windy seemingly came out of nowhere and was one of the best for a while and before winning that big tourny (cant remmeber which without looking it up), no one really knew about him at all. tim is good now but no way can i put him ahead of iori. and i remember black_bear being considered one of the best by many chinese/asian players back in zone times. bt4 rox too. so many top chinese players
Does vg_paladin still play? Really loved his gameplay during Tribal Wars but haven't seen much of him since. Really intriguing player who I thought was on the cusp of taking the next step but maybe he was just a nomad-centic player (?)
Yeah but in BCC he wasnt even that good in ara, i didnt vote him because he have some really strong years (2004-2005) but then he dissapointed me a bit. He never did so good in tourneys either. I never liked his rush much because it was only skill based, there was no brain or imagination on it, but sure it was very very hard to stop anyway. I think he is a bit overrated because his most popular recs are were he wins, same happens with me haha
When you consider best chinese arabia player, I would definintely say Air_feeling. In one tournament(2006-2008) he beat Daut,Chris, Ding, Tim, IORI and Ding(in 20th minute) on arabia and many other players. And tell me who was monster that time lol.
