I was chatting up a friend from another IRE game and they were thinking about jumping over and they asked for my tier list. I realized how probably awful my tier list is from a biased serpent standpoint so I was curious about everyone else who thought about the current state of classes. This is also 1v1 standpoint, we are not assuming group.
+Though feel free to add a tier list for group combat if you want! (SS)S
+ For those who ask about the letters from a tournament/competitive standpoint:
(SS) = Broken/Busted (Think Infernal with 251s and Frenzy) Not applied in this thread. Can use if you wish.
S = Dominant/Best Class. Consistently wins every matchup.
A+ = Somewhere between too strong and just right. Most people can pick it up and do decently well, and in the hands of a pro it's lethal.
A = Solo Viable. Wins most matchups.
B = Viable. Not consistent. Struggles with some classes.
C = Niche use. One tricks.
+ Not to say one tricks are bad, they usually go over and above to prove a point. But the class itself can't just be picked up and dominate the scene.
D = Unviable for competitive. Should not be used. And if someone loses to this tier/person, you/they usually learn the counterplay and never lose again.
(E/F/G) = Never seen. Not applied in this thread. Can use if you truly wish.
Is how it works, for those unfamiliar. Some tier lists have A+ S+ SS SSS, but we're not exactly 90 classes deep and such. So throw in your personal tier list, biased or unbiased. Just be sure to mark which. Should also be interesting to see the more combatant heavy agree or disagree on where things are.
Infernal (SnB, DWC, DWB, 2H)
Paladin (SnB, DWC, DWB, 2H)
Runewarden (SnB, DWC, DWB, 2H)
Kythra's Tier List (I am assuming artefacted and automation/optimization because that's how I do) (Unbiased
the best I can as playing mainly pure aff classes)S
Paladin SnB A
Apostate (On the fence here between A or A+)
~Depthswalker (I dont know enough about the class yet. Maybe B tier if you cant change routes on the go)B
(Everyone has anti-vivi and vivi-mindgaming coding
(Hugalaz says surprise but smex)C
Jester (In its current state. Pre-suicide mouse changes was A or so)
I encourage combatants and non-combatants to post their own tier lists, and get thoughtful discussion.
Posts like this help retirees, or people who visit our forums and get interested by tier lists. It's how I got into competitive Smash in any case. ^ ^;; (Go Amsa and moving Yoshi up two tiers!)
Note: As usual for most of my threads. You can agree to disagree, but please no shit talking. I can't exactly mod/remove posts, but I prefer the public postings to be a place newbies can look and see a more professional air/side of things. Thanks!
