You may not have tried to start a debate but others did so anyway.I did some Averaging of pros and cons of methods..
i started with ZZ v EOcross v Petrus
i now think petrus can deffinitly be sub 8
I than Did Leor v Petrus
and leor got 7 petrus got 8
(it was just two so it was diff numbers.)
Catagories i looked into for this
it was pretty basic but i just wanted an overview and i'm glad i chose petrus because it seems to have slightly more potential than ZZ
im not trying to start a method debate and this is not fact, its just what i've observed possible.
I’m not going to enter into this since it seems kind of pointless. All methods realistically have the same potential until WR standards, and even then we have not reached method limits. And I doubt most people will be WR standard by the end of their cubing career, so you should be picking methods based on how much you enjoy solving with it
