It would be nearly impossible to determine an all-time best since they played at different times and not all against each other. Would be neat if you could get all the best players over the years to face off. Would someone who was 2001's best stand a chance against even an average 2018 player?
No one today's even heard of many of these, much less seen them play, even if their names went down as W2 legend.
Do any replays exist of the old top players? I'm actually kinda curious now to see how good they were compared to today's.
Also some people play only GOW and some play variety. Variety player to me always >>> one pud wonder.
Also another rare skill seen in some pros is the ability to play blind (start in an unknown, unfamiliar, unseen) map and still excel, showing tremendous adaptibility.
Braviet and u8 both have been variety map players and have played brand new maps, so I'll vote if braviet is added. And any of our votes are pretty meaningless over the course of the 20+ years of the game since I admittedly have never seen most of these people play and haven't even heard of many of them.
