what i said in that thread was
MadRabbit was the co-leader of Vanguard and possibly the best LD in the USA. He stopped playing competitively before classic came out, but his demos from base and base++ days are all hi quality stuff.
proj is correct in noting that homerpf, the endless and sterIO were all of incredible ld stature. I have always thought harn played incredibly too. As for Proj himself he was definitely pretty good but his endless self-felating gets old and while he is a player of great skill, he should learn that a player without humility is never the best.
I was implying that MR was one of the best in the US during base and ++, based only on the demos I've seen. If someone can furnish me with better base/++ LD demos from US players I'd be happy to be shown how wrong I was. That I added possibly to my quote should have been enough to stop a "who was the best" clusterfek.
As an aside I was watching a very early classic match between R and A and saw MR playing on A.... only on that one match... anyone know why he stopped?
