for the most part, the tops get banned. So, storm\cable\sent\mag\wm\im. I think most people can agree with that.
I think the standard format everyone is going with is the ratio system. Basically you get 4 points max, theres a 2 point character class consisting of the better characters and a 1 point character class consisting of the weaker ones. I assume you can pick three, 1 point characters and you can’t pick 2 ratio 2’s because you would only have 2 people on your team and thats not possible.
Ratio 2 Characters (combinable with Ratio 1 only):
I got this from the evo world section where this is supposedly the rules for evo low tier this year. wong was the one who posted it up.
the list is missing morrigan. Combined with tron its make her unfair. I don’t want to go into the details but her mixup game is too strong. If the ratio system was put into place to prevent deadly tron combinations, morrgain+tron has to be considered. If you look @ the list, cyke, rogue, cammy, psy, mega all have been cut off from having tron.
i think sim\mummy run away should also be considered. They can not fight and certain low tiers can’t do anything about it. Also, either of those 2 characters can get really nasty with tron.
speed up wolvie and ruby heart also have to be taken into consideration with tron. Speed up wolvie gets the craziest crossups in the game and ruby heart can create instant xups or instant original side crossups with her super. Tron lets her recombo after it and if you have bar to do it again, it can be over fast.
marrow+tron is also the pushing the limit. You have an extremely fast character with a safe super in qcb+pp which can be used behind tron to fucking nuke assist. I think c.lk+tron, c.rh, qcb+pp done right is like 80% life to an assist of average defense. Then the team can also relayer with tron all day to force an easy error just like cammy+tron.
jug ron too much? trip+tron, head crush is pretty much a dead something.
the ratio 2 list isn’t exactly low tier. You have strider, doom, cyke, BH. Obviously, those characters have a distinct advantage over some weaker based ones but if you pick a beast, you have to deal with 2 bums but then the question becomes, who the hell is going to stop cyke with bar and ken\son son AA? you could pick ruby\cyke\ken and just run around building bar with j.rh with ruby. Dhc to cyke and run around with my aa and shoot em.
imo, the ratio system has a pretty good setup. It prevents people from picking non low tier teams like mega\cammy ron or psy\cammy ron but still has a side effect to it when doom\cyke can come in and zone off the screen that low tiers have a hard time dealing with.
Me and mixup play simply by banning a bunch of characters. No top 4, strider, doom, spiral, BH, wm, IM, sim. Everyone else is playable but, the dumb shit like psy\cammy ron is considered “low tier” in our fights. Which really isn’t a low tier team.
does everyone feel like the ratio 2 system is the right way to go? does the ratio 2 field need a few more characters to be considered into it? or even ban a few more characters. I don’t think cyke even deserves to be mentioned for low tier. He’s just too damn good.
The ratio 2 system could work out but banning a few more characters like, cyke, strider, doom, bh would round out the list a little better. Any of those characters with bar and a proper team could really wreck shop.
