God Tier = Perfect Score - 9 Threshold out of 9 Threshold Deck:
Tier 1 = 8 Threshold Requirement
Tier 2 = 7 Threshold Requirement
Tier 3 = 6 Threshold Requirement
Tier 4 = 5 Threshold or lower.
Rating Categories and Scaling:
We use a newly developed category system called:
(C)(A)(P)(E)(S), for "Superhero" decks = Consistent Affordable Perfect Easy Speed decks.
(P)+(C)+(S) = Decks' tier score, for Tierlist placement.
(A)+(E) = Decks' player friendly score, for player consideration
For each Category there is 1-3 scaling:
3 Threshold = best
2 Threshold = good
1 Threshold = not good
(P)=Perfect = How unlikely are you to lose a single encounter?
3 Threshold = 80% or more 15/15 runs are perfect
2 Threshold = 50%-79% 15/15 runs are perfect
1 Threshold = 49% or less 15/15 runs are perfect
(C)=Consistency = How often does the deck make it to, and clear the tier4 boss?
3 Threshold = 90% or more 15/15 runs clear the tier4 boss
2 Threshold = 75%-89% 15/15 runs clear the tier4 boss
1 Threshold = 74% or less 15/15 runs clear the tier4 boss
(S)=Speed= How fast is the deck at clearing the arena? (Speed will vary with PC's, but this should be a general rule of thumb - for example - the Dream deck would be a 2, and a quash rush deck would be a 1.)
3 Threshold = 30 minutes or less per 15/15 run clear
2 Threshold = 45 minutes-31 minutes per 15/15 run clear
1 Threshold = 46 minutes or more per 15/15 run clear
The two categories below are important, but carry no weight for the decks' tierlist score.
(A)=Affordable = How affordable is the deck to build?
Note: Focusing on hard to obtain cards outside of the F2P PvE experience.
3 Threshold = Less than $20 to build (not including freely farmed PvE cards)
2 Threshold = $20-$100 (not including freely farmed PvE cards)
1 Threshold = Over $100 (not including freely farmed PvE cards)
(E)=Easy = How easy is the deck to play?
3 Threshold = Very easy to play
2 Threshold = Some unique interactions you need to remember / somewhat easy
1 Threshold = Fairly difficult to play, lot of interactions / not easy
Is there a deck you would like to add to the list?
Requirements to add/suggest a deck be added to the list = 4 Lines post:
- "Deck Name", "By: (Deck Creator)", "# runs completed" (Should be a deck you've played at least 5 times, with fair recollection of), "(Your Name - Date)"
- Link to Decklist (Preferred on HEXTCGBROWSER - so folks can sync with collections to see what they are missing)
- #P + #C + #S = # Tier Threshold / #A + #E = # Consideration Threshold
- Deck Note: (1 line note about deck/when it was made)
Do you have updates or tweaks you would like to suggest to a deck-list posted here? Do you have varying results, or disagree with any tier placements? Do you have any suggested improvements for the rating system/wording for rating system? Please let us know. This list is meant to be a dynamic living bar to help both new and older players gauge deck effectiveness.
