CHEF, can you respond to this as opposed to slurring "ban" and "troll" to whoever disagrees with ya? How many ATG HWs are on your personal list that don't have a single
A-level scalp on their resume? What are your criteria? Mine are:
- Resume (far and ahead the most important and Wlad lacks terribly in this department compared to others)
- Longevity (Wlad shines here, no question about it)
- Skills (I find him to be terribly limited but his jab-right-hand combo is pretty ****ing devastating and executed perfectly)
- Losses (terrible losses and he only ever avenged one against an aged opponent who slew him when he was younger)
