  3. I made a tier list based on average rankings from top players

So just like the title said, I noticed quite a variance in the tier lists put out by some top players, so I attempted to average them in order to make a list. Here's some details before I post it:

1. The top players I used were ZeRo, Esam, VoiD, and Leffen since they were the only players I could find who made videos for 2.0. If you can link me to any other top player's lists, I can use their list to create more averages.

2. If they did not rank a character (Esam didn't rank Plant, for example), I averaged the placement from everyone else's list.

3. A few of these guys did certain tiers unordered. For tiers that were unordered, I found the middle placement number within that tier and used it for the ranking. For example, Leffen didn't order midtier. The average ranking of mid tier was 42nd, so I used 42 for every character in his mid tier.

4. I decided to universally group certain echo fighters. I grouped Samus and Dark Samus, Peach and Daisy, Pit and Dark Pit, and Simon and Richter. I did NOT group Marth and Lucina, Roy and Chrom, or Ryu and Ken. If other tier lists didn't follow these groupings, (like VoiD put Pit and Dark Pit a whole tier apart), I put them with the highest ranking member of the group. Also, I counted Pokémon Trainer as one character. If a list put them separate, I put the character with the highest ranking Pokémon.

5. Arbitrarily, I made top and bottom tiers 10 characters each, and high mid and low 17 each.

Without further ado:

Top Tier: Peach/Daisy, Pichu, Lucina, Wolf, Inkling, Pikachu, Olimar, Wario, Shulk, Young Link

High Tier: Fox, Ike, Palutena, Roy, Greninja, Snake, R.O.B., Chrom, Yoshi, Link, Marth, Pokémon Trainer, Mega Man, Cloud, Zero Suit Samus, Mii Swordfighter, Mario

Mid Tier: Ness, Meta Knight, Falco, Donkey Kong, Simon/Richter, Pac-Man, Mewtwo, Toon Link, Bowser, Lucario, Sonic, Lucas, Ganondorf, Mii Gunner, Pit/Dark Pit, Samus/Dark Samus, Corrin

Low Tier: Dr. Mario, Bayonetta, Captain Falcon, Incineroar, King Dedede, Wii Fit Trainer, Ridley, Diddy Kong, Sheik, Villager, Ice Climbers, Luigi, Jigglypuff, Ken, Duck Hunt, Ryu, Zelda

Bottom Tier: Piranha Plant, Mr. Game & Watch, Robin, Rosalina & Luma, Isabelle, Bowser Jr., Kirby, Mii Brawler, King K. Rool, Little Mac

Pretty interesting results. What do y'all think of this?

I don't blame Japan for picking disaster as the kanji to represent 2018. Just look at the internet in it's pathetic state!

Yeah I agree. I personally think Shulk and Young Link should go down, while Fox and Greninja should go to top

Why in gods name are people putting K. Rool in bottom 3? Some dumb people, I swear, don't know what they're talking about. I know he's no high tier, but by god he's not worse than Kirby
Most Wanteds (likely) - Banjo-Kazooie, Frisk, Steve
Most Wanteds (not getting in) - Sans, Max (Shining Force), Yami Yugi

Nobody does. That site and its "tier lists" are a joke.

Eventhubs doesn't even have Wario in the top 20 and Ganondorf in the end of low tier/beginning of bottom tier.

This so much

Especially in 1.2 when Leffen put him as the actual worst character in the game.
