. Rumors said he had high tech equipment, but the skills are amazing still. Tomi did have something in common with marko and all others tops: he sucked big times on naval maps, cried every time the map would pop up.

I dont think who is second best player matters, because there's a long way between that person and Tomi.

If you lost 2 tanks to 5 then you are just horrible. Like really horrible. I've 1v1'd Tomi many times and he was not very hard, and free win in 2v2. And he bailed a TON. You dunno wtf ur talking about. Ur just a fanboy that saw he got a bunch of rank 1s. There is a difference between being the best and having the most ranks etc. I always went into a series vs Tomi thinking I would win it. Against Marko 1v1 I would assume he would win most series. Against latof I basically knew he would win each series. I just tried to pick up 2-3 wins etc =]

 

Sam was great. I don't mind his name being mentioned. Did tons of 2v2 cm's vs him and his allies were very nice. Sov was good too tho. He was basically = to me when he had not been as active. So I'm sure he was a bit better when he was very active. 

 

Andy person...you are only good with Yuri bro....no1 cares about you...U weak....

Even though I am better than you with any country, what would it matter if you can't even take a game off my Yuri?

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.

He was playing like once every 3 months and was still about as good as me or you when we were practically no-lifing it lmfao.  (and we were ~ "the best" 2v2ers at the time)

Sam really was that good

Yeah in regards with tomi his list of ranks just speaks for itself... no one has anything near it when consideting both ra2 and yuris and across different eras. 

 

In regards to wols regulation... it was actually well regulated for the first year or so when tomi was dominating.

 

tomis brother ante was also quite good

Just some random pic I made of me rank 1 on xwis 6 times since 2007, then just recently in July, on cnc net for the 7th time. Top 10 many other times as well. I played Tomi's yuri and allied back in 2008 in qm and always won, although he was good with sovs and ra2. Frank aka lucifier I never remember playing you in qms you shouldn't talk smack because you never played in competitive ladder against me, and if you did, you would never pass me. I wouldn't be so proud if I was you.

ill dispel some of the misinformation on this topic

 

--sunny is a 20-0 for any of the real-deals. He's actually a typical, standard, every day scrubberdubbery. 

--moon3 isn't that good. Explaining why is beyond the scope of this forum.

now there's a  real name ma' boysss.  

If you have never played vs sammo in a 2v2 ranked game then you are not eligible to have an opinion worth dickery-dippin-shit on this subject l0l 

if you including 2v2s then how can you forget paf lol ? 

He mastered his shits very well, especially going air and stuff l0l

Me? A fan of Tomi? lol!! I am a fan of no one. I'm not impressed by anybody on this planet. Specially gamers. 

But i am smart enough to recognize he was the best ever, much better than random ppl i've never even heard about (like you).

I did not SEE he had a bunch of rank 1s. I could actually FEEL it, being very active in the Tomi era.

Just beat your Yuri in QM yesterday actually. Oops. And if you want to 1v1 me with sov/allies on stream to prove that lez go? I asked you this while we were in the same game last month tho and you ran away. You already know I would humiliate you

When i look at sunnys resume i see a one trick pony (yuri). A handful of rank ones past tge prime years of the game on yr xwis.

when i look at andys resume i see a similiar outcome with a bit more emphasis on allies. A handful of rank ones past the prime years of the game on yr xwis.

when i look at tomis resume i see an abundance of rank ones across both games with any faction during the primes of the game and many years after on both yr and ra2 xwis and even yr wol.

i mean its not even comparible and this isnt even based off anyones personal opinions. The stats dont lie here...

 

the only one close to tomi is marko but the thing that holds him back is that he wasnt around during the primes... nonetheless an argument can be made for marko to be goat based on stats

Basing rank 1 values on what you think was the prime of the game is kind of hilarious.

As the saying goes practice makes perfect and the same applies to the game, the more you play you become better at knowing the maps, unit micro and macros. the prime of players should definitely start at around 2006 or so. 2004-2005 a few people just started coming back on xwis because wol was full of bots for a while and many had quit and were rusty when coming back to xwis.

I played YR xwis since it started in early 2004, there were less players that year until 2006 and 2007 when I saw the most people in qm and custom game. I was top 5 with allies in 2005 after just using the side for a month in ranked games on xwis when the server pretty much was up for only a year, which you consider the ''prime time'' in yuri? (even though it wasn't) and I personally didn't even use the yr faction until 2006 or so. Only in 2006 -2007, the better and more challenging soviet players started appearing such as Kris, marko, andy, dean which was the the beginning of the real prime. These guys will give you trouble in qm. I can understand there were more skilled sov players on ra2 during the xwis years but most of those guys never played ranked on yuris except for a few.
