No More Tiers, Just play the game

Hey community. I just wanted to comment, especially for new players, to just enjoy the game for what it is. There is no "god" tier or whatever else tier. When you pull a champ from a crystal, instead of worrying what tier they are in, just enjoy learning the ins and outs of that character. Of course there are a lot of champs that are more useful than others but honestly just play and rank up who you enjoy using. The tier list is one person's opinion and yet some people think that list is what drives this game like the overall rule to great champs vs bad champs. For example, I love playing Psylocke, is she the best, no. In fact a lot of champs do what she does much better. I just love her play style and the way she flows. I enjoy this game and one of the major reasons i do is because i don't subscribe to on what "tier" a certain champ falls. Merry Christmas everyone and enjoy playing this awesome game.

    Champion tiers don’t mean that much during the 1st 3 acts when you can pull “meme tier” 4* that help you breeze through. At least compared to when I started playing 4 years ago.

    My first 5* was Yellow Jacket and took him to rank 4. He got me through most of act 5. But past this you need specific champions for specific challenges. I’d never rank up YJ now if I hadn’t already. Other than arena I’ve not used him in years.

    The length of time it takes to get all the resources to take up to rank 4 or 5 means for most you have to make tough choices about who to rank up. And the choices invariably will lead to only ranking up God tier champs.

    Foxhero! Is that you? Anyhow the teirs are how most people categorize the usefulness of a champ and really helps decide which you should use your limited resources on to beat certain content. That's just my opinion though Merry Christmas.

    The opposition to the concept of tiers tends to come from those who have ranked from the lesser tiers. I’m not claiming causation though.

    I rank based on what I want to do next in the game. Mostly seems to follow the tier lists because the lists are fundamentally a ranking of the most useful champs in the game.

    Fun. It's a game. The point is to have fun.

    If you wanna be competitive or spend millions of dollars to have said fun then no problem, that's how you have fun. People hate being told what to do yet have no issues telling others the same thing.

    You can do both, rank "god" tier champs up and champs that are fun. I stopped playing for a year but came back 2 months ago because I wasn't having any fun back then. I'm back now and I refuses to rank up champs I personally like. No more "prestige" race because it's not fun for me. So far in that time I came back I R4'd X-23, Colossus, Domino and R5'd Morningstar and Hyperion is next. Yes those are good and great champs but it's who I enjoy playing. I even have OG Cap (not IW) at R4 which I did last year and boy that was a fun choice and I don't regret it also, perfect parries and soaking up block is fun.

    I got a 6 star Mordo last week and I was over the mood because I wanted one for a while. He's a great champ to me and he won't be sitting on defense only. I might even R2 him, no one can tell me otherwise. If my alliance has an issue with it (they don't) then to bad, they don't play the game for me but they do make the game more fun.

    That's super. @Saiyan (hee hee)

    @DNA3000 I like the way you think

    That was less giving the finger to tier sheets, and more giving the finger to their alliance war competition (Groot has a very specific utility on higher AW maps on a very specific node: you either know how to beat him there, or you don't, and if you don't, you're just stuck).

    Are you playing purely for fun? Then sure. I have fun when i accomplish certain milestones and I wont be able to do that without investing in champs that are worth investment. The tier lists are very useful and even if I have some disagreements I think we can all say that the god tier champs are very good and the ones that are meme tiers arent very good if you dont want to specify. Also tier lists arent preferences which is what you are mixing it up with. It is a subjective list that attempts to be as objective as possible. For example some tier lists are made my players who have no idea to play quake but they still rate them the highest because shes one of the best if played right. No matter how well I play groot they cant compete with other champs as long as your skill remains constant and the only variable is the champ itself. I personally am glad I looked at tier lists cuz damn I wouldnt have completed even half the content if I ranked up champs I thought were cool when I was starting out.

    Oh stop. There are a limited amount of resources to rank up champions, so you have to rate them and decide who is worth to take up, especially as you start moving through content and the lower *** champs become less relevant. When I first started playing I didn't think about who would be relevant in the long term and ended up blowing tons of (then limited) T4b on 4* champs that were worthless in the next stage of the game.

    Great that you like Psylocke, I wouldn't waste resources on her because as you said there are champs that do what she does better. Ignoring that and ranking up any random champ would lead to more grinding content to get resources when I get a better champ. It's a waste of time, or money, or both.

    I have over 100 T4CC crystals, 2000 t4cc fragments. 200s+ AQ map 6/7 crystals all there.

    Hardly a limited amount of resources.

    Which node? Only one I could think of is Aegis Heavy. Might be a pain if your champ has a short heavy reach.

    I believe it was Aegis Heavy + Intercept.

    Groot a beast on defense? That’s a first. Lol

    I appreciate tier lists. If it weren't for them, I would have started playing this game thinking that Hulk was "the strongest there is" and Wolverine was "the best at what he does." And that just isn't so for this game.
