That doesn't work in fighting games. If someone stops playing they're no longer "the best". You can't be the best at something you don't do. You could probably get away with x had the most skill with x character for that time period. Just like no one still considers weiss the best seph anymore.
@tenkai, garuga doesn't play much anymore. Your best bet would be to hit him up with a vm or just use the US ahp.
You could have at least stated "the case" instead of quoting my entire post and giving a vague response. If you think ehx is and always will be the best even though he hasn't played in months and will never play again, ill let your own thoughts hold you back.
