They choose to go with a different list.
We think many things are good, but we don't know which all are actually good; and even of the ones that are actually good, which are relatively better. Some are meta dependent, some are meta resilient. And, we had no idea what the meta even is/was. (Still don't - we'll make fuzzy projections, but one tournament does not a meta make).
People made choices based on projections, and preferences on what they wanted to play. It doesn't mean we think vader is bad (he's pretty good), but it also doesn't mean we think he's the end-all of good ships (Like, I, personally, am not a big vader fan in terms of wanting to play him, but think he's still quite good).
The one thing we can agree on, however, is wedge is not some weird super monster that scares all ships below him (im not scrolling to see if you made that argument, but odds are, you didn't).
