A certain sword stole his heart. (how can any woman compare to the sexiness of the Black March?) Or maybe he has unresolved issues with a certain woman that tried to kill him that are currently preventing him from looking at women that way.
If there is a fight between yuris team and Fugs unit to kill her i am more interested in seeing what really Evan can do rather than Yuri.
HE is the most dangerous and most powerful guy in Yuris team or what ever it was she took to visit Baam.
People talking about Yuri causing a scene at the Tournament... A Family Head will most likely pop in at some point during the Tournament, I doubt Yuri could defeat any of them. Basically this Tournament is a massive convergence of powers. You have all the top notch regulars who will meet up, and you have FUG/Wing Tree/A Family Head/Workshop people.
Are you saying taht there is a meek chance that Urek is weaker than yuri? ie their rank differ but if it doesnt necessarily reflect power then there is a meek chance right?
I admit if anyones ranking is sth like say 200 and another guy whose ranking is say 195 the power difference might not be so much.
Evans ranking and yuris ranking differs by more than a 100 rank.
Thats substantial proof enough to say that he is stronger. If there are any proof otherwise i dont see HOW any one can conclude it otherwise.

There's the influence factor, SIU stated this himself. Some guy at the late 30 never fought in his life, Mazino best buddy is said to be strong... be he only got his ranking because of his power as the leader of Wingtree
Evan is a guide, he could have gotten his ranking by being the best guide in the tower instead of his battle power.
You clearly don't know the meaning of substantial proof then.

Out of his biggest feats, I pick Arie Hon's challenge - while not a ranker yet, he managed to push back the strongest (by ranking) family head. (That's how he got 77F, btw.)
The fact some have their ranking due to rare feats / specialization doesn't mean it applies to everyone. Urek is the prime example.

Don't only judge by the ranking number. We have quite a lot of background on other high rankers as well, so we can estimate the overall strength better. There's also the influence of a position (a light bearer or other support position would most likely not fare as well in close combat, not to mention guides).
Also, when the rankings are close, it's reasonable to consider the possibility of the presumably weaker char beating the stronger one, but with huge differences, there's no way. I can't imagine (the discussion starter) Yuri beating Mirchea, for example.

Looking back at the initial posts of this topic:
WTF would Evan, a guide, do in battle? He'd most likely be busy with self-defence if he got dragged into one... at least he's got the huge bag, so he doesn't have to watch out for attacks from the back
Yuri... yeah, she'd do damage. Not against the top members of FUG, but there are probably very little of those. Anyway, FUG is not as weak as to be beaten by a single Zahard princess and her team. Not if they're trying to take on the full might of Zahard's.
I was talking about his best buddy, Baekryun. It is said that he's the most gifted regular wave controller and he is strong. But it's also said that he never got in much fights, and his high ranking(TOP 10) comes more from his influence as the leader of the Wingtree than his battler ability
I'm sure Baekryun didn't get the ranking simply because of being the Wingtree's leader, though. While it may play a role, if just based on a few fights, he's famous as someone strong, then it must be a big deal as well. The real leader (more like a spiritual leader, as he doesn't seem like the type of guy to be interested in organization) of Wingtree is Urek, anyway
A sincere question, since several of you seem pretty convinced that Yuri is middling powerwise (among high rankers presumably). Could one of you point me to the chapter or blog post where her relative power level is discussed? (For example I would have put her in the tier below Urek, Phanta, Zahard, the stronger family heads, and the head of FUG. However she doesn't carry herself as one afraid of anybody, and she seems to have Urek running errands for her. And he doesn't strike me as someone who'd do that for just anybody.)
