People on the forums view the term ‘OP’ much the same way a mouse views a hungry cat. I’m genuinely interested what everyone thinks about all of the characters, so I have devised a system of ranking that will eliminate the term for the most part and show me what you guys think. It goes as follows:
S+ - Incredibly OP characters, ones that can win without trying or simply cannot be killed. The Beta Wraith was notorious for this.
S - OP, not completely unbeatable but much to powerful for most people. Often relies on specific strategy/exploit as opposed to overall strength, like the old Behemoth + Rollspam.
S- - While stronger than other characters and requiring a nerf, still beatable for the most part and only requiring value changes and not reworks.
A - An exceptional character, not overpowered nor underpowered. Exactly where they should. This character should be easy to kill but also easy to play as and do well, and do it’s job well.
B - A good character, either outclassed by other choices, too weak in certain areas, or requiring specific team combinations or strategy.
C - A mediocre character. Not particularly bad, but at the same time not particularly good either.
D - This character is awful, but has some redeeming quality that saves them.
F - This character is useless. Don’t use it.
Here is my personal ranking.
S+ - (Kraken)
S - (Wraith) (Sunny)
S- - :caira: (Caira) (Griffin) (Torvald)
A - : (Hank) :hyde_2: (Hyde) (Maggie) (Crow) (Goliath)
B - (Cabot) (Lazarus) (Slim) (Markov) :parnell: (Parnell) (Behemoth)
C - (Bucket) (Abe)
F - (Daisy) (Jk)
If anyone wants explanation, I’d love to answer.
