PVP Tier List overhaul

Published Tuesday, 14 June 2022

Almost 70% of all PVP ratings have been changed! Find out the details inside the post.

First of all, I would like to thank brah for all the work he did on the PVP tier list over the last few months. Recently he decided to quit Counter Side and move to other games, but we're hoping that one day, he will be back. He was one of the best SEA PVP players, and without his insights and knowledge, we would be lost.

Thank you, friend, for all the help.

The spot of our team's PVP specialist was empty for a few days, but not anymore. I would like to announce that Pie, another top PVP player from SEA, will be joining the team. Some of his guides were already posted on the site and now he will be helping us with the PVP ratings for SEA and the Global server.

So, let's go back to what's changed. We've been thinking about overhauling the PVP ratings for some time already and finally, we managed to put some work on that. The first big change is the removal of E and F ratings because, to be honest, D-F ratings were all just various shades of 'don't use that unit.'

Furthermore, we've redefined what each rating actually means, and we've split the definitions for PVP and PVE. While for PVE they remain roughly the same, here's what the new PVP ratings mean:

  • SSS - A god. Used even when banned,

  • SS - Overpowered employee. Almost always strong when unbanned but it's possible to counter-pick him.

  • S - Exceptional employee. Often a must-have pick in certain meta teams,

  • A - Generally a strong pick or a key unit for non-meta teams,

  • B - Useable pick but more often purely situational to counter another unit in a given week. Also, good pick when upped,

  • C - Decent on up but, must have a suitable meta team as well to be considered,

  • D - Honestly, don't bother.

Thank you Pie for helping with that huge undertaking.

A lot of reviews for units were also updated to reflect the changes in their PVP ranks. And would like to thank Bonk for rewriting a lot of reviews of units that are only available in the KR region and adjusting their ratings both for PVP and PVE. Meanwhile, Yellow Elephante and Trip worked on updating the reviews for SEA employees - huge thanks to them too.

Also, for now, PVP ratings for Global will remain the same, but soon the same overhaul will be applied to them too! So Global players, please have a bit more patience.
