Reading his bios would show that he was not exactly extraordinary in power, nor the best in integrity, attitudes and behaviour. Compared to the exploits of Deng Ai or Zhuge Liang, Guan Yu paled in comparison. Nevertheless, since he could be one of the better generals of Shu and trusted by Liu Bei, he was given the responsibility to guard Jing Zhou.

Saying Guan Yu's exploits pale in comparison to Zhuge's might be true(That isn't saying much though), but then you say he was possiblly the best general in Shu. No way, Guan Yu pales in to comparison to generals like Wei Yan or Zhang Fei. Also I believe either of those two generals would have better battle tactics and more success then Zhuge Liang. And yes I do disagree that Guan Yu was an above average general of his time. He was a useless and arrogant general.
TheGreatNads wrote:Actually, considering he was the brother of the ruler of Shu, I would imagine it not being difficult for Guan Yu to get a high rank. Everyone keeps mentioning Jing Zhou even though Guan Yu lost it. It all comes down to what he acomplished, and that wasn't very much.
