@dbzk1999: It seems that way, but Haytham was the Grandmaster Templar. He seemed pretty determined to achieve his goals, he never really displayed feelings toward Connor. With that said, Haytham also never seemed suicidal and it never looked that way if we base it off the game.
Even though I agree that Connor is a superior free runner due to having the skill to perform feats of navigating through trees and climbing cliff faces, I hardly think its reasonable to dismiss the majority of Ezio's feats. If the people he ran off against have off panel history then its still a remarkable feat for Ezio. The carnival, for example, they don't have feats, but there was clearly a time record to beat and Ezio beat it. He also beat agile guards (who are faster than Ezio) at a game of capture the flag. Climbing up the Colosseum at record breaking time, is a feat. Ezio was breaking records left and right. Dismissing it as unimpressive just shows bias.
@swils94: Bourne did have resources - that's the point, he acquired them through any means necessary and killed the best trained assassins / killers in the world. Hit-Girl beat up relatively well trained (and that's an if) gangsters. Bourne is much more tactical - and it's clear that he faced a higher level threat, he had no choice but to be a master strategist.
Wait what kind of scenario are we thinking of here? I was generally thinking of a fight considering the battle forum rules. But you seem to have a scenario where they're tracking each other and gives Bourne a chance to acquire gear and prep, basically.
@frozen: Bourne had no recourses. Ever notice that the majority of the trilogy was all him improvising? Bourne has no gear. Anything goes, I guess the Kick Ass comics can be implemented here too. Way too broad of a rule.
