1-Where is Jaedong? Ignorance, bliss? 2-Just because the writer hates Nal_rA, he puts him in the bottom? What? Hey I don't like IPX that much, I will put him in top 9!
3-Free[gm]. 4-Much[gm]. 5-Daezang.
3,4, and 5 not even getting a mention.
Did you even read all the comments? shut the fuck up and think about what the hell you write making him #9 is throwing a bone taking into consideration what he really did achieve over the last month or so

LOL how could anybody seriously say that prelims and ODT is harder than the Starleague- People have to go through them to get to Starleague LOL Oov is just struggling at the moment. as hard as ODT is- many go through them, but only a few wins it all-

Hm I get your point. It's harder to prepare for Prelims. And losses in Prelims are devastating. But still, winning it all I imagine is much harder to do. in terms of probability. The competition is just much tougher and that's obvious. Like Clon, he stormed through the Prelims but it's unlikely that he will win the Starleague you know

Hi. No one is denying ODT's difficulty. The problem is, someone who cannot make it through the ODT should not be amongst the top 10 in the world (save certain circumstances, which nal_ra doesn't qualify for -- example being Shinhan-1 OSL being a Protoss graveyard due to imbalanced maps). If he got dicked in 1 game and the other game was very very well played but he still lost 0-2, then maybe consider putting him in the top 10. But there are many, many, other players who *can* make it through ODT. Everything is taken into consideration, and given nal_ra's overall performance maybe he only deserves #9.
Personally I don't think he should even be on the list. Daezang and free[gm] are much more deserving. Much[gm] is a cheesy little bastard and not solid enough to say he can go far - but the pure numbers show good performance. Oh, and teSter[gm] should not be forgotten. Not saying he should be top 10, he shouldn't, but keep an eye out for him. Last ODT he had a tough break where he had to face GoRush in groups.

Daezang is very interesting as he looked dominating vs. Chojja and Mingu. We'll need to see him take on Aqua, though it's unfair to ask him to win two BO3's. But anywho Daezang also lost to free who crushed Oov- saw the prelim match and whew-free looked like the next big Toss, and then there's Tester who looked almost through at one point in his match against Yooi. However, as many have mentioned earlier, right now Jaedong is as good as anyone except maybe Savior. Heck Jaedong maybe even better than him in ZvZ (we may find out real soon). Xellos mentioned in his TV interview (Junmo's bad angle? was it?) he was baffled by his Prelim loss against Jaedong and that he's looking forward to face him in MSL. Can't wait for Friday's games!!!!!!!!

My literary critique: I like the idea of the list but I think the author should not try to add any humor as it only makes the writing more cumbersome without adding any value. Give the list and state the highlights of justification as concisely as possible. That said, I don't think this particular author is appropriate without at least adding an editor. DJEtterStyle has, from what I've read, only one voice in his writing and it's not appropriate for this task.
My response to the content: The glaring mistake I see is a lack of Goodfriend. In fact Goodfriend is mentioned only as a reference point for the worst in progaming. A review of his accomplishments and content of his games would warrant, at the very least, a "special mention" if not a place on the top 10.
