There was a time when PROTOSS was a mighty force and everyone feared the might of Aiur, a time when playgrrrr's turtle carriers would destroy terran opponents, a time when Garimto's mass units could overcome the micro of the mighty emperor 'Boxer', a time when Nal_ra could destroy terran and zerg alike with scout openings ,a time when Bisu's corsairs would eat the overlords of all zergs, but my friends it's not this day! Today the pride of Aiur is in tatters, our greatest pride is that none of us were implicated in the match fixing scandal. Flash and Jaedong have destroyed all protoss in their path and ravaged their babies with 80%'ish winrates. Our main hopes today are that one day Kal will not choke or Bisu's PvT will one day improve, but it all seems so far away.
Let us now bask in memories past and choose the greatest protoss.
My poll will include the players I feel deserve inclusion, some people may not agree, there will be no IntoTheRainbow's, Foru's or Nazgul's here.
I voted for Nal_ra, because I felt he had a unique playstyle and many special builds. He could Macro it up, Cheese it up and had good micro. In general a very intelligent player.
I was torn because Saft was the player who taught me to carrier cheese and it has given me wins even over A-ranked terran-players on the old-pgtour. Had he gone to Korea, he would have been a success.
On the other hand, Garimto always was an interesting player and managed to dethrone the emperor! Plus there was a lot of speculation about him being involved with the mafia after his OSL final where he sadly retired.
The rivalry I enjoyed the most was probably Reach vs Oov and reach's style was very 'manly', with hordes of zealots charging into mines like there was no tomorrow.
Bisu also deserves a mention for being the most succesfull toss ever and being the only protoss to overcome the 'Evil Savior' as well as breaking ZvP imba for a period of time.
