The old tier list used to:
- 1) give the same rating to Garrick, Firehawk and Leon.
2) rate "D" none but Esabel
3) tell who's good and who's not.
To avoid creating an S tier, everyone got ranked a bit lower to let Garrick, Firehawk, Zem, Taurus, etc have their own tier;
the legend on the upper-right corner sais:
A Metagame Important; Essential units
B Good; Sub-Meta
C Out of Meta, still Good
As you can see, C tier is just out of meta ==> they don't work in every team and perform a little worse than B that perform a little worse than A(essential).
Only D tier means "unplayable", while the old "C" tier meant so.
It's just a "tune down" of the old tiers to avoid creating confusion among A(essential in every team), B(great in almost every team) and C(need the right setup to perform).
Many people used to upgrade heroes they found useless because they thought an A had the same value of another, while we all know that Firehawk, Zem, Garrick, Xanos, Gizmo, etc can't be compared to Tanya, Slim, Riley, Leon, etc...
PS: if you have any suggestion about specific heroes' performace, write it down Overall = mean value of all the ratings. If a hero is A in arena and C everywhere else, he's and overall B
