Yeah, but to be honest, it’s not really a big deal what it’s called, the name is purely functional really.
Those characters are left in because no one really uses them in the UK. This tournament is for fun and to encourage people to pick up new characters, and just to get things happening for game really. The UK scene is brass. We have one machine in the entire country, and we’ve only had that for about a month.
In my opinion, when most of your players are weak then tiers really don’t matter. Tiers are based on players ability to exploit the potential of a character and their relationship to the game system. 90% of our players can’t do that yet.
I’m going to be running this monthly, and the roster will most likely change if certain characters are dominating. I’m sure UK heads would appreciate some knowledgable input on this, feel free to come over to Neo Empire and discuss.
