There are a couple of things there. Five years ago on Shimano, if you were riding somewhere with steep singletrack climbs, you were on a double. That means dropping chains guaranteed. And I mean regularly if you are an aggressive rider. I almost never drop Eagle chains.  Beyond that the longevity of Eagle drivetrains, at least GX and up, is beyond anything we have seen before. They last for ages without needing much attention. So with wide range, chain security and durability make me stand by my statement.  Also the new Shimano stuff seems to be excellent.
