So I had this idea that there are tier lists for the overall game, why not rank characters based on how well they assist certain characters? That way we can help people new to the character build better teams from Day 1, and not drop the character. This was something I came up with as I was experimenting with what projectile assist to use for American Teleport mixups, since some are clearly better than others.
Generally speaking, the tier lists will be kept under spoiler tags, and there will also be spoilers within the spoilers for sub-groupings.
So without further ado, here goes:
- This does not have every character or assist in the game, just the stuff I’m familiar with. In general, these are the assists that I feel are “viable” for a Captain America-on-point team, though I do make note of which assists in particular are garbage for Captain. Feel free to add characters to my ranks if you more or less agree with how I place everything else.
- First, I made a projectile assist list since the Captain pretty much requires one to be on the field.
- Second, there is a list that ranks assists you can use for the third member of your team, though that need not be the anchor. These are ranked more just on general usability, so they will resemble a “general” assist tier list more than the projectile one. Again, the stuff I’m familiar with, not everything on the cast. The really great ones will have explorations of why they are better than similar assists. And yes “This also puts [X fantastic point character] on your team” will be given as a reason the assist is good, though that doesn’t give any extra points as an assist.
- The tiers are just “Great”, “Good”, “Below Average” and “Garbage”, I don’t want to try and differentiate C and B-tier, or D and C-tier. Currently, the top two and bottom two are ranked together so we can discuss which goes where.
*Shoutouts to Ken123103 for even being able to do those links. You da man. It’s worth noting that he usually uses Nova-B to help him do a corner relaunch anyway though.
NOTES: These lists are being published unfinished! Also, within the tiers there is no particular order. Specifically, Sentinel-A and Hawkeye-A are tied, with Arthur-B a close second. Troll comments are obviously trolling. Color comments are all about blue because if you’re not running blue Captain America, you’re free. Unless you’re Condor_Missile
The tier lists have been moved to my Google Docs, I was starting to run out of characters to describe all the characters . . . wait, what? Anyway, here’s the link:
