I’m just curious how others feel, cause there seems to be a distinct split.
I’ve always been the type where I play whoever I enjoy or feel I naturally do well with, and for the most part ignore tier listings when deciding who I play. That said however, I have chosen not to play certain characters, knowing full well how the general public views them. i.e. I’ve been less likely to play a top tier character in the past because some looked down on it.
So the poll is simple. Do you let tiers dictate your choice in any way when choosing characters? Or do you play whoever you damn well feel like playing, regardless of the tier listings?
This applies to all games, and by all means, explain your vote if you want.
What brought this on for me is something rather stupid/petty really lol. In Virtua Fighter I recently decided to start playing Jacky. A character often regarded as a higher tiered character, and a rather basic character compared to some others. At first I kinda felt bad about the idea, but friends helped me realize I shouldn’t let tiers dictate who I play. I mean, I knew this, but I still worried people thought I was “selling out” or something to that sort.
