Maybe peak Deadman was better than peak FSG, but FSG is one of the absolute best in the game now and Deadman is mostly retired. I tend to value more recent ability because I think in general the playerbase has gotten better over time.
You could make a very sound argument for Deadman being the best player ever. Fivestargeneral is a sad little boy who watches k dramas all day and only has 1 gold trophy. There is no comparison between the two. You could perhaps make an argument that FSG is the best active American, although I think it's fairly even between him Pardon and Octane. Octane probably edges it though because he's in FCC.
