That's true. Back in 2005-06, there are at least 4-5 players (except LD of course) who are at the same level as today's LCW: TH, PG, CH, LHI, LCW.
In fact, at any given time before 2006, there were always around 4 players at a level no lower than today's LCW. For example, in 2000, we have SJ, PG, Hendrawan, TH, and arguably XXZ.
Put today's LD to any year before 2006, it is possible that he still can maintain an advantageous H2H against any opponent, but at the same time he would lose more (for example, put today's LD back to 2006, even if he loses only one match to each of the top opponents, he would lose a total of 5 -- in fact, very close to what actually happened in 2006) and does not look so invincible.

Here is the proof derivation:
9999999999999999999999999999999999999999999! x 0 chance still = 0

Unfortunately you missed my point again. Maybe you should get a pair of eyeglasses or something?
I am not arguing that LD is not the current best player. I even agree that he can still be the best player should he be "transported" to any era. My whole point is, the "invincibility" LD fans claim is mostly due to the lack of strong opponents. As the H2H of LD vs LCW clearly shows no change starting 2008.
Btw, if there are 10000 LCW, then LD needs to fight a LCW in every round, and suppose other LCWs give walkover to each other, LD will be in deep deep trouble.

1. LD can and do chooses his tournaments, he doesn't need to play every tournament to prove himself anymore. Having 10000 lcw clones doesn't change the hierarchy
2. LD does hand out donations once in a while

Did you sleep well last night? Seems your ability to understand is a bit weak today...
In any one tournament chosen by LD, LD will meet a LCW clone from the very first round, and at the same time the other LCWs are giving walk-overs to one another. Unless you think LD has infinite stamina (which, LD himself obviously disagree), you should agree with my conclusion: LD in deep trouble.

It's not true that LD is "playing at his base". In the 2nd game there are many many clears, you cannot stay at your base and return a clear, right? The reason you have that impression is LD's quick returning to his base.
I never said LD was in danger of losing. I never said LD was 100% in it either. All I said was, suppose LD was facing an opponent who can "up the pace" all the time (an example is himself in 2004), he may be in trouble. In fact, my opinion is that, the reason why PG did better against LD than JOJ or Persson, is that PG has the ability to "up the pace" once in a while.
