Wasn't it said that by the end of Assassin's Creed II that Ezio was already a better and deadlier assassin than Altair?

No. That was never said, Ezio himself envy's Altair.

Altair changed the Assassin Order the most, had the most influence basically. Without him, Ezio probably wouldn't be the Assassin he was able to become (Dual hidden blades etc.) It's a hard decision though.

I think not. Each member of the Order was able to somehow stand out from others. I do not think there is better. Do not forget the assassins of the Sanctuary, who made ​​history by assassinating people prominent in the Order.

Altair was the one that was above all in that Sanctuary.

Alta´r is considered the most "legendary Mentor" by those who came after him. However, we have far from explored the whole universe yet...

Altair is mentioned everywhere as changing the Assassin's, so yeah.

Alta´r is the greatest Assassin that we know of in the AC universe at present.

Ezio can't be called greater, since there's literally NOTHING he does that isn't either a stupid mistake, provided by Alta´r directly or at the very least, based on Alta´r's teachings.

He broke the Creed several times as a mentor...
Bravo.

Alta´r was born into the brotherhood, Ezio wasn't. Or at least, Ezio didn't know of the brotherhood until half of his family got killed.
I think Ezio achieved more than Alta´r in his life, but that's just what I think.

Not really. All that Ezio did was help a bit in Europe, Altairs influence is everywhere.

During his own time, Alta´r's influence was only in and around the Middle East. It stretched to Europe when the Polos came along and he sent his Assassins around the known world after disbanding them from Masyaf. It's quite possible the people in East Asia and other regions weren't even aware of Alta´r's existence, especially considering that the Chinese Assassins (or just Shao Jun) didn't even have a hidden blade.

She had a hidden blade, but on her feet.
He spread the Assassin's across, if I remember the Masyaf Invasion, he spread them all across the start guilds everywhere.

Of course Altair is the greatest!

He comes from a time when the creed wasn't about cashing in for a few quick dollars from a few sad spin off titles and then appealing to the most gullible, patriotic nation on earth to extract more cash in a burn and earn exercise!

I don't understand that second sentence. The Assassins had already been in China since the 3rd century BCE, and when I said hidden blade, I obviously meant the hidden blade, not just a hidden blade somewhere on her body...

But you see, the Assassin's went public in the Crusades, much like the Templars, correct? at that time, most of the Assassin's where in the Levantine, I believe most European countries did not even have a guild, so when Altair spread them apart, the Assassin's became more global.
