he was definitely yonkou commander lvl. I think his clash with aokiji was meant to portray that. He drew against jinbei years before he died. Its safe to say he was a lot stronger during the war. Honestly Ace has never shown us any reason for us to think he was weak. So why are u saying he wasnt yonkou commander lvl?
I also believe he got stronger after fighting jimbe but my point is that maybe his promotion was a bit premature.
I started to look at power levels in terms of how resourceful characters really are. Seeing how the weakest commander POST ts, cracker, was so adamant about armour that negated durability which doomed him, I started to question how well rounded was ace. Could he adapt to different fighting styles or would he always go for that mid range fight.
Believe it or not bounties represent danger and strength. Ace had his bounty at 550m for a reason. Obviously he would give them a fight but win is something that doesn't cross my mind. He was the weakest commander we saw in the series.
My point is that if he was commander lvl he was right at the border.
